Depending on how out of shape your dogs are would really determine how much you should do, I road my dogs, they usually road about 10-15 mph, I would suggest you road them 5-7 miles, every other day, then gradually increase distance and turn it into everyday

Ruttin,
Gatomans answer is a good one. You need to be careful though not to blow the pads off their feet. Might want to check their feet after the first few times you run them. Good luck and keep us informed on how your doing.
