Is Fila Brasileiro Playful?
Looking to get a Fila Brasileiro and want to know whether Fila Brasileiro is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Fila Brasileiro 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 pet 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, normally 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 obsessed with playing fetch, and there are possibly 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. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian analyze your pet dog 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 normally fun-loving demeanors are definitely 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 usually 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 strong sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Fila Brasileiro Information
The Brazilian Mastiffs are known to be naturally protective. It is also known for its extreme wariness of strangers and agility when protecting or defending its master. The dedication and obedience of the Fila Brasileiro has found its way into Brazilian saying "As faithful as a Fila". The Fila Brasileiro temperament is what characterizes the dog. The Portuguese word for their temperament is Ojeriza, which directly translated into English means dislike and distrust. The socialization period (about the first year with the first 6-8 months being the most important) of the dog's life is crucial to the temperament of the individual dog. If the pup is exposed to a lot of people in a positive manner (known as 'socializing'), the pup (keeping in mind the dog's natural protective instincts) can be encouraged to behave in a calm manner in public, but emphasis should be placed on the fact that socialization is done differently from other breeds. Despite extensive socialization, the fila is instinctively protective and will naturally guard and protect its owner, their family members and the family pets; this is not something that needs to be trained, it is an innate trait. Strangers should not be left unattended with a Fila and, like all other guardian breeds, it may not be the best choice for those who have frequent visitors to their homes. Lack of all socialization with strangers at a young age will result in a dog which is very anti-social.
