Fun Runs to do with your Dog!

Being a veterinarian I love being active with my dog, Hope! Since she came into my life 10 years ago, I have been happier and healthier. She is now 12 and enjoying her time laying on the couch, getting belly rubs and of course eating “cookies”. 🙂

She knows that word and where they are kept! We have to spell it…

Hope, my dog


I have been getting more into running and I was interested in finding out if there were any races people can do with their dogs. How are you active with your pets? I wanted to share what I found…

Here is a list of races I found upcoming:

  • 31st Annual Dog Days Run, Gainesville, Florida – September 29, 2012
  • Jones Bridge Animal Hospital’s Stray Dog Strut 5K, Alpharetta, Georgia – October 6, 2012
  • SisuCare Dog Jog 2012, Gardner, Massachusetts – October 7, 2012
  • It’s Running Cats and Dogs, Mobile, Alabama – October 14, 2012
  • KAH 5K Dog Walk & Fun Run, St. Louis, Missouri – October 20,2012
  • 1st Annual Newburyport “Howling Mile” Newburyport, Massachusetts – October 27, 2012
  • Hot Dog Trot, Weatherford, Texas – November 3, 2012
  • Running with the Big Dogs 5K and Fun Run, Crestview, Florida – November 17, 201
Did to you know there are also races just for dogs?! One is the Long Run Derby. I actually got to see one when Brian and I were visiting family in Pittsburgh. We went to Kennywood Amusement Park which was a ton of fun! One upcoming race is the 6th Annual Long Dog Derby at the 42nd Annual Denver Oktoberfest. If you are in the area definitely check it out!
Remember that your health is important! I do P90X, Turbofire, P90X2, Insanity, etc so I stay heathy for my family. It allow us to increase our endurance and strength so we can be active in the the outdoor activities we enjoy!
Dogs keep us healthy

    I’m working up to going on regular hikes with my dog(s). I did this a lot before moving south into the summer humidity & school took over my life. I’m looking forward to getting healthy again & spending quality time with the fur kids.

      That is great! It’s important for both dogs and humans to be active. Especially medium to large breed dogs as obesity can affect joints. Overall obesity buys a strain on all the internal organs. Keep staying consistent!
