I thought you decided on a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Fandogg. Changing your mind?

I don't know. I've only seen competition here in IN.....never seen a Husky. Maybe it's too hot and stressful for them. They have to enjoy what they're doing.

papillions do really great in obedience. i know, they are just little dogs, but don't underestimate them.

Sorry not much help.
hmmm spaniels and westies LOL They must have not dealt with my two girls! Sadie couldn't find her way out of a paperbag, God love her! and Nora has a mind of her own.

I second that bubba.

The Euk tournament is edited. (The one on New Years Day) If you look closely, there are a lot of dogs in each group, only a few are shown on TV. It's why I've stopped watching it.

On an intelligence study I saw, the top 10 for picking up new commands the quickest (with the fewest repititions) and learning new words the quickest were, if I remember correctly:

1)Border Collie
2)Poodle
3) GSD
4)Golden Retriever
5)Doberman Pinscher
6)Sheltie
7)Lab
8)Rottweiler
9)Australian Cattle Dog (I think...?) (#8&9 might be reversed)
10)Papillon

However, I don't know just how much stock to put into some of these studies. Dog DO learn in different ways and so if they're asking for something from a dog in just one way, others may not respond as well to that type of direction. Plus, if you're wanting to do agility, say....there are some which are built better for that.

Fandogg's got plenty of time to explore his options and decide on what kind of dog he wants to look for. I think these discussions are interesting and they probably are a good source of information for other people who are thinking about different dog breeds.

Yeah...I think I'm beginning to come around and jumping back on the Border Collie wagon. For all the stuff I want to do they are simply the best. I wish that they were a little less animal aggressive and more affectionate but no breed is perfect. The Border Collie is **** near perfect for the kind of stuff that I want to do.
