Free Training Plans
If you're new to CaniCross or looking to improve, we've got you covered with our FREE 5k training plans. These plans are designed specifically for CaniCross - taking into consideration both human and canine physiology. The plans will build up your training gradually and safely so both your bodies have time to adapt.
They also take into consideration canine psychology to encourage your dog to pull into harness more consistently over a 5k distance. We hope you have fun out on the trails and remember to make CaniCrossing fun and rewarding for your dog. Always reward your dog with verbal praise and attention at he end of a run so it's a positive experience for them.
If you need help on how to encourage your dog to pull into harness, fitting a harness and more, please take a look at our CaniCross page>
Beginner CaniCross Plan
If you are new to running or starting up running again after a break and your dog is new to CaniCross, then this 5k plan is for you!
This 12 week plan will guide you on how to start CaniCross in a safe way so you and your dog’s bodies can gradually adapt to this new form of exercise.
Intermediate CaniCross Plan
If you can run 5k already and your dog is used to exercise and maybe has done some CaniCross before - then this plan is for you!
This plan is also ideal for dogs that are used to CaniCrossing regularly but could improve on working in harness over 5k or for people looking to improve their running speed.

Canine Warm Up & Cool Down
As with humans, it’s really important to warm up your dog before exercising through dynamic warm up and gentle massage which helps to increase blood flow to the muscles, reducing the risk of injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
It also mentally prepares your dog for the exercise ahead and differentiates this outing from the usual stroll in the park.
