Many of you ask, if you can jog with a Papillon, or Phalene.
Look at yourself first; establish the level of your fitness program.
Are you running long distance, or just a mile or two, here and there.?
Toy breeds are not for long, or endurance running. Think how small they are, and those little legs!!
And have a look at the Papillon, or Phalene, you already have. Does he weigh only 4 LBS, is he one of those ever wanted tiny sizes? Not suitable!!! Not all Papillons are agile, fast, and fit. Just like people.
But if you enjoy jogging 2-3 times per week for a couple of miles, you may be able to train your Paplloni to come along,- on a cool day.
Start with small distances, bring water for him, and observe how he performs.
He will give you all the signs after a few times, whether he is, or will be "fit" for this.
Papillons, Phalenes come in sizes between 8-11 inches (AKC breed standard). Get a larger puppy, with a little more weight, and heavier bone structure.
High energy breeds, work breeds, such as mid size of 40-50 LBS are the best for runners.
