Is Xoloitzcuintli Playful?
Thinking to adopt a Xoloitzcuintli and need to know whether Xoloitzcuintli is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Xoloitzcuintli Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we really love about dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are normally 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 fun loving. It's vital to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, typically 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 possibly 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 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 generally fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely 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 signature welcoming, and is normally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have plenty of possibility to use his powerful sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
They make excellent companion dogs. Xolo need a consistent training regiment and clearly defined boundaries. A training class for puppies is strongly recommended. Young dogs require a substantial amount of exercise and structured playtime. Bored Xolos may entertain themselves in ways you don’t find acceptable. An ideal Xolo owner is someone looking for a dog who will be a complete companion - guardian, friend and playmate. Xolos are fine as only dogs, but also sharing a home with children or other pets.
