Is English Setter Playful?
Considering to adopt an English Setter and want to know whether English Setter is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, English Setter 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 usually 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 fun loving. It's essential 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 probably even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, 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 veterinarian analyze 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 generally 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 greeting, and is normally 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 opportunity 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.
English Setter Information
Bred to cover a lot of area when hunting, the English setter is a lively dog that loves to hunt and run. This is especially true of dogs from field lines. If not given sufficient exercise, they can be overly lively inside. With daily exertion, however, they are calm and tractable house dogs. Those from conformation lines are particularly laid-back and gentle and excel with children and less active adults. This is an amiable, easygoing breed that gets along well with children, strangers and other dogs.
