It is so girlie! =) Maybe I should get one for my female shepherd to make her more friendly looking.
Did it work out for the bike ride?

|Zeeva||Zeeva new harness: what do you think?!?|

Perfect. The harness was snugger than before. I pulled it out of the cat room and it had cat pee on it so I bleached it and hosed it down. It's likely itchy. Can't believe I didn't realize all this...
Thank you! Time to get a new harness and pray it works c:

|Bear L||The only time my shepherd did this was when I was using a black harness that I thought was better for her. After couple days later I found out why she wasn't too thrilled with the bike rides suddenly - the harness was rubbing her arm pits raw. I stopped using that harness and she's happy to bike with me again. Do you think the harness need to be refitted if it's not been used for a while?|

|Nigel||I went through a stretch with Zoey like this. I thought injury at first, but she checked out fine. I stopped using the harness and switched to a flat collar, that helped but occasionally she would still stop. I would disconnect her and just walk for a bit, then hook her back up and go again. She got over what ever the issue was and is fine now, she runs like a maniac most of the time, glad I have hydraulic disks. Zeeva may pull out of a flat collar, but maybe check the fit of her harness and see if its irritating her.|

She stopped running: walky doggie
Zeeva has been walky doggying with me for a few days. We took a break for a couple days and tried again today.
She refuses to run. In fact she starts walking backwards and nearly slipped her harness today.
I know she knows how to run along side the bike in her harness attached to the walky doggie. We used to run 4-6 miles in Chicago. In Chicago she didn't exactly enjoy walky doggying but she had the stamina and did it regardless. The last time I took her (maybe 2 days ago) she did about 1/4 of a mile then turned home and wouldn't move unless we went toward that direction. The time before that she did about 1/2 mile and turned home; same thing.
How can I build her stamina if she will not run along side the bike any more?
I took her off the walky doggy and I ran with her just fine. But I'm thinking I need to put her in a harness and run with her; then re-train her to run along side of a bike. UGH! I just don't want to do that :c I want her to quickly and naturally have her run in her walky doggy the way we used to run in Chicago.
Smokey, my husky, still runs without any hassle.
