Westipoo's would not make it that far if you are racing. Maybe 1/2 mile.Then Walk 1/2 mi. then 1/2 mi. trot in.

Westipoos are very small dogs, with short legs. Although they are extremely energetic and love to run and play, I would not want to submit our 3 year old to a 5 K run. For them it would be similar to a 15-20 K run, given their short statue and legs. May wish to ask your vet, due to risks of trying to keep up with you. Remember an average stride for a runner is 3-5 feet, making it about 10-12 strides for your little dog! May be too much!
