Is Silken Windhound Playful?
Wanting to adopt a Silken Windhound and want to know whether Silken Windhound is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Silken Windhound Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about pet dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are usually more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's necessary to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, usually need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should remember that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed with playing fetch, and there are probably even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, 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.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are typically fun-loving and playful 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 trademark welcoming, and is usually a boisterous and exuberant breed who will amuse you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have plenty of opportunity to use his strong sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Silken Windhound Information
Silken Windhounds are affectionate and playful and are good dogs for families with children. Owing to their friendliness, they are not good guard dogs but are easily house broken and can be trained to live with smaller household pets. Silkens particularly like agility, therapy, flyball, and obedience. Silken Windhounds are often intelligent and easily trained using reward and affection in short, positive sessions and will work eagerly and form strong relationships with their owners if so treated. Like many sighthounds, Silken Windhounds can slip out of buckle collars, so most owners favour semi-slip collars.
