    Mine hits the rev limiter at about 35mph. He’s all about the 0-30 time.

    I can run faster than my Jack Russell. Her legs are only 4″ long and she’s a bit fat so running ain’t her bag, but 10 out of ten for (occasional) enthusiasm. She sounds like a horse galloping.

    No idea of actual speed, but I have a springer spaniel that will run down almost anything in a ball chase.!!

    Chewie is good for 35mph in short bursts.

    Our GWP is 1mph slower than a hare.
    But he is still trying

    Working cocker ; 25mph

    I feel there’s more in him but I’m afraid he might blow a gasket.

    43mph, one of those gps fitness band things strapped to his collar.

    As of yesterday she has been reduced to light jogging interspersed with bouts of hopping.

    When on form she is not unlike a dwarf ,very dangerous over short distances.

    How would I find out his max speed? I’m not gonna clip my Garmin to him?

    Anyway, he’s pretty quick – but too daft to be a danger to anything…

    How fast have you clocked your dog at and how did you do it. Mine only runs really fast racing me on the bike as she refuses to be dropped. Got 27 mph over a couple of hundred meters this morning but I expect there is more if I could pedal faster. She’s an 18 month old vizsla.

    Not as fast at 12 as he was at 3 or 4, but he still tries. Springers are bloody quick little things when there’s something to chase…

    Springers lose out in a long straight run though to dogs with longer legs/strides. They are pretty much unbeatable through the twisty stuff though.

    Rosie the Retriever is 15.5 years old so running is no longer an option for her. But she still enjoys life in a quiet and snoozeful way.

    In her heyday, she was quite quick

    My lurcher is quick but its scary wattching how fast a greyhound can run her down in a straight line, although morecthan 1 has ended up on its arse when she turns!!

    My wife’s uncle reckons his boarder collie during her prime could keep up with his quad bike doing 60 kph when herding deer in NZ. Proper working dog doing it every day. Only has cattle now so no need for speed.

    Our lurcher is very quick off the mark. He was a rescue dog so we’re not entirely sure what he is other than very deerhoundy. Maybe deerhound x greyhound has been suggested. Nothing much catches him for 100 metres or so. Stopping or changing direction however he is less skilled at.

    43mph! That would make it worth 400 grand a year as a greyhound stud dog…

    Shame we took his nuts off then. (For weight, aerodynamic and temperament reasons.) When we got him sight unseen we were told he was a crossbreed but it turns out he’s a very classy Sloughi/Saluki desert racer. Needs a good run up to get his top speed and our neighbours’ Italian Greyhounds and Bedlingtons are both much quicker from a standing start. He’s getting old now and a bit creaky so chooses his races carefully. Usually ignores the pointy dogs now and razzes the fat labradors trying to get them to chase him.

    Dont know but she was easily keeping up today down Cutgate and onto North America.
