DOG RUNS & WALKS
Running is a great way for your dog to burn off extra energy and get a great workout. It not only provides cardiovascular benefits, maintains muscle tone and assists in weight management, but it can help alleviate problem behaviors that arise out of boredom. Just like people, dogs need to build up endurance and stamina slowly when starting a running program. I will customize a running program for your dog based on his or her current abilitites and activity level. Dogs that display appropriate leash manners can even learn to run alongside the bike or rollerblades. Each session is tailored to your dog's needs, and all runs and walks include an appropriate warm-up and cool-down. However, running may not be suitable for every dog, and I offer walks and playtime for those dogs that cannot or should not run.
