I want to know how far my JRT can run? I have bewen taking here on 12milers consistantly no problems, but now we are planning a 20 miler and I'm worried for her short term and long term health. She is an amazing runner and she freaks out when we are seperated, so I jsut take here everywhere.

Good for you guys, I wish I could do that kind of running! I run 1 to 3 miles with my Jack. I did some internet research before I started and there isn't a lot out there about running distances with dogs. I think you need to be very careful about watching for the sign of over heating/heat stroke, make sure you have lots of water for her, and that she is still an active/willing participant. And also make sure you are training from 12 to 20 with her and not just throw her into it. There are dog physical therapists and it couldn't hurt to find one and ask about any long term joint damage that could possibly be done.

Check out this cute story I found about a little dog that followed a cycling team for 1000 miles. If this dog could do it I'm sure your Jack will be fine.

Good luck on your run!
