How to Run With Your Dog

Check with your veterinarian before starting your dog on an exercise program. Make sure running is the right kind of exercise for your dog.

  • Warm up your dog. Put the animal through a few sprints to loosen up her muscles and get her heart pumping. Dogs may show signs of stiff-ness after the initial run, just like humans.

  • Build up slowly, and watch for signs of fatigue. If your dog lies down during a workout, end the session.

  • Keep water on hand before, during and after a workout.

  • Watch the running surface. If your dog is not accustomed to running on pavement, build up gradually.
