SOME OF THE MOST SUITABLE BREEDS FOR SPORTSMEN
Labrador Retriever. It is the most popular dog in the world and the favorite of families. They are affectionate, peaceful and very intelligent, ideal as assistance, rescue or therapy dogs, and they also love to play and have fun. He will always be ready to go for a walk or run with you and never seems to get tired. He loves his human or family and will be willing to accompany you on your adventures at all times.
Border Collie. If there's a dog that loves to run, it's the Border Collie. They have a lot of energy to burn, and if they spend a lot of time at home alone they become unhappy and can develop destructive behaviors. You should also know that according to the ranking prepared by the psychologist Stanley Coren in his book "The intelligence of dogs" it is the most intelligent breed.
Dalmatian. Dalmatian dogs require great activity and energy. Fast and highly resistant, they will accompany you on your walks and walks just as in 17th century England they accompanied the carriages of the upper class on their travels. Being easily bored, it requires a lot of attention and stimulation to be a happy dog and a good companion.
German Shepherd. This is without a doubt one of the most popular and loved breeds today. Sociable, playful, balanced, extremely faithful to its owner and very intelligent. If he does a lot of exercise he will control his nerves and he will be happy and affable. He is brave, loyal and a good guardian of the family. If you take him with you to play sports, run or walk, he will keep up with you without problems.
Pitbull. Unfairly known as a dangerous dog, the Pitbull is actually a very protective, patient animal that is ideal for living with children. He has a lot of energy, so he needs to go for a walk several times a day. The ideal is to combine walks with games. A well-behaved Pitbull will be calm, protective and affectionate at home.
Keep in mind that if you have a Pitbull in Spain, as it is considered a potentially dangerous dog (PPP) you must have a license and civil liability insurance, in addition to take him out on the street with a muzzle and leash.
Despite everything said, any dog, of any breed and, of course, , mestizos, can be the best companion for exercise and physical activity if you respect their individual characteristics, adapt to their size and age and care about their health and safety
