Is English Shepherd Playful?
Looking to adopt an English Shepherd and need to know whether English Shepherd is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, English Shepherd Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we love about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are normally more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the pet dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's significant 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 bear 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.
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 initiating any exuberant activities.

2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are typically fun-loving and playful demeanors are certainly part of it.

4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark welcoming, and is normally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will amuse you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have loads of opportunity to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
English Shepherd Information
The English Shepherd temperament is the defining characteristic of the breed, with high intelligence and often a unique type of kindness for those in his home, both animals and people. The English Shepherd is often an independent worker. English Shepherds are adaptable and learn routines quickly. Some can be watchful of strangers and are more one-person dogs. However, once he accepts people or children or stock as his own, there are few better caretakers than an English Shepherd. The English Shepherd frequently exhibits an independent, bossy or "enforcer of the rules" streak in his temperament. If the dog's desire to enforce order is not channeled and directed to a suitable end by a strong, confident leader, he may exhibit many undesirable behaviors. Nevertheless, English shepherds can thrive as companion dogs in environments that provide sufficient mental and physical stimulation.
