But before you head out, make sure your furry friend is properly outfitted for the adventure. You're not the only one who needs the right trail running gear; so does Fido. Here's some of the best canine gear and accessories for the trails.
Kurgo Baxter Pack$50 1 of 10
This lightweight pack is a great accessory on longer runs. Slip a collapsible water bowl, poop bags or treats in one of the two side compartments and your dog will be ready to run. With eight adjustment points and an ergonomic padded spine support, it'll remain comfortable during a wide range of activities.
Stunt Puppy Stunt Runner$38 2 of 10
This hands-free, adjustable and lightweight leash is a must-have for running with your dog. Comprised of a waist belt and flexible connector to tether you and your dog together, Fido has some leeway to sniff around and explore while running by your side. You may never walk or run again with another leash.

Kurgo Allagash Hammock$90 4 of 10
The heavy-duty Allagash Hammock protects your car seat from a muddy dog after a long day out on the trails. Inspired by whitewater rafting gear, the hammock is made with a durable and waterproof Hydraweave material. With six attachment spots, it'll stay put even if you have an active canine traveler.
