As it turns out, Leonbergers are my dream breed (on the fence about whether i can handle all that hair .... it's pretty extreme).

I am actually looking into Standard Poodles, but have a concern about their energy levels. Not totally convinced I can provide a SP what it needs for exercise.

Totally not into drooling, so no Dogue de Bordeaux for me. Don't know anything about a Spinone Italiano. Will have to check that out.

The Spinone Italiano is sounding better the more I read. Some sites mention drooling ... will have to look into this.

That being said, I would humbly suggest that you
might want to reconsider your interest in a Bullmastiff?

And yes ... some lines of Spinone's do drool. However,
they're not nearly in the same league as the two mastiffs!

Yes, Spinoni seem to drool, and are apparently very vocal. Probably not for me.

Back to the drawing board.

Update - I just went and met with two adult Bouviers, owned by people who have owned the breed for 40 years (!). Wonderful, wonderful dogs. I think I may have made my decision.
