Canicross and bikejoring

In these disciplines, the human runs or rides a bike hitched to the dog on a natural marked-out course. The goal is to get to the end of the course in the fastest possible time. Human and dog have to work together, although the dog determines the speed and must always be in front or level with the human. Pulling the dog or running or cycling in front of the dog is not permitted.

Some special equipment is required for this sport. The dog should wear a comfortable harness, connected with the human by a lead with integrated shock absorber attached to a special belt.

These disciplines are open to all dogs, with or without pedigrees, aged 12 months or over on the day of the race. Dogs must have received some obedience training and be sociable.

Dogs are typically examined by a veterinarian the day before a race to check their identity, health and vaccination status.
