At some point as a family, we’d love to own a dog. However, just recently, I learned that I’m allergic to dogs. So I’ve been on the hunt for a hypoallergenic breed that can also handle running, because I’d love a new running buddy!
So far, I’ve come up with three breeds that seem to fit the bill.
1.) Wheaton terrier: “The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a great dog for hiking, traveling, jogging or just going for a walk around the park,” says TerrificPets.com. “Without regular exercise the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier can become somewhat jumpy and hyperactive although this is relatively uncommon. The breed can be kept in a kennel for brief periods of time if necessary but is typically well behaved when left alone in the house after they have been fully trained.”
2.) Standard poodle: According to DogBreedInfo.com, the standard poodle thrives on exercise (at least daily walks). “The Standard retains its sporting instincts, has great stamina, and needs more activity than the smaller varieties.”
3. Vizsla: “Vizslas are great running partners! They are built for running and being active. But I paid attention to the vet’s recommendations, and held off running with Captain til he was about a year old,” says vizslathing.blogspot.com/.
