Slowly training the pups

...to be passengers in my newly assembled rig. I've been acclimating them slowly- just tossing treats in and letting them sit and munch. I've been looking for a harness that has factory attached snap rings back AND front, but have had no luck. Anyone have a source for a heavy duty harness that I can leash to at back and chest area? All metal in lieu of plastic snaps and buckles would be good.

This is my favorite thread!

MotoJ,

I attach to the front/chest part of my dog's harness with a small carabiner.
I also take out the bottom of the seat and put a dog bed in giving her a bigger and lower platform to sit, this may help once you are moving. -p

Mr. Mellow, harness.....

I got this nylon high vision harness for my Welsh Terrier a while back. All the stress points are metal d-rings, whereas adjusters, etc. are hard plastic. He pulls very hard for his mere 20 pounds. This harness is more than secure for him.

Will post the sidecar harness gizmo I having made by a tack shop in a few days. It will attach my dog's existing harness to the luggage rack on the sidecar.

Harness

Been using the Roadie for a couple of years now. Works well once you figure out how to get the dog in the thing.

Red Dog

Hi everyone
Don't know if this has already been said.......if it comes your way, you have to see the film "Red Dog". A most excellent Aussie film. The star does not get to ride in a hack....but does get to sit on a Honda 4. A hack scene would have given the film a 6 star rating out of 5
You will laugh your head off and cry till you are sick when you watch this little gem.

While he's not in the sidecar in this photo, you do get a good view of Barley's harness. I like the durability of it, the brightness (always a plus around traffic), and the handle on the back. The handle was designed to help lift dogs up on steep climbs, but I use it for reassurance when I want him to stay with me in the face of some intense provocation, like a child holding a burger too low in his presence.

My dogs usually get all excited and start barking if I simply put on my helmet. On this particular day they had just come back from a short run and were just relaxin' in the tub as I fiddled about with a new extendable camera tripod. They patiently waited as I moved about to see what different effects the angle and the movement of the monopod would make on any future videos. Both Murph and Dusty weren't really into doing much, as they were pretty relaxed, as is. The great thing about Dusty and Murph, is that they will sit for hours on end in the hack and be as content as larks, as I do maintenance work or putz about with a camera.

Just moments after this camera piddling, they were back to their normal self and ready for another adventure. The music was not really synced for the video, but was just sort of a quick fill. I was actually just trying to see how the camera would react as I moved the tripod down and back or such. I have some DIY dog helmets being finished out for them at the moment. It they turn out ok, I'll post something so that anyone else can see how the helmets were made. They are in the process of getting some bias tape stitched to the edges on them, so hopefully I'll get them for some photos soon. That is, if they work out ok and look good. I'll have to paint them in order to remove some logo stuff on the hard plastic, but I am hoping to have them up and ready in a day or so. Like any other DIY project, they may or may not work out in the long run. From what I have seen, I believe they will though, but will have to wait and see.
