You will be hard-pressed to find a better running partner than your dog. They are always eager to get out the door, no matter the weather. They don’t care about your pace, how far you go, and they never complain.
If you already road run with your dog, try hitting the trails a few times per week. A quick escape from the urban grind will reduce some stress for both you and your pup. Plus, regular cardiovascular activity benefits both you and your dog mentally, emotionally, and physically.
So leash up your best friend and find the nearest single track to experience the joy of trail running side by side.
