Fact: Dogs need to run!

We understand that many dog owners in the UAE face weather, space, and time constraints when it comes to properly exercising their dogs. That’s where Dogrun comes in handy!

Conveniently mobile - without the usual problems of public dog parks and hot weather - we come to your location in our temperature controlled mobile dog gym. Our canine fitness trainer will show your dog how to enjoy their treadmill sessions on our specially designed slatmills.  

The slatmill is powered by your dog - it is not electric, so dogs set their own pace and learn to comfortably walk and run – force free. They can stop whenever they like, and are given periodic rest and water breaks during their sessions.

 What do I need to do before the session?

Please do not feed your dog at least 1 hour before the session, and make sure they have had a quick toilet break just before we arrive. 

 

Do I need to be present/at home for the session?

We always encourage owners to be there for the first session, so that you and your dog can get to know the van and equipment – and us! After your dog is comfortable with the session, we are happy to run pups without you at your convenience. Our team will send a video of your dog to your WhatsApp each time they run, so you can stay up to date with their progress, even if you are not around. 

How long does it take for my dog to understand the treadmill?

 

Most dogs find their balance and start to walk consistently within 5 minutes. Our runs are fully supervised and led by our canine fitness trainer who will always be there to give your dog lots of words of encouragement along the way. Each dog is different, and for some it can take a few sessions to feel comfortable with this new type of exercise. Eventually almost every dog will get to the point where they are comfortable to walk and run on the treadmill.
