Bikejoring. Start of a Bikejoring race Bikejoring with three dogs.


Bikejoring is a dog mushing activity related to skijoring, canicross, and dog scootering. It is a recreation or sport where a harnessed dog or team of dogs attached to a towline have to pull and run ahead of a cyclist. Bikejoring is a non snow season (dryland) activity. Bikejoring and canicross are both dryland mushing activities that probably developed from skijoring and dogsled racing. Information[edit] Although any breed (or non-breed) of dog can be used, American Pit Bulls, Siberian Huskies, Samoyeds, Malamutes, Alaskan Huskies, Sled Hounds and Pointers are probably the most popular breeds for bikejoring. Although often practiced as a dog exercising recreation, in some parts of the World, dog sporting organizations and mushers (people who train dogs to pull - mushing) provide bikejor and dog-scooter racing classes at their competitive dryland sled-dog rallies and events.

This is the practical world of variable surface tracking, done in urban areas that are also used by the general public. As the handler, you must be convinced that this is possible; any doubts you feel will be communicated down the line to your dog.

As people, I believe we have to accept our position in tracking. We are to a large degree spectators to this "magic act" that is referred to as tracking. Those among you who have read some of my articles in the past know I like to draw certain parallels between a dog's natural and instinctive behaviors and what we are trying to achieve with the dog in training.
