4 Tips To Train Your Dog To Run With You

We naturally want to share the things we love with the people and pets we love. This often translates into a desire to include your dog in your exercise routine if you like fitness!

Running is something that many pups love to do, and it's a great workout that will keep them healthy. But wait! Don't toss your dog into a running routine without any warning. It takes a bit of time and training to prepare your pup for daily runs.

If you’re an owner who wants to race around with your pup, read these four tips to train your dog to run with you.

Consult Your Vet

Before you start taking your dog on daily runs, consult the vet. Most pups can handle running and enjoy it, but not all breeds can handle the fast action. We don't recommend running with brachycephalic dogs (dogs with short muzzles), pups under nine months old, and older dogs. This is because running can put too much stress on their bodies. It’s better to go on leisurely strolls through the park with these kinds of pups.

Teach Basic Commands

Before you take your dog on runs, you need to train them. They should behave when leashed. Your dog should also understand basic commands, such as “sit” and “stay.” You should also socialize them well. The outside world is full of distractions, including cars, other humans and dogs, and squirrels. If your pup doesn't react well to these things, they can quickly make a fun run chaotic.

Walk Before You Run

You know what they say—you must walk before you run. This statement is literally true when you want to run with dogs! Like humans, pups need to build up their endurance before they can run long distances. On day one of your training, intersperse bursts of jogging or running throughout your walk. Gradually increase the amount of time you run each day. Your pup will slowly grow accustomed to sprinting and eventually be able to run for minutes at a time.

Start With Easy Locations

The next tip for training your dog to run with you is to start in an easy location. Instead of taking your pup to the rocky hiking trail from the beginning, you should start on a smooth and even sidewalk or grassy area. As your dog gets used to running and builds endurance, you can increase the difficulty.

A final tip for running with your pup is to always go out prepared! You'll need to bring treats and water along on your run. A hands-free dog leash belt will also make running easy because you won't have to worry about watching the leash and can safely store all your items.

For hands-free leash belts and other dog accessories, shop with DogGoods. We have products both you and your dog will love. Additionally, we donate a portion of every sale to an animal foundation of your choosing!
