According to pet experts, Basset Hound Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we love about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are generally more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the canine breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's vital to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, generally 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 infatuated with playing fetch, and there are probably even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Obviously, 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 vet analyze your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
