I see a lot of dog pictures on crossfit, so I wonder what kind of dogs folks have, and if they train with them. We have 4 boxers--or they have us, I am never entirely sure. I will take one or two to run, depending on the workout. I can't manage 4 and still train. Thanks, Bill

Dogs can be used as a great substitute when you don't have weights.
Example..

Three rounds for time of:
Run 1000 meters
Lhasa Apso Thruster, 21 reps

Got a greyhound. He used to be a racer but was "Retired" by his owner. We got him from a dog kennel that takes in racing greyhounds after the owners are finished with them.

We have since found out why he was retired...he must be the worlds laziest dog!

I have an Aeirdale pup, about 8 months...already 80 lbs. I took him on the 5k run the other week and he really slowed me up. Had to stop when he pooped in the road, and I practically dragged him the last 400m.

My yellow lab is the world's laziest dog, sleeps at least 16 hours a day (we picked him b/c he was the only pup not running around and biting things). He actually has specific spots to sleep at specific times of the day, gets peeved when you are sitting in one of them. Anyway, he does come downstairs when I workout, I guess mostly for moral support. He is excellent motivation for my jumpstretch sprint workouts and he does put forth some effort on 5Ks, absolutely refuses to even run a 10K (he senses it). Four dogs might be fun in a nice open grassy area for some sprint work.

West Highland White Terrier (a "Westie"), 3 yrs old (small dog, maybe 12-14 inches high at the shoulder, 24 pounds).

She's hell on wheels for 25-50 yards . . . throw a frisbee and just *try* to outsprint her for it.

Not much good after a quarter-mile, though . . .

Andy Petranek works out his dog Lucy with us at Petranek Fitness! LOL!

(family/work safe - video of Lucy working out)

She usually does about 3 miles like that, btw.

My boxer helps me workout by running in circles and licking my legs. My brother's boxer catches frisbees. They both like to tackle me when I do push-ups around them.

Working out with my dog present (lab/shepherd mix) is interesting. He wants to play with me whenever I get started. This play involves wrestling, playing tug of war with whatever equipment I'm using, barking and dancing around me. So, working out with him present is not good for efficiency :-).

I've got 2 dobies, Anika (black/tan female) and Kyros (red/tan male). My fiancee has a Puggle (no pic of him)

I've always wanted to do a pullup with my legs wrapped around Kyros. No such luck. He's 105lbs and I'm 135. ;) I haven't given up yet though. My female is 70 lbs, but too hyper to let me get a good grasp on her with my legs.
