Be careful with your elderly pooch. I have two dogs, one 3 and the other 13. The 13 year old is game, but her hips are going, and the bounciness and side-load of the sidecar is hard on her. They use a lot of muscle staying upright and gripping the floor of the tub. I took her for a couple rides around the 'hood, and even though she enjoyed it, she was sore all the next day. She has to stay home now :(
The 3 year old is resilient and his joints can take some abuse, being so young. Just think if you were driving the sidecar- would it be easier if you were a teenager, or in your 80s?
Great advice! My blue heeler is pretty healthy for his age but does have poor vision unfortunately. I promised him a sidecar in his lifetime but who knows he might not be comfortable in it. Hoping to try one out this year to get the feel for driving one..
