Finally, we're back to spring and ready to go running again. Interested in running with your dog? Here's some of the highlights of a great Jack Rabbit class we went to on how to run with your dog:

Running With Dogs:

It was an evening with dog "runner" Jerry Sticker on how to run with your furry friend and get him to love the miles as much as you do!  We got some amazing tips on how to run with your dogs:

  • Don't run with your dog if it goes over 85-90 degrees
  • Bring water on your run for your dog
  • Don't use a retractable leash
  • Use a short leash (6 ft). It will help you to better control your dog. He's less likely to zig zag on a shorter leash.
  • If your dog likes to stop/sniff/pee a lot when he's outside, make sure to use the leash to guide his attention back to the run
  • If your dog gets distracted by birds, squirrels, etc. when he's outside, make sure to use the leash to guide his attention back to the run
  • If your dog gets easily distracted, bring a favorite ball or toy with you on the run. Use it to regain his attention. At the end of the run let your dog play with the favorite ball or toy
  • If your dog is a beginner runner, make sure to start slowly and work up to longer distances overtime

One of our favorite, award winning, active dog products brands, EzyDog, also has a hands-free running leash for your dog.

The incorporated Zero Shock Technology is the advanced shock absorbing component in the center of the leash that cushions and eases the pressure for both the owner and the dog. It also incorporates reflective trim for night-time safety and the hands-free adjustments make it perfect for running with your dog.

  1. Running with dogs is one of the ultimate energy-burning exercises! Way to go, and great tips! I would definitely NEVER run with a dog on a retractable leash ~ those things are the worst leashes ever. The only usage I got out of it was to practice our pups' recall.

  2. Hi there!

  3. Mom is a runner and her favorite way to run is with dogs. My older sister Katie ran up to 15 miles helping her train for a marathon. Now my younger sister runs 3-5 miles with her. Running with dogs is simply the best and Mom says if you have a fear of hills, dogs will teach you to charge and love them!
