A Dog's Tale | SHIMANO

It all starts with the trail. The crunch of the dirt, the smell of a dewy morning ride, or the feeling of brushing away pebbles with a perfectly timed belly scrub. These are the happy memories of a trail dog’s life well lived.
Raven is a 13-year-old retired trail dog from Squamish, British Columbia who’s spent countless days frolicking on loamy singletrack beneath towering spruces. Old age has slowed her down, and now Raven happily lies in the driveway, watching dog after dog, and their human, head for the hills.
Celebrating the joys of mountain biking through the eyes of the trail dog, Raven takes us from her driveway memories in BC to the high deserts of Utah, to freshly cut South African trails and back again. We meet some of the feistiest, four-legged trail personalities along the way, who all enjoy the mountain bike world in their own way, just like us humans do, whether it’s hitting jump lines, lapping through the loam, or setting out to build new trail.

    If you're in the UK, head to Staffordshire. There is a trail ride called; Follow The Dog, or Chase the Dog. Set up by the owner as he tried to find decent trail through his new land, and his little Jack Russell terrier, always seemed to find the better route, hence the title. Ita in Cannock Chase, Staffordshire. Decent riding too!

We've taken him on a hike and plenty of leashles walks and rides in my neighborhood and one on a concrete bike path and he seems to do great. I'm excited to take on some mtb trails next time I go.

    The only trail dog I ever had was a Yorkie that little girl was my dest friend for a long time. I miss her so much. I used to have to go slow on the decents so she could keep up but that's only fair. She used to go slow on the climbs so I could keep up. Seeing those little dogs giving their all and loving it reminds me of Jaymee my beloved trail dog and best friend.

    As others have said, a lot won't truly understand unless they've got one or if they're lucky more 4 legged, trail friends. Just lost one of mine yesterday and lost my true trail Bud just over 2 years ago, so this video really hit home hard. Excellent work Shimano and all involved, the filming was mazing, the dogs put their humans to shame, amazing scrubs and inside lines. Tears the whole time watching.

    Is Shimano getting into pet trade? Cause this sure looks like a trail dog advert 😅 I wanna trail dog! 🏔️⛰️🏞️🚵🐕🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 Except it's such huge responsibility, and we suck proper as dog's best friends. There are some and will be more great dog owners stories in this comment section, about giving best life to their dog. Realise this: no dog is truly happy to only have a human as a companion. A DOG is a dog's best friend, not a human. And second thing is I don't think I know of a dog, that didn't like sex, so describing "the best life we could give him" while remembering a dog, that was alone whole life, is just another ignorant thing people do.... Have some proper thought how will you approach this people, don't just wing it, it's not a toy.

    My dogge was "educated" by another older (smarter) trail dog. There is a DH trail here with a climb that crosses back and forth over it. Arlo (a German Shepard and sr dogge) would head straight up through the woods. My younger, all GO! GO! GO!, dog Merc (a Dobe) would run ahead on the main trail. Arlo would wait at an intersection about 3 side hills up from us (you could look uphill and spot him through the trees). Merc would stop dead and just stare at Arlo, when he got to him. He never figured out how Arlo got ahead, cause he had to be in front on the climb and would bolt when we got near, Arlo would wait for his master to pass and head up again. Then on the DH Merc would throw "bubba whips" to keep from skinning that deep chest. He sent more roost that a 400cc Yammy. Now he's the senior dog. No more rides with him (leg injury), hikes now, but you can see that spark out in the woods. SQUIRRLES!
