Is Akbash Dog Playful?
Looking to adopt an Akbash Dog and need to know whether Akbash Dog is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Akbash Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about dogs is their playfulness. Some breeds are normally more playful than others.
In the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's significant to bear 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 probably even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will sway his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet analyze your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.

5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have loads of possibility to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
