All you need to get you out running with your dog. 

Harness

This multi-use harness is one of our best sellers! It is an ideal harness for "beginner" dogs and experienced canine athletes alike.

The Distance Harness only reaches about 1/3 down the dog's body, which eliminates the pressure on the dog's hips while pulling. Therefore it makes this harness an excellent choice of a harness for any dog with lower back problems. Crabbing dogs (dogs running sideways) will straighten out while fitted with this harness. Our Distance Harness comes highly recommended by Wes Rau, a top canine physical therapist.

This harness is made out of 1 1/4 inch wide durable webbing featuring an attractive, eye-catching pattern. A reflective thread is woven into the edges of the webbing for increased night time visibility. The body strap is adjustable. The Distance Harness is fully padded and comfortable for the dog to wear. The slick padding material will allow for the harness to rotate freely around the dog’s body.

A NOTE: If you have a very hard pulling dog, check out our Second Skin Package as this harness is more suited for strong pulling dogs.

Available in Red, Pink, Green, Light Blue

If you have a colour preference please go to the Cart before heading to the checkout and add your colour request in the notes section. 

Line

This line is made out of customized, eye-catching Howling Dog webbing. The line is fitted with bungee which will help to absorb shocks from your dog unexpectedly "jerking" you around. The line measures about 166 cm unstretched. It features a strong bronze snap.

Available in Red or Yellow

Belt

Lightweight yet sturdy Canicross Belt is made from compressed, porous, water-resistant material and ensures good extended pulling power. It is recommended to fasten the belt around the hips in order to limit pressure on stomach muscles. Our "step in" belt features a unique "lowered pull force" design that helps to distribute the pull force to only the hip area covered by the belt as well as the buttocks. This eliminates pressure on the spine. Careful adjustment of the buttocks straps will bring the "lowered pull force" into play. Once the belt is properly fitted, the excess straps can be trimmed. A wide reflective tape has been added for an enhanced nighttime visibility. Plus you will love the practical back pocket!

Leg straps are removable.

One size fits all - Please note this is only available in Yellow

IMPORTANT! The side loops on the belt are simply for clipping things on to (for example a neckline, a dog poop baggie holder, a set of keys or any other small object). Dogs MUST be attached to the metal ring only.

Measuring Guide

We require only one measurement for this Harness: the Neck.

Neck - Measure from an inch or so ahead of the withers at the base of the neck to an inch or so above the breastbone, then double this measurement. Work the tape under the fur; pull it snug, but not stretched. Measure the dog, not the fur! Compare the measurement to the sizing chart, if the neck size and suggested weight don't match, go with the bigger harness to ensure body strap won't sit too close to the dogs armpits. 

Measure only one side of the dog, and then double the measurement. Wrapping the tape measure all the way around the neck may distort the measurement.

Do not measure where the collar sits, but lower - please see the heavy black line on the above diagram.
