Is Great Pyrenees Playful?
Thinking to adopt a Great Pyrenees and need to know whether Great Pyrenees is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Great Pyrenees Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about dogs is their playfulness. 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 canine breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's crucial 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 remember 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 influence his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet examine your dog 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 certainly 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 entertain herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark 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 loads of opportunity to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
