I recommend this product to many friends. We had tried everything ... basket in front, behind; the little cart behind the bike .... but THE Buddyrider is the TOP! Good weight distribution no discomfort to pedal and the dog feels safe near us, we have it in front of us .. and sees him all! They show off to death when we ride a bike
Sulo, 2 years old Bichon de Havanais has enjoyed his Buddyrider in Lapland, north of the Arctic Circle. Sulo has enjoyed the ride and even reindeers have been amazed.
I recently purchased the Buddyrider combo.
I’m just writing to say how happy we are with the product after testing it out on a recent cycling holiday. Maple was recently injured and if we didn’t have the Buddyrider she wouldn’t have been able to accompany us. Almost every single person we passed shrieked with delight at the sight of Maple on the bicycle and we let everyone know where we got it!

We are really happy with the Buddyrider. When Morris thinks I’m walking to my bike he directly stands next to me and looks at me with his puppy eyes; can I please go with you?. He loves sitting in his chair and riding to the woods with us. It gives other people a smile when we passes them.
Simba is delighted to make bike rides with us. Very easy to install and super secure.
I received the package two Mondays ago. For some days I got muffin (my dog) to familiarize with Buddyrider on the ground and finally on the weekend we took the first bike ride: it was a total success! She loves it and feels very safe, and I find it very easy to handle and very stable.
Today the Buddyrider arrived. Of course, we immediately mounted it on the bike and tested it with our 2.5kg Maltese. Before getting the Buddyrider, we had a basket on the handlebars which made riding quite strenuous because it kept bouncing back and forth. She is very relaxed and does not wobble back and forth all the time. I have to say riding the Buddyrider is totally relaxed, for both of us. We are super happy with it.
Talking about Buddyrider, I only have to congrats you for the product. It is very easy to fit it to my wife's bike. And from the point of view of Hiro (my 7 kg schnauzer) he is delighted with his new way to go to beach.
And yes, you're really right. I can see a smile on people’s faces when they see my dog in the Buddyrider.
We received the Buddyrider quickly and perfectly packaged.
The first impression is of a good quality item. The bike assembly is easy, but you need to take your time in adjust the chair to the correct position. A few millimeters high or down, front or rear, can be a big difference in your cycling comfort.
Nuka, our 5 kgs Maltese female, take confidence with the chair at the first minutes of riding. At now, she enjoy every ride with the Buddyrider. We are so happy and satisfied.
We are very happy with the purchase of BuddyRider. We would recommend it to everyone we meet. We have already received a number of inquiries where we have purchased it.

We installed our Buddyrider yesterday and took our toy poodle, named Daisy, for a ride. Daisy LOVED it! The product was very easy to install and it is a lot sturdier than I had expected. It is very solid/stable. Great product - congratulations and I wish you much success.
Peter, Scarborough Ont
Ok - firstly I HAVE MY BUDDYRIDER and I have to say, I had very high expectations and this product blew them away!!!!! One ride and our girl Daisy (Daisy-Duke), was jumping at the bike for another. The product exceeds what I hoped for and is well built, makes my pup and me feel secure and she loves the wind on her head on rides. A++
Vickie, Jeff and Cody
[Our dog] took to it like a duck to water and already has gone for quite a few rides. Even though Cody can be a little bit skittish he didn't show any fear what so ever with this. Thank you so much for your product. I am sure that we will be a good advertisement when we have him biking with us. He loves people and they are attracted to him anyways so with this it will even be more. For sure we will give a huge thumbs up when asked about the product. Thanks again. Cheers.
I am already completely smitten with my Buddyrider, and will absolutely be recommending your wonderful product to my friends.
Oh my goodness, we LOVE our buddyrider. We received on Tuesday last week (fast delivery - thanks) and headed to Kejimikujik National Park camping on Thursday. Put Tika in her new "seat" and she loved it right away. We have been having so much fun riding our bikes around the trails at the park. However, we don't seem to get too far when someone stops us and asks where we got the neat bike seat for our dog. Thank you very much for allowing us to enjoy camping and all the experiences that go along with it like biking with our best friend.
Just wanted to drop a line to say how much Zander and I enjoy the Buddyrider. It's perfect--I had tried a trailer, basket in the back, and basket on the handlebars. They all had some major disadvantage for Zander or for me (he weighs 18 pounds). I retain good weight distribution and handlebar use with the Buddyrider
Jeff (Sit Happens Dog Training Inc)
Yes, I have been using the Buddyrider with my JRT and would give this product a rating of 5 out of 5
Got it installed on my bike yesterday, and we went for a test run today. It is great!! I said "Toby let's go in your Buddyrider" and he ran to the door (this is a dog that hides when he sees the leash come out for walks). He sat there like a furry little king as we went around the block. Can`t wait to go for some longer rides now. I love having him up close & personal.... much better than the trailer.
Just want to share with you Tuco on the bike, it took 15 min to Install and works great! I'm a happy customer
Recently purchased one for our mini schnauzer Fancy. She loves it, we love it! Great design, well made, perfect!! Great value, excellent price, packaging, and easy to assemble.
My husband and I send much thanks for looking after our order! The personal assistance, professionalism and enthusiasm we received from both Shelley and Barry is outstanding.
Just got my buddyrider and absolutely love it. Its well built and easy to install. Most of all you don't even notice the extra weight and it doesn't impact steering at all. Nikki loves it, now to get some goggles and scarf!
I bought a buddyrider a few months ago, and wanted to tell you how much Eddie and I love it! Eddie is a crippled rescue dog no, but he has a great life! I often take him kayaking and bike riding, and bike riding is his favorite thing! I had a pack and carried him on my back, but he is about 17 pounds, and with a bulging disc, sometimes this bothered me a lot. He is too heavy for a basket on the front of the bike, so I was looking for something I could put on the back, when I stumbled across your page. Best purchase ever! I love this thing, and it was worth every penny!
Gail and Robert
It's the best investment we could have made. Our mini doxie has separation anxiety and we love bike riding, he loves it and we go everywhere with him. We are 100% satisfied. Just wanted to let you know we are thrilled with our Buddyrider!
We have had the Buddyrider for a few years now.. the dogs love to sit and watch the world go by as the wind blows thru their ears..
This is an absolutely solid, well-designed, well-tested, quality durable materials safe product. Our West Highland White Terrier loves it. She is a senior dog, not much for walking great distances anymore, however from the day of her "inaugural flight" in her Buddyrider late this summer, she was an instant fan. In the dog world, there is only one experience better than riding with your head outside the side-window of a car; riding in front cockpit position on a bike in your Buddyrider. This product is a genuine warm smile generator, a consistent reaction from all those we cycle past who witness it, including regular queries on our cycling trips about where people can find one of these for their own dogs. The Dragon's Den team could not have been more wrong about this absolutely genius invention. This has been a great addition to our cycling daytrips which otherwise were occurring without McTavish until now. Thank-you. Best wishes for continued success.
Best Part of 2020..!
Literally my favorite part of this crazy year was purchasing a new bike and my buddy rider! I can not tell you how many awesome adventures my little rescue dog , Angel, and I have enjoyed! Here are a few pics from our favorite spots in California! Thank you for such an amazing product and being a highlight in my year of craziness!
This is the best customer service I have experienced in my whole life. I appreciate everything you have done for me.
Riding with my dog on the Buddyrider is one of life's simple pleasures that I can continue doing during these COVID times.
Steve, Branson Missouri
We are here in Branson, Missouri and we have really enjoyed taking our Cotton De Tulear, Maizie, for rides in the buddyrider. She is so happy to get to go with us! We have taken her on multiple adventures and everyone makes cute comments like “can I ride too”, “she is so cute in her bike seat”, and “she is living her best life”. Some say funny stuff like “maybe my Mastiff can fit” or “is there room for me?”. I’m so glad you created this.
Emily, Key West, FL
I would like to thank your company so much for the buddy rider seat! Biking around Key West, FL is the main way to get around here and this seat has made it easy and convenient to take my little guy Bingley with me. Thank you so much for such a great product!
Sheryl, Waterloo ON
We absolutely LOVE the Buddyrider! It has changed our lives & Murphy Dog's too in such a positive way! He loves to trail ride & mountain bike too! The Buddyrider has meant he can always come on camping trips & day trips too! Murphy doesn’t like to be left out of an adventure & will patiently make that known while we pack up the bikes.
I was on my bike along with my dog in her Buddyrider, when hit by a driver making a turn directly into my path. I suffered a broken wrist and required surgery. Gladly, aside from being just a little shaken up, my dog was safe and free from injury.
As soon as I was able, we were back on the bike. I can't begin to tell you how excited my dog still gets when she's spies the bike coming out of the garage.
Glad we made the investment in your sturdy product. I can't help but wonder if I had one of the soft carriers that attach to the handlebars if the outcome would have been the same. Thank you for making such a great product.
Treena, Mark, BC and Frankie Hein
We got our Buddyriders in July 2021. We absolutely adore them and so do our dogs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for enabling us to spend more time with our ‘Buddies’ and have more adventures with them. You have greatly enriched all of our lives.
I received the Buddyrider for our sweet boy Harry for Mother’s Day 2020. Harry is the talk of the neighborhood when we are riding! We love to see the double-takes and smiles we get when people see him enjoying his ride. Thanks for a wonderful product!
Harry is ready to go when I say “bike ride!” Thanks again!!
