No. 5: Australian Cattle Dog

Do you find it hard to sit still? Would you rather spend your time running and playing and working outdoors instead of lounging at home on the couch? If so, you may have met your match in these breeds. We polled 122 veterinary experts to get their opinions on which dog breeds are the most energetic. Here are the five that received the most votes!

The Australian Cattle Dog, who hails from Oz, is also known as a Blue Heeler or Queensland Heeler. He can be a tough herding dog and is often known for impressive endurance. That's a fantastic trait if you're looking for a biking or running buddy or planning to work or compete with him, but it's a little more problematic if all you have time for is a short exercise session with him each day, because that endurance also means he could have some energy left over for destructive behavior.
