Canicross is a great year-round activity you can enjoy with your dog for walking, Nordic walking, hiking, running or snowshoeing! Plus if you are a cyclist, cross-country skier or want to get into kick sledding, consider canicross as dry land training for both you & your pooch to ensure you are both fit enough and trained in the necessary commands to enjoy your desired activities. Our Intro to Canicross package includes your choice of a complete 1 dog cani-cross or skijor system both of which includes respective line, bungee, belt and dog harness plus two private training sessions, typically completed over a 2-3 week period. Training only packages with/without rental equipment is also available.
Once you have completed the training sessions it is all about getting out and practicing with your dog until you are confident they have learned all of the necessary cues, before you proceed to skijoring, bikejoring or kick sledding. Pooch Partners does not believe it is safe to offer direct training to skijoring, bikejoring or kick sledding as you have less control of your dog and they do not know any of the necessary cues, so canicross is our recommended prerequisite before you attempt the other sports with your dog on your own.
If you are interested in group training and getting our weekly with other canicrossers, be sure to check out our Canicross Canada group option.
