Default Running with dogs

So, I've decided that I'm going to start running again. I used to do triathlons, but no longer. I have two dogs that I thought I would rotate through on runs.

Well, after one week I can report this: My dogs are not good running partners.

Dog #1 - Hound dog. Poor choice. I kid you not, he lays down at every stop and tries to go to sleep. Being a hound, he will every now and then catch a smell and tear after that, rather than running with me.

Dog #2 - German Shepherd Mutt. She is... well... a "special" dog. Always happy. Always oblivious. Definitely NOT focused. Running with her I ended up tripped and wrapped up in her leash 3 times. Seriously. Plus, at the end of the run, when I'm sweaty and can't breath, she's bouncing and not ready to stop. It's embarrassing.

Maybe I'll just get a chihuahua or something and carry it. That would work, right?
Winner, Winner: Chicken Dinner!

Get a greyhound from a rescue operation

They'll ALWAYS run with you, are super loyal, very snuggly dogs because they've been beaten, abused and neglected their entire lives, and run at whatever speed you want them to run at instead of the speed they want to run at. Not exactly very good guard dogs, but you know. Can't win 'em all!
