Is Sarplaninac Playful?
Wanting to get a Sarplaninac and need to know whether Sarplaninac is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Sarplaninac Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about canines is their playfulness. But some breeds are usually more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's essential to keep 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 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 affect his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet analyze 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 normally 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 delight herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark welcoming, and is generally 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 simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
The temperament of the breed is described as independent, reliable, protective but not snappy, incorruptible and devoted to its master. The breed is aloof with outsiders, and calm until a threat to the flock presents itself. The breed has an extremely protective nature. In the absence of a flock of sheep, the Šarplaninac will often treat its humans as sheep - herding them away from danger or undesirable areas. They are serene and majestic, gentle with children and smaller dogs. They are also highly intelligent and bred to work without human supervision while guarding the flocks in the high pastures. Young pups can kill small animals until trained not to hunt. Like many of its cousin Mountain dogs, the Šarplaninac is a very serious and dedicated guard dog. Due to this, they are naturally suspicious of strangers and will need good socializing at a young age to lessen this innate personality trait. They are calm and gentle with their family but when faced with danger they become a formidable foe, not a suitable breed for all. Consistent and firm training is essential to ensure compliance.
