When is it too hot to run? Skills training for the warm weather Summer 2019

Summer has arrived at last which means watching the temperature before risking a run with your dog.

Not sure when too hot really is too hot? Check out this interview with Dr Anne Carter and Emily Hall MRCVS who are leading research into how dogs cope with the heat.

But we can make the most of the “off” season by sharpening up the essential cani cross skills of passing other teams descending without death and going the correct side of the tree!

Meet the new three week intensive courses dedicated to canicross skills.

Each class has a maximum of two teams with one instructor.

Each week you concentrate on a Key skill then practice JUST that for the week.

Building skills in layers is more effective for humans and dogs alike!


**all classes take place at Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Murton**
