  • Canicross – the sport of champions! Is it for you?  Here’s what you need to know to get started!

    Canicross is cross-country running with your dog.  It is a popular sport in Europe and the U.K.  It was originally intended to provide sledding dogs with summer exercise and training but has turned into a global sport with world championship titles.  Canicross is a very unique sport.  Instead of just running with your dog, you run with your dog tethered to you by a special bungee type leash and harness that allows them to get full range of motion in their shoulders. The idea is that instead of pulling a sled, your dog pulls you. It is a great sport for those that love running, trails, and the great outdoors.
