A friendly group of Canicrossers, Brutaleers, Trail Runners and Bikejorers (off road biking with their dogs) etc. who are spreading the word about the fun of running (and occasional walks) with your dog no matter what your ability! It's about getting out, getting fresh air and bonding with the furry four legs that share our lives ....and making new friends of course :-) The group is for all people interested in the sport of Canicross (running with dogs) in the South Downs, West Sussex, Hampshire, South Coast, Manhood Peninsula and the surrounding area.
It is about sharing knowledge and having fun and getting together for the occasional run at various times of the day or week. Please feel free to invite others to the group, create events, share your experiences and ask questions. And MOST importantly, have fun! You don't have to be super fit or mega quick to join, just have an interest in running with your furry buddy and the desire to run with other like minded people and pups. All are welcome, whether you race regularly in dog specific events, take part in organised people trail races, run for fun or would like to find out more about getting yourself and your canine partner fit. Social runs organised in various locations. If you don't see one near you - shout - there may be others nearby who would like to meet up :)
If you love dogs but don't have one do feel free to join us :-)

Is your dog home alone for the majority of the day?
Do you have a high energy dog who is still full of beans after a walk - even if you're tired out?
Would your dog benefit from being slimmer and fitter?
Yes? Then perhaps K9 Fitness is the perfect solution for your dog!
Dogs who are left alone for much of the day can develop behavioural issues due to physical and psychological frustration. By letting us run, cycle or walk with your dog you will be giving him/her the exercise he/she deserves and then some!
Your dog will get more than just a trot around the local park. He/she will be getting out and about on beaches, in woods and up & down hills so even if they're walking, they will still be increasing their fitness levels.
Dogs crave company so he/she will be getting the opportunity to exercise and socialise which means you will come home to a happy and healthy dog.
Canicross, Bikejor, Scootering, Mushing etc. are a great way to exercise your dogs, meet new people and learn new skills. If you are interested in finding out more please ask.
Please note: Dogs need to be over 10-11 months to Canicross and over 18 months to Bike/Scoot.
We cover Bracklesham Bay, The Witterings, Birdham, Itchenor, Sidlesham, Almodington, Earnley, Donington, Chichester, Dell Quay, Selsey, Runcton, Mundham, Bognor Regis, Felpham, Middleton and surrounding areas.
We also offer day care, let outs, puppy visits, feeding and can feed other pets too :-)
