Ruckus (yes, that’s his name) got scared over a cat with a cone of shame on our bike ride (and soooo close to home). He instantly cut in front of the bike causing me to screech to a halt and still manage to run into him a bit. In the process, I flipped on my bike and landed on my side. I came out with scrapes and bruises, while he came out with a loss in his pride. But look at that smug face!
What a fitting name lol
He is a handsome boy….I’m an ACD owner myself and I feel your pain! LOL
I’ve got a blue heeler and a red heeler. Double chaos here!
He didn’t mean to.

Makes me reconsider teaching my ACD to run alongside my bike!
He is sorry! But I am sure you learned why it is better to walk/run your dog then ride alongside him 🙂
what jackie said.
What a pretty boy! My dogs would never behave well enough to run next to a bike, but may do! They do have cool side bike things that allow a dog to safely run next to your bike and not run in front of you when a scary cat comes around!
My dog attacks bikes (tires), so there’s no way he’s going to be running alongside one ever.
Switch from a harness to a prong collar and that won’t be happenning lol
Pronged collars are cruel. I’m sure she’s a much better mom than that.
I would disagree: pronged collars are cruel if used wrong (left on all the time, if you yank the leash with it on, etc.) but they can be an excellent way to keep a strong pulling dog in check.
I have an acd…he likes to nudge cats with his nose until they get so angry they scratch him then he runs to me for comfort. …he just can’t seem to understand that he started it!!!
What a handsome mug shot! He says “I saved Mom from that weird cat with the alien collar…not sorry!” 🙂
There is a thing called the Cycleleash. Anyone who rides with their heeler should look into it. It keeps them at your side and doesn’t allow them to cut in front. Just an FYI!
