According to some questioning done by The Clymb, the best dog breeds for hiking are as follows: 1. Bernese Mountain Dog (strong, smart and can withstand the cold!) 2. Rhodesian Ridgeback (smart, can handle rough terrain and high temps) 3. Australian Shepherd (high energy, touch terrain, high obedience) 4. Alaskan Malamute (can do snow and cold, have huge paws, strong) 5. Vizsla (strong swimmer, can't handle cold well) 6. Labrador Retriever (love the outdoors, need exercise so great to take out) 7. Portuguese Water Dog (love water and are very obedient) What do you think of this list?
