3 Of The Best Dog Breeds For Fitness Enthusiasts!

There can certainly be no denying that dogs make for excellent companions, but when it comes to choosing the right dog for you, it’s vital that you take your lifestyle into account before bringing your new furry friend home.

For those of you who love nothing more than keeping fit and getting as much exercise as possible, it makes perfect sense to pick a breed that ties in well with this interest so that you and your new pal can spend lots of quality time together. Choosing a breed that loves nothing more than curling up on the couch for hours at a time might not be the best fit!

So, with that in mind, here are some of the best breeds out there for anyone who lives for health and fitness. Which of these will you be bringing home?

Border collies

If it’s a high-energy pooch you’re looking for, then a border collie would be an excellent choice. These pups will need at least 90 minutes of exercise each day so make sure that you’re able to provide this before making your ultimate decision. 

If you can deliver on this front, however, you’ll have a dog that can run for miles and keep you company no matter what. In fact, you might struggle to keep up with them!


Weimaraners are very high-energy dogs and were originally bred to retrieve large and small game alike, so they’ll go all day and you’ll find it hard to tire them out. Give it your best shot - if you dare!


One really popular breed at the moment is the Hungarian vizsla, a really active dog that will need lots of exercise and is sure to keep you on your toes. Not only are they big fans of being out and about, they also love training and learning new tricks and they’re intelligent, affectionate and loyal - so a really wonderful breed of dog, all in all.
