Dually BMX Scooter
You might have had your dog pull your bike, but it is difficult and dangerous to keep riding a bike straight when a dog suddenly changes his direction (especially side ways). Although with the dog scooter, this sudden direction change creates difficulty to maintain the standing position of the scooter, the scooter's platform is 3 1/2inches off the ground, so it is easy to step your foot out once out of balance. Also the Scooter's foot break is both hand free and reliable for stability and speed control. There are a couple of Dog Scooter fans that e-mailed us about their comments regarding their dog scooters. Please send any questions you may have. Also please visit our web-site at http://kaz-usa.com for more information about our Scooters and other products like rhino Tricycles , Monster Super Wagons which are designed for all ages and all terrain. We have 5 kinds of Dog Sled Scooters: All Terrain Scooter, Dully Scooter and Slick Scooter.Order from our Amazon Store Order eBay Now
|Slick BMX Scooter|
|Slick BMX Scooter Price-Item-Order-Information|
This is the hot rod scooter! The Slick Scooter comes with a 16 inch front BMX bike tire and super fat, 14.5 inch diameter, 6 inch wide, Chevron rear tire. The combination of these tires creates great maneuverability and performance. The Slick turns quicker than other ATV Scooters because of the BMX bike tire and you have more stopping and slowing control because of the hand brake. These big tires can cross over narrow cracks on the side walk, roll on the short cut grass or hard surfaced dirt. Other small plastic wheel scooters may have trouble with these conditions. The great big rear tire on this scooter makes for exceptional stability at slower speeds. It is nice not to have to pedal to control your balance when your dog slows down when going up hill. And it is easy to balance the scooter even when standing still. Through dirt, grass, brush, cement and asphalt, this scooter provides a really smooth ride. Because of bike front tire it does not ride through deep sand with the ease of the All Terrain or other ATV scooters. Because safety is our main concern, this scooter comes equipped with front Caliper brakes and a rear pressure brake. Total length: 61 inch Height: 42 inches. Weight: 46 lb. The platform is 19 inch long with a rear width of 9 inch tapering to 8 inches in the front. Also it has a harness hook at the front fork. We do not carry any dog harnesses. You can stand comfortably with your feet side by side while the dogs pull. It will handle up to 500 lb.! Color: Red or Black (Yellow and Silver are no longer available.) Photos show the fake rear fender which is no longer available. $280 plus $65 shipping and box fee
The Trike Scooter
The Trike Scooter Price-Item-Order-Information
The Trike Scooter is the most stable dog sled scooter for aggressive riders.
This is a heavy duty dog sled scooter for big & powerful dogs. This scooter has an exceptionally wide rear axle to prevent flipping. It has 2 break systems, one is the front disc break and another one for the rear foot break. If the rider prefers the Hi Seat, we will extend the break pedal behind the seat post to either side of platform. Please let us know which side you prefer.
Color :Red, Blue or Black (Yellow and Silver are no longer available.) Shipping/handling fee is $75. To compare other scooters please check the chart at Dog-Scooter page.
We have 3 different kinds of Scooters:
Please see the below chart to compare tire dimensions. Each tire dimension has different characteristics for example, the smaller-width tire requires less energy to propel the scooter forward and allows you to turn the scooter with greater ease. At the same time, the greater-width tire has its own advantage in terms of its ability to ride over rough terrain with greater ease.

My two year old Alaskan Malamute took to the mushing instantly. In her blood. ..Todd
great quality product and fast service and shipping. the dog scooter I got is SO SO FUN!...Brian
Information about Harness:
I'm very interested in your dog scooter, it seems much more substantial than most others I've seen. Do you have specs on it? (brake type, wheel type and size, handlebar height, etc.) They may be somewhere on your site and I missed them...Thanks! Scooter Specs and Price
All Terrain, Slick ATV and Dually ATV Scooters have fat front tires which are like a mountain bike and Slick or Dully Scooters are like a regular bike. If you ride the scooter at rough dirt roads with some ruts, I recommend All Terrain or other ATV Scooters which have fat front tires.. If you ride on a paved sidewalk or smooth dirt road I recommend either Dully or Slick Scooters. which have front hand breaks.
I love my Dually Scooter. It is easy for Henry to pull and he loves pulling it. Thank you again, Dorothymail to her Lake Forest Park, WA

It is very interesting to know that some dog lovers hitch their dogs to their scooters and run with their dogs before the snow season.
We have some comments from our customers. If you have any questions, please ask them through e-mail.
1. Comments from Heather in Ottawa, Canada, July 4, 2001
I have had a couple of chances to try out the ATV (All Terrain) scooter so far. The rear step-on brake makes a really nice gentle drag brake (speed reducer). From looking at the pictures, I thought it would be hard to step on the rear brake and make a nice even pressure to control the dogs speed. In reality, it is quite comfortable to stand on the scooter with pressure on the brake. Works great. What the rear brake can do for me right now is really stop. I can stand on it with all my weight (115 lbs.), and we are still moving if the dogs are motivated. If we are on the gentle downhill, the dogs don even slow down to a trot-they are still at a run with me standing on the brake. My two dogs are 56 lbs. (retriever) and 52 lbs. (short haired pointer mix).
So far I only recommend the scooter for use with one dog, and not a really powerful one.
But, I am going to look at ways to improve the braking. I was thinking maybe taking some rubber and bolt it to the face of the brake so that it rubber against rubber for the rear wheel brake. That should work better as long as the grass is not wet. I will tell you if I come up with anything.
Heather. From Ottawa, Canada on Sep. 14, 2001
It is Heather here from Ottawa, Canada. Now that the weather is cooling off, I have taken the ATV scooter out for some great runs with the dogs. I pleased with the way it handles rough terrain - the clearance is fairly low because it a scooter, but it has a sturdy skid plate so that it just slides over large lumps. I have improved the brake by drilling holes in the brake lever and attaching a longer piece of heavy steel. Now when I stand on the brake I can lock up the back wheel, at least on gravel. On pavement I can not quite lock the wheel so the dogs can still pull forward a bit - but works well enough for my two dogs. I am
114 pounds, so perhaps a heavier person would get more leverage out of the brake as ordinary designed. For me, the original brake did not even provide enough leverage to stop going down a hill. If there is a re-design in the works, please consider putting in a longer brake bar with more bend to it, so that there is lots of distance for it to move before it hits the foot plate. It should put a big dent in the tire when fully applied. I am not sure any customers using your scooter at ski hills would appreciate this as well. Overall I am much impressed by the rugged construction. Hope they are selling well. Will send a photo when I get firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Comments from Jane of Alaska, July 29, 2001
Just wanted you to know I am enjoying my scooter and will send pictures of my dog pulling me as soon as they are developed. I scooter with two Siberian Husky sled dogs, and our biggest problem is that the weather is too warm for these dogs to work hard. In the fall when the temperature is closer to 50F we will be able to go faster and farther. I am not having problems with the brakes. I wonder if your customer in Canada has enough air pressure in her tires. I do not think better brakes will stop a team of dogs anyway, since the scooter is too light and could easily be dragged with the wheels locked. I use the brake to keep the scooter from hitting the dogs when they slow down or stop. I never try to slow the dogs down with the brake, because I use voice commands for slowing down and stopping. My friends and I are impressed with how well this scooter handles in loose gravel and on trails with big rocks. It is very solid, and I do not worry about it coming apart on even the roughest rides. The only thing I have added to the scooter are reflectors and a flashing red light on the front. I run the scooter on public roads, and need to be seen by cars and people who are walking. I will write again later. Jane click to enlarge Boston Snow Dog Team

Slick ATV Scooter This Slick ATV Scooter has an aggressive look and ride. The main difference between regular Slick Scooter and this Slick ATV Scooter is this ATV Scooter has a big front tire same as our All Terrain Scooter, 16 inch diameter 4 inch wide pneumatic front tire and 14.5 inch diameter, 6 inch wide, Chevron rear tire, which does not limit your ability where to ride. This scooter handles well in loose gravel and on trails with big rocks with the roughest rides. The Slick ATV Scooter needs some weight shift when turn because of big front tire but it handles big rocks, mud, and loose sand-dirt with ease. To compare with All Terrain Scooter, you may feel this scooter runs straighter forward because of big wide rear tire. The Dually ATV Scooter has a 61 inch length, 42 inch height, 22 lb. weight. The platform is 19 inch long with a rear width of 9 inch tapering to 8 inches in the front. You can stand comfortably with your feet side by side while the dogs pull. It will handle up to 500 lb.! Color available is red blue or black

|3. Comments from Nichole from Quarts Hill, Ca on Oct. 5, 2001 |
I just stopped by your website for the first time in several months and I wanted to say what a nice job and how much I like the improvements and changes.
I particularly enjoyed the section on using your scooters with dogs. When I bought my scooter several months ago it wag with the intention of using it to do some specific lead dog training one on one with my various dogs. I can honestly say I have not been disappointed. Your scooters are beautifully made and hold up well to the extra punishment this kind of use put them through. In my case I am running my team in the Antelope Valley and the desert terrain (in some places deep sand and bushes with thorns) makes anything with less durable wheels a poor choice.
When I purchased my scooter the only concern I had was with the braking system. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out. It works well for keeping the scooter from accidentally bumping the dogs and provides enough drag to slow them down slightly when needed. I have run my adult team ( a Siberian, a Malamute, and a Korean Jindo) with the scooter and even with that much power the brake was adequate. These dogs can drag my 140 pound cart with the wheels locked down so I never expected the brake on the scooter to stop them. I am fortunate to have a well trained team...I would not suggest anyone try running more than one dog in front of a scooter unless they are very well trained.
While the braking system currently on the scooter does work reasonably well, I was wondering if there is any way to rig a hand brake as well. I have at times found myself using my back foot for balance (turning corners at speed and such) and at the same time needing to brake. A hand operated brake would make this possible. If you ever do develop a hand braking system for this scooter please be sure to let me know. It would make this currently wonderful scooter absolutely perfect.
I recently added a Malamute pup to my team and have been using my scooter extensively for his initial training. It has been an enormous help, allowing him to pull without adding enough weight to stress his still growing body. The scooter is an excellent alternative to my big cart. I have to compliment the durability of your scooter here as well...my pup has yet to truly learn to STOP pulling and not only did the scooter survive being drug 10 feet on its side (with me standing on top and the handle bar buried in the sand) but it was totally undamaged and the paint did not even scratch.
Thank you again for such an excellent, well made produce.

Hi Kaz & Jack,
I want to finally write and tell you how delighted I am with my new Slick Scooter that I purchased last week. It has worked absolutely fantastic! As I told Jack, looking at pictures on the web hardly does justice to how well-made and solid the scooter is. As soon as I saw it I knew I had found what I was looking for. I have taken my dogs for a run every single day I had it, and my wife made me promise to give them a rest tomorrow!
The scooter handles surprisingly well when the huskies are pulling it, even on turns and quick stops. My biggest concern when I got the scooter was that I would turn one way and the dogs would want to turn the other way or keep going straight. Well, my dogs are pretty fast but turning has not been a problem at all. In fact it is quite easy when you get used to it. Basically, the momentum of the scooter pulls the dogs in the direction you want to go. I gradually break to slow them and when I start turning, even if the dogs are running straight, they get pulled in the direction I want to go and will change their direction. I started at slower speeds with big gradual turns and the dogs seem to always position themselves in front of the scooter. I can now turn pretty accurately even when they are at almost a full run. I am not sure all dogs would have the instinct to do this but huskies sure do). Falling off the scooter has not been an issue at all. The thing is so large and stable and the rear tire just hugs the road. I can not say enough about how this thing handles. It is an EXTREMELY smooth ride. If things get too curvy or I am coming up to some traffic I simply use the breaks and the scooter stops on a dime. The front caliper break and the rear step can stop this thing instantly, as good as any bike. At first I mostly used the hand break since I was not accustomed to using a big step break but it does not take long to figure it out. Before I hooked the dogs to the scooter I rode around a bit to get familiar with it. Using my foot I got a good rate of speed and practiced the breaks. (I left some nice wide skidmarks using the step break). And needless to say, it will go as fast as the dogs can pull. My neighbors think I am trying to set a land speed record! I have seen some other scooters on the internet but none had the big back tire that the rhino has. I can not imagine a more stable ride without it. And the large platform allows me to ride with one of my kids at the same time. I hope to send some pics shortly.
My only suggestion would be to place a steel loop on the front of the neck to attach the lead to. You can not just loop the lead over one of the handle bars because there would be too much pull to one side. You have to wrap the lead around the neck of the scooter and then feed the ends through it to attach it. Which means you can not attach the dogs until after the lead is attached to the scooter. Sometimes one dog will not sit still while I am trying to attach the other and it can be hard to keep the scooter upright. But this is just a minor complaint and I am sure it will go smoother the more the dogs get used to it.Thanks again for a fantastic scooter. I have never looked so forward to talkingE the dogs. I highly recommend this scooter for anyone who has dogs that love to run or pull. Best of luck, Gellerman, Mark

Have just ordered a red all-terrain scooter from you based on my friend Heather recommendations. I too will be using it for dog scootering behind my rocket dog. I am sure I will be modifying the brake as well.
Please, can you tell me how long it takes to ship? I will be visiting the shipping address in about 10 days and want to make sure that it is there. Thanks, and I am looking forward to my scooter.

Certainly, I borrowed Heather scooter for a feature that was done on us for the Discovery Channel. It will not air until sometime next year. But the film crew was really impressed with both the dog and the scooter! Eat one point Havoc pulled me on the scooter with the cameraman crouched down in front of me on the scooter as well and we were flying ! I get a kick out of those comments who say brakes are fine I just use voice to slow down my dog, E Ha!. when you have rocket dog you need to be able to add some resistance so that the dog knows you mean business when you say hoa! Basically, Heather has lengthened the brake pedal so she can apply more force. perhaps facing the part that comes in contact with the tire with something a bit more abrasive might work. I will let you know when I get it. Thanks for your efforts to get it there as soon as possible.
