Walking the dog with the unicycle is fun, and easier than with a bicycle. In my
formative unicycling years of high school we had a Great Dane in a third floor
apartment, and my dad would send me out to exercise him. I tried this with a
bicycle, but it was hard to stop, and to control the bike when he’d go in front.
When I learned the unicycle, it was much easier because my hands were free, and
I could lean back and let him pull me along. I now have two husky mixes, and its
fun to ride with them, although one speeds ahead and one lags behind.
