I will take my dog on the trails on my property, but not elsewhere. Reason being, I have ridden with a friend who takes her dog and although it's basically a good dog, it doesn't listen very well. Not a problem in the bush, but she rides on side roads to get to the bush and it's stressful for me to be aware that the dog is going into people's driveways and is all over the road. I really feel for the drivers that meet her because she might be on one side of the road and the dog is on the other. Terrible; I just hate it. Too bad because for that reason I don't ride with her very much.
