Biking with Tigger

Well I tried biking with Tigger yesterday as another form of energy burning...we did okay, he did totally shut down when we came to a house with water sprinklers on...was not cool. I was thinking of getting a walkydog( a gizmo thats basically a stick with a small leash to attach to the bike), because I am not corrdinated enough to hold a leash and ride a bike. I wish we had a pool or lake to go to so he could swim and maybe make friends with water, but I think he was scarred for life because the kids abused him when he was a puppy with water...I have never seen a dog so afraid of water...if its on the sidewalk he will throw on his brakes...I force him to walk through it, trying to break that fear...aquaphobia in dogs...i think not! I think he was torchured! There was too many kids at the house I got him from, and that many+puppies=abuse (usually)...anyways...I will try this tonight.

One thing I do is tie leash under the seat of the bike, it keeps the equalibrium of the bike and also leaves your hands free to steer.
As far as the water goes what about starting with one of those tiny baby pools with soft sides. I have seen them at the dollar store. Good Luck, If conner can do it, tigger can too.
