District Dogs would like to introduce Paw Cardio!
Some of our clients have asked about jogging and running services and we feel this will be a good way to help some of our high energy dogs release that build up energy.
We will be offering dog jogging in 20 minute and 30 minute lengths.
They will include a brief warm up and cool down period and a nice steady jog through the neighborhood. The amount of cardio we do is limited, so if you are interested please give us a few days notice if possbile.
Most jogs are during non peak dog walking time and usually occur in the morning or later afternoon/evening.
