Is Beagle Playful?
Looking to own a Beagle and need to know whether Beagle is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Beagle 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.
In the spirit of a good time, we scoured through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's vital 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 infatuated 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 influence his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet analyze your canine to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are playful and normally fun-loving demeanors are definitely part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, smart and spunky, this breed needs to be entertained - or she'll find a way to entertain herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark welcoming, 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 plenty 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.
One of the most amiable hounds, the beagle was bred as a pack hunter and needs companionship, whether human or canine. It loves to explore the outdoors and is an enthusiastic trailer. Given adequate exercise, it is a calm, tractable house pet. It is an excellent child's dog, gentle, incredibly tolerant and always ready to join in a game or an adventure. It is an independent breed, however, and may run off if a trail beckons. It barks and howls.
