Want to go kicksledding with your dog?
Easy to pull, the kicksled can be your faithful companion's best friend. No need to have a specially trained dog to practice this activity. A kicksled can be pulled by one or two dogs.
This sport is ideal for expending your dog's energy, keeping him in shape and finally seeing him sleep soundly :) The "musher" will also sleep well because kicksledding with a dog is a team sport that requires human and animal collaboration in efforts.
Many dogs understand right away that the goal of the game is to run while pulling the kicksled, but others will need a basic lesson from a trainer who specializes in this activity. Once the dog and its owner have each understood their role and the bond has been established, they just want one thing: a long winter!
To have better sliding quality, it is preferable to practice this sport on groomed trails. During difficult passages or if your dog is not at the top of his form, help him by propelling the kicksled with one foot as if you were kicksledding without a dog.
We have 3 types of kicksleds:
