The first time I put Joey into my car, he trembled with fear. He never wants to be left behind, but he’s not as excited as some dogs I’ve known about riding around in a car.
Early on, I bought him a sheep skin harness that attached to a seat belt to keep him from flying when we had to make a sudden stop. No sooner had I put the car in gear than he got a paw through the neck of the harness and stepped right through it. He hopped on console and jumped into the back seat into his favorite spot.
When I ride my recumbent trike, I have a Burley cart for him that I tow behind my trike. He’s still a little uncertain about that one. I think the fact that he is enclosed — like a kennel — makes him less than thrilled. Dogs like Lucca (above) travel with their owners’ trikes without a cart. That’s much more like running with the pack.
