The best running buddies

We’re heard it all before, “this year is the year” and “new year new me”, but getting healthier and fitter can often be tough. So what better way to help that habit stick than a new running buddy - a furry, four-legged friend to help you along the way and start helping you get into shape. We can’t provide the running gear but we can help you figure what dog would make the best running partner. So start warming up and here are the dogs that would love to join you once you’re done.

German Shepherds

Doggy member Ceaser

Their strong body allows them to run for 10 miles or more at a time. They love working and playing and are always up for exercise. Learn more about German Shepherds here.

Siberian Huskies

Doggy member Rory

They have the endurance for both long and cold-weather runs. Running helps them to release excessive energy. Learn more about Huskies here.

Australian Shepherds

Doggy member Louna

Aussies love wide open spaces and can run for long periods of time. Their tremendous energy requires 2-3 hours of daily exercise. Learn more about Australian Shepherds here.

Border Collies

Doggy member Puppy

With boundless energy, Collies make running look effortless. This working breed needs a daily challenge to keep them happy. Learn more about Border Collies here.

Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Doggy member Maya

These athletic dogs have an amazing amount of stamina. They’ll help you work up a sweat by being a consistent running partner.
