Default Running with your dog

How many of you guys run with your dogs? Just idle curiosity after a run with my pooch. She is the best, most consistent running partner I could have. Friends aren't always game for a good run, little red dog most definitely is
It's wonderful to be a human in a Vizsla world!

We're not running right now but we were a LOT a few months ago and Kastle goes with both of us. Jason despises running with dogs but loves to take Kastle - he's so polite and you barely notice him. I take Kastle as well because it makes me feel better when I run at night alone. We occasionally take Eden because she loves it...but she pulls horribly the whole time and my upper back gets sore

I want to start as soon as Merlin is old enough

I am hoping to get him running in a top clip/regular harness

I kind of do, expect I'm so out of shape, it's mostly walking and some running

My "running" is just a nice trot for him. Every time we slow down to a walk he dies a little inside.

It's nice for me, because he's encouraging, and additionally, I can run at night when no one is watching without being afraid of creeps

I don't run with mine mainly because I despise running but I do bike worth both Traveler and Didgie (sitting at the dog park with Didgie right now after biking here with her).

I really love it especially when I break it up with a fun place in the middle where they get to swim. And it forces me to keep active even when I really don't want to.

I do a little. I started jogging during the spring and have been taking Boo since I got home this summer. We just go between 1 and 2 miles at a pretty slow jog. She's not really in shape (granted, neither am I), but she does okay at my pace which seems to keep her at a moderate trot. She starts to lag a bit sometimes toward the end and promptly lays down when we get home, but she's always wanting to go when I'm leaving the house so I do think she enjoys it. I just really like the company and am not looking forward to having to jog alone again when I go back to school. I need to keep it up though, because I'm trying to get in shape for some hiking trips in August!

We run with Artimis pretty often. He has no problem running 3 miles at a decent pace, though I do lol We haven't been running in a while, and are just now getting back into it thanks to the great weather. He had no problem, took it like a champ. My boyfriend and I had a bit tougher time though lol

We will likely start running regularly with Talon when he's just a bit older.
