The Best Types of Dogs for Runners | Runner's World
A graduate of the University of South Dakota’s Business School in 1998, Jeff has worked for one of Kansas City’s premier commercial insurance brokers, learning the ropes of the business world. Ready to get back to what he is passionate about, Jeff created KC Dog Runners in 2008.Our runs will be no more than a two dog to one runner ratio; all dogs will be observed one on one with their dog runner before being approved to run with a dog from another household. Depending on the fitness goals established for your dog and his energy level, fitness sessions will range from an easy jog to a fast paced run.Some breeds, such as huskies and greyhounds, were bred to run, and most working dogs are naturally suited to running. By contrast, squishy-nosed dogs, such as pugs and bulldogs, don’t make good distance athletes because they’re prone to overheating. If you want to go long, run in the snow, or hit technical trails, some breeds definitely rise to the top. (For tips on how to run with your best friend, check out .)Where to run Start simple. Pick a route that is familiar and doesn’t pit you against guard dogs or heavy traffic. Hot asphalt, sharp ice, and broken glass can injure sensitive footpads. Remember, running on a beach might be scenic and invigorating, but muscles and tendons have to work extra hard in soft, deep sand. Slowly build up distance, pace, and the challenge of the terrain. This is exercise, not playtime. Always obey local leash laws and, for consistency and safety, keep your dog on a leash.The safety of your dog is our number one concern. We will always start off with a short relief walk, then build up to a comfortable running pace, and will end the run with a three to five minute cool down walk. We constantly monitor your dog for signs of heat exhaustion, fatigue or injury. We will walk or take breaks as necessary. We carry a cell phone, fresh water (summer), plastic clean-up bags with us on every run. Our runners have been trained on pet first aid and emergency protocols.Our team consists of collegiate cross-country and track runners, marathoners and endurance athletes who are passionate about running and dogs! All our Athletes are fully vetted and go through an extensive hiring and training process before they work with any of our clients.
