Whether your dog is naughty or nice they are is your best friend and part of the family. Studies have shown that most families also give their pet a gift as well. According to the local radio station 50 percent of families will buy Christmas gifts for their dog at an average cost of $46.00
So what does your dog really want? If they are an active dog they will be hoping to get a bicycle dog leash . If you are not familiar with a bicycle dog leash it permits you to ride your bicycle with your faithful and energetic dog running safely alongside.
Right, so I interviewed Percy the dog about being naughty or nice and he barked:
Don’t I keep the lawn free from those pesky squirrels
Take you on walks to the local park
Cheer you up when you are having a bad day
Provide a head to pat
Greet you at the door each day with enthusiasm
Provide a friendly playmate for the kids
Dog experts and veterinarians agree that cycling is one of the best ways to give your pet the daily exercise it needs. This won’t work for every dog but those that are active will quickly learn the routine. A friend and owner of Percy mentioned he lost 2 pounds with the bike leash.
A bicycle leash attaches to your bicycle (there are different styles) permitting you to maintain control. If your pet gets easily distracted by squirrels or cats they can pull, so you need a bicycle dog leash that helps you maintain stability and control. They also are designed so that they do not get tangled up in the bicycle itself when running along.
Depending where you live you can ride along scenic bike paths in a park, quiet residential streets or country roads. Along a forest path, dirt road or grassy shoulders is also a good choice. When starting out for the first time just go for short runs and gradually build up so the pet gets used your bicycle dog leash. Pay attention to your dog's body language at first and they will get used to it quickly and learn to love it. Sometimes too they like to slow down along the way and do watch your speed going down hills.
Some people think that owners are cruel by making their pets run like this, however most dogs seem to love it. Once they get into a rhythm with the bike which most do naturally, they runs along happily.
So what your dog really wants this Christmas is a bicycle dog leash . They are fun and very inexpensive and will allow you to spent time together with your pet and get some exercise as well.
