Thought I'd reach out and see what I got on this- anyone have advice on the following?
My husband and I are both runners and eventually want to take Captain with us when we got out to get our exercise too. We've been cautious so far since I've read about waiting for growth to complete, and because the primary place we run is along the sidewalk on the Embarcadaro. Captain is just over 8 months old and we've taken him with us on a few short runs - all under 3 miles, but on pavement- starting at maybe 6 or 7 months- but is it too young to start? I was trying to be conservative and just do 2-3 mile runs a couple times a week, but I don't want to put him at risk for bone & joint problems later. So when is it officially safe to run with them? And I assume, no matter what, they shouldn't be running on concrete all that often no matter what the age, right? (ps- these runs are in addition to daily trips to the park, playing, walks, hiking on weekends etc)
Advise away, readers! And thanks in advance for any input.
