Could look at the Portuguese Water Dogs. The two I've known were agility dogs and were not big on barking but that's only anecdotal.
It's a slick, almost greasy texture even when it's freshly bathed. It's just a texture that freaks me out. I want to be able to pet my dog. Most of the doodle mixes I have met have had the crimped but soft coat.

I LOVE PWDs, but they are way too small. I forgot to mention that my minimum is going to be 60lbs. Preferably I'll be looking at 75+.

If you don't want to bathe every two kr three weeks then you want an Afghan hound in a puppy clip or even a slightly longer clip.
This is a definite idea if you can get me in with an Affie rescue or something.

Yep. I am living with a Vizsla and her shedding is so inoffensive to me. It's wonderful. I just don't like hair on things, and they still shed. I'm not completely ruling them out, but at the same time if I'm going to have hair I want it to be easy to manage.

Me, too. Around here at least maybe 25% or so do have a wiry, terrier-like coat, though.

We have a ton of doodles at work and only two have had wirey coats, it's too bad because I prefer it.

I love it. I think they look adorable and I'd rather have one of them than the giant poofy afro doodles. .

Why? I'm mean.... If it was bred by someone who health tested their dogs, researched their breedings, bred few and far between etc etc etc, ticked all the boxes.., then why not.

I also agree with you on the wire coat feeling.... I don't like the feel of them, they always feel dirty, no matter what. I like the look a lot, but actually don't like the feel, and think they look smelly!

I can only assume vizsla hair is like gsp hair, and it's small and inoffensive but good god it winds its way in to the fibres of things!

I don't think dobes are as course, so might be better. But short hair isn't always easy hair!

I also like giant schnauzers! They are fun dogs... And they don't look smelly either, but I don't *think* I've ever touched one!

I like clipped old English sheepdogs, but don't think they are 'sharp' like a dobe... But then I don't think doodles are particularly?!

Doodles are very alert-y, would they bite? I don't know but I lean towards probably. Either way it's a very common request with them for us to help curb the OMG a change! Must bark! They aren't exactly demanding in their barking but they notice changes and alert efficiently.

*It should be mentioned I get a lot more "medium" and golden doodles than I get of "giant" or labradoodles.

I third the Bouvier idea. Great dogs. Protective, or at least put up a good show. Very family orientated and love to be with the family. Mine barked, but I am pretty sure that is because they lived with Terriers and terriers bark at everything, even non existing things. Have a stubborn streak, but easy to train. Mine all have had a pretty good prey drive. Heck Emme went after a Beaver last weekend. She called off it really easy though. Oh, and Bouviers have the best Bouve Bounce. Good with people. Aloof and do not really seek out strangers attention, but would not refuse it either. Emme is more friendly to people that what are other Bouvers did. They are good off leash. My parents live on 220 acres and they are not fenced in. They stick to the inside of the property line. Emme did go through a car chasing phase, but the was easily corrected my training, and when she chased the cars she never went on the road. But when we did go off the property like to our cabin in BC they stick close when we are going hiking or to the beach.
