Hi,

Do any of you guys run with your doggos and use one of thoes leads that connect around the waist? If so I have a few questions! Smile

How effective are they?

Are they safe even when the dog pulls? Like will it hurt my back or is there enough weight in the body to support the pull? My girl is around 21kgs and fairly strong, she doesn't pull all the time when running but does sometimes.

Is there any you would recommend?

Cheers! Big Grin

Not really sure what you mean a lead that goes around the waist.Do you mean a harness that goes around the chest and behind the front legs?
If so they are fine for walking and running,and far better for the handler to control.I would never put anything around a dogs waist area as this could result in damage to the dogs hind quarters.

Have a look at Canicross equipment. It's a full on sport now and there's a range of kit you can buy. Just had a quick google - there are belts that sit lower, more round your bum, which would reduce the pressure on your back, and also bungee leads to help reduce the immediate pull.

I would still imagine that training not to pull sharply would be needed or at least advisable.

I know some of the forum members do canicross or Cani x as its sometime called. There are some great pics on here of the dogs competing and they also have special canicross harnesses you can buy for the dogs and you can attach the waist lead to those.

Graham, sorry I mean around my waist not the dogs! Laughing

Thanks guys, Yep pulling is a work in progress, she's actually better at not pulling when running than she is when walking but she still needs a bit of work.

Does anyone have any particular recommendations for one particular lead I could attach to her existing harness? I would like a little bit of give in it if possible but not too much as we often run around the streets when we can't get out into the country/ hills :-)

No experience, I'm afraid, but looking at canicross gear the bungee leads sound like what you're after. Maybe worth seeing if you can find a canicross forum, I bet people have discussed it somewhere!
