Running With Dogs: What You Need to Know
Some breeds are natural runners and obvious choices for running partners. Greyhounds, for example, are particularly fast, while many hunting dogs have amazing endurance. Mid-sized mutts can make fantastic jogging buddies, too, because they aren't prone to some of the purebred hereditary disorders.
Even if your dog is a great runner, don't assume you can just start in with long, hard runs.
