Nantucket Bike Baskets makes an that attaches to your rear rack, while is a dog-specific bike seat that give your pooch a front-row seat on the handlebars.

Harness your dog into the trailer, crate or basket, allowing your dog some room to move without putting him or her in danger of falling, or escaping Toto-style.

The Buddyrider™ Bicycle Pet Seat is a fun way to safely take your dog along with you on a bike ride. Unlike other dog bicycle seats on the market such as the more traditional front mounted bike basket for dogs, and any rear mounted dog seat, Buddyrider™ is mounted over the center of the bike so the extra weight has virtually no effect on handling. For larger breeds the dog trailer is ideal, but for smaller dogs weighing up to 11.5kg (25 pounds) there is no better alternative than the Buddyrider™. dog baskets for a bike | Large BICYCLE BASKET Traveler dog carrier pet bike carriers

From extended bike frames with large boxes, to little baskets to no accessory at all, here are 11 options for taking dogs of different sizes and levels of training with you. Large dogs are fantastic companions on hikes and bike rides — until they get tired, anyway. Then, they need to be hauled. There’s baskets and totes for transporting tiny furry friends by bicycle, but how can we transport bigger, more robust canines around town or on trails?Traveling by bike with your dog will have safety risks for your dog regardless of how you do it. But the right type of a dog bike carrier can mean the difference between a fun outing with your pooch, and one that turns disastrous.

For small dogs, a dog bike basket is probably the way to go.

If you have more than one dog, or a dog larger than 25 lbs, you should probably look at a .

If you decide on a dog basket for bike travel, then know that not just any basket will do. You need a basket that will provide some protection for your dog, as well as a way to keep your dog restrained in the basket. The last thing you want is for your dog to be able to jump out!

One of the most important pieces of advise I found while reading several hundred customer reviews on various dog bike carriers is this:

DO NOT USE A COLLAR to attach your dog to a bike carrier – USE A HARNESS! This keeps your dog more securely restrained and much less chance of injury if they come out of the basket some how. With a collar, you risk your dog choking or breaking their neck.Pet Gear Bike Basket is a charming pet carrier with a comfortable 3-in-1 design and a lightweight design that you can travel with easily. Unlike some bulky models, for instance, that weight down users, its streamlined design works well with most bicycles. The 600 Denier nylon used to make it is both rip and water-resistant. Its large zippered pockets and pouches accommodate numerous accessories, while its universal bicycle attachment eases its installation on most bikes. Finally, its sides and floors are durable and its convenient 14 x 10 x 9-inch design recommended for carrying several breeds of toy dogs.Pet bicycle trailers, unlike bike baskets, are able to accommodate larger dogs. Our largest pet bicycle trailer can safely carry dogs that weigh up to 110 pounds. (Now that sounds like a workout!) After the ride you can fold up any of our pet bicycle trailers for easy storing.
