Here's how...

qUALITY OVER QUANTITY

  • CRC strives for stellar quality in everything we do and we always want your dog to be happy and comfortable in our care. Not all dogs are thrilled to be with other dogs (especially on leash) and not all dogs run the same pace. Therefore, all runs and walks are one-on-one, allowing your dog to receive undivided attention from an experienced and enthusiastic CRC crew member. This makes for a personalized and safe experience.

  • Your dog deserves the ultimate experience, so we do our best to avoid the hustle & bustle of city sidewalks during runs. If you’re not located within a mile or two of a park or path, no problem! We’re happy to drive your pup to the closest running area. Just ask us about this option!

  • Our time clock starts when the activity starts, not when we first arrive to your home. Rest assured, your dog will be on the move for the full designated service time!

RUNNING BUDDY

  • Dogs come in all sizes, shapes, and running abilities. They're sprinters, marathoners, sniffers, couch potatoes, everything in between, and all of the above. At CRC we celebrate diversity! We are your dog's running buddy, not personal trainer. Therefore we do not drag your dog along to hit a specific pace or achieve a certain mileage.

  • What we do instead is tailor each run to your dog's natural ability and allow them to stop and sniff the hydrants for a minute if that's what they're into. Your dog may certainly experience both physical and mental health benefits from running, but as much as we'd love to, we are not training your dog to compete in the Iditarod. Our main goal is simply to let dogs be dogs, and offer them an opportunity to safely experience the joy and benefits of running!

SAFETY FIRST

  • If you haven't noticed already, we take safety seriously at CRC which is why we are trained and certified in Pet First Aid and CPR and are always asking questions and learning from dog trainers and veterinarians.

  • We always carry a first aid kit and plenty of water while running, and we stop for shade and water breaks as needed. After each run we do an inspection of your dog, especially their paws.

  • We're in tune with your dog and their usual behavior, so you'll be alerted if anything unusual presents itself during or pre/post run or walk.

  • CRC is fully insured and bonded.

about

 

Amber Mack (Founder & President)

I am a native New Yorker, who moved to Brooklyn in 2004. After graduating college with a degree in English, I worked in publishing for 7 years. In 2010 I discovered running...and everything changed.

Running became my passion while training for the 2010 New York City Marathon, with the help of Team in Training (a fantastic cancer fighting charity). A few months after completing the marathon, I left publishing and started working at Finish Line Physical Therapy (an innovative endurance-athlete focused clinic), so that I could immerse myself in the world of health and fitness, and particularly running.

Unlike my passion for running, I was born with a passion for dogs. In 2014, “Dog Runner” became my identity when I moved to Los Angeles with my husband and started working for Paws In Motion (a highly reputable dog running service). I cherished the time I spent on the trails with the Paws In Motion family and shed several tears when it was time to say goodbye to all my furry running buddies!

At the end of 2016 my husband and I moved back to Brooklyn, and immediately I felt incomplete without the dogs, trails, and the passion I had for being a dog runner in LA. After researching available dog care services in New York, I discovered that nothing quite fit the mold or high level of service that I was used to providing with Paws In Motion.

It was clear that I would have to create my own business. Using much of what I learned at Paws In Motion, and putting my own Brooklyn spin on things, in January 2017 Canine Running Company was born. As a result, a whole bunch of city dogs (and their owners) are happier for it!

My personal experience with large dogs, strong breeds, and dogs with extreme behavioral challenges, allows me to maintain confidence and calm with all dogs in any situation. This, along with my ability to completely respect and empathize with animals, (as well as humans!), is what makes it natural for me to go above and beyond for the dogs I care for (and their owners!). And although I've learned a lot from living and working with dogs, I still possess a deep curiosity and desire to know more about their behavior. Whenever possible I assist and/or observe dog training sessions with the fabulous trainer Alison Buehler, of Dharma Dog NYC , to continue my canine education.

My goal for Canine Running Company is to help spread the joy of running to all dogs while maintaining a stellar quality of service for both dog and owner!
