What?! That's ridiculous. The normal walking pace of Jaspar, Leo and Lily (if they are not doing their 'slow walk' for people-speed...) is faster than my brisk walking pace. Most retrievers I know meander along. And how silly -- why a 'white' golden retriever or a 'lab-chow mix' or a 'corgi-terrier mix'? Has someone with a stopwatch gone around following these specific mixes?Self magazine suggests that choosing the right dog breed can help your fitness regimen. If you want to walk at 3 mph, choose a Cavalier King Charles spaniel or French bulldog. For a 3.5 mph pace, go with a miniature poodle, corgi-terrier mix or Yorkshire terrier. And if you want to jog at 5 mph, pick a white golden retriever, Labrador-chow mix or Jack Russell terrier.
One of the silliest things I have seen.
