What is Cani-Cross?
Cani-Cross is cross country running with your dog. The idea is that a dog forms a part of a team, working in harness with its human that navigates from behind using specific commands while running at speed. Cani-Cross is a great accompanying or alternative dog sport to Bikejoring and Scootering - all of which require dogs to be trained and worked in harness.
Canine sports are a great way to bond humans with their dogs, offering physical fitness as well as mental stimulation for our two and four legged runners. Cani-Cross can be a great starting point for novice sled dog runners while you find your feet in training and working your dog, as well as a all round fun sport.
Dogs sports are open to ALL BREEDS and abilities - for more information on how to get involved, to learn more about dog sports or to book onto a course with an experienced sled dog trainer Cani-Fit.com or view the Beginners Guide to Cani-Cross
Please note that it is advise that dogs are at least 12 - 18 months old before starting light training for working in harness making sure their bones are fully formed before working at long distance. The physical fitness of your dog should be taken into consideration ensuring joints and bones aren't overworked. Always seek veterinary advice if unsure.
See you all there!
