WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR INFORMATION FROM? CORGIS ARE NOT GOOD FOR FIRST TIME DOG OWNERS NOR ARE THEY ALWAYS A GOOD FIT WITH CHILDREN. CORGIS ARE HERDING DOGS THAT NIP AT THE HEELS OF THE FLOCK THEY ARE HERDING, AND YES THEY WILL HERD THE KIDS BY DOING THE SAME. THEY ARE ALSO STUBBORN AND CUDDLE ONLY WITH THEIR CHOSEN PERSON. PLEASE CHECK YOUR INFORMATION ON THE AKC (AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB) WEB SITE. I ADOPT CORGIS THAT HAVE BEEN SURRENDERED BY PEOPLE WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND THEM. I THINK THEY ARE WONDERFUL BUT THEY ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY NOT A FIRST TIME DOG OWNER.

Lakeland Terrier, look them up, handsdown the most active breed I've ever seen. They make the dogs on your list - other then a border collie look like couch potatoes .

What about Brittany's? They're fast and have the energy and stamina to run for hours. But also it depends on what you consider energetic. Do you mean how much energy they have, or how hyper? Because those two things are pretty different. For example: Almosy any herding for sporting breed can run for hours, but not all of them are overly hyper, like how a retriever can be just as happy playing or cuddling. They have energy but aren't hyperactive. It just depends on your definition of energetic. But either way I think britts fit the list.

I have a female Shitz Tsu that is hyper. I think they are active bc thier owners encourage them to be. Lazy owners have lazy dogs.

You also forgot about the Saint Bernards. I've got 4 of them & also 3 Siberian Huskies.

Wow that sounds pretty chaotic. In my experience, saint bernards aren't too hyper, but I can imagine a husky's energy would rub off.

No one mentioned Grand Malinois's cause the writer of article owns a purse dog whom they only think is active, how much trouble can u get inside a purse, lol. Mallies are ON 24/7/365. One of the reasons most police/military forces use them.

How about the Carolina Dog. If you see one at a dog park he will be the fastest one there. The breed is the only native bred American dog. They came across the Bering land bridge 12,000 years ago and many are still wild in South Carolina and Georgia. And boy are they active.
