Is Bichon Frise Playful?
Wanting to get a Bichon Frise and want to know whether Bichon Frise is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Bichon Frise Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are normally more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's necessary to keep 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 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.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will affect his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian inspect your pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.

2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are usually fun-loving and playful demeanors are certainly part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, spunky and smart, this breed needs to be entertained - or she'll find a way to delight herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature welcoming, and is normally a boisterous and exuberant breed who will amuse you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have plenty of possibility 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.
