When running with a dog, you need a harness, a belt, and a bungee.
The Freemotion Harness is developed for running with your dog and is a harness that gives your dog free movements and has the correct pulling point for this activity.
To take care of your back and to improve your running technique, we recommend a good belt. The CaniX Belt is a specialized dog-running belt and handles the pull-force in an ergonomic way for your body.
A bungee is essential, and we have several bungee models to fit any dog. If your dog has a powerful pull, the Bungee Leash 2m is best suited. If you have a dog that does not pull as much or you have a small-sized dog, we recommend the Touring Bungee.
The Touring Bungee comes in many sizes. The 1,3cm is perfect to use with small-sized dogs because it is thinner and has a lighter carabiner.
Remember good running shoes before you head off.
