Best Outdoor Dog Breeds

Not all dogs are created equally. Some dog breeds hear better, others see better; and some are fluffier and can withstand cooler temperatures. If you are an outdoor enthusiasts who enjoys long strolls outdoors, camping trips, hiking mountains and other active outdoor activities, then consider these outdoor dogs for your next pet: 

  • Alaskan Malamute
  • Australian Cattle Dog
  • Australian Shepherd
  • Belgian Sheepdog
  • Bernese Mountain Dog
  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Great Pyrenees
  • Greater Swiss Mountain Dog
  • Old English Sheepdog
  • Rottweiler
  • Mastiff
  • Norwegian Elkhound
  • Samoyed
  • Siberian Husky

 These 'sled dogs' are great for active individuals. If you plan to keep your dog outside for hours at a time, consider a dog fence to allow the dog to roam freely, get exercise and socialize with domestic animals. However, if you are a pet owner who lives in Pennsylvania, you should familiarize yourself with a new PA pet law for outdoor dogs.
