Is Tornjak Playful?
Wanting to get a Tornjak and want to know whether Tornjak is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Tornjak Dogs 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.
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 essential to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, normally need lots of mental and physical 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 sway his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian 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 normally fun-loving demeanors are definitely part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, smart and spunky, 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 greeting, and is normally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will amuse you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have loads of possibility to use his strong sniffer. That can be as easy as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Tornjak has a calm temperament. A typical adult Tornjak is very calm, peaceful, at first sight an indifferent animal, but when the situation demands it, it is a vigilant and very alert watchdog. The character is equal to the temperament; they are not nervous nor aggressive. In general, they are very tough, not too demanding, sturdy dogs. With their human family they are very emotional. When living in a pack they are highly social animals and there isn't any fighting between the pack members. Towards strangers or other animals, as a rule, Tornjak is not overly aggressive. But when the situation calls upon it, Tornjak is quite decisive and it can without any consideration attack even much stronger rivals. Shepherds used to say that a Tornjak who guards the flock is a fair match to two wolves, and a couple will confront and chase away a bear without any undue respect. In these situations Tornjaks are very tenacious.
