How do you feel about these kinds of statements? "-insert breed of dog- is not like other dogs!" I see it a lot, but I almost feel like *every* owners of a certain breed do it, lol. I know each breed definitely has it's special needs or requirements, etc, and there's a reason different breeds appeal to different people for unique traits and temperaments and whatnot. And obviously a person who has had x breed of dog for a lot of years is going to feel they are special, just like the person who has had y breed for just as many years feels THEIR breed is "not like other dogs". There's nothing wrong with having a favorite breed obviously! But I'm not sure I'd go as far to say it has to be THAT different in terms of training, exercise, feeding. At the base of it all, they are all dogs. I don't know - just thinking aloud. Thoughts?
