Top 10 Most Playful Dog Breeds

August 31, 2019

All dogs love to play. But some play harder than others. Hey, don’t hate the player. Whether you want a loyal canine companion
to tag along on outdoor activities or a tireless playmate for the kids, these ten most playful
dog breeds offer fun-loving dispositions, boundless energy, and cheerful enthusiasm
as active participants in all family activities. You’re watching Animal Facts! 10. German Shepherd Dog The German Shepherd Dog is perhaps best known
as an intelligent, working dog. But, when the German Shepherd isn’t working
hard, it’s playing hard. German Shepherd Dogs have great instincts
and active minds. Lots of activity and exercise will make your
doggy happy, but tracking, obedience, and agility games — or any task-oriented activity
— will make it even happier. A bored German Shepherd Dog may resort to
chewing furniture, digging up flowers and other mischief to help it burn off some underutilized
energy reserves. 9. Beagle One of the happiest hounds on Earth makes
for an ideal playmate for all members of the family. Originally developed to hunt in packs, Beagles
closely bond to their people. These playful dogs want to join the fun at
every opportunity. But this scent hound may not be the fastest
hiking partner, as it intensely sniffs its way along the trail. The Beagle’s motto is “let my nose be
my guide.” 8. Dalmatian Best known for the smooth coat of white with
black spots, the Dalmatian possesses an energy reserve that never seems to deplete. Once used to run alongside horse-drawn carriages
and firefighting coaches, the Dalmatian enjoys romping alongside family members as they jog,
skate or ride their bikes. This dog is bred for endurance and has a bone
structure that makes them excellent runners. Their near endless stamina also gives them
tireless enthusiasm, which makes them one of the most lovable and playful dog breeds. The Dalmatian is eager to learn to perform
tricks and agility feats. No matter what the activity may be, the Dalmatian
is a friendly dog that is happiest when playing with its family. 7. Australian Shepherd If dogs ran businesses, the Australian Shepherd
would be the CEO. This loyal and hardworking breed makes a loyal
companion and can thrive in a variety of environments. Australian Shepherds are incredibly playful
for most of their lives. So, if you are seeking an active dog for years
to come, this one might be the right dog for you. Despite the name, Australian Shepherds were
actually first bred in the United States in the late 19th century for sheep herding, which
they can still be found doing today, as well as being general ranch and farm dogs. The Aussie was bred to work in extreme conditions
like high altitude and remote locations. As a companion dog, this breed’s smart but
sometimes dominating personality can be best stimulated by a fun session on the agility
course or other dog sports. 6. English Springer Spaniel The English Springer Spaniel is known for
having plenty of energy and a love for playing outdoors. Cheerful, playful and energetic, English Springer
Spaniels were bred for hunting tirelessly under difficult conditions. And, they are built for strength and endurance
and can be a bit overly enthusiastic if not exercised daily, preferably outdoors or with
some active dog toys. Their friendly personalities make them an
ideal companion for an active family. Try activities like hiking, fetching, agility
training, and tracking. 5. Jack Russell Terrier / Parson Russell Terrier Spunky, mischievous, highly intelligent, and
very lively, the small but mighty Jack Russell Terrier is a playful character that needs
vigorous playtime every day to burn off some of its almost inexhaustible energy. Jacks and the related Parson Russell Terriers
enjoy hiking and running after playful children. They have a strong instinct to dig, which
can be helpful if your child is trying to see if you can really dig to China or if you
need the soil in your garden bed tilled. Because these Terriers always need something
to do, they make excellent candidates for agility and other canine sports activities. 4. Labrador Retriever American’s most popular breed is also one
of the most playful dog breeds. The Labrador Retriever is an animated athlete
that never tires of games. The Lab is friendly with everybody. This sporting breed is an excellent companion
for outdoor activities such as hiking and hunting, and its love of water makes it an
excellent companion for boating and fishing. While the Golden Retriever is a different
breed, it shares the Lab’s love of play, along with many other characteristics. So, for the purpose of this video, I’ll
lump them together. You can check out the differences in the video
in the card. Like the Labrador, a happy disposition and
willingness to romp and play make the Golden Retriever a popular choice for families with
children. 3. West Highland White Terrier The wee white terrier with the prick ears
is always primed for a good time. The spunky and confident West Highland Terrier
is the smallest dog on this list, weighing between 15 and 22 pounds, making it a fun-sized
playmate whose exuberance won’t knock small children down. Although it certainly has the energy to keep
up with them. These agile and playful dogs also excel at
canine sports. 2. Corgi I’m just going to say Corgi, because anyone
that knows Corgis knows that the Corgi breeds share a love for play. The Corgi, which comes from Great Britain,
is a favorite of sitting monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Corgis first appeared in England as cattle
herding dogs in the early 20th century. Their short legs and small stature helped
them avoid the heavy hooves of the cows they worked alongside. While cattle farming lands have shrunk, the
Corgi’s large amount of energy has not, so it’s essential to give your furry friend
plenty of fun playtime. It does still need to burn off that exceptional
energy. 1. Boxer If I had gotten to number one without including
the Boxer, I’m pretty sure I would have been ripped to shreds in the comments. One of the defining characteristics of the
Boxer is a refusal to grow up and its goofy, if not awkward, fun-loving personality. Boxers are intelligent, high-energy, playful
dogs that like to stay busy and prefer to be in the company of their family. The Boxer has a high need for companionship
and exercise. Boxers are ideal for people who want a doggy
companion with them all of the time or for larger active families with homes that are
often occupied by someone. Know what other dogs are playful? Shelter dogs. Mutts. Let’s hear it for dogs of questionable lineage
who boast a quirky mix of breeds. You can find one or two at your local animal
shelter. You’ll be rewarded with a loyal friend who
will eagerly join you on every adventure. There’s no better outdoor companion than that. If you can’t adopt a dog, you can volunteer
at the shelter to play with the dogs to help socialize them and get them ready for their
forever homes. Hey, thanks for hanging with us. If you want more doggy videos, you can check

  1. All the breeds on the list are very wonderful dogs. Hopefully I'll see a Cocker Spaniel .have u done a video on dogs with the most health problems?

  2. I would have to attest to jack rustle terriers being playful! I am blind and with multiple health issues! My dog mollie has been very helpful! When I got mollie she was only a month old puppy and next April she will be ten! I can say that dogs do have an incredible intuition a sixth sense about knowing that i am blind! All our pet dogs and even our relatives dogs and even stray dogs will come up to me and grab my hand and lead me! It was about ten years ago! I lived in an apartment complex with my dad and my grandmother was bringing me back one night after dark! I was about to graduate from high school and in fact i was loaded down with a bunch of stuff carrying it up to my upstairs apartment! I had a loaded bookbag, a packed laptop case, a purse, my cap and gown, and my graduation clothes! I had to get creative as to how to carry everything! I had my school stuff and loaded down with everything! I had my cane and barely had a free hand to grab the rail and with everything i had i got out and a grate big female german Shepard dog that had babies somewhere was roaming around and she walked right up to me and grabbed my hand with her mouth! She stayed right by my body and when i got closer to the curb she got closer to me and made sure i didn’t fall! She walked with me over to the staircase and watched me go up and made sure i was inside! Then there was my boston terrier named Sadie and she took all the eyes off her stuffed animals! So every dog i have encountered hasn’t always been positive experience for me! I was attacked at age six by a dog! I wasn’t doing anything but sitting in a rocking chair rocking back and forth! The dog was growling and in my face showing teeth and close enough i could feel its breath! The dog was a female chow named sheba which belonged to my mama’s friend! I was a bit weary of dogs that i didn’t know! After that i was cautious! I soon got over my fear! I knew being blind i would need help from a dog one day! I am a dog magnet dogs are just drawn to me! I do have some useful vision and i like dogs that are a light color so i can see their beautiful brown eyes! I have three dogs in my house and they are quite comical! I really enjoy listening to your show and your little girl is so adorable! What an awesome thing to do for a father daughter activity!

  3. Hey, i saw you on Nicks channel and you commented a year ago when you had 2000 subs, now you have 33000 , congrats i watched all your ads to support you, i also hope i can be like you😃💚💚💚🤘

  4. I won't quibble much about your list and the ordering of it except to say Labs and Goldens really should have been first. Their play drive is what makes them so trainable as bomb and drug sniffing dogs and as retrievers. Everything is a game to them. Their play drive is relentless. Spaniels are right behind them. I'd also include the American Pit Bull Terrier. A Pitty will give you all the fun you can possibly stand.

  5. Where in the world do you find all the videos for your videos. Wow what a lot of work. Thank you for all your hard work, they're so enjoyable…

  6. Top ten dog breeds for blaa blaa blaa. Look here, ALL dogs are loyal, all dogs are playfull,(except at work) , all dogs blaa blaa a family ect… Right now, I'm looking at a thumbnail next in line to view, that says Top Ten small dogs good with cats. Do you folks really expect me to believe all this crap ? "Oh no mister, I'm a Manchester Terrier. I'm too good at ratting to go fetch that stick". All dogs are everything to thier master. Treat them like a 3 year old child, and they will love you fou life. Who cares what color or size your baby is. The dog don't care.

  7. It’s true I found a lost beagle mut puppy howling in the woods and he’s been my best friend ever since
