Safety When Rollerblading with Your Best Friend

Monday, April 25, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

Rollerblading is a great activity to do with a high energy dog but it’s important to follow some safety guidelines.  If it’s hot outside, don’t roller blade midday.  Head out in the cool morning and be sure to bring along some fresh water for both you and your pet. Wear protective gear such as a helmet and knee pads and keep your dog on a short leash to keep him from crossing in front and tripping you up.  Go at a comfortable speed, one that the dog can comfortably maintain and work up to longer distances slowly. Try to find a paved path with a dirt or grassy edge for the dog to run on.  This will be easier on his joints and paw pads.  Remember, give him lots of praise as he’s trotting along and stop when he’s had enough.
