GO FOR A RUN

Cristina and her dog, Lennon, share the joys of running together – and their go-to gear for running with your dog.

Running with your canine co-pilot is sure to bring a whole new kind of runner’s high. From watching your dog sprint from a sudden case of the zoomies to giving you an excited side-tongued smile, you’ll be laughing too hard to notice those sore muscles. With the Trail Runner™ dog leash belt and Grip Trex™ dog boots, your hound will be ready to go the extra mile. Here’s what Ruffwear employees Cristina & Lennon love most about running together.

The GO: "Trail running is how Lennon and I reconnect and get back in our groove. It's that go, go, go time of year, but there's no amount of busy-ness or stress that sharing a stretch of singletrack together can't fix."

The GIFT: "Laughter! Lennon never fails to make me laugh when we're out for our run. Sometimes it's watching her bounce like a rabbit over brush, or the side-tongue when she comes running back to me to check in. Almost always, though, it's her zoomies that really get me. Add in the runner's high for both of us, and we usually reach the end of the trail thoroughly refreshed, connected, and centered."
