The Distance Harness
The harness is fully padded at the front - to increase your dogs comfort when pulling. The design of the Distance Harness takes in consideration the steeper line angle in canicross, bikejor and walking and while using this harness, the dog's pull force becomes more evenly distributed.
This harness is made out of 1 1/4 inch wide durable webbing featuring an eye catching design and reflective thread in the webbing for visibility in low light conditions.The body strap is adjustable.
The Distance Harness only reaches about 1/3 down the dog's body, which eliminates the pressure on the dog's hips therefore making this harness an excellent choice of a harness for any dog with lower back problems. Crabbing dogs (dogs running sideways) will straighten out too.
K9 Trail Time recommends this harness for dogs who like to pull out front and drop back by your side. It is an excellent choice for dogs who participate in a wide variety of activities as it is multi-purpose and suitable for a variety of breeds and sizes of dog.
For proper harness fit measure the dog's neck circumference half way between the usual collar position and shoulder blades. And if you're not sure about the size go by the weight of your dog or contact us for help: [email protected]

The Howling Dog Alaska light weight Canicross/Skijoring Belt is made from a porous, water resistant material and ensures good extended pulling power. We recommend to fasten the belt around the hips in order to limit pressure on stomach muscles and lower back. This "step in" belt features a "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 buttock straps will bring the "lowered pull force" into play. Once the belt is properly fitted, the excess straps can be trimmed. Leg straps are removable
*Now even more comfortable and with a reflective strip for safety*
K9 Trail Time recommends this belt for: Canicrossers and dog walkers who are looking for an economical, padded belt with leg straps to keep the belt in place. This belt is suitable for larger waists.
NB This belt has NO quick release and NO integrated bungee (all bungee will come from the line)
The Howling Dog Alaska Canicross / Bikejor / Skijor line is made out of the eye-catching Howling Dog webbing in either red or yellow and fitted with a bungee suitable for all dog sports but also general walking.
The built in bungee helps to absorb shocks from your dog unexpectedly "jerking" you around. The line is made out of one inch wide tubular webbing and it measures about 5 1/2 feet un-stretched. It features a strong bronze snap to attach the line to your dog and a handle to attach to your canicross belt or bike by looping it through on itself or with a caribiner, it can also be used for walking in the same way.
