Dog Running

Get the wind in your fur and live a little.

daily exercise is one of the most important ways to help your dog be a healthy, happy member of your family

Dogs can’t drive themselves to the gym or go for a jog whenever they please, so that’s why it’s important to help make exercise a daily routine.

Dogs are natural athletes, and some of them were born to be sprinters. Running isn’t for every dog, but many breeds benefit tremendously from running on a regular basis. Did you know that Weimaraners and Jack Russell Terriers can handle a 10-mile run? Of course you know that Greyhounds like to go for a quick dash, but other pups like Beagles and Labradors love it too. In fact, the list of dog breeds that naturally benefit from running regularly is pretty long. Whether your dog’s breed is genetically built to run, or if you just have an energetic pet who loves to go for a jog, many dogs benefit from running.

Personalized service for every pet, every time.

Here’s how we help dogs thrive and make homes happy.

Pet parents love us almost as much as the dogs!

Our family and dogs rely on Jen. She is completely trustworthy, reliable, flexible and our dog, Roark, loves her and the runs (and he needs running). We recently got another dog, Roxy, in part in knowing we can rely on Jen to look after them when I travel. But the best are the pictures and stories Jen sends after their run. A brilliant service, highly recommended.

Best dog walker I have ever had!! I would highly recommend Run Those Dogs to anyone. Absolutely spectacular on all counts.

Jen has been such a blessing to our family these past 9 months. Ari has enjoyed many trips to the dog park with Jen or runs around the neighborhood on the days when my husband and I have long days at work. Jen is always very responsive to even my most last minute requests. Ari loves spending time with Jen and we love it when she does too….we can always count on a very happy and very well exercised and tired pup!

I have an ever changing schedule and a very active dog – Jen has been extremely accommodating. They are always on time, dogs love them and their feet are cleaned before they come in. I call Jen Ryder’s “girlfriend”. While using her services I got a new puppy.  With puppies come accidents and she quickly corrected the mess. My dogs actually walk better in a leash since in her care!

While it may not be the least expensive, you get what you pay for.  I never worry about my dogs safety or happiness. You won’t be disappointed.

Jen is amazing! I hesitate to write this because I’ve told so many people already and I want them available when we need them! 😉 This has been one of the best service-based businesses that I’ve EVER dealt with!

If you’re looking for personalized professional help with your pups, look no further than Jen at RunThoseDogs. My husband Dave and I have two very high maintenance dogs, Holmes a Weimaraner and Max a German Shorthaired Pointer, who are accustomed to getting 5+ miles of off-leash running a day. We were finding it hard to keep up with the demands, especially in the winter months. When I called RunThoseDogs, my husband and I were both a bit skeptical that we’d find someone who could actually tire the dogs out. Jen quickly put me at ease — she’s a distance runner and I knew right away this wasn’t going to be a typical dog walking service. Jen met with us and listened carefully to our needs, adjusting the timing and schedule to create a personalized program. She takes our dogs on a 60 minute run twice a week and sends me pictures and updates about their outings. I feel like “the boys,” as she calls them, are getting the same care that we would give them. Working with Jen has been great for our dogs and for us — it gives them something fun to do during the day and frees us up a couple of nights a week. We have absolutely loved working with Jen and would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for top quality care for their dogs.

Kate & Dave • North Bend, WA

Jen is absolutely amazing and provides a phenomenal service!  I have never seen my dog take to anyone so quickly.  He is a smaller dog (32 lbs) and climbed right into her lap the first time he met her and snuggled right in.  Then I was gone for the weekend and she took him on the trails and ran him which is exactly what he needed to lower his separation anxiety.   He did have a sore paw and she went above and beyond and doctored it right up and took amazing care of him.   She truly loves dogs and I absolutely knew without a doubt that she had a great connection with him.   She sent photos and reported in each time she was with him.  I felt so good trusting him in her care!  She is a one of kind!  I highly recommend Jen!

Our energetic lab, Ruby, loves the days when Jen comes to take her for a run.  Jen is very professional and knowledgeable, and our dog adores her.  We know we will have a tired and happy dog when we get home from work, and Ruby’s outings with Jen help keep her in shape for weekend adventures with our family.  We are lucky that Jen has made this her business and highly recommend her dog walking / running services.

Jen and Becky are Amazing with our 4 dogs( and cats). We have an abused rescue dog who has fear aggression. Jen and Becky have been nothing but patient with Adele. Adele has gone from hidding in her safe corner to poking her head out the door. The other dogs love the time playing ball and are exhausted afterwards. I would highly recommend. Run Those Dogs

Kelly V • Marysville, Wa

I highly recommend Jennifer to any one that wants the best for their animals. My Jack Russell and English Lab adore all the Run Those Dogs gals. We get daily pictures and updates, they have noticed health issues and notified us, this allowed us to get them to the Vet and start treatment. I will only trust my animals care to Run Those Dogs!!!!!
