I am wondering what is the right age to start bicycling with Vlcaks. I would like to train with our Vlcak, but obviously not too soon if it might harm him.

What are people's thoughts about this? It seems like walking is not enough for him anymore and the park is not always an option.
i bike with mine...but didnt start till he was 18 months and not a day before.(before then i took him swimming)
but i also agree mental stimulation is far more tiring.

eta.. i live in London,we are not 'supposed' to bike on pavements either...but we do, and as long as we are considerate we dont get told not to.
