Running with your dog can give you an added sense of security. They are very aware of their surroundings, can warn you of other people/dogs on the trail, and bark if threatened.
A dog is the most dependable and motivated running partner you will ever find. Their tail will wag at the mere mention of a R-U-N.
Not only does running help you get fit, it will help control your dog’s weight, muscle tone, cardiovascular health, and endurance.
Running is also good for a dog’s mental health. Allowing a dog to get outside to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of nature will make your dog happy.
Some dogs have an overwhelming amount of energy. Running a dog on a regular basis helps release energy that would more than likely otherwise be vented on your furniture, carpet, or innocent chew toys.
