Are Rat Terrier Dogs Playful Dogs?
One of the things we love about dogs is their playfulness. Some breeds are commonly 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 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 bear in mind 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 affect his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian examine your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
