I've got it rigged for now, until I can find some more liner to put in the attachment piece. I've also only been doing no more than 10 mins on it with Curly. I only do a fast pace walk/slow trot with her on it for these few minutes, but her pads keep getting really raw. I allow them a few days to heal, then we try again...and they are raw again. This happens on the sidewalk, dirt paths, grass...but they do not get raw when she and I hike(dirt/rocks/pavement/grass) on weekends for a couple hours. She also doesn't get raw pads when we walk around the community on the sidewalk for an hour or so. I'm so confused as to why it's happening. Maybe she is slightly pulling away/towards the bike, and I can't tell, and this is causing it? How can I prevent her from hurting herself? Would wrapping her paws with something be a good idea? If so, how and what do I wrap them with? HELP?!?!
What pace are you going at? I could see where going too slow would cause her to break with every step and cause some friction. If you can't feel a strong tug I wouldn't think it's the bike.
We go at a fast pace walk/slow jog pace on the bike because she gets winded easily too. I figured better to start slow to build up some endurance. I tried it again and watched her closely this time (which caused me to almost crash a couple times ), and she is slightly pulling outward from the bike. She isn't scared of the bike, so not sure why she is slightly pulling at it. I honestly can't feel the pull on the bike, but I can see she isn't running straight up like she should. I'm looking at ordering some of those things from cabelas to help protect her paws for now until she starts running level.
