Dog Riding??

Obviously we have horseback riding, but I never heard of such a thing as dog riding. I'm sure a lot of people taking these photos were just messing around though, its probably not nearly the same thing as horseback riding is lol but it is kinda cute, especially the kid who actually has a miniature saddle and a "bridle-thing" (which is a halter made especially for a dog), on his dog lol.

Haha yea I was glad to see they were extra large dogs with little kids too. I tried to get on this Alaskan Malamute once when I was youger and he held me up for a long time than he just sat down and I slid off. Lol I'm a small person so it was probably like holding up a book to him haha

Not at ALL cute. Dogs are not made to carry weight, even big dogs. They can pull a ton of weight safely, but it is very damaging for them to carry any significant weight (a small pack is fine, a child is not). It is not safe or "cute" for these dogs to be carrying such large weights!

I completely agree with this. You could maybe put a little baby on them, but a 4,5,6,7,8 yr old child is not good for them at all.
I think that video is horrible, especially the pictures that have a saddle and bridle on the dog!
Like get a horse for god's sake!

I agree 100% with this, I've "ridden" by dog. But my feet were on the ground and I would walk with her under me, she loved it. One day she even reared. She tried to jump up funniest thing that.

Lol, I've been known to do this (the barn dog likes to try and buck me off, lol) But put weight on my dog? Never!

I agree! It isnt fair to the dog. How would those kids like it if the had to carry their dogs on their backs? Not very happy! But lol, one dog at the barn, Buddy, loves walking under me. We also "ride" the barn pig, but like, not put weight on ANY of them!

I agree. I treat my dogs like I treat my horses and there's no way I'd put that kid on a 6 month old foal.
