This is for the SO, I figured I'd compile a list of good breeds for him to check out. And since we have a bunch of other ones going on.... LOL. At first he liked just playing with my dogs, but recently he's been asking me about getting his own dog. I think he took it kind of hard when Walsh passed bc Muffin is a true momma's boy and Walsh would at least give him the time of day. Anyway, this won't be until we buy a house... So at least 2 years away. His requirements: 1) Size: not a small breed, preference will be given to med breeds but large will not be excluded. 2) Shedding: preference will be given to no/light shedding but heavy shedders will not be excluded 3) Barking: alert barking only and dog must stop once human acknowledges the thing. An example: there was a fox making freaky noises outside the front door two days ago... Keeda went ballistic. As soon as I said, "yup, I know now go to sleep." she stopped barking. 4) Energy: Med-Low energy. He will train basic obed he will not go any farther. The dog will mostly play in the yard during the week with any dogs I may have at the time plus play with him in the yard a few times a week, go to the shop with him, and go on a 4-6 mile hike 1x every other week. 5) Random: needs to be a Velcro-dog(he wants to be adored), not huge prey drive he wants a dog he can trust to stick around him off leash when he's got the shop door open or is fixing something outside in an unfenced part of the property. 6) This is a MUST: ABSOLUTELY NO AGGRESSION of any kind. People are in and out of his shop all day, along with other dogs... I will always have multiple dogs and I don't want to crate and rotate again if I can help it... Also there will be kids in this dog's lifetime. We're going the breeder route, so along with breeds I would be more than welcome to breeders(you can PM if you want). I want him to get a breeder rehome... He wants a puppy... I have a few years to try to convince him but we may end up with a puppy... So again, breeder recommendations would be great! TIA!
