Hi,
It's my first time posting, but i've alwas enjoyed reading all of you're posts. I have an amazing bully named Garrison. He is 10 and a half months and FULL of energy. I was wondering if it was alright to run with him? I usually go for 45 min, at a jogging pace. I would love to be able to bring him, but am worried about his joints.....Anyone run with there Bullmastiff?
Thanks

I take my bully for bike rides every night, and the vet said it was okay and my trainer suggested 45 min actually so your timing is good. The only thing I would say is, what I do with Lexie is let her set the pace if she starts to pull ahead a bit I speed up so she's running and if she's lagging behind a bit I slow down so we can walk, I figure she'll know what her body can handle and so far things have worked out perfect, and really if you are jogging the dog will still be at a nice walking pace anyways!
