Cani-cross (canine cross country, popularly referred to as caniX) involves running with your dog. Any dog can take part in the sport as it caters for all, it's a great way for owners to get fit and spend time with their dog. To enter a competition, dogs need to be more than one year old and owners 10 years old to enter. Dogs of any breed can take part. Each owner/dog team starts at individually timed intervals in their age class and then follows a set cross-country course.
As with all new exercise programmes, seek the advice of your doctor and get your dog checked by your vet before starting.
The equipment for Cani-X
Although you don't need any special equipment to take part, it is recommended that everyone thinking of doing it on a regular basis should consider using a specially designed running belt, harness and bungy lead. This equipment not only makes it easier when running but also helps to prevent any sudden jerks and takes the shock out of sudden starts and stops.
