Puppy's First Run!

Kaalia was cleared by the vet this week to start running with me - and with today's lovely weather we finally had our first chance!  We made it all the way around the block, and she still had energy so we went down to the end of the street and back at a sprint before heading back inside.  She was incredibly well behaved, no barking at people or chasing after cars, stayed pretty close to me without much pulling at the leash...  I'd say it was a total success!

The only downside was that she STILL seemed to have energy afterwards!  I had to play fetch with her for another 10 minutes before I got her to lie down and take a nap!  Maybe next time we'll go a little farther, get her good and tired so when *I* am tired I can take MY much-needed nap!

Other dog runners - any tips or things to think about as I start to train Kaalia for longer runs?  What are some problems you've run into?  What breed is your furkid, and how far does s/he run with you?


  1. She is so dang cute! Yay for a successful first run!!! :) LOL about her still being energetic after all that!

    1. She's so very PUPPY! Always energetic, all the time! So glad she finally wound down a bit - plus, super cute snuggly puppy pic!
