Canicross workshops

Pawsitive Fitness will be holding a number of canicross workshops throughout Ireland during 2023.

So far, we can confirm the following locations:

- Galway city, 7th May

We're also finalising details for workshops in Carlow and Kerry.


~ What is canicross. We will talk about the basics of canicross and why it is so much more fun than regular 'running with your dog'

~ Equipment. The right equipment needed for canicross and why we use it. We will also get you and your dog kitted out in all the right gear for the class.

~ Technique. We will discuss running technique with a dog, how to teach commands and how to get your dog running out in front.

~ Practical work. Here, we will hit the trails and work on our technique with the dogs.

~ We will also talk a little about stuff like hydration and exercises that will keep your dog strong for the trails as well as doing a few human exercises too

Equipment will be available to purchase at the workshop and everyone attending will get a 10% discount on all equipment too.

*Please note that dogs must be a minimum of 9 months to attend, although it is recommended that large breeds be a minimum of 12 months
