Which breed of dog is naturally athletic? That isn’t really a simple question to answer. Athletic dogs come in a variety of sizes and types. Others are huge and brawny, while others are small and fast. It’s like comparing apples to oranges when it comes to dog breeds. However, certain breeds are more naturally inclined to athletics than others. Let’s take a look!
This rather intimidating-looking dog is noted for its sharp mind and fearless, self-assured temperament. The German Shepherd, with its powerful, muscular body, is capable of intensive exercise and does not tire easily.
Don’t forget about the dogs that aren’t purebred and have their own bloodlines. Mixed-breed dogs of all shapes and sizes have a lot of energy and enjoy having fun. This breed of dog is more than likely to become your lifelong buddy, eager to accompany you on any excursion.
Labrador Retrievers are the most popular dog breed, which is unsurprising given their truly athletic temperament and extroverted personalities. Oh, and being members of the sporting group, they’re known for being an incredibly active breed that enjoys a variety of activities ranging from swimming to a good old game of fetch.
The marathon runners of dog breeds, Siberian Huskies, are known for their athleticism. They were the first breed used in the 408-mile All-Alaska Sweepstakes race. So, yes, they have the ability to sprint quickly and far. The Siberian Husky is an enthusiastic, lively dog with incredible stamina!
The Dalmatian is a high-energy, activity-loving dog. One of its first jobs was to pave a route for horse-drawn firefighting wagons and guide the horses to the fire. Keeping up with an animal more than twice your size must be difficult, but the Dalmatian is clearly a very fit puppy.
