Fitness Trainers for Dogs?

Running Paws, a specialized dog running company in New York, will run your dogs for you to get them in shape. Located on 61st and 1st near the Queensboro Bridge, Running Paws is a company that saw a need and filled it. Seth Chodosh opened the business while job hunting. In his free time, he would jog with a friend's dog and loved it so much, he decided to turn it into a company.

Of course owning a dog in the Big Apple is not the same as having one at a house on the prairie. You don't just open your back door and let your dog out to roam or go to the bathroom. A trip outside can easily take ten minutes just to get out of the building. This means that if you have an active dog that needs a lot of exercise and play, you either need a lot of time, or a little help. Rates for dog running range between $23 to $35 per half hour, depending on frequency. Running Paws employs 20 dog runners who combined run, walk or play with roughly 100 dogs a day. According to Chodosh and his manager, Joshua Stine, they say that business has been great and seems to be recession proof.

Yes, it is true that Susie, the girl next door, can walk your dogs for you and you pay her $10 for the day. But this isn't your normal dog walking. Dog runners from Running Paws are true runners that demand all they can get from your dogs.  Just like a personal trainer, they can help keep your dog healthy, tone and build your dog's muscles, or help him lose weight.
