20 Best Dogs For Runners
3. Labrador Retriever
It feels that like Labs always end up on any list of the best dogs for pretty much anything and it should come as no surprise that they made this list as well. This lean but sturdy breed is famed for its energy (among other things) and it is quite natural that they also make excellent running companions.
Besides being energetic, labs are also considered to be very eager and willing to help, which ensures they will always be ready to join you for a run. They approach this with a very special combination of the will to work and the pleasure that comes from spending time with their owner.
Another great thing about Labrador retrievers is that they do not mind harsh weather, which will make them suitable for accompanying you on a run even if it is raining or if it is particularly cold.
