Is Rhodesian Ridgeback Playful?
Looking to adopt a Rhodesian Ridgeback and want to know whether Rhodesian Ridgeback is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Rhodesian Ridgeback 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. 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 significant to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, normally need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should keep in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are infatuated 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 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 starting any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are playful and usually fun-loving 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 a lot of possibility 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.
