Expel Energy & Wear Them Out

A run for your dog on your schedule. Great for high energy dogs who do not expel enough energy during a normal walk.

 

Regular runs are great for maintaining overall health.

 

Why Go Buddy Run?

Just like in humans, pets require regular exercise to live long and healthy lives. An active lifestyle and regular exercise also maintains and improves mental health, leading to happier lives overall.

 

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 56 percent of dog in the United States were obese in 2018.

 

Many dogs will develop health issues during their life without regular exercise. One of the best ways to keep your dog healthy is to provide three or more 20-minute walks per day. For most of us, this is not feasible. Enter Go Buddy Run.

 

One thing often overlooked by dog walking is a dog's physiology. Dogs naturally have a higher resting heart rate than humans. So while a 20 minute walk with a walker may make your walker’s heart pump, your dog may still not enter an aerobic state of exercise. With our State of the Art Slat Mills, your dog will maintain full control over his or her speed and only encouraged to run when they are comfortable. Crawl, Walk, Run, Run, Run!

We started Go Buddy Run after years of owning a Pet Grooming Salon called "Little Jenna's Grooming". We have met thousands of dogs over the years and saw first hand how many dogs struggle with weight and getting enough active time to burn energy and exercise their joints. We now have the opportunity to help pet parents add an exercise regimen to their dog's routine. Our goal is to help dogs live happier and healthier lives, help old dogs feel young, and dogs recovering from injury get back stronger than ever. We want to increase your dog's confidence, trust, and give them an outlet to unleash their energy in a safe way. We cant wait to meet you!

Add-On Services

What do I need before my dog can use Go Buddy Run?


We require proof of rabies vaccination before we can service your pet. For dogs with pre-existing conditions or who are geriatric, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian before started them on a workout program.




How do you work out my dog?


We train each dog individually to become accustomed to the treadmills. We take a multi phased approach. As with most skills, beginning with an introductory period is critical. This phase is a great mental workout as your dog focuses on learning something for the first time. Many dogs will begin with a slow walk and gradually become accustomed to the treadmill before entering a quick trot. Once your dog has become accustomed to the treadmill and is confident in themselves, we begin to train with your dog to increase their pace. We use positive motivation and toys to really have fun and get their cardiovascular system going. We do this in burst throughout the 30 minute session to get the most out of their workout too.




How do the treadmills work without electricity?


Our slat mills (treadmills) are 100% dog powered. There are no motors or electricity making your dog go. They are in full control through their natural movement. Some of our slat mills are powered in order to engage the hydraulics to simulate an uphill walk or run.




Can both my dogs run at the same time?


Yes, but it does depend on their size. At them moment, we have a medium and large treadmill in our mobile gym. If they are both small or medium sized dogs, they can both run. We can only run one large dog at a time at the moment.




Do I need to be home for you to run my dog?


We prefer you be home until your dog is confident and in a routine. That could take a few runs or more. After that, we can arrange your dog’s workout even if you are not home. We offer additional services like feeding, potty breaks, and nail trimming services for your convenience.
