Running with your dog
The minute we got a message from pet groomer Barbearia do Vidal we thought we should shoot a short promo video. Being small and local ourselves, we really enjoy collaborations with other small and local businesses. The message was about a new intelligent (?!) retractable leash for dogs, a product that is perfect for people who like running with their dogs.
Video shooting took place at the Foz district and Leça da Palmeira next to Barbearia do Vidal's small store.
To know all the technical stuff about this Lishinu leash we suggest visiting the store and directly talk to Henrique, a professional groomer and also an avid trail runner (!) You can even try the product and pick the best color to go with your four legged friend's collar or harness. If you feel like venturing out on our running tour of Leça da Palmeira with your dog, then, at the end, you can hand him over to Henrique for a nice bath or hair clip (or both).
Here's the video's final version:
In this video you can have a small glimpse of Foz and Leça da Palmeira district beaches and seaside running paths.
Henrique's hands as he was showing us all the great features of the Lishinu leash. It even teaches the dog by means of an embedded clicker, activated on each sudden strong pull.
The feature we liked most? You get to keep both hands free so that you can swing your arms in a natural way while running.
Special thanks to Alexandra and Helder (Sacha's owner) for kindly accept taking part in this video!
Other leash options
When you decide to include your dog in your running routine, the choice of leash to buy can be a bit overwhelming. It is a piece of gear of the utmost importance to keep control & guarantee safety during your run but you'll probably want to use it in other circumstances too. Moreover, you'll want to make sure your running partner feels comfortable with it at all times.
Here's an amazingly comprehensive article written by our friends over at Your Dog Advisor about dog leashes. We really recommend reading it before you head off to buy one: https://yourdogadvisor.com/leash-options/
Happy runs (in you four legged friends' company)!!
