Hello,

Can miniature size poodles make good running partners for short slow jogs?

We have not yet decided if we should get a standard or miniature. I lean towards the standard because I know that it could jog with me in the morning.

But I read that miniatures make fair jogging partners. I don't go long or fast. When I used to run with my step-daughters lab it just seemed to walk fast. The typical run I would want to do with my dog is only 2-3 miles - at a snail pace. I know of course that any dog would have to become accustomed to running and get into shape.

My wife says get either, but I think she might be leaning towards a mini.

Any comments would be most appreciated!

A miniature will be able to jog fine... just not for very very long periods of time.
Are your sure? I just read about a miniature poodle that has run in 30 mile races with its owner. Its name is JIB. You can google that name with the word poodle and you will find the site.

Does the breeder in Sacramento you know breed miniatures? Please let me know.
