2. Focus on Hydration
It’s easy to get dehydrated on a long run, especially if on days when it’s particularly hot and humid outside. That’s why you should ensure you and your 4-legged running buddy stay properly hydrated before, during, and following your workouts.
If you run long distances with your dog, bring a water bottle along for the trek. This way you can prevent your pet from drinking from contaminated puddles and dirty lakes or ponds. Believe me, if he or she is thirsty enough, a dog will drink from almost anywhere and could get sick without a clean water source available.
