Running Paws, Inc. - The Evolution of Dog Walking Reaches 100th Client
Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons
NEW YORK, NY - October 12, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Running Paws, Inc. (www.runningpaws.com) the country's first dog jogging service hits its 100th client. Founded in early 2003 as an alternative to "dog walking," Running Paws based in New York City, currently has 15 full-time runners. Established on the simple principal that dogs require exercise in order to maintain good health, Running Paws has had success with dogs that are energetic, hyperactive, overweight, in need of physical rehabilitation, and who love to run.
"If a dog does not get adequate exercise (more than you might believe), this instinctive energy will build up and demand an outlet, such as: chewing the couch, indulging in excessive barking, or other obnoxious behaviors. For these reasons, I'm endorsing this new concept from Running Paws Inc. Exercise is the best way to control behavioral problems, promote cardiovascular fitness and keep your dog's weight in check."
-- DR. JACK BURKE, Chairman of Mercy College School
of Veterinary Medicine & Veterinarian for over 30 years.
"RUNNING PAWS Inc. has put together a fitness plan that is a terrific service . They will be able to assist with pet behavioral problems and help pets obtain a healthy active lifestyle that dogs truly need. Dog's are natural athletes and unfortunately they can't simply tell you they need to go for a run. Exercise, a healthy diet, and love are the keys to a happy and loyal pet."
-- STEVE DILLER, President of the Society of North American Dog Trainers and founder of the Center for Applied Animal Behavior & Canine Training. He is the author of DOGS AND THEIR PEOPLE.
"Our mission is to provide urban dogs with the daily exercise they require to enhance their health, happiness, and overall quality of life," says Running Paws Managing Partner and Dog Fitness Specialist, Joshua Stine.
"We have done a lot of research into the exercise needs of many dog breeds and we consistently find that most of the dogs living in our city are not getting close to enough exercise to maintain a healthy life," added Joshua.
"I originally thought this program would be filled with Labradors and Golden Retrievers," said Running Paws Founder Seth Chodosh, also a Dog Fitness Specialist, "but we have many toy breeds such as Chihuahuas and Yorkies. It's a funny sight, but little dogs love to run too."
