Canicross Training


What Is Canicross?

Canicross is the sport of trail running with your dog using specially designed equipment allowing the dog and owner to run together as a team.


Taking part in Canicross offers a fun, social and highly effective way for you and your dog to keep fit together. The specially designed equipment ensures safe, comfortable and efficient running for the both of you. Take advantage of a wealth of experience and knowledge from a Certified Canicross Trainer, qualified Run Leader and Co-Founder & Head Canicross Instructor of the Sporty Paws Canicross Instructor Course.
