My husband and I just recently bought bikes. Has anyone used “Walky Dog Bike Attachment” with a greyhound?(http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pc atid=12526&N=2001+113234) Or a similar device that you attach to the bike’s back wheel and it allows you to ride your bike and take your dog on a walk?

I haven't used one before, but I have tried riding my bike with my grey and just adjusted the leash around my wrist as I went along...Let's just say that he could stop on a dime and I couldn't. The bike and the dog stopped moving, but I couldn't, ran into the handlebars, and had a noticible limp for a few hours that day.
I would say that it all depends on the dog, and it helps if you don't have a grey that likes to stop and sniff every tree and blade of grass, like me. You may have to do some training, but I have a friend who would ride their bike with their grey all the time. I learned my lesson the first time, and never tried it again.
