Dog Trainer Northern Ireland

Dog Trails NI is a locally based fitness class for you and your dog to help you to get fitter, faster and stronger while giving your furry friend a great mental and physical workout.

Dog Trails NI is working to promote Cani-sports across Northern Ireland. Dog trails NI specialises in canicross, using the best and most interesting trails across the north to deliver fun, exciting and motivating fitness classes that will certainly work up a sweat!

Dog Training

Not only are our canicross classes a physical workout for you and your dog, but they are a mental workout for your dog too.  We have had many owners come to us looking for help with very high energy dogs, or those with behaviour or socialisation issues.  Canicross can form an ideal part of your ongoing dog training by providing a physical and mental workout that allows you to work as a team with your dog.  Our class members find that after a good canicross run, many behaviours become more manageable as your dog is pooped!

Giving dogs a physical workout, and a job to do through canicross is an ideal form of dog training, alongside other methods, and to top it off, you get fitter too, it’s a win win!

Our Classes Across Northern Ireland

Our hour long classes  combine running fitness with your dog along with a bit of human only fun fitness towards the end of the session. A typical class consists of:

  • Gentle run in to get dogs and humans warmed up.
  • Skills work, such as training directional commands.
  • Team training with your dog.
  • Human strength training, involving team games and strength exercises.

Our goal is to make each class exciting, fun, and to leave you and your dog feeling tired and happy. This means mixing up our classes with varying activities.  Our classes are tailored in such a way to include beginner or advanced fitness levels.
