Just like there are all kinds of runners, there are all kinds of dogs who can enjoy a run. Not all dogs will be the type that are bouncing off the walls with a high energy level that needs released. Some may enjoy the routine, a slower pace and the experience of exploring new scenery.
That would be the case with Trinket. On Saturday’s run, Trinket was calm the entire ride over to the rail trail. We started with a slow jog and she stayed right with me but never tried to pull or run in front of me. We covered five miles but it was slow, with occasional breaks and walking. She was easy to handle as other people passed, bikes rode by and a few other dog walkers passed us by.
I think I found a beginner runner dog. Any beginning runners want a buddy? Join us!
