Initiate yourself to dog hiking in summer and winter!

 

The origin of Cani Randonnée

Practised by the nomadic tribes of the Far North during the summer, it developed in Sweden, then in France as a leisure activity. It is both an alternative to sledding during periods when there is a lack of snow and a way of keeping dogs in shape, as they need to move all year round.

 

The principle

It is a walking tour where you are helped by a dog. A cushioned lanyard connects the dog and the hiker. The hiker is equipped with a padded belt or harness to cushion the jolts. Everything is done by voice and the walker never pulls on the lanyard. "Oh", "slow", "right", "left"..., commands guide the dog during the walk.

 

The benefits

The benefits are the same as those of hiking, but the climb up the hill is made easier by the animal. Children learn patience and respect for the dog. This activity is strongly recommended for adults and children with hyperactive tendencies. The animal helps to find peace and to refocus on oneself.

 

A photo break is planned during the activity. The outing ends with a time of exchange on the feelings of the participants as well as a last moment of tenderness with the dogs.
