Get Lost in Canine Biathlon

Canine Biathlon – S2:E5

Get lost in the endurance sport of Canine Biathlon by explaining how it works, what gear you need, and where you can go to get lost racing it.

What the heck is Canine Biathlon?

The name is a bit misleading.

No, you don’t ski and shoot dogs.

Think of canine biathlon as a backyard obstacle course race mixed with a trail run that you do with your dog.

Trail running and obstacle course racing – this is where the BI part comes in biathlon.

It’s the K9 part that adds an extra special element to this event.

Who’s doesn’t want to race with their dog?

However, this event has more to it than just bonding with your canine.

They are active duty dog handlers and military veterans dealing with combat tours.

They are federal law enforcement and local police k9 officers who use dogs in all sorts of high-stress environments.

And they are dog lovers and trainers that enjoy the challenge of racing next to their best friend.

It is an endurance sport like no other where winning or losing has everything to do with how fast your human is at obstacle racing.

And that is the endurance sport of Canine Biathlon.

Time for you to start training… it’s ok… your dog will wait for you!
