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 necessary 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 obsessed with playing fetch, and there are most likely 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 analyze your pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
