Canicross Coaching

Allow me to be your guide to the exhilarating world of canicross.

For those who haven't heard, canicross is the ultimate adventure sport where you and your canine companion team up to tackle the trails together. It's more than just running with your dog; it's about building a deeper bond, pushing your limits, and experiencing the pure joy of running with your best friend. If running is not quite right for you, canihiking offers most of the same benefits.

Some of the many benefits of canicross/canihiking include:

  • Double the Fun: Enjoy the outdoors with your canine companion by your side, experiencing the joy of running together.

  • Fitness Boost: Elevate your own workout routine and your dog's energy levels with a shared physical activity.

  • Bonding Buddies: Strengthen the connection with your dog through teamwork and shared adventures.

  • Stress Buster: Release endorphins for both you and your dog, reducing stress and improving overall well-being.

  • Mental Stimulation: Keep your dog's mind engaged with the challenges and excitement of canicross.

  • Natural Energy Outlet: Provide a healthy way for your dog to burn off their boundless energy and combat boredom.

  • Improved Communication: Develop deeper understanding and communication with your dog through physical cues and vocal commands.

  • Community Connection: Join a welcoming and supportive community of dog lovers who share your passion for canicross.

  • Outdoor Exploration: Discover new trails and scenic landscapes on your adventures with your furry friend.

  • Tail Wagging Wins: Witness the pure joy and enthusiasm of your dog as they experience the thrill of canicross.

But where do you start? That's where I come in! With over 7 years of experience, I'm passionate about helping dogs, and their humans of all fitness levels discover the magic of this incredible sport.

Whether you're a seasoned runner with an eager pup or a complete beginner looking for a new way to bond with your furry friend, I've got your back (or should I say, paw?) I offer a range of programs tailored to your needs, including:

  • Beginner Bootcamp: Learn the basics of canicross gear, proper running technique, and essential commands for safe and enjoyable runs.

  • Trail Taming: Take your training to the next level with guided runs on varied terrain, building confidence and endurance for both you and your dog.

  • Race Ready: Elevate your game and prepare for competitions with targeted training plans and race day strategies.

  • Puppy Playtime: Introduce your little furball to the joys of canicross with fun, positive reinforcement games and exercises.

No matter your goals, I'll be with you every step (or stride) of the way. I'll provide:

  • Expert guidance: I'll answer all your questions and ensure you're using safe and effective training methods.

  • Personalized coaching: I'll tailor your program to your individual needs and goals, keeping things fun and challenging.
