Just got back from the park. Playing some fetch and I would clock her on the way out. Her highest was 26 mph, but she was usually between 18-22 mph. I wouldn't want her chasing me!

I always thought my girl was really fast, she loves to chase any dog running and take them down on the run, until a greyhound came to the park, that dog was fast as the wind that was the first time I saw my girl frustrated and give up the chase...

LOOVED my adopted grey -would beat any GSD but probably would never come back.Some GSD would not come back but I bet MORE greys would not and more GSD would.Different breed love them both --GSD ahead in wanting to relate with skinpeople.

this springer mix that I bike instead of walked was clocked at 30MPH, it is cool but gets pretty scary.

I borrowed it from a Coach at my school.(I teach) I wouldn't consider it Police grade so it may be off by a few +/-.
I thought she would be faster and push 30. She's almost 8. Maybe when she was younger.

True, but I'll give Bolt a 10 yard start and I bet Lenny drags him down at 20 yards... well, if we trained schutzhund.

Wierd thought but wonder-Can YOU run faster than your dog? Might have beat 3 out of 8 in my dogs/as looking back.All 3 I beat were small/lazy-not into competition.

A dog reaches top speed much faster than a human. So, long range with a fast person, yeah. You would have trouble getting away from one out of the box I would think. If Lenny is running 26mph there is no way I'm catching her. Good thing she has a good recall.
