Ok, so I'm utterly out of shape. And I have a 75 pound Labrador Chow 10 month old puppy. (my goal is to be less than twice his size!) And I'm pretty sure the answer to this issue is making him go to dog obediance school, but I'm broke as a joke, and I'd love some at home, DIY tips.
So I'm working on being able to jog an entire mile without having to stop. I can walk it, no problem, and I certainly can't run it full speed. So Bear and I go out (and he also kind of has to be part of the equation, I don't have time for 2 walks - one for me and one for bear
) and it starts fine. He will walk beside me and all is well. But he only has two speeds! It's either walk or full out run!
He has a shoulder harness, so that makes him easier to control. And he's a nice dog, he would learn easily enough if I knew how to teach him. The other problem (how many have I mentioned now in this one problem message!) is that my boyfriend runs with him, so I guess he's gotten used to full speed running.
So my question, if anyone is still here after this long, ridiculous puppy post, is what do I do to make him jog with me?!
