Running Buddy

I have the BEST running buddy ever! He’s got brown eyes, black hair, and is the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. He’s my 11 month old border collie and his name is Dean. 😉

We’ve been running together since he was about 5 months old, but he’s just now getting good at it. I mean, he’s always been good at running, but we’ve had to do a lot of leash work, basic commands, and the general concept that we don’t stop to smell things, chase squirrels, etc while we’re running. And he’s getting better everyday!

The farthest he’s gone is 3 miles and we were working on building up from there before I got hurt. Eventually I’d like him to be able to do long runs with him and have him go 10 plus miles. But since we’ve been sidelined for almost a month we have a lot of work to do before we get there. Hahaha but I think he’ll have an easier time getting there than I will.

Do you have a four legged running buddy?

What kind of runs do you do together?

How far has your fuzzy friend gone with you?
