Default What breed for me? (New and improved)

Hello guys Ilovedogs56 here and yes I KNOW I made one of these before. This is the more specific better one. Enjoy!

-I want a medium sized dog, like a Cocker Spaniel size.
-I am willing to give an hour and a half of exercise a day to my pooch.
-I want a biddable dog. Not a hard headed dog but also not too biddable.
-I don't want a dog that is aloof I like Velcro dogs that like to cuddle.
-An average day would be a thirty minute walk,thirty minute run, and a Wesson of mental training.
-I want a dog that is good with other animals and dogs.
-No heavy shedding or drool.
-Grooming could be brushing 5 days a week but not frequent trips to the groomers.

Well that's all I could think of at the moment. Buh-Bye!

What about a crestie? Other than a bit more in the grooming dept (though you could get a hairless) Schen, who is a powderpuff, is all that you ask for. And really I could simply shave him down to a pony cut twice a year and be done with all the hair.

I'd check out Sussex Spaniels if I were you.

Sussex Spaniels eh? I never really looked into them. I think I should start doing my research then! Sussex Spaniels are on my list of researching breeds. Any others?

a westie came to mind for me, they do have grooming requirements but you could clip them short to minimize it. I'm not sure what keeping on in full-coat requires.

A norfolk terrier might fit too.

I'm also a little curious about your size range? I consider cocker spaniels to be pretty small or small-medium dogs, and medium to me can mean anything from bigger-than-toy-sized to a lab or smaller golden. Do you have a weight or height range?

A beagle might work, if you'd be able to keep them on-leash, and while they're certainly not the most biddable, if you figure out how they like to learn, they are quite trainable.

A poodle would also be a great fit except for grooming, but again you could do a short puppy cut every few months and not need to worry otherwise.

An american eskimo would also be a good fit except they are heavy shedders - especially when blowing coat - but it can be minimized with diet and brushing...
