1- Running Belt – for you 😉 –
A technical belt specially designed for the comfort of the driver and to avoid any excessive pressure on the spinal column (to learn more click here).
2- Harness – for your 4-legged friend 😉 –
It is important to choose it after an accurate evaluation of the physical structure of the dog. Different types of harnesses are available on the market and they can cover also all the different styles of dog’s running (to learn more click here).
3- Line – leash –
It is the “connection cable” between you and your 4-legged friend. It is hooked on one side to the dog harness and on the other on your running belt.
4- Shock absorber – for you and your dog –
It is very important that between the driver and the dog there is a cushioning system which is able to soften the sudden pulls which can occur during a 6-legged run.
The reason why I preferred to include this “tool” as a separate part of the canicross kit, it is due to the fact that it is possible to find two different systems.
In both cases the role of the shock absorber is carried out by very resistant elastics with the difference, however, that in a system the elastic is integrated within the line, while in the other the cushioning is inserted directly on the belt.
