Without realising it, Beanie and Biggles had been canicrossing pretty much since they started walking. Canicross is canine cross-country hiking or running with the dog attached to it’s handler by a secure harness, bungee line and belt. We’ve always ran and hill walked with them and quickly discovered that it was damn hard work keeping two norky Beagles under control in open countryside. It wasn’t long before we Googled for some kind of hands free lead system…and stumbled across canicross kit.
Eighteen months or so ago we started dabbling more in races and parkruns with the dogs and we started up a little website to try and attract other people to what was a very new sport. That didn’t really go well (races OR website) and it fell by the wayside. Now we’ve got ourselves back on track and have managed to get canicross to fit our ickle Beaglets like a glove. So we’re re-launching our site – it’s going to be a glorious amalgamation of all the things we are passionate about – our gorgeous Beagles, the Scottish countryside, running, hiking, caravaning and photography.
I know lots of Beanie and Biggles pals share their interests so I thought you guys might be interested. We’ve just got a little single page up right now but the full site will be here soon. I hope you all like it!
You’ll find the new website (www.canicross-scotland.co.uk) here:
We’ll still be posting about Beanie and Biggles canicross adventures on FourLeggedPal. This new site is going to be something a bit different…all will become apparent in due course!
