Canicross Handlers

Jada Amoah

 Jada started Canicross when she was 11 and says, “We went along to watch the first cani-fit experience. I loved it so much that I spent all my pocket money that day and bought full kit to run with Zuka!”

The dogs…

Jada has 3 dogs:

v 6 year old Labradoodle – Zuka

v 5 year old Alaskan Malamute – Zorik

v 22 month old Scandinavian hound - Fuzzy

Cani-Fit

Zorik was still only a puppy when Jada started classes with Cani-Fit and has been there ever since.       

The biggest success…

Jada's most memorable success was competing in the IFSS  European Championships at Thetford Forest November 2016.

She and Fuzzy had only been training together for 4 months and Fuzzy was still very new to the sport at the age of 16 months.

They came home with the silver medal that weekend in the junior female age 14–18 category and Jada was so delighted with what they had achieved.     

Jada remembers lots more successes…
