dog and bicycle

My dog (feisty terrier) just isn't getting enough exercise although he gets two walks a day. He becomes a maniacal bitey jumping freak! So tomorrow I am going to a bike shop to get a Pyramid Bicycle Dog Leash attachment for the bike. I have looked online and this is the least pricey but seems to have pretty good reviews.....I like that it is behind the bike and the dog cannot get entangled in the bike wheels----the only possible problem is that the dog can run off to the side and throw your bike off balance---but I will give it a try as it is under 20 bucks....

Hands free operation

Easy Low attachment

Prevents dog from becoming entangled in the wheel or frame

Maintain stability and Control while riding with your Dog

This will attach to the rear axle and the other end has a loop you can attach your dogs leash to. This item is made of all steel with a small safety leash that will loop around the backend of your frame.

rat terrier / jack russell terrier
When I was a kid I used to go a million miles an hour with Scamper on a leash and me on the bike. Amazingly, neither of us got killed -- in fact, we never even had an incident.

You were talking about rat terriers versus jack russell terriers. I hate to promote Wikipedia since Google has made that its mission, but here's something from it on that subject:

Although often mistaken for a Jack Russell Terrier, the Rat Terrier has a different profile and a very different temperament. Rat Terriers are finer of bone and have a more refined head. They always have a short single coat—never wire coated. Rat Terriers tend to be less aggressive than Jack Russells; while they have a definite terrier personality they also have an "off switch" and love lounging on the sofa in a lap as much as tearing about the yard. Rat Terriers are normally cheerful dogs but they tend to be more sensitive than Jack Russells to changes in their environment, owner's moods, or to unexpected noises, people, and activities. The "social sensitivity" of Rat Terriers makes them very trainable and easier to live with for the average pet owner but it also means that extensive socialization from an early age is critical. Proper socialization of a rat terrier puppy includes exposing the animal to a wide variety of people and places, particularly during the first 3 months of life. Like most active and intelligent breeds, Rat Terriers tend to be happier when they receive a great deal of mental stimulation and exercise.
