My name is louise forde I run Carnie Runs Canicross & Coaching. I am a qualified Canicross coach teaching beginners, improvers and 1-1 sessions in how to run with your dogs safely. Canicross is a fantastic sport that helps to build a bond with your dog whilst also promoting fitness and exercise for you both. I started canicrossing in 2017 with my own lurcher and it really helped get me through some of the hardest times in my life where I had hit a very low point. It’’s helped create a stronger bond between me and my dogs, helped with their reactivity (both are rescue dogs from bad pasts) and provided us with a great way to exercise together and give me some downtime and it’s a fantastic destress. This is why I began teaching others as especially during lockdown i saw so many people trying to combine their fitness and the dogs using in appropriate and hazardous kit and it made me really want to be able to show I could help them and put the dogs welfare at heart. So I’m 2021 I became a certified Canicross coach and then in 2022 I became a fully qualified coach. I am also fully qualified in canine first aid, fully insured for coaching and putting on social runs. I just love seeing the teams I teach learn to Canicross and develop 🥰and have made some life long friends from my classes

Louise is an incredible dog/owner running coach who truly goes above and beyond for every client (4 legs and 2 legs). I can't recommend her strongly enough, and look forward to more weekend runs with Louise and the dogs!

Nicola Forde, August 2023

Carnie runs is a great opportunity for anyone to learn how to canicross with their dog. The amount of knowledge and experience within this business makes you feel at ease and looked after during your time on the course. They even continue to support their clients after the course is complete.
