RunningDog is a program located in Ohio that trains runners how to run with the adoptable dogs held in rescues and shelters. Runners complete our program as RunningDog certified dog runners. We provide dog handling basics, simple first aid and best practices for running with shelter dogs.
Our primary mission is to help keep kenneled adoptable dogs physically active, mentally stimulated and emotionally balanced while they wait for their new homes.
Our secondary mission is to promote our program as a way for runners to engage in a cause that uses their hard won athletic conditioning in a unique way.
