🐕 How fast can your pet run?

Speed of the Hounds

🐕 How fast can your pet run?Ever wanted to discover how fast your pet can run? Here's your chance!Several new dogs have joined the Voyager family over the past little while, including Arlo the ex-racing greyhound and Winnie the jack russell puppy. Considering their size difference (see video), we thought it would be cool to calculate how fast each of our doggos could run using some simple physics. Because speed = distance/time, all we needed to know for this experiment is how far our pet ran, and how long it took them. Check out the video below to discover just how fast our furry friends were, and check back this afternoon for some Discovery chalkboard calculations!You too can try this at home! It doesn't have to be a pet - it might be a soccer ball along the ground or even you! We'd love to hear about your discoveries, share your findings in the comments below. Want to play along at home?
