Where To Begin? / How many miles can a dog run in a week?

Many breeds can easily run 5-7 miles , if conditioned for it. Some working dogs run 25-35 miles per week. Some breeds should not be on a running program at all. It depends heavily on your dog’s current fitness level, breed and age. Like humans, pets who aren’t used to running will need to build their endurance by gradually increasing mileage. We specialize in exercising pets, not working dogs, so our runs typically cover 2 to 7 miles.

Dogs that are typically NOT runners:

  • “Toy” breeds (Maltese, Pekingese, etc.)
  • dogs with squished in noses (pugs, bulldogs, etc.)
  • extra large breeds (Mastiff, Great Dane, etc.)
  • puppies
  • seniors (many seniors still enjoy jogging, but at a slower pace. It helps with stiff joint pain and you’ll likely see a more playful, energetic pet.)

These dogs may not be runners, but they often enjoy a low-impact, slow jog (fast trot) around the neighborhood.
