Canicross training!

We are happy to announce new CaniCross Training sessions for 2022!

In collaboration with Canicross Greece we aim for the spread and endorsement of the specific sport/game throughout Greece, by maintaining our focus on dog welfare.

Canicross is an impressive off-road entertainment activity that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is a combination of cross country running and dog training in the form of a sport. Running with dogs initially emerged due to the need to train sled dogs during snow-free seasons. Nowadays, it has developed into a great opportunity to exercise with your dog which works positively on his socialization, your mutual entertainment / decompression as well as a way to strengthen your relationship. 

Οι προπονήσεις, για την νέα χρονιά, ξεκινούν το Σάββατο 22 Ιανουαρίου 2022 στις 10:00π.μ. Οι ενδιαφερόμενοι μπορούν να ενταχθούν στην ομάδα canicross όποια στιγμή επιθυμούν. Αρχικός στόχος των προπονήσεων είναι η επίτευξη των 5km και στην συνέχεια η σταδιακή αύξηση του. Απευθυνόμαστε σε όσους έχουν το running στην ζωή τους αλλά και σε όσους έφτασε η ώρα να το βάλουν! Σε κάθε περίπτωση δεν απαιτείται η οποιαδήποτε γνώση και εμπειρία στην εκπαίδευση σκύλου, αυτό το αναλαμβάνουμε εμείς με το πλάνο εκμάθησης βασικής υπακοής για το άθλημα (κατευθύνσεις, ταχύτητα, συμπεριφορά στην διάρκεια της προπόνησης, σε κοινόχρηστους χώρους). 

Additionally, we provide the participants with:

  • Access to purchasing specialized Canincross equipment
  • Training covering security and health issues during Canicross practice
