Solvit Pet Products, based out of Arlington, Texas have been manufacturing products including bike trailers, ramps, lifting aids, car seats and cat play structures for 10 years.
One of their most popular items, the Houndabout Bike Trailer, has a brand new design. The frame is made of rust-proof aluminum, and the cabin has been redesigned so your dog will have better visibility and more “headroom”.
Using a bicycle trailer to exercise with your pet eliminates any guilt you might have about enjoying the outdoors without your buddy! The trailer comes folded up and assembly is not labor intensive. The tow bar attaches to your rear axle and you’re ready to go. The medium trailer, with 16″ air-filled tires, is for pets up to 50 lbs and the large trailer, with 20″ air-filled tires, is for pets up to 110 lbs.
Both Houndabout II trailers can be converted to a stroller in about a minute. The aluminum stroller kit, consisting of a padded handlebar, swiveling front wheel, parking brake and cup holder, must be purchased separately from the bike trailer.

When you go out biking, you do not need to leave your dog at home. Bike leashes of the past left you worrying about whether your dog will get in the way of your tires and cause an accident. Pet Ego makes two dog bike leashes designed for a safe and fun outing with your pet.
The WalkyDog Bicycle Leash attaches to the seat post of your bike. It extends away from the bike, a maximum of 12 inches, and then your dog is able to run next to the bike, not into it.
The WalkyDog has an optional attachment for the rear axle of your bike. Dogs who are smaller might prefer the Low Rider.
The Cycleash is a brand new product from Pet Ego. The Cycleash uses shockless TPR technology, basically a bungee cord, to ensure a comfortable ride for you and an enjoyable run for your dog. It is different from other bike leashes in that it has an ergonomic curved bar. You can actually ride with a dog on each side of your bike with the Cycleash, you would just need to purchase an extra bar.
It is recommended that you only use a bicycle leash for dogs that weigh over 20 pounds. Bike leashes are designed to accommodate the dog that pulls hard on a leash so that your ride continues on smoothly. You only need to clip the bike leash to your dog’s collar, but some dogs prefer being connected by way of a harness.
