What is Canicross?

Canicross is the sport of running off-road with your dog. The human participant wears a waistbelt which attaches via a 2-metre bungee line to a padded dog harness. It is a fantastic way to keep you and your dog fit whilst enjoying the great outdoors together. It provides a physical workout for your dog and the use of directional commands will help him to learn to use his brain and build up his confidence. http://www.canicross.org.uk

 

Equipment?
Dogs must wear a suitable harness and be attached to their handler by a line containing some bungee to act as a shock absorber.

Lines must not be longer than 2 meters when fully extended.

A waist belt is strongly recommended for handlers. No head collars, choke chains or flexi leads.
