Canicross runs at today’s level are not really possible without a running belt. The running belt transfers your dog’s power to your body and is designed to make running as comfortable and effective as possible. The advantage: You don’t hold a leash in your hand but have your hands and arms free and can use them to balance your body on difficult trails. Also, you can use hiking poles on trails in the mountains. If you carry a backpack, our running belts won’t get in the way because they all sit low on your hips.
