What I meant was, if you want to ride an animal, ride a horse. At least they can hold you.

I can remember riding a St. Bernard around when I was a little kid. Though I couldn't sit up straight so I was more laying on his back than actually riding him.

For heaven's sake, most of those pictures were probably 'caught' by parents, when the kid tried it one time...

Were dogs made for riding, no, but dogs like Saints were bred to carry alot; they would carry two barrel shaped packs into the mountains for their people. Many dogs can easily swim with an adult person hanging onto say they aren't strong enough for the occasional experimental kid is plain goofy.

True the saddle and bridle is a bit much, but most little kids who have a big dog are going to crawl all over him before they are old enough to realize he's not a real horse; and the beauty of it, is that dogs accept it, because they love their kids. If a dog doesn't care for it, he's not going to stand there for it...

Some of you people take everything SOOOO seriously. Gawd.

Anywho, when I was two or three we had a St. Bernard that I would hop on a time or two. Best dog I ever had. It was cute.

Some of these kids were too big for the dogs, though.

I completely agree with people who don't agree with this as 'cute'
No matter the size of a dog, it is bad for them, they arent made for this and you can break their backs !

Not safe, at all

Yeah, most of those kids were WAY too big for those dogs. Cute idea, but not so cute what they could be doing to the poor dogs.

They even had a saddle!

I've watched it twice now and reckon quite a few of those pics were photoshopped, a couple of the kids look like they've been airbrushed onto the dogs. Most of those pictures will have been taken in a few seconds then the kid got off. The saddle and bridle pics....I'm not very convinced by them and think maybe one or two of them could well have been photoshopped by a very clever person.

Sorry, as an owner of 2 great danes, I think its horrible. Makes me cringe to think anyone would think it was cute! I've had people ask me tons of times to let their kids ride my dogs. Hell no. They arent built for that! Theyre DOGS!!!! Apparently people don't understand that JUST because a dog is large doesnt mean they can handle that!
