Unique Dog Rides (3 videos)

You’ve taken your dog for a walk; you’ve watched him run. Maybe he’d like to try something a little more unusual, like a bike, a surfboard, a turtle. Take your pick from one of these 3 cute videos.

Dog Enjoys Riding His Bike

Watch this dog in Japan riding his bike through town. OK, so it does have training wheels. But it still is a pretty good stunt, and the dog seems happy. What do you think?

Speed and excitement are the name of the game in the next video on page 2, which takes place at a doggie surfing competition.

Dog Surfing Contest

Bike too slow? Let’s try surfing.

This video was shot at the 2009 Dog Surfing Contest, held on behalf of the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter in San Diego. Dog surfing seems to be a big thing there.

Watch the contestants and see which dog you think shows the most grace in the waves. Such skill; one even rides backwards.

The mode of transport for the next dog, on page 3, is a very slow moving giant turtle.

Cute Dog Rides a Slow Turtle

Maybe we should call this Slow Dog. Can you imagine a dog so not in a hurry that he chooses a turtle for his means of transportation?

Is he on his way home to take a bath (ugh) or is he just having fun going round and round? Your call.

I'm concerned - most of the dogs do NOT look like they're having fun - tails tucked under, not wagging. I hope these activities are not just for the amusement of the owners and take the dog into account.

I loved ALL the animal video's but my favorite is the Surfing Dogs that the animal shelters put on.... adopt a dog from a shelter!

Are the animals forced to do these tricks. The dogs surfing didn't seem to be enjoying themselves. I really didn't enjoy watching these videos.

I agree with you Sue L, but maybe this will bring a different look for dogs instead of eating them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
