We bought it at a bike shop at Ploen in Germany. It is a Croozer dog trailer.

However I have just googled it and I see there is a website in UK and looks like Amazon also sell it.

I too have one of the ebay ones like the other posters.

No complaints with the trailer itself, but be warned that people often laugh and point.

We could do with one but at 6 1/2 stone

He runs well with the bike but is easily distracted by other dogs and makes a beeline for anyone sitting on a bench to say hallo

He will run on a lead but it worries me that the speed may not be suitable over longish distance. We keep him on the lead if there are lots of cyclists in case he crosses in front of them

We did get some disapproving looks in germany because we were on the wrong side of the cycle path (He runs on that side being an English German Shepherd ) and it never actually inconvenienced anybody as he is on the grass verge and Albert keeps well in

A bit worried as we, well Albert isn't getting any younger but we do have electric bikes

We have one For Sale like the picture "peribro" posted, we bought it for our old pug after his back operation, unfortunately he has now passed away and it is too big for our other pug, Betty, so we have ordered a smaller version. I bought it new and only used it twice, so open to offers.

Thanks to everyone who posted.
Mrs C bought one from ebay and we tested it last week during our stay in Taunton. We used it as the crate in the van to get the dog used to it and she was fine. Once we got it attached to the bike she was a bit nervous and it was a bit bumpy. So we went to the Foam Shop in Taunton and got an offcut of dog bed foam (50% memory thickness 50% ordinary), this worked much better and she now uses it as a bed at home!

We did make a small adaptation to the trailer by putting a bit of plywood on base before putting is bed in.
I could ditto every word of this reply LOL
