Best Dog Breeds For Runners

Rhodesian Ridgeback

The robust, sharp, independent Rhodesian ridgeback requires a lot of training and has a lot of energy, which makes them excellent long-distance runners.


The Weimaraner, sometimes known as the "grey ghost," is a vivacious breed that enjoys lengthy periods of exercise (and play), making it excellent for trail runners.


From the narrow, streamlined skull to the shock-absorbing pads of the feet, greyhounds are ideally constructed for high-speed pursuit.

Wire Fox Terrier

The active wire fox terrier makes an excellent jogging companion. To be athletic and mentally alert, this breed requires a lot of activity.


A massive, one-of-a-kind Dalmation is vivacious and athletic, with almost limitless energy. Without adequate exercise and mental stimulation, they can get into mischief.

Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan malamute is suitable for cold-weather runs due to its thick coat and stocky build. This sweet, playful sled dog was born to work and enjoy physical activity.


Because of their stamina and hunting experience, many dog trainers believe the sleek, graceful vizsla to be the best dog breed for any runner.

This breed requires 30 minutes of rigorous activity each day, including plenty of off-leash running in warmer climates, on hard surfaces, and over great distances.
