Jogging Is Good For Dog Health

Jogging is a great way to get exercise. It could be a great way for your dog to get exercise too! However, not all dogs should go on a jog under all circumstances. Here’s how to know if you should take your dog with you when you go for a jog.

Do you have an active breed? Dogs like terriers, shepherds, and retrievers make great running companions. However, if you have a small dog, like a Chihuahua, you should leave him at home. Canines with flat faces, like bulldogs, shouldn’t go jogging either.

Is your dog currently active? If he already has plenty of stamina from running and playing, go for it! If he’s a bit lazy, start with short jogs first before progressing to longer jogs.

Not sure if your dog should jog with you? Your Happy Valley, OR veterinarian clinic will be able to provide you with their professional opinion.
