The best way to run with dogs
23rd May 2019

By Robert Ellis

Pet Food brand Canagan is offering tips for owners running with their dogs.

Some of the tips the company gives include:

- Build up endurance steadily. Just like humans, some dogs may need their own version of couch to 5k if they are not used to running
- Take water for your dog. Their way of cooling down is panting, which can quickly lead to dehydration
- Stay present and pay attention to the signs your dog is giving you.
The brand added that some breeds that are extremely fast, such as sighthounds and lurchers, are speedy across very short distances, but will tire over longer ones. Other breeds such as Labradors will run alongside you and will complement your active lifestyle.
