Man’s Best (running?) Friend

You love to run and, like many Austinites, there’s a good chance that you love your dog(s).

But do those two go together?

The knee-jerk response is ‘yes!’ – of course they go together. What better running partner could there be than your energetic, enthusiastic and seemingly athletic dog? Besides, this is your best friend that we’re talking about!

The answer, however, isn’t that simple. Your dog certainly can be a great running partner, but just as with a human running partner, you must take steps to gradually introduce the activity. Your dog naturally likes to run, but not the way that people run, and this can cause problems for the both of you.

If you are a dog owner, or anticipate becoming one, make sure that you take a few minutes to read this article from the New York Times on what you need to consider before taking your best friend out on your next run!
