    Check op shops for trailers beloz, mostly they are kids trailers available, but are easily modified for k9's there's actually no difference apart from seating. The only thing I would look at is under seating clamps instead of the frame attachment, if you turn left all is fine with the frame clamp, but turn a sharp right be careful because they are easily flipped.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    HArness wise we just run Pippi on her walking harness which attaches on her back. Because she is little I dont use leads round her neck and when biking she is a puller (and can actually pull me along) so the harness means she can put all her weight into it.

    With Barney, he is just run on his flat collar with a lead...it's just more for safety, i.e. he knows the lead s on so cant just run off. But he does sometimes go without it

    I was thinking maybe I should get a harness with some sort of padding

    I thought riding and having a dog on a lead was illegal.
    I also thought that dogs had to be under control (not off leash) when out in public.

    I am probably wrong, I am sometimes and far too tired to look up the answers.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    We have off leash areas all through the suburbs in Canberra. 'Under control' in those areas means having a reliable recall.

    Not sure about the bikes and leads thing.

    Thankyou Beau, extreemly informative and motivational.
    So, ive been planning this for ages, read this, and thought, "right, stop putting it off, get going" got my bike, my dog, my back yard. Got on bike and fell off. Got back on bike, and fell off again. Bugger.
    Hubby's encouraging remarks: "you know they say you never forget how to ride a bike".
    I need a straight road in my back yard to practice on. The dog is very confused as to why im on the floor!

    Yea I think bike and dog might be illegal (dont knwo for a fact)....which is a bit OTT if you ask me (and is probably why it is ignored)

    I must remember to use a flat lead when I take Banjo with the bike. I use a thick 'parking lead' and I had it block my hand brake a couple of times!
