  • Place your dog’s leash in your left hand with no more than a 2-foot lead, and power walk back and forth for 1 to 2 minutes. 

 

  • Move to a light jog or sprint, back and forth for 2 minutes.

 

  • Stand in place and perform arm circles to warm up your shoulders, while your dog stands next to you.

 

“Remember to work at your own pace,” suggests Montgomery. “If this is your first time, your dog doesn’t know what to expect. Remember to praise them for their good actions.”
