    Confidence and Canicross with Inein Victor Garrick

    Canicross is for everyone and everydog, however sometimes taking those first steps in the sport is the hardest part. There could be lots of reasons stopping you and having the confidence to try can open the doors to a wonderful sport and fun with your dog.

    In this episode we are joined by Inein Victor Garrick, who is also one of our DogFit Ambassadors. On social media he is known as @vikto_garik_runs, and together with his dog Zuko aka Firelord, they regularly Canicross and race together.

    We’re interested to hear about their journey, as Inein only started running as an adult and went from a fear of dogs, to now owning two! We chat with Inein about his tips for helping with confidence on the start line at events and his approach to racing.

    Too hot to trot? Can you Canicross in warm weather?

    Too hot to trot? Can you Canicross in warm weather?

    As Canicrossers, the health and wellbeing of our dogs is our main priority. We love getting out there and running whenever we can, whatever the weather. However, when the weather warms up, how hot is too hot?

    This is a question we are often asked, especially by people who are new to the sport. Our guests in this interview are canine researcher, Anne Carter, and small animal vet, Emily Hall from Hotdogs - heatstroke education for dog owners. You can find out more on their website,: www.heatstroke.dog whey they share their research into canine heatstroke and other heat-related disorders.

    More about our guests:

    Emily Hall MA VetMB PGCAP SFHEA MRSB MRCVS

    Emily qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2007 then spent seven years working in small animal primary care veterinary practice. In 2014 she made the leap into teaching, starting at a further education college in the Midlands teaching animal health and welfare. In 2015 after moving to Nottingham Trent University to teach student veterinary nurses, and in 2021 joined the LIVE team at the Royal Veterinary College teaching veterinary education.

    Emily is passionate about animal welfare and strongly believes we can do more to prevent many diseases and much suffering. She is currently researching canine heatstroke, particularly exertional heatstroke – heatstroke caused by exercise rather than confinement in a hot space like a car.



    Anne Carter BSc (Hons) MSc PhD PGCEP SFHEA MRSB

    Anne has a real interest in applied research-things that make a difference in the real world. After she completed a PhD in canine behaviour and welfare in 2011, Anne moved to Nottingham Trent University in 2012 to continue my passion for all things research and all things dog. She has been a Canicrosser for about 8 years and inevitably her research and recreation have begun to overlap. One of Anne's dogs really struggles in the heat, and as a winter sport, she started to question the effects of unseasonably warm weather on dogs competing in Canicross.

    Can Gundogs Canicross?

    Can Gundogs Canicross?

    One of the common questions we get asked is, 'Can any dog breed Canicross and are there some that are better than others’. Our answer is always yes, however we do find that there is one particular dog group that we know takes to the sport really well.

    The gundog group make popular family pets and are known as reliable and loving companions. However they are very active and can get easily bored if they are under-excercised and not using their heads. From Spaniels to Pointers, Viszlas to Labradors we’ve enjoyed introducing them and their owners to Canicross.

    We are joined today by Michelle Oseman, professional Gundog Trainer and expert handler. Having gained many Field and Trail Test awards running her spaniels in the shooting field, Michelle is now enjoying running with her dogs and Canicrossing. We are keen to learn more and understand how these two can work together.
