Is Great Dane Playful?
Looking to adopt a Great Dane and need to know whether Great Dane is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Great Dane Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we love about dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are normally 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 essential 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 bear in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed 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 vet examine your pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before starting any exuberant activities.

2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are generally fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely part of it.

4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature greeting, and is generally 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 lots 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.
