Thanks for the website, I'm looking into potentially buying a bike carrier for Riley to sit in whilst we go on some bike rides when the weather picks up. I have a question and just wondered (or being paranoid), but should our paws wear special glasses (goggles) whilst riding, i.e. so that bugs and other debris do not get in their eyes as they whizz along in the front of the basket? Same goes for if they're travelling in an open top car - should they wear some eye protection?

Looking forward to comments and advice.

Love the site.

One problem, they already have several sofa's, but I keep seeing other ones a like to.

They have more places to sit/lie as we do, lol.

Well, just looking is fun to.

<p>I like the snoozer,It high enough but not to high,wide enough but not to wide.I got the medium.The cover comes off,so its washable too. when I recieved mine,I ran in the house like a child that had seen the ice cream truck <img class="bbc_emoticon" src="" title=":hysterical:" />&nbsp;if you click on the dog car seats and carriers,and scroll down,to the snoozer lookout carseat 1,it has a white dog(looks like a jack russel) in it with a red vest,thats the seat I got but in beige,then had it monogrammed in pink.</p>

No you are not being paranoid.......it is a thought I had once before I started to ride on my bike with Karel. I still don`t make any bike rides while there is a lot of wind for instance, because of his eyes. But he never had anything in his eyes like bugs. Karel is in front of me on the bike, in a basket with a metal protection. My friend however has her furbaby behind her, now I like that better, so I am looking for something new to sit in voor him.

I also have a DoggyRide, their nice too.animaatjes-fietsen-315197.gif

Thanks for your reply, I never know if I'm being silly/paranoid (never owned a dog before and I don't know if I'm being over the top with my fur baby ;) ) Yes I have seen a little box carrier on wheels where you put your dog in, behind your bike and I like that idea to some extent - so that you get the wind first (protects your paw from getting it), but I think I'd be constantly paranoid Riley wasn't in the carrier at the back, something goes wrong and you wouldn't notice/know as you haven't got eyes in the back of your head and won't be able to continuously look round to check up on him. I think I like the idea of him in front in a basket, but the issue of wind/eyes is my concern. I would probably refrain from biking on a windy day, but just riding along will initiate wind wouldn't it? I look forward to riding along the seafront with Riley, so again, I think it would naturally be windier there than on normal main roads?!?

That's exactly what I'm looking at! lol. I just wonder if Riley will actually wear them!?! Will I actually be able to get them on his face and stay on?!? (He wiggles so much).

I can't believe the difference in price again! In the US Amazon website, they're $13.99 which is like £8.98, which is a very good price. Just looked up the same brand/size on the UK Amazon website and they are £52 before £4.48 postage, so that's like $88.03 - ouch, what a difference! :( I'll have to hunt for a better price or take a trip to the US to buy all my doggie products ;) lol.

I've just read on the US Amazon that you linked Vicki that they sell and ship outside of the US (they didn't do that with the Large Oval Bass Brush, I tried). So, I've just clicked all the parts to see what the costs would be and they're very reasonable!!! :) Doogles with shipping to the UK work out: £14.15 which is $22.05 which obviously is still nearly $10 more, but certainly not crazy $88.03 which is just ridiculous!

Would you say size: small would fit?

Thanks,

I bought the doggles for our Austrialian Shepard, I thought they were great but she refused to wear them pawed them off every time I put them on her! It was pretty funny to watch though!

I think they're a great idea Alex good luck and be sure and post a pic of Riley in them!!

Yes, I've been reading lots of reviews on these doggles and I think it's patience and persistance in getting them to get used to wearing them :( I guess it's not natural for them to wear these, so it's something they have to learn to get used to?!? A bit like Riley and his winter coat... the first few times I tried putting it on him was a nightmare! He would wrestle with us and try and wriggle to get it off him. Now he's a good boy, sits/stands there and allows us to put it on him and wears it so easily, it's certainly a breeze to put it on him now compared to before :)

Well my friend lives at the coast, she has two shih tzu`s. They are behind her on the bike in a special basket. Her daughter takes one and she has the other furbaby. Now I understand your concern about beiing not able to see Riley when he is behind you. I am in doubt also, but my friend says it works great, she can look behind her though to see if everything is allright. A doggy ride is great too, we take Karel in his but he sings all the way so everybody knows we are on our way :D Non of the furbabies I know who take rides on mommy`s bike have glasses. Some dogs really like to go on a bike ride and some don`t! I started out to late with my furbaby when he was a couple of years allready, but I know a Shih-Tzu 4 years of age, who doesn`t want to come out of the basket when she is taking a rideanimaatjes-fietsen-0751286.gif

Yea Vicki I was hoping maybe she would slip up and forget that she had it mongramed and we would see the new name.

I don't have goggles for Bailey.....really don't know if he would wear them but he has a visor that he wears when he goes 4 wheeling. It helps keep the sun out of his eyes and some of the bugs that we hit riding thru. He use to ride the mower with me but when the wind would catch the grass blowing out of the mower when I did a turn and he would get it in the face so his mowing days are over. But he has the 4 wheeler that he likes riding or the big tractor.......I love bike riding but would not feel safe in the area where we live.
