Lanta and Leander

Ridgeback / 6 and 3
Favorite Post-Run Treat: Beef liver

Lanta and Leander are more than just pets; they’re active companions in an adventure-filled lifestyle. From short runs around the park to extensive hours on trails, these pups are dedicated teammates. Their journey into running began at 10-12 months old, starting with small increments until they were fully developed.

The excitement is palpable as they see their owner donning running shoes or preparing for a trail outing with a backpack. Their routine includes running 4-5 days a week, covering distances ranging from 5 to 16 miles, lasting around one to two hours per day. Southwestway Park in Indy holds a special place in their hearts, the countless miles and memories shared in pursuit of a vibrant and active life.

After a fulfilling run and a hearty meal, the duo promptly settles into a well-deserved nap, recharging their “Ridgeback batteries” for the next adventure. This active lifestyle isn’t just about fitness; it’s embodying the saying that dogs truly are man’s best friend.
