Bike Trailer

Finally got the Magnum Metro last month and have been using it as much as possible. Only problem is dog gets left behind. I want to get a bike trailer to take him along....he's a 45lb lab mix (good medium sized dog). Anyone have a recommendation on what kind of bike trailer to look for?

I bought an inexpensive Schwinn branded trailer. Regularly haul 65lbs of tools between shops/projects. Ordinarily I’d run from anything with a Schwinn label, but some surprisingly positive reviews encouraged me. But if it were a dog hauler I may have upped the budget. Then again, it works.

How is it for stability? Some of the reviews I've read have had trailers tip over (presuming on turns/curves) .

People haul toddlers safely in nylon trailers all the time, and I've seen dog trailers too. The only time my bike seemed unstable with a trailer is when it was parked. Kaboom. Bike lying on its side. My concern was that they pull so easy with an ebike, I put on a second mirror so I could look at it when riding, to make sure the grandkid hadn't jumped out.

I think you have to be reasonable about your speed. A panic stop is going to jack knife your rig. LOL. Trucker talk.
