Canicross: take the dog out for a run

canicross.jpeg
The Spring Canicross season kicks off this week in the Eastern Townships. Canicross is basically cross-country running while attached to a DOG.

The runner wears a belt similar to that worn by mountain climbers...it's a running harness with a waist belt and a flexible harness.  The dogs runs out front, propelling their two-legged companion forward at speeds he or she probably couldn't attain on their own.

Genevieve Baril is a dog trainer and a Canicross enthusiast who runs Sirius Canin Sports.  She spoke with Sonali Karnick this morning.
