Thought I'd share a funny realization I had today. My vet told me that I could start taking Squeegee running with me when he was 8-10 months old since that's when they anticipated his skeletal growth to be done. I took him running for the first time today and was nervous and planning to take it nice a slow with him. Well, I take off running and look over to find that Squeegee is comfortably trotting along beside me. He doesn't have to run at all to keep up with me!! Haha, all this time I've been holding off and trying to be careful for nothing.

Anyway, as I said in my earlier post, we are considering getting Squeegee a playmate and I was wondering if anyone runs with two dogs. Seems like it would mean a lot of leash untangling.

Melissa, how did you teach him to heel while running? I've tried techniques that I've found online and he doesn't seem to get it. I understand the pack walk principle where you are alpha and they walk behind you because they know they are not top dog. Is that the key?
