My wife and I have a 35lb Corgi/Heeler mix that we wanted to bring with on our longer (20+ miles) bike rides. The longer rides are just too much for the poor dog to keep up with (especially with her stubby corgi legs) so something like the Walky Dog Bicycle Leash just wouldn't work (although I am considering getting one to exercise the dog on shorter bike rides).

So, we decided that the best solution would be some sort of a trailer that we can pull behind out bikes. We looked at the much less expensive Solvit trailers (Solvit 62341 HoundAbout Bicycle Pet Trailer, Large) but wanted something solidly built that would last us preferably through this dog and the next one. The Burley Tail Wagon fits the bill perfectly. The construction quality is top-notch, and it looks much better than the other cheaper trailers as well.

Assembling it was very easy, despite the instruction manual being EXTREMELY vague. Our dog is already kennel trained, so as soon as I had the trailer put together she got right in. Hitching it up to the bike wasn't an issue either and within about 30 minutes of taking the trailer out of the shipping box, the dog an I were off on a short 4 mile ride to test out the new setup. Needless to say, the dog LOVED it!

Pulling a trailer behind the bike doesn't affect handling at all, but it does make the bike feel heavier so accelerating is a bit more work. One also has to be mindful of turns and such (just like when pulling a trailer with a car), and make wider turns.

Verified Purchase
When we were looking for a dog-specific bike trailer, I first went to Burley's product line because I had previously owned their Nomad cargo trailer. I was impressed by the design and quality of that trailer, so I knew this Tail Wagon would be no different. Burley's aren't cheap, but in my experience, you always get what you pay for with their products. Still, I wanted to shop around. A friend at my local bike shop suggested that I look at a few different product lines that also make dog trailers, and they were indeed much cheaper, but the reviews were all over the map - plus I just didn't care for the look of other brands' offerings. In the end, I bit the bullet on the Burley, and couldn't be happier.

The construction is characteristically top-notch Burley. Right out of the box, all you have to do is pop up the frame, attach the quick release wheels, slide on the hitch, and you're ready to go. Mine was already on my bike within 20 minutes of first opening the box. There is ample ventilation for your dog, and the bottom floor is rigid and removable for cleaning. Also nice is the roll-away clear vinyl covers for the front and rear windows. The side battens are stiff and reinforced with dowel rods to prevent your dog from leaning into the sides and causing the material to rub against the wheels. I like the wheel protector bars that keep the trailer from snagging violently on any obstacles. The tail gate features two different configurations for the safety of your dog. One option allows you to keep the tail gate attached and allows quicker entry and exit, but may allow smaller dogs to push their way out through the opening. Our dog did this on his very first time in the trailer.

Considering the price of fuel, I purchased one of the Burley Tail Wagon's to use for transporting my dogs to the local park 6 miles away for their daily walks.

It is a well built trailer and tracks well behind my Easy Racer Ti-Rush Recumbent. The trailer seems to be sturdy and material the cover is made out of appears to be durable. So far I have found this to be true.

When shopping for a trailer for my dogs I wanted to make sure that the floor and sides were secure. I have found these to be adequate and the floor is raised slightly above the axle so it makes the ride smoother for the animals.

I also wanted a way to separate them from one another in the trailer. The Burley does have a flexible divider wall. There probably could be some improvement made in this area.

One of my dogs is a Basenji so he is kind of an escape artist. I want to make sure he is leashed in so he does not go anywhere. I think this is something that might be addressed better by Burley.

I do not know if I have the newer or an older model of the Tail Wagon because mine did not come with the exterior Wheel Guards.

Security when you lock up your bike and trailer is always of a concern. It will cost you additional money but I feel for the price that is being charged for the Burley Trailer they could have included these few items I am mentioning below a better value.

1. While the Wheels are quick release they could have been locking skewers so when parked, attached or unattached to a bike the wheels would have some way to prevent them from being stolen.
