The Double Decker 4X4 was given its name because the riders’ seat positions are at a higher level than where the dogs run and offer a new perspective for riders and dogs alike.
Built out of lightweight aluminum, The Double Decker is totally custom from the ground up.The goal was to make it as natural and comfortable for the dogs as possible, so it was designed to have multiple dog-connecting positions. This rig can accommodate different sized dogs and/or dogs with different gaits or stride lengths.
Bill considers it a true 4X4 because it rides four (or more) dogs and four people. Designed with sightseeing family trots in mind, it sees most its action in the Shenandoah at a private location with the perfect running terrain and access to the Shenandoah River for cooldowns along the way.
The LowRyder is an incumbent trike Trike with a low riding position, placing the rider close to the dogs. This position is comfortable and when training, being at dog-level works great.
There are two ways to attach the dogs to this The LowRyder. The first is a Springer, which is excellent for running puppies. It keeps the stress off the puppies’ growing bones and gives them a little movement room so they can find their sweet spot next to the vehicle where they feel comfortable to run. The dogs can also be attached by U-bars. This is a little more confining for the dog, but it gives the driver more control.
