International DogFit® Canicross Trainer - South Africa

South Africa - Vicki Hudson

Vicki is offering canicross classes in the Western Cape along with Brin and Jamie, her companions and conservation detection dogs, where they also work in nature conservation preserving critically endangered species.

Although she has trained and competed at various levels in dog sports of many kinds in South Africa for more than 20 years, competed overseas (and coming home with a bronze medal) and now has working dogs, Vicki discovered and got hooked (literally) on canicross more recently. 

She desperately needed a way to keep fit together with her dogs as she was always focusing on them but less so on herself. Canicross provided the perfect solution – except at the time she was an experienced hiker, not a runner. W

With perseverance, guidance and the right equipment from DogFit, they are now canicross addicts and ready to show others how much fun and benefit one can get from this activity.

Parkrun is their weekly highlight where they can run together, get rid of the week’s stress and check in with friends. 


Combined with her various other qualifications (Veterinary Nurse, Certified Canine Athlete Specialist, Search Dog Diploma) Vicki now has a new skill to offer anyone who is interested in the Western Cape, South Africa. It’s a really easy and healthy exercise for both humans and dogs which builds a unique kind of bond between the two!
