Some breeds of dog are more suited to Canicross than others, with some preferring the faster paced short distances and others favouring long steady paced runs.
Canicross is a great way of keeping both yourself and your dog fit and healthy whilst being able to get out and about in the outdoors. Not only does it increase physical fitness it develops the bond with your dog and enables them to build up their confidence and become more apt at receiving and following through with commands. Canicross isn’t deemed to be a particularly high risk sport but having personal protection in place before going on a run is highly advised in order to cover yourself against should an unwanted accident or injury occur.
