Usually run with company, However yesterday there were no mates so I gave our old fella a bell and borrowed his 3 year old chocolate Labrador. Like most chocolate labs, this one is insane. I'd not let it off the lead as if it sees another dog it won't just pull, it'll do this weird vertical take off jumping.
So, off I went for a gentle run of about 5-8 miles. Figured lets get out there and see how it feels.
Felt great to me. There were a couple of very early pauses to chat with other dog walkers and assess 'Flynn's reaction with other dogs. After this we continued along the trails. Thats kinda where the good bit ends. I got to about a mile and Flynn was knackered. He could walk all day, but get to a jog and he's out of it. Still did the 5 miles, but at his pace.
Just wondered if anyone else has tried running with a hound and if so what breeds have proved up to the task and what breeds have been blatant failures.?
