Below is a list of training groups, if there is not one in your area do contact us and we will help put you in touch with local canicrossers or why not start your own group its as easy as “I’m going for a run who wants to come to?”
Your dog must be healthy and fully mature, at least a year old, dependent on breed even older, if in doubt check with your vet. Children are welcome at most groups, as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Ideally children should be aged 10+ years old before starting, but our races do allow 7 year old’s accompanied by an adult to race.
IMost groups are organised through facebook groups if you are not on facebook contact Karen on: firstname.lastname@example.org and she will put you in touch with your local contact person.
Our Canisports-Scotland facebook page for general information ask a question on there and loads of folk all over the UK will be happy to help.
