Is Papillon Playful?
Considering to get a Papillon and want to know whether Papillon is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Papillon Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we love about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are generally 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 crucial 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 remember 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.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will influence his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a vet inspect 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 playful and typically fun-loving 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 entertain herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature greeting, and is usually 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 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.
The temperament of a papillon is a happy, friendly, adventurous dog. They are not shy or aggressive. Papillon's make excellent family dogs but should be watched around little children, as should any dog, due to a small child's lack of understanding of a dog's behavior and the likelihood that they will do something to upset the dog.
