|Sorry I'm late in answering. Oh, cool on your mom's bike!! Yes,I had a basket. It got rain damaged, but my momwas able to train me to get used to it. We stopped riding when my mom got sick. She's hoping one day to go with me again. I was also taught to run next to my mom's scooter with I believe it's called a "walkie doggie" not sure on the spelling. My legs aren't good anymore so that doesn't work for me, now. I'd still do it, but mom knows my legs aren't as good as they were.
My mom would suggest to start off with a basket. If you like a basket, then you will probably be brave enough for running next to your mom, while she rides. When you get tired, she can put you in the basket.
Halo was not brave enough to ride in the basket. She was terrified even after mom worked with her for a long time. So mom would backpack Halo. Halo loved it. Mom had to be super careful, but Halo is light, and halo would just lie down and not move.so it was all good.
So that's another option for you if the basket or "Wally dog" don't work.
We started our practice in the backyard with mom walking next to us Halo and I both loved that. Then we just kept going from there.
Have fun!! I loved it. But remember, once your mom takes you on the bike. You will always want to ride with her. I would cry and cry, if I saw mom take the bike without me.
