NEW USA MADE "FAT TIRE" SCOOTER

Fat Tires are the ultimate in traction- thus the conditions and terrains you can go over are greatly expanded!  As well as extending this sport thru the Winter months- and that also is timed well to take advantage of when the dogs have the most energy- when its cool outside!  These 20" dia. wheels/fat tires also are the ultimate in scooter stability on any type of terrain (snow, gravel, loose dirt, mud, crud, etc) , including dry pavement!   This extra traction also adds stability when you have multiple strong fast dogs on board!  The only penalty is slightly more rolling resistance (in the softer material they actually roll easier) and a bit of a humming noise on pavement, which comes in handy as a warning when you approach pedestrians from the rear.  The wheelbase (axle to axle) is also 2" longer than the standard usa scooter and the footplate 2" wider (8").  The ground clearance is also increased to a little- but still comfortable for kicking.

Weight capacity is 325 lbs.

In the photo you can see how the dogs support the scooter vertically and the scooter supports the dog/dogs (side to side and vertically).


Dog on each side config. shown- this is best beginner 2 dog setup since its so stable and easy to ride.

IN-LINE, MY FAVORITE

Dogs inline on right config.

Best when you need to be narrow- for instance busy sidewalks and or single track trails.  Its a bit more advanced riding but still easy since that 2 point clipin allows the dogs to support the scooter.


This option is included with all 2 dog or 2nd dog add on systems.

USA Made "serious" scooter

 

The steel frames are made and powder coated locally, the wheels are from Mississippi and all the other parts (including the cable disc brakes) are typical bicycle parts sourced from bicycle parts wholesalers here in the usa.  The rider weight capacity is 325 lbs. the weight is approx. 45 lbs with a single dog pulling system attached. the wheelbase is longer than most scooters- this adds stability. And the ground clearance is comfortable for kicking yet adequate for moderate off road use.. And the footplate is level to the ground.  It has front and rear splash guards as well as wheelcovers.  Footplate width is 6 1/2". Wheels are 20" BMX style with a moderately aggressive tire tread for on and off road. The handlebar is vertically adjustible and well as angle adjustible. 

Can handle up to 3 big dogs- and 4 small dogs.

Weight capacity is 325 lbs.

Dog on each side config.

Its included with all 2 dog systems and the best beginner setup for 2 dogs since its so stable and easy to ride- can do packed snow, shallow powder snow and other loose material.

Dogs inline on right side config.

 This is more advanced riding but still pretty easy since that 2 point clipin allows the dogs to support the scooter vertically. Its my favorite and best in constricted areas like busy sidewalks and single track trails.

 Its included in all 2 dog (or 2nd dog add on) systems purchased.

 The right side is best since the dogs are way from oncomming traffic on a sidewalk and away from cars on a bike lane. This also allows you to keep the dogs on the grass/dirt on the right side of a sidewalk while the wheels can stay on the pavement for easy rolling.

NEW LOWEST COST OPTION

SCHWINN NAMED CHINESE SCOOTER

   A decent quality conventional kickscooter appropriate for one big dog or 2 small dogs. with a 26" front wheel and a 20" dia. rear wheel.  The tires are 1 1/2" wide street oriented tread. But for better safety and performance for all surface conditions i recommend a set of wider more aggressive tires (Kenda K-Rad 2" wide) at $42 for the upgrade.  The wheelbase is 48" long (axle to axle and thats relatively long for a conventional scooter) and the longer the wheelbase generally the more stable and better tracking the scooter is.   The larger front wheel also adds a bit more steering stability (not as twitchy) and also rolls over bumps a bit smoother.  Its a fairly light scooter with a rider MAX weight rating of 250 lbs.  The stock handlebars are junk (way to swept back) so i add (no extra charge) a more appropriate handlebar as well as a new set of grips.  The brakes are standard low end bicycle brakes (called V-brakes) which have adequate braking for a single high drive dog attached.  Fenders are included.

The only weakness i see is the exposed rear brake cable on the left side of the lower frame- this could be an issue IF you ride a lot on narrow single track trails.  I do make the new footplate wider than the stock one inorder to overhang on that left side and protect that exposed cable from the side (NOT from the bottom). And a wider footplate is always nice to have.

Willy (RECREATIONAL SCOOTER)

This is a decent quality Taiwanese kick scooter and fine for a single dog and or for 2 smaller dogs. The dog on each side and the inline config. is included with all 2 dog or 2nd dog add on system.

Brakes are the standard V-brake you see on most low end bicycles- they have the power to lockup the wheels but not as accurate in modulate the braking power as the disc brakes.

Bolt-on dog pulling systems for the recumbent "tadpole" trikes

 For those that can't ride a scooter  and or want to use the trike for their own riding (without dogs) often, the Dogpowered Trike is the solution. (these are the recumbent "TADPOLE" trikes with 2 wheels in the front)


I DO NOT SELL THE TRIKES MYSELF- you have to get those from others. I recommend a local trike dealer for the best service.


I can't fit all of the trikes, just 6-7 of them such as some of these brands- CAT, TRIDENT, SUN, TERRATRIKE, TI-TRIKES and KMX 


I also recommend an upgrade to a wider tire and or a "fat tire" model if you want to do ANY off road.

Custom fit scooters i don't sell

I WILL need photos and some measurements

 I can usually fit most any  good quality scooter (with good brakes and at least 16" dia wheels).  Longer wheelbase and 2 frame tubes under the footplate are best.  IF i don't think its a safe scooter I can't make a system for it.


There is a $25 Custom Fit Fee on top of the $260.  And shipping is extra.

The 2" wide Nylon Harness is adjustible on every strap and sent larger than you need- thus you adjust it to fit at home, then cut the excess webbing off at every buckle/slider. Leave long tails at each buckle/slider if your dog is young, then you can let it out as they grow.  BUT its not fast adjusting it for a dog of a different size since the webbing is tight as it goes thru each buckle/slider.  Extra harnesses are $35 ea..
