Being able to go out and run with your dog is an activity that in addition to making us get fit, will make the dog perform physical activity and can also get fit with us. He will also have fun, because besides, all dogs love to run and have fun, because they take it as a game.
Go out and run with your dog
Running with the dog brings many benefits to both, such as motivation. Surely when you go out to run with friends you are more motivated than if you do it alone. It is in these moments when the spirit of effort and self-improvement appears.
Something similar happens with dogs, because … he’s also our friend, right? In addition, he will never fail us or tell us that he does not have time or that he does not want to go out to run. Our furry friend will always be willing to go with us.
For both the human and the dog, going for a run is an activity that helps to release tension and stress. If you’ve had a very busy day or a week with a lot of stress, go for an hour on the weekend is great and especially if it is done in the company of someone you love.
The dog will not interpret going to run as a sport activity but as a game. This will make you able to concentrate more when you exercise and do not dedicate yourself to talking when you run as you do with friends, although nobody takes away that you can talk to your dog.
On the other hand, the dog will help us to put aside sedentary lifestyle and to have an active life. Just by telling them that we are going to run, they will be willing to go out with us to have fun and to play with some good races.
Going for a run and doing activities with the dog, will help us to strengthen and reinforce more the existing bonds between both, creating moments and memories that will last forever.
