Feel pretty good about taking my doogle on trains for the most part but I have no idea how to safely catch out on the fly with her (well as safe as it can be). Anyone with larger pups have any advice to give about this? It's not something I'd like to make a habit of but sometimes its the only option.

There really is no safe way to catch a train on the fly with your dog in my opinion, I had so many close calls back when I travelled with my dog, and other peoples dogs. Not to mention an old friend of mine lost both his legs doing this. But you should definitely bring your dog if they like it.

She's going where I go either way, just might have to reconsider how I get places

I don't recommend catching IMs on the fly but a grainer with a low cut porch is easy enough. Shoulder harness is a must. Just lift em up there and make sure they're well behaved enough to give you time to get on.

I'd highly suggest avoiding catching on the fly with a large dog.
Just hitch, or something.
Hell, wait for another train to stop.

Getting off of moving trains that are going slow is a different story.. But I try to avoid both. Mainly, because I do have a large dog. Otherwise my habits may be different. But you have extra responsibility weighing on you when your involving another life completely dependent on you, at that point.

I've heard stories of people trying to throw their dog on the train on the fly and accidentally throwing them under it. There is no safe way to catch on the fly with a dog.
