2011 Canicross Hike Dates Announced!
We've just added our 2011 Canicross Hike schedule to our website. Click here for details. Our group has had so much fun over the years and we're always looking for more adventurous human/dog teams to join us. If you'd like to give this a try, just bring yourself and your dog and we'll outfit you for the day. Your dog needs to have an adult weight of over 30lbs to participate and be relatively dog friendly and absolutely people friendly.
We hike. We don't run. You get to take advantage of your dog pulling you up the hills! And the best thing is; they are supposed to be pulling so praise them for something they probably do naturally in the first place. And yes, you can train a dog to pull and you can train a dog to heal and they will not be confused. They are two very different commands with different expectations. A dog pulls from the back of a harness and not from the collar. A dog heals when attached to a leash by the collar and not by the back of a harness.
Contact us for details or with any questions you may have. Try something new this year! Come out and hike with us!
