A dog is a man's best friend, right? Well, for the purpose of this post, a dog is a runner's best friend and here is why:
Friendly, obedient and mentally/physically fast, these dogs are good for speed drills and agility courses.
Their long legs are used to gallop over long distances, so if you're into nature trails and outdoor running, these dogs would be your best partner.
Originally bred as a sled dog, these dogs were built to run long distances, while pulling light loads. If you live in a cold climate, these dogs are perfect because of their thick coats.
The “original” long-distance running dog was once used as a coachman's assistant back in the day. They're active, alert and possess great speed and agility.
Since this breed comes from a herding group, they have high energy and need to constantly be doing something. They will definitely motivate you to go that extra mile.
Frisbee, swimming, hunting, fishing and hiking. What can't this dog do? They're loyal and energetic and basically the perfect option for anyone who likes to stay active.
Agile and energetic, these dogs can run for miles without getting tired. They were, after all, used as hunting dogs in Hungary. Need I say more?
