So how does this 5’2″, 110 lb. photographer get her 140 lb. Great Dane to photo shoots all over New York City? Subways and buses aren’t options–the dog wouldn’t be allowed on. Taxicabs? Not likely. Driving? No. It’s faster to go by bike. What kind of bike can do that? A ShuttleBug handmade by Joe Bike and rechristened the ShuttleDog.
Here’s a ShuttleBug we designed and built for a Great Dane named Alexander Reykjavik (140 lbs.) and his owner (110 lbs., 5’2″). ShuttleDog is shipping to Brooklyn next week. We were tempted to load up our own dogs for a quick photo shoot, but no way—Reyki loves that new-bike smell, and he’s got a big nose.
