Have you ever raced your dog through the yard, or watched them run neck-and-neck with a canine pal at the park? Some dogs can really run! But not every dog runs in the same manner, or at the same speed.
How fast the average dog can run depends on breed and body composition. Low-slung, short-legged breeds like Basset Hounds and Dachshunds are a lot slower than long-legged runners like Greyhounds and Whippets.
