K9 Trail Time A-Z of Canicross – F is for Fun

I couldn’t write an A-Z of canicross without emphasising that the main reason for running with your dog should be the fun you will have doing it. I often hear people saying ‘I’m not fast enough’ or ‘I’m not fit enough’ to run with their dog, when the aim should be to get fitter with your dog and maybe get faster as a result (two more ‘F” words for you!). Even racing is generally about the fun you can have whilst taking part in an organised event and most people just enjoy being able to canicross on new trails with a bunch of other like-minded folk. There is also the social aspect for both dogs and humans that gathering canicrossers together can bring, and as I’ve mentioned previously, it’s a safe environment for dogs who might not be so great at being social, to be around other dogs and people from a distance. There is nothing quite like running with your furry pace maker for enjoyment and even when it’s a wet, muddy and miserable day, we always end up having fun canicrossing. So my word associated with the letter ‘F’ has to be fun!

Canicross is the only sport I have actually found even more fun when it's wet and muddy outside
