My Jack Russell has never been much of a runner - maybe up to 5km in his prime.  He now just does a bit of running back and forth at the local oval and that's about all.

Post a photo of your dog.

Itís a rather pissed off Bichon Frise - love that photo, classic Bichon.
Husky never really got going with the running - the heat up here didnt help.
Not supposed to run them over 16 deg C.

How far will they go?  I suppose there are exceptions but my impression is the little dogs (like my JR) usually are more suited to the shorter endurance distances e.g. 5km rather than the much longer runs at which mid-sized dogs seem to do better?

Ran out of likes but loving this thread.

First two pics is our late dog that passed away towards the end of last year. He was a rescue dog with an anxiety disorder so running with him was a challenge, but he loved it. Built up to about 10k along the quieter river paths before his cancer diagnosis.

Second two pics are our current dog - kelpie cross that is also a rescue. Got him young enough we could socialise him to most things - he got to his longest run yet with me last weekend of 15k. Not quite at the same level as yours MalleeGirl, but he certainly thinks he's entitled to come running pretty regularly!

^ love the contrast of those light coloured kelpie eyebrows.  I imagine a kelpie as the kind of dog that would love to run.

Mr Grumpy, the wonky eared french bouledogue.

Each time I scroll past this picture I can't help but think that this french bull dog and bonsai flower would make a great label for a hipster craft beer.  Grumpy dog beer.  I think it would stand out well on the shelf.

My dogs are quite big and would struggle to run a km with me. Think any other dog will last longer than them lol

Most I've managed with Hobbes & Locke (Sheepadoodles pictures above) is about 1km around the block. They go completely insane and keeping them from criss-crossing over each other and creating the perfect high speed trip wire is the ultimate challenge.

That and after about 800m Locke gets tired and drags us all to a halt.

I once tried taking Hobbes out all alone to see if he would be better (he's generally the more active 'alpha' character of the pair) - but I was told on my return never to do it again as Locke had spent the entire time shaking and whimpering with separation anxiety from his brother!


(Yes our dogs are named after 17th Century political philosophers.)

The longest run I’ve taken them on is 8k, although Midnight likes to run in front, then return to me, only to run out the front again so he probably has actually ran further.  Whereas as Bear likes to take it a bit easier and sometimes stops, and waits for us to come back.  They just love it and when I want to do a longer run I bring them home and then drive up the road to trick them so they don’t realise I’m still running!

I take my 'puppies' for a run most days. They are only small though, and like to bounce around a bit. I cant put pics up here of them though or I would get arrested.
