The Best Dogs for Runners
Are you an avid runner looking to adopt a new dog? We’ll go over some of the dog breeds that make the best running companions.
Australian Cattle Dog: The Australian Cattle Dog is a high-energy, agile breed. These dogs require plenty of daily exercises and make for great running partners.
Labrador Retriever: This loyal breed is eager to keep up with their person. Plus, they’re lean and sturdy and can hold their own during a run.
Siberian Husky: Bred as sled dogs, Siberian Huskies are built to run. Long distances and high speeds are nothing to them. If you live in a cold climate and love to go for long runs through the snow, this is the breed for you.
Jack Russell Terrier: This small but mighty dog is surprisingly energetic and will happily accompany their owner for a brisk jog.
Vizsla: This beautiful breed is fast and athletic. They require plenty of exercise and taking them for a run is a great way to burn off some excess energy.
Australian Shepherd: This herding breed loves to run! They are active and adventurous, great for any trail runners out there looking for a dog to accompany them.
Border Collie: Much like the Australian Shepherd, Border Collies are bred with speed and agility in mind. They make for excellent running companions.Interested in learning more about your dog? Find out how dogs “sweat” and why dogs like to sleep in the bed.
