I'm a distance runner, 3-6 miles a run.  Are doodles good runners?  I understand like people they would have to learn to run and get in shape to run, but just like people not all dogs like to run.  I have a 14 year old golden that when he was younger, off the leash run all day, put the leash on him and he's board not interested in running any more.

Doodles tend to be athletic dogs.  There is a social website for doodle owners/lovers called doodlekisses.com that you might want to join and post this question there.  I know there a are quite a few members who do run with their doodles, but a discussion there would give you what they have found with their doodles rather than me just saying what I read.

Depends on the dog and the age of the dog I think. Note that all large breeds can be susceptible to hip dysplasia, running would aggravate this. And expecting a 14 year old dog to run 3-6 miles is a bit like expecting your 75 year old Grandma to come with you!
