Dog Running

Get the wind in your fur and live a little.

daily exercise is one of the most important ways to help your dog be a healthy, happy member of your family

Dogs can’t drive themselves to the gym or go for a jog whenever they please, so that’s why it’s important to help make exercise a daily routine.

Dogs are natural athletes, and some of them were born to be sprinters. Running isn’t for every dog, but many breeds benefit tremendously from running on a regular basis. Did you know that Weimaraners and Jack Russell Terriers can handle a 10-mile run? Of course you know that Greyhounds like to go for a quick dash, but other pups like Beagles and Labradors love it too. In fact, the list of dog breeds that naturally benefit from running regularly is pretty long. Whether your dog’s breed is genetically built to run, or if you just have an energetic pet who loves to go for a jog, many dogs benefit from running.

Personalized service for every dog, every time.

Here’s how we help dogs thrive and make homes happy.

Meet & Greet

We start out with a free one hour consultation. I’ll meet your dog and we’ll talk about how we can make their lives happy and healthier. We’ll discuss the abilities the dog has, any physical or mental challenges and their daily routine. I’ll then make suggestions specifically designed for your pet.

Let’s Run

Depending on the dog a normal 30 minute outing will get the dog between 2 & 3 miles. While were out, we’ll be working on proper leash manners, give them plenty of time for potty breaks and opportunities to follow their noses. Your dog is sure to receive tons of praise and positive incentive!

Happy at Home

Once were home, the dog will be dried off if necessary, receive a healthy, grain-free treat, and put back in the house or crate. You’ll receive an email update with picture so you know your pet is happy at home. We treat our pets like our own and their owners like we would want to be treated.

Pet parents love us almost as much as the dogs!

Our energetic lab, Ruby, loves the days when Jen comes to take her for a run.  Jen is very professional and knowledgeable, and our dog adores her.  We know we will have a tired and happy dog when we get home from work, and Ruby’s outings with Jen help keep her in shape for weekend adventures with our family.  We are lucky that Jen has made this her business and highly recommend her dog walking / running services.

If you’re looking for personalized professional help with your pups, look no further than Jen at RunThoseDogs. My husband Dave and I have two very high maintenance dogs, Holmes a Weimaraner and Max a German Shorthaired Pointer, who are accustomed to getting 5+ miles of off-leash running a day. We were finding it hard to keep up with the demands, especially in the winter months. When I called RunThoseDogs, my husband and I were both a bit skeptical that we’d find someone who could actually tire the dogs out. Jen quickly put me at ease — she’s a distance runner and I knew right away this wasn’t going to be a typical dog walking service. Jen met with us and listened carefully to our needs, adjusting the timing and schedule to create a personalized program. She takes our dogs on a 60 minute run twice a week and sends me pictures and updates about their outings. I feel like “the boys,” as she calls them, are getting the same care that we would give them. Working with Jen has been great for our dogs and for us — it gives them something fun to do during the day and frees us up a couple of nights a week. We have absolutely loved working with Jen and would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for top quality care for their dogs.

Jen is amazing! I hesitate to write this because I’ve told so many people already and I want them available when we need them! 😉 This has been one of the best service-based businesses that I’ve EVER dealt with!

Knowing that Jen will come and give Peach the attention she demands, in the environment that Peach is most comfortable in, is the only reason we can go on vacation without a constant sense of worry. That’s no way to travel. When we’re going away these days, we get excited for Peach, because we know she’s going to get to run and be well taken care of, and I’m going to come home to a happy dog. I really appreciate the pictures and updates as well – when you wake up in a different time zone from your pet, it’s very comforting!

I feel so blessed to have Jen in our lives. Not only is she 100% reliable and professional in her care for Emma, she truly will try to work with you to come up with the best option(s) that is in the best interest for you and your dog. I have complete peace of mind on the days Emma gets her runs with Jen. Her daily email with pictures of Emma on her run is a highlight of my day!

Laura K • Redmond, WA

Jennifer is great with dogs! She really took the time to get to know Kai. I use her services to get him some exercise when I’m out of town and she’s the only person who’s ever worn him out! Jen’s very reliable and trustworthy- I’d highly recommend her for any of your K-9 care needs!

Marilyn • Bellevue, WA

From the first time we asked Jennifer and Becky to watch our dogs, we were impressed. They are very thorough, love to be with animals and utilize technology to make sure we have peace of mind while away from our dogs. And our dogs LOVE them! I would recommend their service to anyone!

Danniell N• Arlington

I highly recommend Jennifer to any one that wants the best for their animals. My Jack Russell and English Lab adore all the Run Those Dogs gals. We get daily pictures and updates, they have noticed health issues and notified us, this allowed us to get them to the Vet and start treatment. I will only trust my animals care to Run Those Dogs!!!!!

Jen and Becky are Amazing with our 4 dogs( and cats). We have an abused rescue dog who has fear aggression. Jen and Becky have been nothing but patient with Adele. Adele has gone from hidding in her safe corner to poking her head out the door. The other dogs love the time playing ball and are exhausted afterwards. I would highly recommend. Run Those Dogs

Kelly V • Marysville, Wa
