Summer is one of the best moments of the year to go for a ride, but you don’t want your dog to be staying home alone while you are having a good time outside in the sun! Therefore we encourage you to ride your bike along with your faithful companion, taking into account the advice which we are about to give you.
Did you know that cycling makes you burn 110 kcals in 20 minutes? For that reason, it is a very healthy activity which requires little effort, as it is up to you to decide on the pace and distance that you deem appropriate. The same goes for your dog, whose physical condition is to be taken into account before embarking on the ride!
The breed and age are the two main factors that you should keep in mind. Whereas some dogs are highly energetic and will love the ride, others not so much. Besides, burning calories also helps dogs to remain fit after a long winter.
Remember that in order to enjoy your doggy bike ride, you must avoid high temperatures. Thus, do not go for the ride at the hottest time of the day, or else your dog could suffer from a heatstroke. Also remember to bring water along with you to cool down your pooch.
What’s more, if your dog is one to pull the leash, there are various bike tow leashes available on the market that could come in handy for you. They consist in clip-on metal bars to be fastened onto the bike frame, easy to attach or remove to suit your needs.
Dog agility was born in 1977 in England at the Crufts Dog Show. The idea stemmed from creating a show jumping event for dogs to keep the audience entertained during the intermission, and since then it hasn’t stopped attracting fans.

Dogs are man’s best friends, especially sportman’s bestfriend! Indeed, practicing sport is the best way to create unforgettable and ludic memories with your faitful partner, and it’s still the best alternative to keep fit!
Practicing sport with your dog is far from being a constraint, but a pleasure for him and you! Our doggies will never complain to have aches or be lazy 😀 on the contrary, they will be more energic than every of your friends and will transmit you this motivation, to put your sneakers on and keep the smile during the effort!
Gudog lets you (re)discover ludic, sport and fun activities to do wwith your dog:
The running surely is the most popular activity for man and dogs! This sport is accessible to everyone and can be practiced whenever and anywhere (be careful to the heath during summer). If you bring your dog to the park regularly, stand by him to wait for you every sunday morning, even if you are the laziest person in the world!
Kayaking is a summery sport, but it tends to be very enjoyable for your dog when the heath is too uncomfortable. If you have a little dog, you can put him at the front of the boat, and if he’s bigger he can stay next to your feet 🙂 However, your dog must be used to the water and turbulences.
This is a sport for tough and agile people. An excellent way to burn calories with your dog 🙂 However, you must be a true expert because the walk can finish in a complete desaster! It’s safer if you stay in a non-crowded place, with no cars and not to much people.
The ball toss
Throwing the ball to your can prove to be a perfect excuse to practice fitness! In fact, Gudog proposes to you to mix the fun and the sport. When your dog is running to catch the ball, make streches, squats, etc, or even run faster than your dog and try to catch the ball before him!
Some dogs are as talented as International players, thanks to the agility! When your dog will have all the techniques to stop a goal or dribble the ball, you’ll spend unbelievable moments with him, practicing your favorite sport!
What are you waiting for to teach him all these activities?
