Most athletic dog breeds

Athletic canine breeds.

If you are looking for a jogging or biking partner, you could consider choosing from this list.

This is a list of high stamina breeds. These dogs were born to run. They are not racing dogs.

They enjoy and need long runs and plenty of exercise.

Getting a dog is a big commitment so if you are not prepared to go out almost everyday for at least one hour of fast walking, jogging or biking do not get a dog from this list.

These breeds absolutely need to get a good jog on a regular basis. When they do not get the proper exercise, they develop bad habits because of boredom.
