I find that one thing that is really beginning to sway my decision in my next breed is working style. I really prefer a dog who is "hands off" until they need to get involved, not nit-picking and riling a herd up more than it needs to to find "perfection". I also prefer a low working dog. This is one of the things I LOVE about ACD's. I love watching them work cattle. I could watch all day. BC's I find are a little too obsessed with the "perfection" for me. I also don't care for their softer personality. Koolies. How do they work?! I've read they are a more upward worker. Are they barking constantly at the stock? If anyone knows, please enlighten me. SaraB... is Zinga still going to lessons? If so, how is her working style, if you don't mind me asking? Then there are the "All Arounders". Aussies and ES. I've honestly not looked much into their working style. Are they typically low workers as well? For those of you who work them, do you find that they work better, the same, worse as those who are bred to just work stock? Loudness?
