Northern Breed Sports Club
“Northern Breed Sports Club is a canicross/urban dog sledding pet service specializing in working with medium to large high energy breeds in NYC.
We provide a healthy exercise service to keep your canine in tiptop shape and burn off excess energy. We’ll take your dog and turn him/her into a working dog, running anywhere from 2 to 10 miles, and bring you back a tired yet happy dog. A great alternative for dog parks, which can be unpredictable, and more productive than any long walk. We also educate novice dog owners on canine health and nutrition for those actively seeking to participate this fun activity.
So come join us at the Long Island Pet Expo at Tanner Park and try this fun activity! We will have equipment for you and your dog to try together or we’ll have a dog provided for you.”
