I found myself forgetting the topic when I read this post, because these are many of the traits that I like to a certain degree! Isn't it amazing how everyone can find a dog that fits them, even when their wants are completely different!?

I'd have to say human aggression/reactiveness. Any dog that doesn't happily let a new person into the house when you give an okay. Boo barks incessantly at one particular individual when he comes over (she's afraid of his guitar case), and it drives me insane. Otherwise, she's perfect.

Also extreme dog reactiveness/aggression. I can handle a dog that gets upset if an overly pushy dog gets in their face, but I wouldn't be able to handle having a dog flipping in circles at the end of its leash at another dog.

and yapping. A dog can have a voice... but there is a time and a place to bark. Not at the wind/leaves/birds/squirrels/people/everything it wants or sees.

and, in the case of different breeds, I wouldn't want a breed that is so weirdly shaped that it can't breathe or move correctly.

Overly exuberant, in your face, love anyone and anything type dogs. I like them a little reserved. And after dealing with Dog Reactivity, I hope never to have another like that again... nor DA, as I don't enjoy having just one dog. Overly submissive dogs are not for me either, nor are very "soft" dogs.

I completely agree. I couldn't imagine owning a breed that loved everyone.

I've had both and it's a trait I could take either way. There are nice things about more reserved dogs, and then nice things about people lovers too.

Some of what I love about the herders is their tendency to not love everyone. My shelties and GSDx were not going to go off with just anyone. I loved that. Our bond was something they didn't just give away, you have to work up to it.

On the other hand, the paps are total opposite in that they love love love everyone. No one is a stranger. It's amazing to see how fast Summer gets comfortable with people and how much everyone that meets her seems to think she's unusually taken to them. She's just like that to everyone . She's actually really helped out several people who were going through hard times that way.

I do get jealous sometimes, though.

So yeah, either way works for me, depending on the rest of the dog's temperament. I enjoy both and think they balance each other out quite nicely.

I have to say that having Dahlia here with me has reinforced the feeling that there is absolutely NOTHING I would change about the Fila breed Perfect breed for me in all ways.

She's a very different personality from Kharma, but the cornerstones, the foundations of what makes a Fila a Fila are there.

aloofness or catlike relationship with owner. Aloofness is fine with strangers but not with me. I have never had an aloof dog luckily. I want a dog that actively enjoys my company as much a I enjoy theirs.

I have a question: what's a Fila?

I put slobber dogs at top of my list,then yappers. I'm not so sure I would ever get another cocker either,the "excitement" piddling will limit places I will take her.

It shouldn't be a breed trait. Over all it is not a breed trait. Many poorly bred cockers give the rest of the breed a bad image. A good number of badly bred small dogs tend to pee on themselves. It's not a breed trait. It's a badly bred trait.

Cider did submissive pee as a young dog. She is badly bred, but got over it. Smudge is well bred and has never had a problem.

I find it insulting to the breed and help breeds people's prejudice towards a breed that is apparently known for eating children, being nippy, and now peeign on itself by people posting such things. Especially people who have owned the breed.
