Is Africanis Playful?
Wanting to get an Africanis and need to know whether Africanis is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Africanis Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we appreciate about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the canine breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's significant to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, usually need lots of mental and physical stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should keep in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed with playing fetch, and there are most likely even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will affect his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a vet inspect your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before starting any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are usually fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, spunky and smart, this breed needs to be entertained - or she'll find a way to delight herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark greeting, and is normally a boisterous and exuberant breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have lots of opportunity to use his strong sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
The Africanis is well disposed without being obtrusive: a friendly dog showing watchful territorial behaviour. The breed is independent and territorial, but highly trainable. They can however, become grumpy as they grow older, and may also become quite difficult when kept with other dogs in a pack.
