Believe it or not the dog door is 8in by 10in and they dont squeeze through it they run through it. Dammed if I can figure it out.


Couple more pics attached. As you can see they are really starting to get into this triking thing...............

We have lost that now with all this health and safety, We still have a few adventurous things for kids to do here in Wales, Caving, Mountaineering, forests to explore, things like the rocking stone, Boating on lakes, Waterfalls to climb around, Horse riding, exploring a coal mine, they even let them climb the town clock once a year. As to the trike, I think it is great, well thought out and good to look at..But what happens when one of the dogs dies, do you buy another dog as an accessory or do you chop off one of the dog sidecars?.....John
I dont mean to be rude John Hopkins, but to an animal lover, this is like asking someone what happens if one of their family dies and the question is in very bad taste indeed. I know you wouldnt mean to offend anyone on purpose, but losing beloved pet is not a subject that we like to think about and the suggestion, though not intended, is very hurtful and a little tactless to anyone who regard their animals as their 'kids'.

Mal n Al obviously think the world of their dogs which is why they have gone to the trouble and expense to be able to enjoy their hobby and take the dogs with them, and to ask a question like that is a bit crass.

I am not a big fan of putting animals on bikes, but that stems from seeing a dog 'tucked' into someones jacket, thought that careless, and very irresponsible.

However, I got to say, this trike has changed my mind, and actually made me smile, the dogs look so happy, and the security with the 3 collar harness makes it impossible for then make a run for it however they wriggle.

Alot of thought has gone into that trike. I'm impressed.

Ever thought that he didnt do it for you, it was his own choice, a choice the same as you have made as to what you ride.
I say that its different, not the style i would choose, but each to their own.
Just rememeber "your never alone with a clone".
The answer to this is simple,read the starter. Asks for opinions so gets it. Don't want to know,don't ask!!

Anyhow thanks again.
Mal 'N' Al,not slagging you off at all,nor criticsing you carrying dogs. Just a personal thing where i don't like a trike the size of a car nor only carrying two p[eople.Just my opinion.As it happens,I think it's a great adaption!!
