Ever feel that walking the dog is a chore? How can a drained, overworked human possibly keep up with the boundless energy of a young canine companion? Well, thanks to these Dog-Powered Vehicles, you can take your pooch out for a run while you relax. Reclined on a Terra Trike or standing stationary on a dog-powered scooter, you steer the way and exercise is optional.
Invented by Mark Schuette, these dog-powered vehicles seem like a great way to get around town, or simply as a novel way of getting both your canine friend and yourself (if you want to help out) some exercise.
They are specially designed to give the rider complete control by harnessing a dog and its dog power like a kind of rear-wheel drive system. I’m not entirely convinced that if a large, powerful Husky or German Shepherd were to dart after a cat you’d remain in control, but it sure looks like fun.
