Canine Power Assistance for Weak Legs

Canine Pedalling Assistance
This dropped into our inbox like a bone into a newly dug hole. Thanks to Mark for the link.

A unique alternative to e-bikes. The Dog Powered Trike. As it says on the website:

-it gives the rider precision steering control, with great braking
-total stability,
-the ability to help by pedalling,
-can handle up to 4 dogs,
-and the thrill of dog mushing/pulling!


Since e-bikes never sell in Denmark and Scandinavia unless you're disabled or elderly, [the rest of us have normal leg muscles :-)] this is at least a cool twist on walking the dog.

Fascinating and not a little weird.
