Join Dog Trails NI

If you are looking for a Dog Walker near Belfast then maybe you need high stimulation for your dog?  We run fitness classes 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.  Our classes are tailored to all fitness levels.

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!

The Class

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.

The vision of our classes is to create a Dog Trails NI canicross family, through our love of our dogs, whilst keeping ourselves and our pooches fit and healthy through intelligent exercise.

What To Bring

Make sure you wear comfortable clothing that you can run in. Trainers, particularly trail running shoes are the best footwear for muddy and grassy trails. Please do not wear wellies or walking boots. It is always a good idea to bring a change of clothes, the trails can get muddy in winter! For your dog, make sure to bring fresh water and a biscuit for the end of class to say well done. An old towel is also useful to give them a dry after muddy wet classes.
