Is Finnish Lapphund Playful?
Considering to own a Finnish Lapphund and want to know whether Finnish Lapphund is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Finnish Lapphund Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about pet dogs is their playfulness. Some breeds are normally 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 essential to bear 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 keep in mind 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.
Obviously, 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 vet examine your 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 usually fun-loving and playful 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 delight herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature greeting, 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 loads of possibility 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.
Finnish Lapphund Information
Few Lappies today in America have seen a reindeer, but they adapt well to other kinds of work, including obedience, agility, tracking therapy, and herding other types of livestock. When working, Finnish Lapphunds are agile, alert and noisy. While interacting with people, however, the breed is calm, friendly, and very submissive. Lappy puppies are adorable, but new owners should take care to remember that a small puppy grows up quickly and needs to learn good habits early on. Socialization, puppy classes and basic training will help him learn those habits.
