Best answer:

Answer by dontknow
my kids hooked up the dog to a scooter and left a leash on the collar. they were able to control/correct the dog on commands + they got a pretty good ride. between now and when snow is on the ground the dog will get exercise and re-learn her commands. we have 1 husky with a sled and all the harnesses, ganglines required for dog sledding. the scooter seems to be a great pre-winter thing.
