I've never met a GSP that didn't love to run.

Goldendoodle - in all seriousness.

My wife has allergies like crazy, and we compromised with a mid-sized, low shedding, fun-loving tweener. I've been running almost daily with him since he was 3 months old, off a leash from the get-go. Retriever type instincts, top-tier intelligence, and rock star hair. Not great with the Arizona heat, but loves the water and trails, and overall is a very athletic and happy breed.

With your caveat of 20 miles/week with 4-5 miles sessions I would pay careful attention to WHERE you run. If you're running purely on pavement and the dog can't run on anything but pavement you run the risk of pounding his or her joints to pieces. Make sure that they can run on bare ground, lawns, ditches, etc. to protect their joint health. Lucy has the most fun trail running with me. It's an absolute ball!

Well, I have a GWP, smooth coat, handsome as can be; loves people, dogs and to run--I have a pic of him from my ATV including the speedometer showing 18-20 mph at mile six and he's 50 yds ahead.

If Photobucket would quit jackin' the picture-posting process around, I'd throw it up here.

In warmer seasons I run with him and while I'll do four or five miles, he'll double that by going back and forth, side to side on the country roads we run on. I do run him with a collar to control him a bit because, though he is very obediant, he can get carried away with the enthusiasm a five year old pointer has. He looks like a GSP having short hair but it's dense and does shed a ton.
