Can Shepherds do biking
Basically, before i got my dog i was in reasonable shape, but my and my fiancee fell apart, and i let myself go. I have a 8 month old shepherd, and want to start biking again. Im wondering will she be able to handle it? The journey ill take is roughly 1-2 miles ( Not that long ) But it would be twice a day 5-6 days a week. ( She would be leashed on the way to the trail, but once we got their i would unleash her and let her run )
The trainer i worked with in the past told me not to over exercise her, and that this would be to much for her.
Also will she actually follow me and stay out the way? She had trouble with bikes in the past ( Constantly attacking them after one hit her ) But i worked hard with my trainer and now she simply ignores them. Even when a friend i know was cycling in circles around her with his shepherd, my dog just didn't care.
If you guys think its to much to ask of her at this age, i will obviously cycle alone for abit, then when she is older try with her.
Thanks in advance for responses
