How High Can Dogs Jump?

It’s no secret that dogs are some of the most athletic creatures on the planet. They can run at high speeds, change directions quickly, and even jump incredibly high. But just how high can dogs jump?

Well, it depends on the breed of dog and its individual athleticism, but most dogs can jump between two and four feet off the ground. Some breeds, like border collies and jack russell terriers, are particularly well known for their jumping ability and can easily clear five or six feet.

Just take a look at this Whippet dog from Canada that seemed to be been possessed by the spirit of Michael Jordan. Thank you to @winstonthecanadianwhippet for sharing the clip!
