Is Azawakh Playful?
Considering to get an Azawakh and want to know whether Azawakh is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Azawakh Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically 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 keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, normally need lots of mental and physical 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 possibly even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will influence his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian analyze your canine to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
