Exercise becomes so much easier with a gym partner! If you've been thinking about taking up running, no need to hit up your best friend for some motivation. Your furry friend will make a perfect running pal.
Dogs can make awesome running partners. Before you start taking your dog out on the trail, it's best to warm up your running buddy with short distance running. Before you start with trail running, remember to begin with leash training. If you have a younger dog, they'll need your guidance and a lot of training before going off-leash.
