Is Briard Playful?
Thinking to get a Briard and need to know whether Briard is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Briard Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are generally 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 crucial 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 keep in mind 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 examine your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are usually fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely 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 amuse herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark greeting, and is generally a boisterous and exuberant breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have a lot of possibility to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Devoted and faithful, the briard is a loving and protective companion. It is independent, intelligent and self-assured, but it is also willing to please and eager to serve as a partner in adventure. It is reserved with strangers. It can be aggressive with other dogs and may nip at people's heels when playing. It tends to stay at home and may attempt to keep the family's children home as well!
