If you are a car racer, it is quite obvious that one of the things you enjoy most in life is driving. For some, driving can be such a drag. For a racer, however, there is no better feeling than being behind the wheel. If you are looking to go on a drive, whether it is for a short ride or a day-long trip, why not take your beloved furry friend with you? Dogs will appreciate the time spent riding along with you. In addition, they will definitely find it fun to feel the breeze on their faces while you cruise along the road.

Pack the essentials
Whether it is a short drive or a full-on road trip, you need to have the essentials to ensure that your cruise with your dog goes well.

Some auto shows even invite other car owners to display and show off their respective vehicles.

More often than not, these shows only charge a minimal fee for the entrance.

Automobile shows happen multiple times in a year all across the country. If you do a simple search online or check out car-related forums, you can easily find one that is accessible to you. You may even ask some of your friends who are car enthusiasts if they know of any upcoming shows.

There has long been a debate about how car racers are not “athletes” because of the lack of physical activity involved during the race. However, what those from the outside do not understand is that these professional racers need to maintain a training regimen to stay in tiptop shape for races. The inside of a race car is an immensely hot environment, one in which you stay in for a sustained period of time. More than that, the intensity is at 100 percent for the duration of the race and your heart will be beating like crazy. One of the simplest but most effective exercises for a racer is running. To make your run routine more fun, bring your dog along with you. 

Step
1
Find a good running spot
When planning to train with your dog, it is important to find a good spot that has a wide enough space for running. It is also crucial that this area is safe for your dog and other bystanders, especially if your dog is a tad bit protective. It is advisable for you to have a harness and leash for your dog so that you can prevent them from running off.
Step
2
Go on your run
As soon as you choose a running spot, prepare your stuff for the run. Make sure you have some water to keep your dog hydrated throughout the run. Also, check that the harness and leash are secure and that your dog won’t be able to run off from you. Then, start by walking and eventually build up your speed. Remember that you should keep up with your dog’s pace and not the other way around.

Watch Car Races on TV

Another lazy day activity that you and your dog can enjoy is watching television, particularly car racing shows. NASCAR and Formula 1 are quite popular among car racers and during the season, they diligently follow these races, whether live or on TV. If you cannot be there live, cuddle with your pooch while watching how the race turns out. It’s a win-win situation for the both of you – you get to satisfy your pooch while still getting to do what you want, while your dog gets to bond and enjoy your company. 

Racing Video Games

Car video games are the next best thing to actual car driving. Some gaming consoles even offer a full driving setup so that players can simulate actual driving while playing. Spend a day at home and just play some games while your dog watches beside you. 

Conclusion

As a car racer, you are probably always looking for different ways to add more excitement and thrill to your routine. One thing is for sure – you cannot go wrong with having a furry best friend by your side. Dogs were made for fun and amusement and they will enjoy keeping up with your adventure-filled life.
