List of the best dogs for running, as ranked by dog breed experts and running professionals. Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than going on a nice, long run through the park, with the cool breeze crossing your face as your feet glide across the pavement. Unfortunately, we live in a world where it can be dangerous to run in almost any area, since there are often muggers and other delinquents looking to do you harm. That’s why many people recommend running with a dog. Not only can your dog protect you from any danger that you may come across during your run, they can also push you to go faster.Plus, there’s nothing like having the company of man’s best friend on a run.

 

If you’ve been wondering, “What dogs are best for running?”this list has all the answers you need. Depending on what sort of runs you like, there’s a different dog for every purpose. Dogs with lots of stamina and long legs, like weimarners and vizlas, are perfect for long steady runs of ten miles or more. Meanwhile, for slower runs, Dalmatians and catahoulas are your best bet.

 

This list has every dog you could ever need for any type of run, whether you are a fast sprinter or prefer long, slow runs. No matter your interests, there’s a canine just for you.
