Hi Catneck- nice rig, nice ol' pooch. I started my dog Fred out just by coaxing him into the sidecar at the start of and return of our daily walks. I'd pull back the cover, sit on the back and lure him in with a treat, then pet him and talk to him. Then we'd go for a walk. When we got back, same thing. We did this for a month or so, until he would jump right in.

Then i started putting him in there and clipping him in the harness, and i sat on the bike. Talked to him, petted him, etc. Did that for a couple weeks. Eventually I would start and let the bike run at idle, and after a few days of that we went for a ride. He's only been now four or five times, but he jumps right it and even points his nose so i can put the Doggles on him!

I've only tooled around my residential neighbor so far, and not very fast. One thing we do is occasionally stop and visit with people in the neighborhood. We also go to the park and to the sandwich shop, where he gets a treat. When people wave, sometimes we pull over, and they pet Fred. He loves attention! It's all positive reinforcement that he associates with riding in the sidecar.

Eventually I'll take him out on bigger roads at higher speeds.

Oh yeah- I take the seat out of the car. I leave the back in, but without the seat, the dog can sit lower in the tub, and I think he feels more secure, and his feet can grip the mat in the bottom better than if he's perched higher up on the seat.

Hope this is helpful. I'm sure Clarence will get the hang of it!

You also can't go wrong with one of hdFlame's Pooch Pads. Bryson loves his, and he's become a better rider because of it. It keeps him from sliding around in the tub, as well as keeping him comfy and level. Best part, Bobby can do it with detachable straps so you can pull it out and convert to a normal seat quickly, or in our case, throw the pooch pad in the tent for Bryson's bed. No affiliation, but with all the new pooches riding, I figured I'd throw this tidbit out there.

After three months of trying to get Niki into the side car, I about gave up. One day a buddy was over and asked how the side car training was coming along. I told him that I was about to give up. He called Niki over picked her up and put her in the side car and said "SIT/STAY" lol, after about 5 mins in the side car I started the bike up and rode around the property. Two years later I can't go on a two wheeler ride, because she get pissed at me.

I've tried different types of foam in my Hannigan rig, but on the dirt roads and winter damaged pavement here in Vermont Barley was shaken up like a ball in a paint can. I discovered a memory foam dog bed at Orvis.com ($75 since it was a return with another dog's name on it) and it made a HUGE difference! Before, he was comfy...but not quite enough to sleep. Now, he stretches out and naps on those 14 hour days on the road.

Bryson's usual ride, the red Ural, is down right now. So he got to spend this weekend riding to CRAP with MrsDonkeys on my Bonnie rig.

Just fooling around with the camera a bit and Murph will patiently wait for any photos to be done. I don't know about him being a "cow dog," but he darn sure is a native Texan. :-) Unfortunately, his six guns, holster, badge and Lone Ranger mask were packed away in a storage bin at the time these photos were taken.

The hood ornament on the hack was roped down to pull the new bumper up to mark for some mounting holes. If I can just each Murph some ropin' tricks, I'll bet he can lasso that sucker from the hack seat and hogtie it pretty quick. :-)

Hannity likes it a lot better with the Doggles (only has one eye, have to protect it).

At 16 lbs not a lot of ballast but he likes to lean on the outside of the car

I've taken her a couple time around my neighborhood and I took her on one short ride to the store with my son sitting in the hack with her. But this was her first hour plus ride. We hit some fun dirt roads and even passed some people walking dogs. She was really good and just sat or layed down on the seat.
Not sure if she likes the goggles, but she tolerates them fairly well. I didn't use any thing to tie her down. Cant decide if I should do that or not.
