With spring coming up, I'm looking forward to spending more outside time with my dogs. There's a very nice park two blocks away, and we go walk around it, which is nice...but while my dogs have a blast, I find walks a bit boring.

I've been looking into those all-terrain rollerblades to start working with, something that will make the walk more fun for me and maybe give my dogs and me a little more of a workout, too! But all the ones I've found are around 250-500 dollars, and while I know how to rollerblade, I certainly don't know which ones would work best, or which brands have the best reputation. I'm willing to spend a good amount on a pair if I know it will last and work well.

Does anyone here own a pair, and rollerblade with your dogs? Any suggestions? I know Cesar Milan uses LandRollers, and they look really fun and nice, but I've heard they're difficult to stop in, and I don't want to not be able to stop quickly!

I frequently rollerblade with my dogs, but I don't have any of the all terrain ones. I just stick to pavement. So, I can't really say much on that.

I did get a nice pair given to me. They are built for speed and have bigger wheels. I really love them!

Once you start rollerblading, you tend to skip regular walks as rollerblading is SO much more fun!blue dog

Do you have a discount sports store somewhere near you? There's a second hand sporting good store in my area that sells used stuff at a fraction of the cost, so maybe you can see if there's something like that near you.

Try Overstock.com too.
