dog agression, mild same sex i can deal with to some extent...but i like having a group of dogs and wouldnt knowingly put myself up to deal with a crate/rotate situation
i also dislike extreemly owner aloof dogs, i want my dog to enjoy my company, i dont dogs aloof with strangers...but breeds who barely care for their families company...not my cuppa

I wonder if other dogs think Cresties are members of some weird religious cult?

I've had 5 of my own and many boarded or rescued as pluses . I never had crates and all were family .

I really dislike dogs that are overly friendly to everyone. A little bit reserved is preferable.
Also, I don't want to deal with professional grooming, so that would be a big turn off.

Dog-aggression bugs me, and I can't live with it. I don't like lazy dogs or ones with low drive, but I'd take a breathing sofa pillow before I'd take a dog that would willingly attack a housemate.

I agree.

Something about a dog who instantly wriggles and flips on their back and cries and pees and claws me upon sight... it just unnerves me. I must get it from Gonzo. Adult dogs who behave like super-submissive puppies are his #1 pet peeve of the century. Especially incessant mouth licking, omg, he flips his lid! This is something that I notice often in Border Collies. It's definitely not a "breed trait", but I see it often which makes it even worse.

After my brief experience with a DA foster, I am very startled by DA as well. I'm sure it's because I am so protective of my boys and I love them so. But, I could never take in a truly DA dog. Outside of the family DR is a piece of cake, as long as they can be trusted with each other. I don't mind not going to the dog park, having to train and desensitize, and all of that. I respect anyone who does own multiple DA dogs but it's too painful for me. I am far too much of a worrywort.

Friendly to others - my dog is my dog; not your dog
Needy/wanting to be touched all the time - I like a dog that comes to me; touches me and once acknowledged is good for awhile
welcoming strangers on the property without my permission
liking other dogs a lot -- I don't mind my dog to have friends; but it annoys the crap out of me that my dog would die to see and play with another dog

I also object to yapping. And I strongly prefer a dog that is loyal to family but reserved with strangers. I admire the accomplishments of dogs that constantly have to be kept busy. but I sure wouldn't want one.

Dog Aggression.

I have too many dogs to ever want any dog aggressive dogs (Audubon is DA, but she's been that for 8 years, and she's getting old now, so it's not nearly as much of a problem as when she was younger).

I could not be one of these people that had to crate and rotate every dog they had. No way. I love being able to have a large group of dogs that all love each other, and can all go play and run and enjoy each other in a group. Not have one locked away while the other plays, then rotate and do the same to the other dog.

So yeah, I think dog aggression tops my list.

With my own breed the trait I dislike the most is the ever-present possibility of Dog Aggression. I will do everything in my power to avoid a crate and rotate situation, but will deal with issues as they come. I'm not dumb and I know it's something that can happen in my chosen breed of dog (though it doesn't seem to be nearly as bad in this bully breed as it is in others).

I don't do super-submissive, fearful, barky, independent, furry, low drive, too much drive . . . I'm sure there's much much more. I'm really very picky about what dogs I like.
