Described as "versatile Continental hunting dogs," weimaraners make great long-distance running companions. Their long limbs make them natural runners and their short coats allow for warmer conditions.

 

3. Goldendoodle

The loyal and smart goldendoodle–a mix of the family-friendly golden retriever and the graceful poodle–is a great running partner for medium-distance runners. Their strong desire to please, as well as their natural athleticism and affinity for water, make them easygoing partners.

 

4. Standard Poodle

The affectionate, and often misunderstood, standard poodle is an outgoing (and hypoallergenic) dog that loves to run. Its name is derived from the German "pudelhund," which roughly translates to "splashing dog," as it was originally bred as a water retriever.

 

5. Vizsla

Though not a common breed, Vizslas make excellent endurance-running partners. Built for speed but agile enough to tackle tricky trails, the gentle but robust breed is a great choice.
