Hi all,

I’m interested in doing tandem abseiling/rappelling with my dog. 

Strange activity I know, and unsurprisingly I’m having a lot of trouble finding locations that do it.

If anyone knows of any locations or companies that do this please can you let me know? (I’m based in Hampshire)

Thank you!

When you say ‘tandem’ do you mean side by side on separate ropes? I’m visualising a few teething problems.

Oh, come on; a dog on a tandem is pretty impressive! I wonder who does the steering?

Yes, it could be very ruff

You're clearly barking mad.

Sounds a bit hairy to me.

I hope he lives to tell the tail

In reply to JM89:

As a dog owner myself I don't think I'd put my dog through that experience personally.

Each to their own but you choose the risk but force your pet...

Just my input.

DO NOT attempt this on your own. You need a chum ( preferably a pedigree one).

This is a terrible idea, you really need to paws for thought!

Great idea! If you succeed you could Winalot.

I assume you would tie in with a bowwowline?
