Basenjis have strong snarky tendencies and certainly are not a breed traditionally considered willing to work with their owner.

What about Entlebuchers? I know you said it had to fit exactly and they are a bit heavier than your preference. Weight can be misleading though, as these dogs are the same height range as many others mentioned, such as whippets - 16-20". They are described as "cheerful", tend to get along well with other dogs, very devoted to their people, very strudy and love to work with their people. I have been totally impressed with what I have seen with this breed in agility.

What a minute...I think the breed does exsist!

A Danish-Swedish Farmdog. They are an all purpose farm dog who have both herding and huinting instinct, good with people and other dogs, short wash and wear coat, have moderate head type, known for their trainability and are sturdy dogs fit your size range. And if you're a fan of terrier looks, they look sort of like a smooth haired terrier but they aren't

Is the Danish/Swedish Farmdog the right choice for your lifestyle?

I knew Shibas had a thicker coat than a single coat, but I figured it wasn't as bad as a Corgi or GSD coat I stand corrected!

Sounds like a hound would fit the criteria.

LOL. They are cool, that's for sure. Why live vicariously? You should just go for it!

Forgot about this when I mentioned Beagles. They have a strong willingness to work, for sure. But they have their own work plan and nevermind yours. I found that inside the house, little Splash was very easy to teach new things to. Outside, where all the cool scents were, forget it. It was a real chore to keep his attention on my agenda. LOL.
