Tug and Run

November 15, 2007

Our dogs require a daily dose of exercise.

I’ve isolated the two favorite exercising rhythms that our dogs thrive on:
running–whether it be a chase, or a run/walk with the pack–and
playing tug.

Running is aerobic, and it stimulates the cardiovascular system, and the other is tugging on a toy, a toy onto which they clamp their strong jaws onto and pull as hard as they can. These are two very different kinds of exercise, and I’m trying to transfer this to my own exercise schedule.

Tug, and run. That combination makes my dogs very happy.
