Through the tricky bits the dog is better off walking, not on the quad.
Don't tie the dog to the quad. If he/she tries to jump off (often happens when they get unbalanced going around a corner or over a bump) you dont want to drag them or hang them. If you are going too fast for the dog to jump off you should hold it's collar with one hand (which will also make you go slower as only one hand left for driving!). It's best if you can get them to lie down on the back rather than stand. Smaller dogs are okay sitting in front of the rider, but smaller dogs that grow into big dogs...not such a good idea  Wink

cut plywood or better still rubber matting to fit over the bars so dog CANT get legs jammed down into them. right up by your bum is good (unless dog is wet)..my nephew has his stock dogs trained so all his heading dogs sit in front and the huntaways sit on the rear....once they learn they good for life.
