Running with your dog offers numerous health benefits for both you and your beloved canine companion. All breeds of dog need to get out for at least one walk per day, but many working dogs such as Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes or Samoyeds need to get out in the fresh air far more often than this. Therefore, running with your dog is a great way to keep them in shape while also doing your own waistline a world of good. Canicross is fast becoming one of the most popular ways of running with dogs - so why not invest in some canicross equipment and give it a try?
What do I need to get started with Canicross?
One of the most attractive aspects of canicross and running with your dog is its simplicity - purchase a few pieces of canicross equipment and you're ready to roll. Although a simple dog lead is theoretically viable, a canicross harness is much safer and more comfortable for your dog, as it allows for freer running and avoids any problems associated with collar rub or straining. The canicross dog harness is attached via a bungee line to a canicross belt, which goes around your waist and ensures that both running parties feel secure but free.
This Canicross line, with built in shock absorber, is suitable for competition as RFEDI regulations. Includes quick release snap. 1.6m in length (2m when stretched)
