Is Irish Setter Playful?
Considering to adopt an Irish Setter and need to know whether Irish Setter is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Irish Setter Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about canines is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the pet dog breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's significant to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, usually need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should remember that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed with playing fetch, and there are possibly 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.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are generally 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 amuse herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature welcoming, and is normally 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 plenty of opportunity to use his strong sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Irish Setter Information
The Irish setter was bred to be a tireless and enthusiastic hunter, and it approaches everything in life with a rollicking, good-natured attitude, full of gusto and fervor. Given a daily outlet for its energy, it makes a pleasant companion. Without ample exercise, it can be overly active inside or become frustrated. It is an amiable breed, eager to please and be part of its family's activities. It is good with children, but can be too rambunctious for small children. It is less popular as a hunter than the other setters.
