 looks like its from Cycle Dog. They do custom branding in addition to the sweet designs on their website. Both my Vizslas have their collars, and bowls, and leash, and toys. Really cool company.

 Anyone want to go in on some custom ones? It’s a 15 item order minimum for custom. But we can make a rad custom batch. I want a cool collar and leash for my lab!

 We are literally waiting for the shipment to arrive at our warehouse any day now - Trail-borks and Pinkbike collars, bowls, and leads/leashes, all made out of recyclable tubes from CycleDog. Mine is a Kenda tube...

Hopefully by later next week we will be live in the shop!

 Feel sorry for the Dachshund hiking up Whistler. We saw this Australian sheep dog absolutely ripping through our trail better than the riders.

 As an owner and racer of Dachshunds all pink bikers can see which breed has the most representation here. They may not be the ultimate dog for mountain biking but they are the best dog for sharing a beer with after. Thanks for this article!

 I've always hated small dogs. There was an insane Chihuahua who would go bezerk at the gate every time I walked our old Collie past it growing up, and the recent-ish fashion in inbred 'handbag' dogs did nothing to change that opinion. But I had a colleague a few years ago who brought his two Dachshunds to work regularly. They're one of the sweetest, most endearing dogs I've ever met. Just their walk makes me smile. I'm not converted on small dogs and my partner wants a 'full-size' dog, but if we ever got a little one she'd have to argue hard for it not to be a Dachshund.
  • 25 1
 @gkeele: Pick a dog size and be a dick about it.
But nah for real, Dachshunds are the best. Hard to train though, they're stubborn little shits
  • 5 2
 @gkeele: the problem with small dogs it the owners. when the dog is not big enough to knock you over the need for training to protect ones self is not there, so they let them be 'cute'. i hate cats and any dog smaller than a cat is a cat in my book, so yea i dont like the breeds, the brain dead owners are the problem in most cases.

 @gkeele: I have had two Dachshunds. Great dogs, but prone to paralysis in the hind legs over time because of serious back spine problems. One of my dachshunds got paralyzed. Sad.

 Dogs should have harnesses. It doesn't pull on their neck/throat, when they're pulling or barking - won't hurt them at all and they'll love you for it. Nothing worse when a dog is trying to bark or tug and it's being strangled by it's collar. Collars for show - harness on the go. Dogs rule.
  • 13 7
 If the dog does not like being strangled, maybe it should learn not to pull so hard on the leash. Most dogs figure this out pretty quickly.

 @IntoTheEverflow: Actually no.. I had a dog years ago that suffered from a partially collapsed trachea . Ask any vet and they will tell you that a harness is safer.
  • 10 3
 Better yet, if possible, develop a relationship/rapport with your dog that allows them to be off leash as much as possible. Being bound and/or gagged doesn't bring out the best in anyone. : )

 @juansolo57: there are not enough props in the world for your comment.
  • 5 0
 @juansolo57: Totally agree. But.. local dog laws require all dogs to be on a leash when in public.. Our dogs are only on a leash when we take them for walks.
  • 6 2
 @IntoTheEverflow: Not true. I have a niece that was taking my dog for a walk and he wanted to pee on a tree (maltese poodle). She yanked so hard on his leash that she messed up his neck and discs. We had to put him down. So...go for a harness for certain. The dog died before it's time. I still have issues talking to that niece.
  • 4 2
 Or you could just train your dog to be obedient... So rare these days.

 Veterinarian here. +1 million to the harness recommendation. Collapsing trachea and neck instability are good reasons, but the biggest reason I'd give is that dogs tend to slip collars and get hit by cars. It's incredibly common. Not a problem with harnesses.
  • 2 0
 @MMOF: Many people are sick in the head, but a harness on their dog won't fix that.



I do think that for really tiny dogs a harness is better.

 Get a border collie, then no leash is necessary making the collar/harness debate moot. Plus, a BC can drive you home from the bar should you over indulge (RIP Jake).

 @catsndogs:
plus a harness can be clicked into a car seat, keeping your partner safe driving to/from the trail.
