Skatejoring - trend sport for both dog and owner

Dog Joring Skatejoring
Skatejoring - trend sport for both dog and owner. The sports that you can actively engage with your dog you can count on the fingers of one hand. In addition to running, cycling and conventional (mountain) walks there is hardly any sport so challenging the energy of the four-legged confidante as the modern Skatejor. Sporting skates challenge you, and demand a good amount of energy from your dog.

How does Skatejoring work?

For Skatejoring you need your nordic skates, tension poles and a harness for your dog in front of the skates. Visually nordic skating is similar to skijoring. Skikes are a modern fun sport device ideal for rough, mountainous terrain. Thanks to pneumatic tires skikes can be used on almost any terrain.

The possible driving styles at skate joring range from downhill driving to skate X tournaments, to freestyle and kiteboarding. With this type of joring you can involve your dog, using a suitable sports harness and tug with shock absorber to let your dog pull you.

In the field test - Models like the V7 FIX skike cross or skike v07 PLUS, sporting all-round equipment in the field of skatejorings, are quite ideal to have four-legged companion pull you around. Whether in skating, downhill, whether beginner or advanced, the high stability of the devices and the guaranteed security are essential for perfect riding comfort. The models not only meet the current safety regulations, but they are also comfortable. The skikes variable leg adjustment simplifies handling and makes trips even safer, since its user stands simply perfect in his shoe. The patented skikes brakes are of course used in both - skike V7 FIX Cross and skike v07 PLUS. These have a braking effect of 6 m/sec and therefore are indispensable for downhill skating.

How to use it with your four-legged friend?

In addition to your skates you of course need the right harness to tether your companion to you. Harness and tug should be arranged not to put too much pressure on the chest of the dog, also to distribute the strain as much as possible about the dog's body. Harnesses from traditional pet stores are completely useless. Tip: Especially during the first few rides with your four-legged friend do not allow the leash to slack at any time.

Of course the first attempts may not necessarily be a great success. Allow yourself and your dog some time to learn the ins and outs of the new trend sport. Choose simple forest trails for your first few rides and above all take it easy. Your dog should beforehand know the appropriate commands. Pull or run, walk, stand and quick should already be present in the "language" of your dog.
