Kurgo Running Team: Maureen Gillespie (VIDEO)
Posted by Kaitlyn Manktelow on 31st August 2017
Kurgo's running team is based in New England and represents Kurgo by running dog-friendly road races in the area. We hope they inspire everyone to Go Together more with their dogs.
"This dog is my soul mate," Runner Maureen Gillespie says about her pup Zorro, who probably hadn't seen a human before she rescued him.
At first, Zorro wouldn't leave his crate or let Gillespie near him for months. Over time she gained his trust, and after nearly a year, Zorro left the house for the first time. Since then the two of them are inseparable and can be seen running in various canine races (Zorro was the 3rd fastest dog at the last race!).
Check out their inspiring video below, and keep an eye out for more of our Runner Profiles! Interested in joining us for a run? Here is a list of our upcoming Dog-Friendly Running Events.

Why Does My Dog Bark in the Car?
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
Tips for Hiking with Your Dog
Hiking combines all of your pup’s first loves: sniffing, exploring, and spending time with his favorite person in the world—you. You won’t find a more enthusiastic hiking companion anywhere.
