Is Shetland Sheepdog Playful?
Wanting to get a Shetland Sheepdog and need to know whether Shetland Sheepdog is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Shetland Sheepdogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about pet dogs is their playfulness. Some breeds are commonly more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the canine breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's important to keep 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 probably 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. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet examine your pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
