Ali ....  I would say to wait at least until he is a year old to start the coach potatoe to beginner training for him and as the others have said at least 2 years for longer runs
Your vet will be the best one to advise



my cat is hopeless on long runs

Awwww gorgeous pictures.............

.............but my greyhound has just fainted at the idea of running 5 miles let alone 20 miles!

He considers maintaining the appearance of intelligence as per below is quite energetic enough!

I'm convinced that when I run 20km my Oz does at least 30, ranging up ahead of me a hundred metres, coming back to fetch me, running up and down the banks, etc. OH ran Frankfurt marathon with Ozzy's predecessor Snowy - he had actually entered him so the dog had a valid start number and everything, even got his own finisher's medal! We got recognized all over southern Germany due to racing with Snowy, nobody remembered our names but everyone knew him. He even got on TV coverage a few times.

terriers are hunting dogs so yours should be able to run a good long way, pinotnoir.

Me and Marley been in the woods in the rain and mud pools again. He loves getting filthy and fox poo but hates clean soapy water.

My greyhounds must do double the distance of my runs - they're always off somewhere in the woods or fields, not too keen on water though - just a little paddle at the waters edge.

The fantastic thing about greyhounds is despite how much they love to run - they love to sleep even more - thy're known as the fastest couch potatoes going!   It dosen't matter if it's a 5 minute walk or a 5 mile run - they sleep for the rest of the day - perfect pets .

Ditto mud filth and fox poo Nicko ( for the dogs not me)

Yes,  he can run farther than me no problem.

That's one of the reasons we went for an Airedale terrier

He would happily run all day given the chance

Ridgeback Max, I like it! "WE are back in business"

I like the look of him Pinot Noir, he's a cracker!
