Is Bracco Italiano Playful?
Thinking to adopt a Bracco Italiano and need to know whether Bracco Italiano is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Bracco Italiano Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we appreciate about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically 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 fun loving. It's important to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, typically need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should keep in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are infatuated with playing fetch, and there are possibly 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 pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before starting any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are typically fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely 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 lots of possibility to use his strong sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Bracco Italiano Information
Braccos are very much a people-loving dog and thrive on human companionship, having a strong need to be close to their people. They are a particularly good family dog, and many have a strong love of children. They get along well with other dogs and pets, if trained to do so - it is, afterall, a hunting breed - and must be taught what to chase and what not to. They are very willing to please as long as they have decided that your idea is better than theirs. Obedience training is a must for a Bracco, and the more is asked of them, the better they do. Harsh reprimands do not work with this breed unless the reprimand is a fair one - and harshness must occasionally be used with some dogs to remind them who is actually in charge. Although not an aggressive breed, many Braccos will alert if there is a reason, and some will bark or growl if there's a good reason. The breed loves to hunt, and they excel at it - in fact, a non-hunting Bracco is not a happy Bracco, and will act out in various other ways. Hunting without a gun (as in NAVHDA - this group does not even allow a handler to carry a gun during trials) is an area in which the Bracco can excel and this can be a great opportunity for training the dog to connect with the owner. They are an active breed, but require more mental exercise than physical exercise to keep them happy. A Bracco owner can teach games like hide-and-seek (an object or person) which fits into the breed's original and current usage, and keeps them mentally active.
