Have you ever heard about mushing? Despite we have a lack of snow in Australia there is a way how to try this exceptional dog sport. Instead of a sled let your dog be active when pulling your footbike! If you’re looking for a new activity for your vital dog the dog footbiking could be a good choice. Manmat harnesses, lines and collar are designed especially for activities like this making your dog feel comfortable and protect its fur and skin.
Manmat Mushing gear is used by the best mushers in the world. Some Manmat harnesses, lines and other equipment were especially developed to survive the harsh conditions of 1000 mil long Iditarod winter race in Alaska. You have now the opportunity to pamper your furry friend with the same gear. Our lines and harnesses are made from materials that are resistant not only to frost but the heat as well.
Do you love to run with your dog but holding a leash in your hand makes you feel uncomfortable? Special Manmat canicross belts for runners and harnesses and bungee lines will push your running with your dog to completely different dimension. All the equipment is made so that both the runner and the dog are provided by maximum comfort and safety. Harness are made of materials that don’t damage dog’s skin or hair.
Dog trekking is not only an ordinary dog walking. It combines running with walking on long-distance tracks such as 50km or even 100km. Dog hiking and backpacking is an outing where dogs go for a hike with their owners who want to enjoy both the environment and canine companionship. In special Manmat bag packs the dog may also provide some extra haulage capacity. Some dogs can carry up to 30% of their weight.
Manmat products are designed not only for sports with dogs. You can as well only walk your dog in the nearby park using our harnesses, leashes, collar, and other equipment. In our wide range we offer different shaped harnesses and collar to fit both the small dogs e.g. Yorkshire terrier as well as for the big breeds e.g. Huskies or Malamute. You will also appreciate the wide range of colours of our products.
The origins of the Manmat company date back to 1982 when Manmat started with the manufacture of climbing harnesses that were intended mainly for use by friends. In 1992, Manmat started with their main business – the manufacturing of dog sledding harnesses. Manmat has been cooperating with the best Czech and world mushers for more than 20 years. During this period Manmat became the world leader in their field. To improve our products, we always look for new materials and technologies. The main goal is to design and develop products that are gentle to dog’s hair and skin to protect them from any injuries and make them feel comfortable.
Nowadays, our company Manmat belongs to the biggest leading specialists for the manufacture and sale of patented dog harnesses and specialised horse-riding equipment.
