Sooo winter was not so kind to me and all the hot chocolate and staying in doors all the time definitely had me gaining a couple pounds so I wanted to start jogging with Ori and Laika. They're fantastic at power walking but usually when I start running they think it's playtime and they start play fighting... on the leashes... while I'm trying to jog. Which doesn't work out too well. My apartment is basically situated right on a park with a great jogging trail so I'd really like to start using it now that it's warm out and I think it would be good and healthy for the dogs to get some good exercise in too. So any suggestions at trying to get the dogs to run with me? Should I just run with one, then come back in and switch them out halfway through my workout? Also, when I walk with them I use one leash with an attachment on it that connects to both their collars. Its easier for walking but would using separate leashes be better for jogging?
The dog park I go to is an island that's entirely a dog park and it has some good running trails so I suppose I could go there and run with them off leash but it would be much more convenient to make use of the park here. I already go to the dog park about once a week anyways and it's not super close.
