So there are these wooded trails near my house that I take the dogs to and it is by far, Jenny's most favorite place to go. She instantly perks up, tail and head held high, and walks very fast...this brings me to my question, when she walks fast, it's really more of a trot (she sometimes breaks into a canter!), and my little 2-legged self can't keep up comfortably. I found myself yesterday jogging beside her, then I looked over and thought, "OMG, I'm jogging with my pyr!"
What I want to make sure of is this ok for her? I don't force her to trot, she is setting the pace, when she stops to sniff, I stop with her, etc. But she is the first giant breed dog I've had and I don't want to hurt her, I guess I'm thinking in terms of joints, etc. What do you guys think?
