running

  1. Conditioning
    My dog and I are big runners. We usually shoot for 40 miles/week. This includes hill workouts. I encourage her to jump up and down walls on command while we run. (She does her ups and downs perfectly on command) I was wondering what other ways people condition their dogs. We're both up for anything.

    I am a marathoner, and, with quite a bit of training and working up to longer distances, my ~2 y.o. is now my running partner! While I do love running with her, I live in the midwest, so running in the winter isn't always feasible (It is currently -2 degrees F). We normally shoot for 40...

    Good afternoon! We just rescued a 3-4 year old Pittie... He is our first dog. He is a doll, affectionate and loving. Licks a lot, we can deal with that. One issue we have is that he goes nuts and just starts running around like a mad dog. On the furniture, over the coffee table, etc. Is...

This is just a quick video from day one, he enjoys pulling and also just likes to run next to me. Gets lots of attention from the neighbors lol a great new way to keep...

    I've taken my dog out today to see if his strange bounce on his two front legs disappears after running fast. The answer is no, it doesn't. Somebody suggested that I run him fast to see if he stops bouncing on his front feet at the same time, but he just ended up coughing and gagging. It was the...

    As some of you know my dog is still a pup, seven months. He is full of energy! lol. I want to build muscle and keep him healthy but everywhere I read says that you shouldn't run or exercise a dog until they are a year old because their bones are still growing and it can cause damage. True? I...

    Well I'm getting back into training and have decided to bring my dog along with me. I figure I'm going to start him out slow. Today (his first day with me) we only ran .5 miles. My plan is to do that with him for about a week then step it up in small increments. I'm running every day as long as...

    Alrighty so I've come to the conclusion that my dogs need more exercise ( apparently fetch, tug, springpole/tire thing I made & walks aren't enough), but they don't turn 1 until november and there isn't much grass around here to run them on. I carpeted some of our backyard since its mostly...

    Hey all, I'm looking for some advice on how to get my dog running. Yesterday, I took her out for her usual after work walk and decided to try running with her for a bit. As soon as I started going faster, she realized what was going on and started taking off. We wound up running for a few...

    I tool my dog Toby for his weekly park and lake time, and noticed after I got home that he had a mild limp on his front paw. I looked up online and checked everything I read to check, all joint points and checked for cuts in the webbing of his paw and also checked the paw itself for cuts, but...
  17. Conditioning
    He's 3 months old now. Or just about anyways. Was wondering at what age I can start bringing him on long walks? 40 minutes each. Morning and Evening. Then upgrade him to jogs / runs. I'd like him to do roughly 5 miles when I do have him join me.

    Hello all, my new routine is when I run my dogs with the bike they wear a weighted harness. I was looking online for different ones and didn’t find any I really liked so off to Tractor Supply I went :) I looked at all the different chain types and weights and such and found one that was lighter...
