The only dangerous part (for me) is other dogs lunge at us in response to what i assume are challenges to fight to the death in dog language from the bike riding terrier fury in the back seat. i make sure and go far around other dogs and make sure the owner has a good grip on the leash. No one is more surprised than me that i haven't ended up pedaling for my life while being chased by pit bulls.
i wasn't sure if my dog was enjoying these rides or not. But now when i try to get my bike out of the garage she runs around it doing the awkward pick-me-up jump and glaring at me with her beady little eyes. I'm not allowed to take the bike out without her.
UPDATE- After several rides she got braver and braver. I had to add a second leash to hold her head more forward. She found if she wiggled her harness sideways enough she could make it to the back of the seat and hang off the back dangling off the edge. Scared me to death, but she didn't fall and continued to bark. She regrets nothing. I feel like she needs a hannibal lector mask and straight jacket to ride well. It works great for my other dog that holds still, but he doesn't much care to go for bike rides.
p.s. Only works if you have a splash guard/bike rack already installed onto the back of your bike. This is what the basket sits on for it's support.
p.s.s. The interior strap works best if your dog is wearing a harness, not a collar. The latch is in the back of the basket and it only goes up so far and it's easier to attach onto a ring on their back than one further up on their neck. He was more comfortable and secure latched in with the harness.
Overall, it is pretty good. The instructions on installing it are not clear but I found this YouTube video that explains it better: [...]
I do not know if it is because my bike has a large frame or something else but the location of the buckles made their install method not work well. I had to come up with my own that went to the bottom of the rack instead. My way works very well and hold it on quite securely.
One of my biggest gripes is that there isn't much on how to attach your dog. I followed what I think was their method and she jumped out once. Side note: You MUST use a harness and not a collar!!! Anyway, I put her back in with the strap woven through her harness and it held her more. Or, she found out that being held by the harness hurts and bit and didn't jump again. She hung there so it isn't like she hit the ground. Still, not good.
I am going to say it again, use a harness and not a collar. It would have broken her neck if she jumped with a collar holding her.
So, to sum it up with some new points.
- Unique (didn't find any other rear carriers)
- Very padded. (We put it on the floor when not on the bike and she uses it as a bed)
- Reflector is very visible
- Not great instructions for installation
- Even worse instructions for dog attachment
- Dog was able to jump when used (seemingly) properly
+ She was still safe and not on the ground!
- Very large to store (not so bad since she uses it as a bed too)
