    Yes, and I bought a canicross belt and lead as recommended on here by @JoanneF, but it was for a different reason. I'm not fit enough for canicross :D

    Yes, there is a group near here who had posters up in one of our forestry commission walking routes, advertising introductory sessions. Not my thing though!

    Oh wow - sounds good! I do enjoy running and Dennis really enjoys it to. It's just his body doesn't feel the same way anymore, so he can't come with me now :(

    Hi, maybe take a look at Facebook for local canicross groups. From what I've found, it's not all as serious as that photo seems to make out. Basically, it's just a group of people going out for a jog with their dogs.... :)

    The local group to me (Basingstoke) are pretty friendly so I would assume most wouldn't mind if you went for a jog with them anyway :) . Why not ask; "mad dog lady wants to have a go at canicross, mind if I tag along" - or something like that :) :)
