Is Australian Shepherd Playful?
Wanting to get an Australian Shepherd and want to know whether Australian Shepherd is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Australian Shepherd 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. But 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 essential to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, normally need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should remember 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.
Obviously, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will sway his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian examine your canine to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.

2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are generally fun-loving and playful demeanors are definitely part of it.

4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature greeting, and is normally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will amuse you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have lots of opportunity to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
