Is Hokkaido Dog Playful?
Looking to adopt a Hokkaido Dog and want to know whether Hokkaido Dog is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Hokkaido 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 typically 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 significant to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, typically 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 most likely 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. So even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian analyze your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.

2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are generally fun-loving and playful demeanors are certainly part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, spunky and smart, this breed needs to be entertained - or she'll find a way to entertain herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature greeting, and is normally 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 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.
