If your senior dog is smaller, getting around can be difficult and sometimes walking almost impossible, but there are some really cool attachments you can add to your bike so that you can take your beloved pooch out for an airing.
You can get trailers that attach to your bicycle especially for larger dogs, but if you just have a little guy, these carriers are less cumbersome and it doesn't take long before FIDO figures out he can have just as much fun. You could take them to the park or simply out for a ride with you. You can get your exercise riding and he can enjoy your company.
As dogs age, it gets harder to take them out on hikes, walks and other activities which can lead to depression, so by investing in a few aids you can still let your senior dog have some fun! Check out some of these models online. Affordable options for enjoying a bike ride with your older dog.
This basket is easy to take off and put back on your bicycle, it also has a sun visor and pockets for your water, cell phone and maybe a toy to take to the park and his leash. Don't forget water for him too!
If you don't like the idea of a front basket you can get this rear facing one that fits onto a bracket. Your pooch is belted in and still enjoys the ride. There is a little bit more room in the rear facing seat.
This model is very versatile. You can use it as a shoulder carrier or on your bike or in the car. It has mesh cover as well as a rain cover to keep the elements off of your pooch. It is very snuggly for any smaller dog, but especially a senior dog who loves to get out and about with you. It has a strap for using as a shoulder bag too. Don't leave him at home, take him out with you!
If you find your dog slowing down due to aging, try to adapt. You know your dog better than anyone, and you can tell when things are hurting or they simply can't keep up. Our dog used to chase us if we ran for fun, but then one day she simply lay down on the sidewalk and this was telling us loud and clear that activity was no longer fun for her, so we came up with other things she liked to do.
In her later years she simply loved to putter and sniff everything or go for car rides. She didn't even want to get out of the car, she just loved the wind on her face, so we did it quite often. She was happy again! It all depends on the size and weight of your dog, but if you have a smaller pooch, and love to ride a bike, instead of walking him, take him out for an outing with you in a bike carrier for dogs, and have some fun with your older dog.
