Found this poster on Wikipedia and thought it may be of interest. It gives a detailed description of a team of dogs and their place within the team. The strongest dogs are the Wheel dogs. The Team dogs provide the power and energy. The Swing dogs help guide the team around corners, and the Lead dogs respond to the Mushers' verbal commands and find and stay on the trail. The same rules apply to dry land mushing.
We are delighted to announce that we now have eleven groups registered on the website. This gives us a fantastic visual on where these groups are located in the UK. Welcome aboard everyone and lets keep the map growing.
We have four new groups on the CaniRun Map, linking the West Coast of Scotland to the East Coast of Scotland. This should give Canicrossers and Bikejor enthusiasts some variety in terrain to choose from. These groups are fast filling up and attracting lots of interest.
Keep up the great work and lets get more Groups on the CaniRun Directory Map.
A 5km Canicross race held on the outskirts of Glasgow, at Mugdock Country Park. A stunning venue situated close to the Campsie Hills and on route to the famous West Highland Way. Take a look at my video footage of the actual race and get a flavour of what its like to compete against other athletes in the exciting sport of Canicross, Running with Dogs.
