WARNING..."Do not attempt these techniques yourself without consulting a professional."
(Everything must have a warning label these days and running with your dog is no different)
If you saw me running down the street you would probably say, “Yeah, that’s an accident waiting to happen.” I’m usually dangerously tethered to my 3 four legged best friends. Canines were built to run just as humans were and as soon as my 3 see the shorts and shoes come out they know what’s up. They start to prance around with excitement and Lucy even starts to whine just like a kid in the supermarket checkout line staring at the eye level candy.
Make sure your dog knows how to walk on a leash before you try running. Follow the Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan’s techniques for proper leash technique and make sure your dog Is not running in front of you, but by your side. The key is holding the leash where the dog is only getting about 3 feet, so s/he will stay by your side. You may be able to give her some slack if she is not pulling way out in front of you.
