Did You Know?
It’s just as important to build up your dogs fitness for Canicross as it is your own. Here’s why:

Dogs naturally run in short sharp bursts in their normal day to day lives. They need to be learn to run at a consistent set pace with their owner safely.

Building up your dogs running too quickly or not warming up your dog properly before running can cause injury, even if you think they are super active and energetic already!

Running your dog Canicross style in harness is very different on a dogs body than it is running off-lead. It’s important to condition your dog to running in harness gradually.
