Cani rando (hiking with dogs)


Cani rando Vallée du Louron

We tend to relate these kinds of dogs to winter activities, but the truth is that they have always accompanied men through all the seasons of the year carrying out varied tasks. In fact, northern nomadic tribes (Indian, Inuits) used them to go everywhere.

Moving from one place to another was vital for hunter-gatherer tribes. Far from the snow, the dogs carried heavy burdens.

Cani rando, balade en sulky  pour les enfants Thierry CHA, musher and founder of the dog sleigh driving school SHERPA (located in Vallée du Louron), has kept on modernizing this discipline: cani rando. Each person has a wide belt tied to his waist and linked to the harness of the dog that will help the person walk.

You will have a nice walk with these dogs that easily become attached to the person they walk with. Great fun guaranteed for children.

Cani rando is for children over the age of 8. However, little kids can follow the rest on a “sulky”.

Authentic and 100% eco-friendly mean to enjoy the magnificent landscapes of Vallée du Louron close to Peyragudes.
