When it comes to cycling with dogs, one of the most important questions is, how safe is my dog in a bicycle trailer? On this page, we will be introducing our detailed safety concept for Croozer Dog models!
CYCLING WITH A DOG – BICYCLE TRAILER, BASKET, CARGO BIKE OR RUNNING ALONGSIDE?
You love cycling – and of course, you also love your dog and would ideally like to have them with you at all times. Luckily, many good solutions are available for combining these two passions! But which is the best or safest option? Ultimately, it is often a question of taste and personal lifestyle. Nevertheless, we’d like to outline some pros and cons while offering our own two cents on the matter.
We designed our Croozer dog trailers in collaboration with dog owners and other experts from the fields of veterinary medicine, dog physiotherapy, dog training and dog breeding. One of the facts we learned in this process was particularly surprising for us: Dogs are not long-distance runners. Their bones and joints are not made for extended, high-speed runs beside their cycling or jogging owners. Excessive physical activity can even lead to health problems! This is why we recommend not expecting too much from your dog: Speeds and distances that seem manageable – or even enjoyable – for them are not necessarily healthy. On our blog, you can find more helpful tips and tricks for cycling with a dog!
If you plan to ride for longer distances or at speeds that are higher than your dog’s normal running pace, you will need to find a means of carrying your canine companion. A Croozer bicycle trailer offers you a practical solution that checks all the boxes:
• Environmentally friendly, simple transport option for your dog
• Practical for everyday life, camping holidays, bike tours etc.
• Also suitable as a cosy nook at home or on the road, and as a dog stroller (accessory kit)
• Fits a wide range of breeds, including large dogs up to 45 kg
• Can be easily folded to a compact size for transport or storage
