I love to be outside. If I’m not running my usual 3-5 miles each day, I’m heading to the park for a workout or to the courts to shoot some hoops. I’m active. I’m also looking for a dog that can keep up with me.

If you’re in the same boat as I, here are some options that are regarded as some of the most active and popular breeds available. With my sources listed below, I searched reputable sites online, along with speaking with local veterinarians and groomers, to discover a wide-range consensus on the best high-energy dogs fit for the most active lifestyle.

Remember, you can find just about any breed through adoption. Save a life!
