How Fast Do Labrador Retrievers Run?


On average, Labrador retrievers have running speeds between 14 to 18 miles per hour. However, this depends upon the weight and health of the dog.

Labrador retrievers have an incredible muscle and body composition that provides them with the ability to play and run at great speeds. At a speed of 14 to 18 miles per hour, Labrador retrievers provide excitement when playing and running alongside a companion.

Other dogs can hit much higher speeds than the Labrador retriever. The fastest dogs are greyhounds. Other fast dogs include the vizsula, dalmatians, whippets, and Jack Russell terriers, the Borzoi, the Weimaraner and Doberman pinscher.
