So you love to jog, walk or hike and want a furry companion to come along for the adventures
that surely await you. Then you need to check out these top 10 most energetic dogs breeds that
would love to be your bff (best furry friend).
The Siberian Husky
Known as a sled dog, this canine is adventurous, intelligent and is generally loving to all people
and the other family pets. If you live in an area that has some frosty winter months, the Siberian
Husky has no problem dealing with this kind of climate. In fact, its double coat protects it against
the chilly air, so now all you have to bundle up to enjoy those long walks or jogs with this beauty.
This dotted breed may have gained popularity through the animated Disney feature, 101
Dalmatians, but its clever personality and willingness to please has made it a beloved family pet
for decades. Since this dog was bred in England to run alongside and clear a path for horse
drawn carriages it has retained the need for consistent exercise. If you’re looking for an eager
and willing jogging partner, the Dalmatian may be your dog.
The Miniature Pinscher
They say “good things come in small packages” and the Miniature Pinscher is no exception.
Originally bred in Germany to hunt vermin, this determined little dog looks like a mini me version
of the Doberman. It is spirited and confident and loves to investigate every inch of its
surroundings. When it comes to being active, the Min Pin has a non stop supply of energy, so get
ready for lots of fun romps with this little guy.
The Airedale Terrier
Interestingly enough, Airedale Terriers were used in World War I as a messenger, sentry, scout,
ambulance dog, ratter, sled and guard dog, as well as a Red Cross casualty dog. The loyal and
brave personality that made them invaluable at this time, has also made them a perfect breed for
those that enjoy a challenge. The Airedale needs to be exercised and has a lot of stamina so you
don’t have to worry about out jogging this breed.
The English Springer Spaniel
The English Springer was originally bred to be a gun and hunting dog, to flush or “spring” game
from a field. For this reason it excels at agility, tracking, hunt tests and obedience trials, so you
know he’s going to make a great jogging companion. When this guy isn’t taking you for a walk, he
loves the attention of his human family and might even show you his sense of humor.
The Jack Russell Terrier
A little bundle of energy and intelligence is what you can expect from a Jack Russell Terrier.
When he’s not being active, he can be charming and affectionate. Originally bred in England
around 200 years ago, this breed loves to chase smaller pets (so watch out if you have cats). In
addition, as per the Terrier breed, the Jack Russell can be a bit stubborn when it comes to
training and may not be the best choice for first time dog owners.
The Border Collie
Taking the prize as the “most intelligent” breed of them all, the Border Collie is known for its
innate ability to herd. In fact, this dog breed was widely used in both Scotland and England for
this very purpose. Today this lovable pooch has unlimited energy which allows it to excel not only
with those pet parents that love to run, but can succeed at fly ball, agility courses and flying disc
The German Shorthaired Pointer
Known as a versatile hunting dog, the Pointer loves to retrieve from bodies of water and will be a
blast for those that enjoy being at a beach or just vigorous exercise. This breed is intelligent and
not only craves mental stimulation, but demands it. His short coat is extremely easy to care for,
so you will have more time to spend having fun.
“The Silver Ghost” was a highly sought after dog in it’s native Germany, as it excelled at being a
gun dog and having the ability to handle large prey such as deer, wolves and bear. Today the
Weimaraner may not indulge in the hunt as much as it once did in the past, but it does make a
wonderful family dog. A typical dog of this breed is fearless, friendly, obedient and alert and loves
to go for long runs with its favorite human.
Coming in three convenient sizes for any pet parent, the Poodle is one of the oldest dogs breeds
around today. Although, it may be thought of as just a foofoo pooch, this breed is extremely
hardy and intelligent. It loves to run and play and will even show you his goofy side when things
get really fun.
Take the Leash and Go!
Any of these dog breeds would be happy to be your constant jogging companion and will be
there rain or shine to enjoy the adventure. And remember Lishinu is a great way to enjoy all those
moments on the run with its hands free feature and no fuss, quick tug locking mechanism. If you
haven’t already gotten one, you’re missing out on all the convenience and dog safety features so
many pet parents are already enjoying.
