We snowshoe in the winter and train for half marathons in the spring and fall. Would a Shiba be a good running partner? I would have had to drag my last dog, she was not a runner... And I think next time around we'd like a jogging partner.

Shibas are NOT of leash dogs. If they get loose, they can run for days without reatunring to where they got loose.

Shibas are great, but CANNOT be trusted off leash! The minute ours gets loose, he's gone. We've been lucky in that he tends to just run around our neighborhood until he deigns to let one of us catch him. But, another shiba in our town got loose and was found miles away!
