Running with the Tail Runner harness and bungee lead.
Took CC our border collie out for her first run with the Tail Runner dog harness and bungee lead. I think she loved it. With some time, training and conditioning she may well become a pretty decent running partner
I’d been waiting for CC to be old enough to start her running.
Did CC Run?
She already loves her long walks. Covering 8-10km per day usually and still has a lot of energy. Adding in some running may help keep her happy.
Looks like she will take to the harness and bungee lead quite well. Turns out, she was better with direction and following commands that I though she would be.
CC has been used to walking with a lead and correction chain. I thought there may be some issues with the harness not providing the same level of feedback if she tried to go off course. Running beside me instead. I was pleasantly surprised.
There will definitely be more runs into the future.
The lead and harness is impressive. Definitely a purchase that I’m happy with. Check them out at Tail Runner
Running With A Dog Is Good Lesson
Dogs don’t care about pace or running statistics. It is about enjoyment. Maybe we can learn something from that.
One of my favourite videos is Salomon Running’s Trail Dog. It may have brought a tear or two out of me…
