Default Breed Suggestions.

This is just for fun, as I know what my next dog will be. I always tend to stick close to certain breeds and figured I would see what others suggested

Temperament: Good with everyone... adults, kids, other dogs, etc. They don't have to love them 100%, but they definitely have to tolerate them (though loving them is a plus!).

Energy level: I prefer a more active dog, but not insanely active. I find it hard to say exactly what type of energy level I prefer because I'm pretty adaptable. I'd be doing walks, hiking, jogs, bike rides, agility, dock diving, off leash, swimming, etc.

Coat: I'd prefer a "wash and wear" coat Little to no extensive grooming needed. I don't mind shedding at all though.

Size: Medium-Large. I'd say anywhere between 50-80 pounds, but I would go as little as 40 and maybe a little bit larger.

Trainability: I want a dog that is pretty trainable, but being a tad stubborn isn't that bad. Harleigh is about as stubborn as they come sometimes... for a Lab anyways I'd really want to do Rally and/or Obedience, possible get a therapy dog certificate.

Thats all I can think of... if you need anything else just ask?

I've considered Golden's before, but I definitely prefer the field bred ones and I can't seem to find any breeders that I like (granted I haven't looked much). Haven't even thought about a Grey though, interesting.

Brittany's are absolutely gorgeous and I've always loved the look of them, haven't read much about them though. I'd be willing to go their size though, as I don't think they are that much smaller.

Hmm - interesting! I've never even considered a Smooth Collie before. I don't know much about them, but maybe I'll have to read some more about them.
