Canicross & Mushing
Canicross is a great year-round activity to keep you and your pooch healthy and enjoying the outdoors. Plus it is a great way to prepare for faster moving mushing sports.
Perfect activity for all dogs as they all have an incredible sense of smell. Our training covers everything you need to just enjoy searches at home or to pursue competing.

Why Choose Us?
Pooch Partners has always used positive training methods and we love games-based concept training! How does concept training work? It is really quite simple and a whole lot of fun. Using games and positive reinforcement we teach our dog concepts such as confidence, calmness, disengagement, focus and impulse control, which empowers them to respond appropriately to real life situations. Many of the games also provide your dog with fitness benefits too which is another bonus. Whether you are starting fresh with a new puppy or have a dog with some behaviour issues, concept training can turn any struggle you may be experiencing with your dog into a success!
