Canitrekking Intro North Yorkshire

A must have for any dog and owner who are keen outdoor explorers! Canitrekking is the sport of off-road hands-free walking with your dog attached to you using specially designed equipment to make walking safe, secure and comfortable for all involved.

Canitrekking is great for:
- Dogs who aren't great around live stock.
- Reactive/ nervous dogs who can't go off-lead.
- People struggling with aches and pains from your dog pulling.
- Need your hands free for navigating, poo-picking or just to keep your hands toasty!
- Dog & owners looking to start Canicross when their dog is old enough (1 year) but are currently too young and want to get them used to Canicross equipment & commands.
- Dogs who could benefit from increased exercise and mental stimulation.

What to expect?
- Ran by DogFit Certified Canicross Trainers
- An introduction to Canitrekking.
- Cani-Hike equipment fitting for you & your dog.
- Basic commands and techniques.
- A 3 mile scenic walk with the opportunity to trial the different equipment.
