The 5 Most Athletic Dog Breeds

The 5 most athletic dog breeds range from medium size Brittany Spaniels to the large size Beauceron. Several factors determine the athleticism of a particular breed, including temperament and exercise requirements. Many owners of these breeds are a members of an athletic dog club or involve their dogs in athletic sports to ensure their pets stay in top form. If you have a small athletic dog not included on this list, it is still important to exercise your pet regularly.

Athletic Medium Sized Breeds

Australian Cattle Dogs are high energy dogs that have a herding instinct. This breed needs a lot of room to run, so be sure you have access to a park or greenway if you do not live in an area with a large yard.

Border Collies are another herding breed and will herd everything, possibly including its owner. This dog is extremely energetic and very protective of its owner and family.

Brittany Spaniels are good natured and friendly and can easily be trained to hunt. If you have small children, make sure you supervise them closely because Brittany Spaniels are excitable if not exercised regularly.

Athletic Large Sized Breeds

Beaucerons are protective and loyal to all members of the family, including children. This breed enjoys walks and games of fetch, so give them plenty of it to prevent destructive behavior due to boredom.

Labrador Retrievers are enthusiastic and easy to train. This breed is one of the most athletic and will need daily exercise to prevent hyperactivity.
