Do you have a favorite sport or activity that you love to do with your dog?
I love to snowshoe with my dog Kota. We both are winter lovers. When she was younger, we enjoyed roller blading together. It was fun, but there was quite a bit of training involved… mainly with how to “stop” 🙂 Huskies LOVE to pull and stopping isn’t there #1 priority!
I recently was in search of dogs who do a fun activity with their owners, and I was connected with a local fellow dog trainer and her adorable pup, Emma. Emma loves to run alongside mom while mom skateboards – perfect! Let’s do this!
We decided to meet at a location that was new to me, but comfortable for Emma. I was excited for the graffiti wall! Emma did a great job posing with the wall as a fun backdrop before we got into the action.
Now for the fun! The location was a local “rail trail” that had a nice, smooth path for activities like biking and skateboarding.
I asked Jenny, Emma’s mom, if she would share some tips with us on how she got started with skateboarding with Emma. I’m happy to share this with all of you!

Here’s mom and her best friend! Love their bond!
Thanks for stopping by this week! Let me know if you have any training questions – whether it’s skateboarding or rollerblading with your pooch! Both Jenny Weiss and I are dog trainers north of Boston.
Every now and again I am looking for dog models and people for certain projects. If you have an interest, drop a comment below and I will be in touch with you! Have a great weekend!
