Topic - most 'mountain friendly' dog breed

ti.williams - on 04 Dec 2012
Which dog breed is best for general mountain friendliness is something I've been curious about for a long time now. What I mean by 'mountain friendly' is being fit enough and keen enough for long days walking - possibly multi-day and camping - and also able to take cold (ish) and harsh conditions, but whilst still being a nice tempered friendly pet.

When I was younger my family had a border collie which was a lovely dog who was incredibly fit and used to run with my mum most nights, and not inconsiderable distances as she ran marathons frequently. He also came out with us on long hill walks, however he wasn't really subject to particularly harsh weather conditions.

Can anyone shed any light on this or share their experiences with their dogs?
