    I just saw this post and this is something I have also wondered about doing. I'd really like to do it. I googled youtube videos for how to teach your dog to pull a cart. You might do that too. One of the things it mentioned is that some dogs are not willing to walk in front of you, which is essentially what they are doing when they pull a cart. For my needs and willingness to invest, I'd go for one of the $300+ carts. I know you were hoping someone with experience would reply. Maybe my reply will "bump" the post back into view and someone will reply.

    If you do it, please post how it goes and which cart you used.

    I occasionally use a mtb instead of a scooter. Be warned before you do it, it’s best to first precondition your dog for a few weeks with regular long hand walks and then slowly start getting your dog use to the activity. Be interesting to see her progression as you go.

    I bikejore as well, but she doesnt do a lot of pulling because I also want some exercise and I think longer lighter workouts are better than short rigorous workouts, just a personal preference. Both have their use, but bikejoring is great for building stamina rather than muscle.

    There’s a myriad of different ways to exercise a dog with a bike, depending on rider, bike, environment etc.
    I don’t call it bikejore, more often than not I’ll say hanging on to the bike for dear life as a few of mine like to test my bike riding skills and set speed records.
