Is German Shorthaired Pointer Playful?
Wanting to adopt a German Shorthaired Pointer and need to know whether German Shorthaired Pointer is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, German Shorthaired Pointer Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we appreciate about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are usually more playful than others.
In the spirit of a good time, we scoured through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's vital to bear 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 bear 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 sway his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet analyze your canine 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, 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 trademark welcoming, 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 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.
German Shorthaired Pointer Information
The German shorthaired pointer's idea of heaven is a day hunting in the field and an evening curled up by its owner's side. This is an active dog that can become frustrated and "creative" if not given ample daily exercise, both mental and physical. It is a devoted family pet, although at times it is overly boisterous for small children. Because part of its heritage includes hunting mammals, some can be aggressive to small pets unless raised with them. It is a sensitive breed, responsive to gentle training. Some can whine or bark a lot.
