Walking and running are some of the easiest activities to do with your dog. It’s good for your health and the health of your dog, and running together will also strengthen that special human/canine relationship. What’s more, a tired dog is an obedient dog. Just like humans, dogs need daily exercise for their health and happiness.
And again, just like humans, American pets have a pudge problem: an estimated 52% of dogs are overweight or obese. Walking. Running with your dog is a fun way to spend time together and helps keep both of you in tip-top shape. Plus, having a running buddy can be an important source of motivation. With the weather cooling, if you have been thinking about start running with your dog, this is a good time to introduce it.
Extreme heat is generally not an issue when the weather is cool and running can be very pleasant for both of you. Running is a great way to work off the energy of a high energy dog. Be sure to consult a veterinarian before you hit the trails with your pup.
The starting age varies among breeds and sizes, and it is generally recommended that a dog not begin a strenuous activity like running until they are at least six or seven months old. For some breeds, it may fall into the one or two-year-old range. Before you start running, you should talk to your vet and get a “green light”. Just to be on the safe side, do a regular check-up and make sure your dog is ready to go.
Dogs can’t express themselves in the same way we can, so this is your way of making sure. Walking with a younger dog will help build a strong base for a future running program. For dogs that are 18 months or older, start the same way you would. If your dog is new to running, don’t set out for a 5-mile run.
Start slow and build your mileage together. Start with a hands free leash, such as The Buddy System, or with a regular 4-6 foot leash that you hold by keeping your bent arms at your side in a normal running stance rather than extending your arms out. Bring a portion of your dog’s regular meal or small treats which you can carry in easily accessible pockets or a treat pouch. According to veterinarian Tim Hackett of Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital, seven months is the absolute earliest age at which to start a dog with running, but one year is recommended.
Keep in mind that the larger the breed of dog, the longer it. Before you begin running with your dog you should make sure that they’re capable of the exercise, they don’t have any pre-existing health problems which running might exacerbate, and that they only run for as long as their stamina naturally allows. Start with a short, 10-minute run somewhere familiar for your dog.
