Our dog is one of my best running pals...she always wants to run, never complains, and pushes me to run further. Although she may look like the loving dog she is, she is a bear to run with! She pulls the leash to the point my hand feels like its bleeding, my shoulder is sore from her pulling, my hand feels like its going to snap off, and its a rare occasion if she let's me stop to catch a breath. Now if my husband takes her running, she's on her best behavior...too bad she's stuck running with me for the next year. Maybe I can get her trained to my liking (highly doubt it, but its worth a try).
(She loves her new Christmas Reindeer)
My husband keeps telling me to get a leash designed to run with dogs, but I keep putting it off thinking I can train her with the one we have (a Harley Davidson leash). The leash I've been thinking of:
Ha, ya right! I doubt I would even make it to the sidewalk with my dog if I attempted running with this leash. I've tried a harness with her and she pulls so hard it rubs her skin raw under her belly. I feel like I look every time I go to the pet store, but don't find anything I like.
Those of you dog runners...what kind of leash do you use to run with your furry friend?
