If you're wondering what canicross is then you're not alone.  This is one of the fastest growing sports that one can do with their dog.  It derives from the sport of dog mushing but you are working as a team with Fido.  It's very much a team effort.  While you can certainly participate and just run with your dog the idea behind canicross is that the dog is actually pulling you while you are running.  This sport has gained a lot of popularity across Europe and is gaining popularity here in United States and Canada.  The only thing required is a dog harness, gangline, and canicross belt.  This first race we will not require you have the proper equipment as long as your dog is leashed.  If you have a hard pulling dog you may want to consider a proper pulling harness and belt.  

We want this to be a fun experience for both you and your pet so we encourage you to come out and try out this sport.  This will have its own class so you can participate against other human/dog teams.  While it can be competitive we just want everyone to have fun, no matter what level you or your pup are.  If you really want to challenge yourself you can do the running race first and then the canicross race with Fido.

Windy City Mushers is also a distributor for Howling Dog Alaska and Non-Stop Dogwear and will be on hand to size and sell equipment.  A proper pulling harness is a must for Fido if you really want to make it a fun and enjoyable experience.  If you xc ski and would like to try skijoring with your dog then this is the same equipment and can use it for double duty.
