It took a while to teach my dog Gala to run with me on my Coker. Her chasing squirrels wasn't so bad when we got her and she was only 40 pounds, but now she's 55 pounds, and can really pull.

What's nice is that all NYC parks allows dogs off leash from 9 pm to 9 am, and from 7 am to 9 am it's a BIG gathering of dog people. I unleash her and she runs with me down car-less paths like we're part of the same pack.

On leash, it's a standard 4 mile ride, which is easier in the winter, cuz summers in NYC are really HOT, even early in the morning, especially since global warming has been taking over.

I'm glad to see so many of us running dogs while unicycling!!

lol. Unisykolist, I have never liked you.

Just learn to glide walking the dog like me. I can even do a pretty decent, uh, "gliding stillstand" when he stops-and he likes to sniff around for a bit.

Because he's marking his territory, not just relieving himself.

I have a jack russell too, they are spazzy as hell,
It would be suicide to even take him on a walk to the beach. But yet I canhandle it on foot.

I have a black lab and a jack russell. I have tried to walk the on uni, but they don't like walking next to each other, so I always fall off...
You know it.

Just tried walking the dog by uni today for the first time. We have only had him for three weeks but he walks well on a leash. He does better if I walk fast so I thought the 24 would be a good speed for him. It went way better than I expected. I had 2 UPDs but that was due to paying more attention to him than the road. Not to bad for a 45 minute ride. We might have to make this a regular thing

Almost learnt unicycle by waking my jack russel on 24 and 26er.
I do it on my 19er now which is more accurate to the frequent territory markings.

keeping balance while it pulls hard on one side was a great learning tip.

My dog Chester, a 75 lb poodle, had been pulling me along on unicycles for 3 years now. It is a little nervous on the 36er for both of us, but really easy on anything else. He's good at only pulling when he's supposed to, and stopping when I stop.

It isn't any harder than riding w/o a dog, once you get the human/dog communication bit sorted out. You can lean against the leash somewhat, which is more stabilizing than disrupting.

If you do have your dog pull try to get a very good fitting collar that keeps the load off his/her throat or, better yet, a pulling harness.

I think it really comes down to how well your dog is trained. I used to take the family dog out on my uni, as well as rollerblades if they don't pull to much it's very doable
