Is Yorkshire Terrier Playful?
Thinking to own a Yorkshire Terrier and need to know whether Yorkshire Terrier is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, Yorkshire Terrier Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about canines is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the pet dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's necessary to keep 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 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.
Obviously, 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 examine 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 usually fun-loving and playful demeanors are absolutely 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 amuse herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his signature welcoming, and is generally a boisterous and exuberant breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have a lot 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.
Yorkshire Terrier Information
The Yorkshire Terrier is tolerant of older children, provided they respect its personal space. Due to its small size and bold temperament (which arises from its working origins) the Yorkshire Terrier is not recommended for young children unless carefully supervised. The Yorkshire Terrier can occasionally be a bit too brave when dealing with larger dogs, but gets along fine with cats and other household pets. Yorkies prefer life indoors, and are especially unsuited to cold climates.
