Dog Powered Scooter

I was recently emailed about the Dog Powered Scooter and the Dog Powered Recumbent Tadpole Trike. From the photos on their website, these contraptions look a bit cooky to me, but perhaps if you've got a big dog and you want him to push you along...this might be really cool for you.
What do you think???

Typically, dog mushing/pulling is done with the dog in front, similar to a horse pulling a cart. The human driver must work with the dog to control the direction of the vehicle.

The Dog Powered Scooter and the Dog Powered Recumbent Tadpole Trike were designed so that the human driver can still control the direction of the vehicle. As the dogs are behind the vehicle, they provide the power, but not the steering (think rear wheel drive, like in a BMW).

Allegedly, the Dog Powered Scooter and the Dog Powered Recumbent Tadpole Trike are the first dog pulled vehicles which place the dog/dogs in the back, thus giving the human driver precision steering control of the dog with no commands necessary. They claim that virtually no dog training is required, thus making dog mushing accessible to most breeds, age of driver, location and season. They also believe it's easy to ride, safe, and appropriate for the urban environment.

So is this crazy or the new trend in environmentally dog friendly transportation?

I think my dog, Kobi, (a Havanese) is looking at these photos thinking: "No way am I going to be pulling mom in that! Hmmm, perhaps it's for the Chow (our neighbor down the hall) to pull both of us around the neighborhood?"
