D.C. Dog Running for Canine Fitness
While walking your dog provides important social and biological functions, it can not match the positive aspects of dog running for physical activity.
Pant & Wag's fun and spirited professional dog running through Rock Creek Park or many of our other dog-centric locations in Washington, DC, will help your dog build muscle, burn energy, and increase stamina. Our dog runners always ‘keep one eye on the dog’ and will interval the pace between speed walking, jogging, and sprinting along with many planned water breaks during the summer months to avoid heat stroke and overexertion.
A weighted doggy back-pack may be used to intensify the work-out and to give your dog a sense of purpose. And unlike dog runners, who do the same exercises with your dog day after day, Pant & Wag dog running is part of an overall cross-training workout; We'll use a variety of different exercises to provide your dog a true canine fitness program.
While doggy daycare, dog walkers, and dog runners use a 'cookie-cutter' approach and treat all dogs the same, Pant & Wag exercise programs are developed exclusively for your dog to help keep fido fit.
