Every dog needs exercise, but you get to choose the kind of exercise you both get. If you decide that you want to jog with your dog, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
First, make sure you have a breed that can handle going for a jog. Some breeds, like Golden Retrievers, are built for running. Other breeds, like Pugs, don’t make good jogging partners.
Just because you have a breed that can handle going for a jog doesn’t mean you can just leave the house and run for three miles. If your dog hasn’t ever jogged before, it’s important to start running in short bursts. Take plenty of breaks and offer your dog some water during those breaks.
