Anyone in the US participate in Canicross?? (Read 79 times)

    My Vizsla just turned a year old and I am looking to do more running with her than just neighborhood runs and runs at the dog park. I have been interested in the sport of Canicross (trail running with dog helping to pull) but most of the events I have researched are in the UK. Does anyone in the US participate in the dog/human team races? I have an official Canicross harness, belt, and bungie leash on my Christmas list for this year. Any other gear needed for 10-25 mile runs?

     

    Anyone in the US know of any regular Canicross races or somewhere to find them? I am in West Tennessee so something in the South would be preferable. I can easily just go on trail runs and track us with my Garmin but actual races would be a lot more fun.

        Canicross, which involves running with a dog on a leash and harness, is a popular sport in the United States, although it may not be as well-known as it is in the UK. There are likely to be canicross events and clubs in your area, although they may be more difficult to find than traditional running events. One way to find canicross events in the US is to search online for canicross clubs or organizations in your region. You can also check with local dog parks, pet stores, or veterinarians to see if they have any information on canicross events in your area. Additionally, you can try contacting the American Canine Association (ACA) or the International Sled Dog Racing Association (ISDRA) to see if they have any information on canicross events in your region.

        In terms of gear, in addition to a harness, belt, and leash, you may want to consider purchasing a reflective vest or other safety gear for yourself and your dog if you plan on running in low light conditions. You may also want to bring along water and snacks for both yourself and your dog, as well as any other supplies that you may need during your run (e.g., first aid kit, sunscreen, etc.). It's also a good idea to be prepared for any potential hazards that you may encounter on the trail, such as wildlife, uneven terrain, or inclement weather.

              Except for a small group of us that arrange Canicross events, there is actually no such thing as Canicross in the US. By the way, I'm looking for a website where I can play online casino in my spare time since I enjoy playing online casinos, and while I'm seeking, I discovered https://casinosanalyzer.com/online-casinos/amazon-gift-card In this website, I can view various online casinos where I can play online casino, and if you want to use your Amazon gift card, I can see the sites that accept Amazon gift cards here. This website also helps me choose the finest online casino website, so you should go to it as well.
