Canicross Kit

Canicross is the exciting and fast growing sport of off-road running with your dog. It offers a fun, social and highly effective way for you and your dog to get fit. It is also the safest way to enjoy running with your dog – by using specially designed equipment that allows you to run hands free and for your dog to run comfortably and efficiently.

To enjoy canicross you need just three essential items:

 1. A Waist Belt (for you) 

Our technical canicross waist belts with fixed, adjustable leg straps, are specially designed for comfort and to prevent any back strain. 

2. A Harness (for your dog)

It's important that your dog has a properly fitted harness. There are different types according to your dog's size, power and running style. See our sizing guide for more information.


3. A Bungee Running Line

You will need a special bungee line to attach the two of you to each other; one end attaches to your waist belt and the other to your dog's harness. The bungee line helps absorb any shock from the pull of your dog.


Other Essentials:

  • We also recommend that you wear suitable trainers for running in off-road/cross country conditions; trail shoes are ideal
  • Any clothing you wear should be lightweight and comfortable - ideally technical apparel because it wicks away moisture/sweat, dries quickly and is less bulky than cotton garments
  • It's also worth investing in a light rain jacket - it is the UK after all and rain shouldn't get in the way of exercising your dog! 

It's important that you both enjoy canicross which is why we recommend that you read our Guidelines for Running with your Dog for additional tips and advice.
