Tel Aviv dog lovers held the city’s first ever doggy run, called Dog Day in Tel Aviv, a clip of which was posted online on Tuesday.

Runners included a group of puppies trained to be guide dogs for the blind, who ran alongside their visually impaired owners.

“The dog culture of Tel Aviv is extremely strong,” one participant said. “You move to Tel Aviv and you have to have a dog,” said another.

Anatoli and his pup Shrek were the winners of the 3.5 km race.

Watch a video of the doggy run below:

    So beautiful and touching! I can see and feel the love they have for their pets as we do for our precious Boxer.

    Wonderful video!!! I’ve got my third female sheltie (shetland sheepdog), and I’ve always referred to each one as being my daughter. Our dogs love us in the same manner that we should love Our God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; we are truly blessed by the presence of our pets.
