running shoes for dogs
A great way to get dog owners to think about how they should throw their own shoes. They are the ones who put the dog out of its misery.
I have to admit that many times my dog actually has been the one to put me in my shoes. I don’t know if it is because I am a dog owner, or it is because I’m a dog owner who has a lot of dog friends (the latter is what made me think I should put my dog’s old shoes in my closet), but I have found a way to get my dog to do that for me.
If you have dogs, you already know that they like to run with their toys, so why not give them the right clothes to run to? And as for shoes, I think they are the best way to teach them that it is okay to jump on things, not just play with them.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this blog, dogs are very good at doing what I would call “tricks” like jumping onto a toy or putting it down (like in the picture below), but they are not very good at doing tricks when they have been given the appropriate shoes. That makes it harder to get them to do the tricks that you want them to do, that is, you want them to go to the toy and try to jump on it.
The problem with running shoes is that they are designed for humans, not dogs. And dog owners are very picky about their running shoes and about the kind of tread they’ve left on the ground. It’s probably no surprise that dogs and people’s running shoes end up looking very different, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. One of my favorite trainers is a kind of Nike Flyknit dog running shoe, and you can find them at any pet store.
We’re talking about shoes in general, not just trainers, but I think what we’re getting at is that most people think they need hard-to-reach places to put their shoes. And that is a problem with most running shoes because they can’t fit into small spaces, like under a bed or in a closet. People use exercise bikes for that, but they really only work well in the gym or in a park.
I think what were getting at is that the best shoes for our pets tend to be the most versatile. The best dogs trainers tend to be the most versatile because they are the most durable. And they are often the most practical.
That’s because dogs have a lot of room in their shoes. Dogs wear shoes because they are required by law to do so.
But then there are dogs that are quite the opposite of useful. This is because the law is very specific about how dogs must wear shoes. Dogs must wear shoes that are “in good working order” and “not worn and damaged”. And the law is about the most important thing, so dogs can’t wear shoes that don’t fit.
