When I got our dog from a shelter I knew she was a runner. Being an Australian Cattle Dog she needs to run. She and I have become running/jogging partners and it is so good for both of us! So my secret is....get a dog that needs a work out!
The dog has forced me outside instead of using the treadmill. It has helped my asthma, increased my strength and stamina and getting sunlight is good too.
