Urban Mushing – The Dog Powered Scooter

When I received an email from Mark Schuette, the inventor of the Dog Power Scooter, asking me to check out his invention and let him know what I thought, I expected to see the vehicle used by Norman – the Wonder Dog. NOT.

Introducing Urban Mushing – A Sport for You and Your High Drive Dog! Mark and his invention were even spotlighted on CNN!

Mark Schuette wanted to exercise and have fun with his dog. But bicycles with dog leash attachments concerned him. The dog could forge out in front of the bike. And what if the dog had a high prey drive and spotted something irresistible? There had to be a better and safer way to bike with your dog. So he invented the Dog Power Scooter, a safe way for you and your dog to have fun.

The Dog Power Scooter can be dog or human powered. The human has total control. There is a Scooter model for one, two, three or more dogs. There is also a Trike that holds up to two dogs. The Trike system is totally stable with powerful steering and braking. The Trike can accommodate certain disabilities.
