wyoung2153 I love running with Titan but haven't been able to lately. I don't trail run, but we do hike on occasion and he loves it.

I use a "Hunter" Cross body leash when we run. I could only find it in Germany so a couple friends of mine are going to visit family there and are going to try to find me a new one so excited.

This would be me too!

I actually want to start jogging, I don't think I could ever become a dedicated runner though.

scarfish gotta say i'm with the majority. no running for me. i absolutely hate running. to me it's a super annoying torture on the body. i really can't understand how some people like it. the whole reason i didn't re-enlist in the army was i was so sick of lining up at 6:30 am to run an hour everyday while hung over.

Juliem24 Thank you! I'll check it out. Can't use a leash, I've lost the strength in my hands due to a neck injury, so that will be perfect.

GSDBriard Julie, it's made by Ruffwear and I think it's called the Omnijore system, they also make a web harness that is pretty similar in design.

The system comes with a leash and body harness as well...i don't like the leash, it's way too long for city running but works well on trails. In the photos I have the ruffwear roamer leash attached to it instead since it's shorter.



As you can see I let mine run off leash on trails as well and they love it! Kafka, the Briard will run ahead maybe 7-8 ft. and then turn and wait, then run again...Watson will stay right with me. It's not legal here so I don't let them run off leash very often.

That photo happened to be taken while I was sweeping part of the course to a local 100 mile ultra event making sure it was in good shape and I was pretty sure it would be empty.

I aim for 60-70 miles a week since I have a race coming up but otherwise I stick to 40-50, the dogs do maybe 20 of those with me.

Muskeg Yup, I run with my dogs daily on the trails- often around 100 miles/week. They love it. I love it. It forms a special bond, I feel like a complete "pack" out there in the woods, and the smells, sights, and forward movement make the dogs content and happy. I have three dogs, so I go without leashes whenever possible. It is legal in the State park nearby, and "voice control" legal in the city. We are lucky.

Juliem24 OP, what kind of harness did you say that is? I run, but have not been happy with the arrangement I have cuz Rudy weaves. That looks like it might solve some problems.

GSDBriard I've been running since high school cross country...but i'm pretty sure i kept doing it because of the dogs. When I adopted my first GSD I lived in an apartment and figured a good exercise routine would keep her from eating my living room.

It worked...for the most part. I lost a few college textbooks but who needs those...

Ruffwear make cool stuff for running or hiking, i have a hydration type thing like a camelbak for myself just made by another company. I also have a collapsible silicone cup thing that slides right into a pocket and i can fill that with water for the dogs.
