When I look at dog breed ratings on different sites, most breeds receive high ratings in at least one of these two categories: playfulness and affection. Some breeds, though, like Rottweilers, Schipperkes, Chows, and Schnauzers (excluding minis) to name just a few consistently get low ratings in both areas. What I love most about my dog is how affectionate and playful she is. I'm not saying these other breeds are bad dogs by any means but I've always had trouble understanding why someone would seek out a dog that isn't playful or affectionate. Just curious what your thoughts are.
