Is Dachshund Playful?
Thinking to get a Dachshund and want to know whether Dachshund is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Dachshund Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we love about canines is their playfulness. But some breeds are usually 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 important to bear 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 remember that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed 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 analyze your canine to make sure there are no underlying conditions before starting any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are playful and typically fun-loving demeanors are definitely 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 generally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have lots 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.
The dachshund is bold, curious and always up for adventure. It likes to hunt and dig, tracking by scent and going to ground after game. It is independent but will join in its family's activities whenever given a chance. It is good with children in its own family, but some may snap at strange children. Most are reserved with strangers. Some bark. The longhaired variety may be quieter and less terrier-like; the wires may be more outgoing. Some miniatures are more prone to be timid.
