Jogging with a dog is great if both parties do ‘their jobs’. The person’s job is to set the pace, the direction, and have the leash fairly loose. The dog’s job is to match the person’s pace and not to be too distracted by the other dogs also running. But, this ‘symbiosis’ takes a while to learn.

Running is good for both the person and the dog, except that I can’t run. Too many back injuries. So, instead, me and the “Dodoïte” (pronounced: Dodo-ï-te) we go for couple hours long walks.
