    My redbone coonhound mix on his second foray in the sidecar. First ride last weekend. Just a little toodle around the neighborhood. He's a natural, and quite a ham, too. If he could wave like the Queen of England I'm sure he would.

    I've narrowed it down to 'earth'. Or 'Baltimore'.
    MotoJ,

    Put that pup in the sidecar and come to the Baltimore RTE! We're going for barbeque soon! Check the link in the sig. :deal

    If I didn't know any better, I'd say that dog was smiling from ear to ear. :clap

    Clarence is afraid, took a few tries to get him next to, much less into into the car. Next I will try to overcome his fear of the noise. Baby steps.

    Keep at it, just go gently. My dog Monty (see a few posts above) didnt like it at first, we took him for short runs, only a mile or so, parked up, took him for a walk, so he associated the rig with good things. We have only had the Ural a month, now Monty actually gets in on his own, and seems to want to come out riding. Just waiting for warmer weather, the thing he really doesnt like is wearing his coat!

    Yep, having a fun destination like the dog park makes them super eager to ride.

    On that note how do Giant Schnauzers like the raucous Labs at the dog parks do they jump right in and mix it up ? Or are they repressed dignified Germans.DB

    We went past the Trapp Family Lodge today and one of their Scottish Highlander cattle was out. If you look closely you can see Barley with his nose pressing against the windshield. He wanted a piece of beef! :lol3

    Bryson is not interested in Labs. If its a Boxer or a Pit Bull, he wants to wrestle it. If its a Standard Poodle, he wants to hump it. Everything else he just leaves alone.

    Speaking of Giant Schnauzers and Poodles, I dropped into DMC Sidecars the other day and spied a copy of "The Sidecarist" magazine on the table in the waiting room. To my surprise, there was me and Kirby (Giant Schnoodle) on the back cover!

    I remembered that I had sent that pic to Joyce but then forgot all about it. Jay was nice enough to let me take the issue home with me for my collection of Kirby memorabilia.

    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.
