Your ideal running buddy: your dog.

Running is an excellent way to keep in condition, and it’s always more fun with two. Who better as your running partner than your dog? Your bestest pal will be delighted with the extra exercise and spending time with you. However, before your enthusiasm runs away with you, there are some things to consider. Firstly, check with your vet, if it’s a good idea for your dog. Obviously, small breed dogs with short legs won’t thank you for running. Less obviously, breeds with short noses may have trouble breathing, when exercised too vigorously. It’s also worth knowing that all puppies and large breeds of any age shouldn’t be overexerted. It’s too rough and tough on their joints.

Your dog is eager to please, but it’s best to take it slow in the beginning. Run at your dog’s pace, take catch a breath time, by combining with intervals of walking. Too much too soon can increase the risk of injury, just like for us humans. Start with a warm-up, it’s good for your muscles and your dog’s. Ideally, run off-road, asphalt is not good for a dog’s paws and joints. And of course, your dog will enjoy the natural sights, smells and sounds when you’re in a park, or the woods. Don’t forget to bring water, it’s important that you hydrate your body too.

When you’re finished, always check their paws, to make sure they haven’t suffered any cuts or injuries. The last thing we must mention: have fun! This exercise will make you both healthier and happier and increase the magical bond between you.

Feeding your dog. Best before or after the walk?

It’s best to feed your dog after the walk, but not immediately after.

Vets recommend a wait of 45 minutes or longer, because feeding your dog while they are still warm and panting from the walk can cause serious digestive problems.

What does a dog think about cheese food?

As a treat, yes. As a regular meal, absolutely not.

Most dogs love cheese, but it’s best to give low-fat cheeses like mozzarella, cottage cheese or even a soft goat cheese. Moderation is key, because cheese is as fattening as it is tasty. You also have to be careful, make sure your dog isn’t lactose intolerant before you start giving cheesy treats.
