Canicross is running over different terrains and distances with a trained dog. The children have learnt to give the dog commands and use equipment safely. It can be tiring for all involved as we usually run over a mile in total as well as completing sprints with the dog. It's great to learn to get on with other humans as well as cheeky canines!

Joshua and Francesca are enjoying the Canicross club. Joshua in particular has gained lots of confidence. He can now confidently handle the dog and is confident to run and give the dog commands. We have noticed his fitness has also improved. Francesca was already confident and has been a fantastic role model, setting herself running targets and supporting others.
