Let your dog lead the way


Can’t find a running buddy? Need some motivation to get out there and clock up those miles? A canine companion could be just the ticket to boosting your running game

Dog owners are 77 per cent more likely to fill their exercise quota compared to those who don’t own a pooch, according to an Australian study. But what if you don’t have the time and space for your own four-legged friend?

Volunteer to walk someone else’s dog! Jogs for Dogs has developed an amazing new concept where they match runners with pet owners whose dogs need exercise. So, if you fancy some company while you pound the pavement – and the chance to earn some extra cash – head to www.jogsfordogs.com to register. You can earn around £15 for a 30-45 minute run – and those puppy dog eyes will keep you going for miles!
