AHLAJ77, I had to laugh at your opening comment about doggies being wonderful motivators, lol...you are so RIGHT...
Harley, my yellow Labrador...sleeps at the top of my husbands head every night..I kid you not. Every morning since we started hiking (back on April 21st, 2014) at 3.45am SHARP every single morning, he will 'scoot' over to MY side of the bed and plonk his head right on top of mine. If that doesn't wake me up..he will then *drool* on me and/or nudge me with his cold nose. This is his way of telling me that it's time to GO!!

We live out here right in the heart of the Mojave National Preserve, along with just a handful of other people and have 1.5 million acres at our fingertips to enjoy and explore every day.
I started hiking back in April when the temp. were fairly low...around 70 degrees.
With summer here, our temps will be anywhere from 110-115 degrees so we have no choice but to leave before the sun comes up.

Hiking has done wonders for both me AND Harley...
Labradors are notorious for gaining weight...they get pudgy and since I've taken Harley on every single one of my hikes, he is looking all lean and muscular these days.
Below are the hikes that I've done since April 21st, 2014...I NEVER put him on a leash, out here, being that we are 100 miles from anything, in any direction, there is no need for one.

You know that if I'm hiking the numbers below, Harley is probably doubling his mileage as he is constantly running around chasing after all kinds of desert critters, lol

I use an app called 'Map My Walk' that uses stand alone GPS technology..which is good as we don't have cell phone service out here...I've often thought about strapping my phone onto Harley just to see exactly how many additional miles he is getting in, lol...
I may have to syart following him..haha

Dogs are such wonderful motivators! My dog LOVES to go on walks. She will sometimes be smiling the whole time and just look up at me with the sunshine in her face. Makes me happy :)

My little one is doing C25K with me. I love it when she gets so much exercise she's exhausted emoticon It makes me feel like we both did something productive. emoticon . She has such a good time being out of the apartment, but I do worry about the weather getting too warm too quickly. I am looking into cool vests for her but am worried about it chaffing her. She loves the special treats she gets when she runs too. There is a bar by the apartment she gets to visit and we will keep taking her up there for a non-physical outing. She thinks she runs that place!

It has been cold and windy so Honey only logged eight miles last week. She hasn't lost any weight. I think she takes after my side of the family, the more she exercises the more she eats.

My dog doesn't need to loose weight. she walks for at least 90 mins a day and does agility at the weekends and on Thursday evenings in the summer. She is also "daddy's little princess" and expects us to wait on her every whim. - as if.

Cassie has gone for a nice walk last week, but since then the nice days I have been working in the yard and she has been checking out everything over and over. I do need to get her out on walks again, but can only do one event still. The yard work is really wearing me out.

We have taken our dog Honey on several walks this last week. She has logged about 10 miles. She has not failed to check out ever culvert, mud puddle, or fast food wrapper along the road. She has a GOOD time.

My dog Maury is a corgi-aussie mix. He SHOULD love the outdoors and running and having that herding instinct kick in, but instead he fears rain, wet, dirt and the outdoors in general. He'd rather hang out indoors with the cat. His exercise is walking when we take him, and playing with his wobble kong for hours.

Dogs, dogs......I have 2 dogs that have been with me since they were puppies. (We keep their weight in check and walk at least 5 days a week) I do rescue/rehab and have all kinds of dogs coming in and out. Currently there are seven dogs here for various reasons, our newbie is paralyzed and tried out his new wheels today for the first time (he did great). I have one dog that was quite abused and is coming along slowly, if he "decides" to walk he gets a one on one (he doesn't really like the pack walk). One little girl just had surgery 3 weeks ago to put all of her internal organs inside where they belong....what a trooper, she is so happy and vivacious she wants to go go go. Needless to say, I get a lot of my walking in with the dogs several times a day. What a blessing to have them come into my life if even for a short while, get well and find families.

Peace.

Be Happy!!

my dogs don't need to lose weight either but they always go for part of my walks So the older dogs get the 2 mile loop with me more walk than run while the youngest is with hubby more run than walk . Then in the evening we just make it a family walk for all me, hubby, dogs and kids.

My dogs don't need to lose weight, unlike me! But they do love to go for walks, so I think this is a great idea! I NEVER take a walk with at least one of my dogs, so tracking how much they walk, also tracks how much I have walked!

After a lazy winter we have finally been getting our dog out for more walks. She loves it so much but you can tell she is not used to it after being lazy all winter as she is so tired after! Hope everyone else is having some great weather they can take the pooch out in.

My dogs Sugar and Buster have taken a couple long neighborhood walks together this week. Sugar is 11 yrs old and diabetic. I am watching her to make sure it is not too much on her. When she walks with me I make sure it is right after she has had a meal. She is also mostly blind and walks very well along with me. Buster loves his walks too and wants to say hello to anything that breathes on our way! emoticon

Every movement drives me closer to my goal.

I have 2 dogs, but to get a decent walk, the Boston has to go in the crate. He (like most Bostons, I presume) has a completely different set of motivations from mine. The standard poodle and I walk a couple days a week. Other exercise I do with both dogs (until the Boston starts biting the poodle in his crabbiness over not being the only dog in the room): running around with a toy bunny tied to a string while both dogs chase me. They try to catch it. I try to keep them from catching it. It's hilarious. I can usually get half a mile in before I give up due to dog crabbiness.

Cassie is homebound for a couple more weeks, but I plan to start taking her for walks again after that. We only got a few walks in before. This weekend is isn't supposed to get above freezing so we probably wouldn't have gone out anyway. I cannot handle cold weather anymore.

Okay, so much for my grand challenge to myself! I came down with that flu on Thursday, was DOWN for the count all weekend, and today I made a VERY short walk before I started coughing out of control again. I will walk, but not far until this cough is under control! At least I am not sneezing, shivering, and achy today! Just tired and coughing!
I walked for ten minutes. That is it. Maybe I can get ten more in this evening.
By the way, QUEENDARKLADY, my husband wants our next dog to be a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! My Brittany is only 2 and 1/2 yrs old, but our older dog Shadow is 14....still active, so he has a while to wait for one!

I really need to walk more often with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Mia. Although it would be more for my benefit than hers. She gets plenty of exercise chasing her cat siblings around the house!

Since I have a new dog and am wanting to get my walking in with her, I think I will try this. I won't be able to do anything Wednesday or this weekend, but hopefully the rest of this week. Today we went approximately .8 miles (less than I thought we were going to end up with, but the pedometer said .92 when we got back). I haven't walked a lot lately and had a cold all last week, so we are just getting started.

My legs are tired from the walk today and I am sure hoping that I can make it through my stress test on Wednesday.

My sis lives 1.6 miles away from me. When I told her what I was going to do, she challenged me to walk to her house! So I did! We actually met halfway, and then walked the rest of the way back to her house. She got the same amount of walk in that I did! It was 28 degrees outside...which isn't as cold as where you are...but still cold for an Oregonian! Due to the inversion layer that is hanging around the valley, the weather forecast is for this stuff to hang around until Tuesday evening! Sigh. Ah well. Bailey and I will walk again tomorrow.

Good plan, Lindy! I have two routes that I use on a regular basis. I take the shorter route in the morning before werk and the longer one on my days off. I know how long each route takes in case I forget to look at the clock before I leave.

I didn't get out and walk with the dog today but my SO did. I won't tomorrow either, because it's going to be too cold in the morning before work (0 - 5 above BRRR).

I walked over an hour yesterday with my Brittany, Bailey, and I have decided that both of us are the better for it! So we are going to do it again today! Yesterday the weather was 32 and foggy...today it is still 28...so I am going to wait an hour or two before we head out...hoping for a warmer day! heheheh! Amazing what difference 4 degrees can make!
But I am looking forward to our walk. I have decided that we are going to drive to a certain area, first map it out with the car so I know how far it is....then we are going to walk it!

I can walk, at a brisk pace with Maggie (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) for approximately one to two miles at a time. emoticon

On the other hand, Lily's (Pomeranian) idea of "walking" is to hop and run a few feet, sit, look around, hop and run a few feet, sit, look around, repeat, which takes at least a half hour to walk one block. Not a good walking partner. emoticon

Needless to say, I cannot sneak out of the house with Maggie without Lily at our heels.

I love my dogs, they totally motivate me to get out and exercise! We try to get a least a half hour walk daily. I wish mine knew how to walk on the treadmill. I always feel guilty when I can use the treadmill for my exercise, but they can't.

That sounds like fun. I am behind here. Since the 23rd dogs and I have walked 9 miles. Actually the dogs probably have more emoticon

3 miles. We hike/run in the hills by our house but you have to cross some private land (no houses) to get into the hills and today, they were putting up a temp fence around the property.......I'm sure they were getting sick of people dumping their trash. I hope we can still get through somewhere emoticon

We have one or two more days in the low 90's, then it will cool down. Glad you got in the mile!
I also walked a mile today. Bought some Petunias today as well. emoticon

The weather is pretty bad here today with lots of raian, cold and humidity, so Shadow got a good 30 minutes on the treadmill and I rode my horse for 90 minutes in the indoor arena where we stable her. We all got a pretty good workout.

We got in 3 miles yesterday and now heading down to the lake. She'll probably play for at least a 1/2 hour in the water chasing her frisbee. emoticon

I had an issue with my pit pulling me all over the place. But then
I got her a gentle leader.. Best investment!! Anytime she tries to pull it corrects her, she has pretty much given up on trying to pull

I hate walking my dog around our house, so during the week she gets on the treadmill and runs approx. 1.35 miles a night half running and half fast walk, and the walking part is ay an incline. On the weekends I take her into the woods where I stable my horse and let her run loose usually for a couple of hours. When I walk her on the leash she pulls me all over the place. I am not the autiorotative human as The Dog whisperer would want me to be. Hubby says I am her favorite toy.

Awesome idea!! I have a dog that needs to lose a few pounds and then 2 that just need to run all the time. I also have a foster who is really under weight, but she could use the walks for muscle gain! Poor girl

We're adding a new feature for our 4 legged friends. Some of us have dogs that need to lose weight as well, or at least maintain their weight to stay healthy. So we are adding "Dog Tracker". You can come in daily and record how long you walk your dog, or you can come in weekly. However you want to do it. And don't forget to let us know when your beloved pooch loses!
Thank you IAMARMSTRONG for suggesting the idea.
