Is Whippet Playful?
Wanting to adopt a Whippet and need to know whether Whippet is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Whippet Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we appreciate about dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are generally more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the canine breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's significant to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, generally 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 most likely 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. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian inspect your pet dog 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 usually fun-loving demeanors are definitely 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 signature greeting, and is normally 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 lots of opportunity 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.
Perhaps the most demonstrative and obedient of the true sighthounds, the whippet makes an ideal pet for people who want a quiet house dog and absolutely devoted companion. The whippet is extremely gentle with children and can make an excellent companion for them. It is calm indoors but loves to run and play outdoors. It is extremely sensitive (both physically and mentally) and cannot take rough treatment or harsh corrections.
