Is Cairn Terrier Playful?
Wanting to get a Cairn Terrier and need to know whether Cairn Terrier is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Cairn Terrier 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. Some breeds are usually more playful than others.
So, 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 bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, generally 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 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 examine your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
