In order for your dog to remain happy and healthy, you need to provide them with exercise. This does not mean that you take a few minutes when it is convenient for you, because dog’s bodies are designed specifically to burn the calories that they ingest. This means that if you do not provide enough exercise for your dog, not only will they lead a life that is less happy and healthy, they will probably be far less manageable than if you did. They will act out in undesirable ways like excessive whining and barking, they will destroy furniture and toys, they will be difficult on walks or possibly even aggressive toward dogs or humans, and they will gain weight. All of these things makes the experience of owning a dog less pleasurable and fulfilling than it could be, and the answer is simply to find ways to exercise them. Veterinarians suggest about 2 hours of walking with you each day, along with some high intensity exercise like running in order to get their heart rate up. Higher intensity exercise should be done about every two or three days, the same way a gym membership works for us. Elevated heart rates for dogs will almost never be produced by walking alone, and instead will have to involve running, hiking or swimming. They must move quickly up and down hills and over uneven ground in order to utilize the muscles they have developed specifically for these tasks. Anything less than this will result in excesses of energy and bad behavior, as well as health issues.
This year was the hottest year ever recorded in Las Vegas. This trend is showing no signs of stopping, so we are expecting future summers to be the same intensity if not more. We are also expecting the winters to be colder and more extreme. So how is a dog owner expected to provide hours of walking outside every day with their dog, along with trips to the dog park to run? How can they be expected to hike and swim with their dog when temperatures are over 100 or under 40 degrees? The answer is RUN DAWG Mobile Dog Gym. We come to you in a climate controlled van and allow your dog to set their own pace on our treadmills. The treadmills are not motorized and the dog is not forced to walk or run any faster than they want to. Instead, the energy levels of that dog and their desire to run and chase will decide how intense the workout is. Your dog can get out all that extra energy and aggression that they have built up inside during a fun and healthy 30 minute session any time they want, no matter how bad the weather is outside.
