WHAT IS POILS ET HALTÈRES?
Poils et Haltères program offers a fun and innovative boot camp, where people work out outdoors, in a group, accompanied by their faithful four-legged friends, and that, all year round! This allows both species to gain the benefits of moving in nature, these benefits manifesting both physically and mentally.
This training program allows people (and dogs!) to work on their endurance, strength, and muscle tone, as well as improve their cardiovascular capacity. In addition, this program reinforces the dog's obedience skills since dogs actively participate during the sessions.

POILS ET HALTÈRES?
TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE
Nowadays, many dog owners struggle to find time to walk their dog AND find time to train, so the Poils et Haltères program allows its participants not to have to choose between their physical health and that of their dog or having to leave the dog at home if the owner goes out for a work out. Poils et Haltères offers the opportunity to optimize time management while strengthening the bond between owner and dog.
VITALITY AND FUN
Poils et Haltères is a dynamic and motivating physical activity, allowing you to put life's little worries on hold and recharge your batteries thanks to the benefits of being in nature; Breathe fresh air, fill up on vitamin D, while being surrounded by positive, motivated people AND happy dogs! The dogs bring a zootherapeutic effect to the equation, as well as a fun side to training!
Poils et Haltères aims to make sure that outdoor physical activity has its place in everyday life, to bring people to have fun, and to be motivated to work out with the help of dogs. In addition, the training sessions are often presented in the form of games, which allows participants to keep a young heart!

I recommend these "boot camps" with enthusiasm
I always used the excuse that I didn't want to leave my dogs at home any longer than I needed to during the day to not go work out.
Well now, I no longer have an excuse. Poils et Halteres is an amazing way to get out with your dog and get back in shape.
They support everyone and allow us to go at our own pace. Couldn't be happier that this new business is in Gatineau!
Nancy and Gwennie, you taught me to love taking care of myself in a very special way. In the presence of beautiful nature, my faithful companion and all of you, I take care of my body with physical and mental exercises that our passionate Nancy took care to prepare. Thank you to all of you!
