Hi all, I believe this question can probably be best answered by Marke but everyone please feel free to jump in and contribute. My DDB Fódhla is now 17months old and I would like to know if we are approaching the right age for me to introduce her to running with me. I do a minimum of three 5km runs per week but will do at least one 7.5km or 10km also. I do not run Fódhla at the moment but when out for on-leash walks I occasionally quicken to a jog for maybe 100m or so. Her gait usually goes from walk to amble to pace but only very very rarely does she get into a trot. I would have thought that a trot is most comfortable and efficient movement for a dog, maybe my pace is too slow for her to reach a trot. Anyway can you please advise of the best way and at what age to safely introduce running into her exercise routine. The surfaces of the areas where I run are concrete, tarmac, grass, sand & rough trail. For those using imperial measurement 5km = 3.1 miles, 7.5km = 4.6 miles, 10km = 6.2 miles Thanks in advance.
