  2. 2. Running Playing and running outdoors are a couple ways that dogs love to spend their time. A great way to motivate yourself while bonding with your pup is to include them in your running routines. If you’re interested in including your dog in your morning or evening running routine? Check out these essential tips for running with fido:
  3. 3. 1. Check with your Vet If you’re not sure whether your dog is healthy enough to run, check with your vet first. Professionals will let you know if there are any health concerns and can provide you with advice about what exercises are safe for your pup. Your dog may be healthy, but it’s still best to seek the advice of a vet because they may recommend dietary plans to compliments your exercise routine.
  4. 4. 2. Start them at the right age If you have a young puppy, it might be best to avoid running off the bat. Running on hard surfaces can damage joints and bones that aren’t yet fully formed. Experts state that a young dog’s growth plates–cartilage near the ends of bones–don’t start closing until 8–12 months, but it varies depending on breed. 
  5. 5. 3. Warm up and Start Slow Before starting your run, make sure you warm up with your pet. Give Buddy and yourself a few minutes to walk or jog slowly. It’s essential to warm up muscles to protect against injuries. Combining intervals of walking and jogging, this plan helps you and your dog recover and catch your breath.
  6. 6. 4. Watch their paws! Keep in mind where you run with your dog. A hot blacktop, icy path, or surface where there may be road debris or glass can cause paw injuries. Be mindful if your dog starts to limp or lick its feed. Before and after running, inspect your dog’s pad for cuts or bruises. Make sure to take breaks to check if your dog is ok.
  7. 7. 5. Get the proper gear Purchase a 4 to 6-foot leash for your dog. Longer leashes can be troublesome when jogging. Your dog’s nose should be parallel to you knee and your arms, straight down at your side, holding the leash right near the collar. This helps them get used to the pace. During this essential teaching stage, it’s helpful to keep this position during walking. 
  8. 8. In Conclusion It’s important to make your run enjoyable for both owner and pet. Taking the necessary precautions to make sure your dog is healthy and safe during walking or jogging can make your time together easy. Once they’ve mastered the art of running on a leash, your pup may be excited and willing to run with you! In the long run, running with your dog can help both of you keep excess weight off and stimulate your health for the better.
