Run Fido Run is the first Mobile Dog Gym in Houston. There's no arguing that Houston is unbearably hot & humid. Now imagine how much worse it is for our four-legged family members. That's why Run Fido Run was born. Our Mobile Dog Gym is climate-controlled and equipped with safe, dog-powered(self-propelled) treadmills specifically made for dogs. Not only does your Fido get to workout at their own pace(be it a leisurely stroll, trot, or full out run), but they get to do it in a safe, cool environment where the risk of heatstroke is greatly reduced. Give us a call and we'll come by with our Mobile Dog Gym and give your FIDO a workout session they'll be sure to enjoy. Let Your Dog Have Fun, Call Run Fido Run!
Reasons To Exercise Your Dog
Just like humans, dogs need a proper and grueling exercise regiment to stay healthy, happy, and in shape, especially working dog breeds. By giving your dog a real workout they'll not only be physically fit, but they'll be mentally fit as well due to the amount of concentration and focus put into each workout session. Most importantly, your dog will be so much happier knowing a task has been completed successfully by them.
Below are a few of the many reasons to give us a try.
No more worry about burnt paw pads from the hot concrete.
Risk of heat exhaustion is drastically reduced.
Quells destructive behaviors like chewing on furniture and clothes or dumpster diving in the kitchen.
Helps with an obese or overweight dog (almost 56% of all dogs in the United States).
It's mentally stimulating exercise for your dog.
Physical therapy/rehab after a medical procedure.
No yard space to run as free and as hard as they'd like to.
Playtime gets too rough with the biting and jumping.
Houston's extremely hot and humid climate is terrible for Brachycephalic breeds (French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Pugs, etc).
There is a famous saying, "A tired dog is a good dog" and it is definitely true, so book a running session for your dog with Run Fido Run and see for yourself. Not only is a tired dog a good dog, but a tired dog is a happy dog too.

About Us and Our Mission
Run Fido Run is the vision of it's Founder and Pack Leader Michael K. In 2019, he had thought about opening a dog gym in a brick-and-mortar location next door to a gym in the Galleria area where people could leave their dogs as they went to get a workout in for themselves, but then Covid-19 hit and all the gyms closed and the realization of a dog gym next door to gym might not the best idea. Being a native Houstonian and knowing how dreadfully hot and humid it gets in Houston, Michael came up with the idea to create Houston's first mobile dog gym and in 2021, Run Fido Run was born.
Run Fido Run has two main goals we're trying to accomplish. One is to get your four-legged family member in optimal shape. Just like us, healthy dogs live longer than unhealthy dogs and keeping your FIDO in peak shape and condition will most likely extend his/her lifespan, which equates to more time y'all get to spend together. Studies also show that dogs that get adequate exercise are happier. It's a win-win for everyone! The other is to support and help local shelters and rescues find furever homes for their residents/fosters. We do this in two ways. We donate a portion of every booked run and we also donate free running sessions to various shelters throughout the week. Feel free to inquire about our long-term goals which are sure to make a wonderful, positive difference in this world and change as many lives as possible, both canine and human.
