We have always had labs and now Sadie (rottie). All good dogs!

A friend of mine had a border collie. Very active dog! and noisy....

Our neighbor has a sheltie that gets walked 2x's a day and is still very high strung and barks at everything.

The larger the breed the mellower they seem to be.... The shorter the hair or single coat = less work cleaning/brushing/de-matting from whatever they get into on camping trips....

Good luck in the search for the next family member.

Ten Peeves that Dogs Have About Humans
'1' Blaming your farts on me.
not funny... not funny at all !!!

--------------------------------------------------
'2' Yelling at me for barking.
I'M A FRIGGIN' DOG, YOU IDIOT!

--------------------------------------------------
'3' Taking me for a walk, then
not letting me check stuff out.
Exactly whose walk is this anyway?

--------------------------------------------------
'4' Any trick that involves balancing
on my nose. Stop it!

--------------------------------------------------
'5' Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons.
Now you know why we chew your stuff
up when you're not home.

--------------------------------------------------
'6' The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw.
You fooled a dog! Whoooo Hoooooooo what
a proud moment for the top of the chain.
--------------------------------------------------
'7' Taking me to the vet for "the big snip",
then acting surprised when I freak
out every time we go back!

--------------------------------------------------
'8' Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests.
Sorry, but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet.

--------------------------------------------------
'9' Dog sweaters. Hello ???
Haven't you noticed the fur?

--------------------------------------------------
'10" How you act disgusted when I lick myself.
Look, we both know the truth. You're just jealous.

--------------------------------------------------
Now lay off me on some of these things.
We both know who's boss here!
You don't see me picking up your poop do you?
EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY.
A DOG ALWAYS OFFERS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

CATS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT!

I think any dog has the potential to be great or terrible. It all comes down to how much time and love and training you give them, regardless of the breed.
My favorite dog was my Black lab / Border X, had him for 12 years untill cancer finally got him. He was extremely loyal, easy to train smart and always alot of fun to be around and always gentle with the kids. I now have a blue healer X, he is a bit harder to train, doesn't like to sit still too long and has a short attention span (but he is still under a year old). That said, he is also very gentle and good with the kids. I've even watched my daughter pull him around by the tail and he doesn't seem to mind at all.
The two main things I've read about healers is they are not good with kids and they are dog agressive, neither of which has been true.

Behavior problems in dogs are usually caused by not getting out enough, they get bored and find different ways to burn energy. For a family dog I'd get a lab cross something. Labs are great, but mutts are better, more character and they live longer. My lab/dalmation died at age 15-16ish this summer and I just had to take my aunts pure bread golden retriever to be put down at age 10.

I had a border collie growing up, they are one of the smartest dogs I have ever owned, but because they are so smart they get board fast and can turn easly into a problem dog. But they can make a great family dog, easy to train, tons of energy will keep up with you no mater what your doing. Also since they are a herding bred they have they might try moiving you around, witch is cute until they start bitting your heels. They also can be easly excited, such as kids running around and screaming, and will go into herding mood (most have there very strong back ground as working dogs) If trained and given enough to do this is a great bred....


If your looking for a bred that is smaller, but still full of energy I would say a Australian shepherd, they are also a herding bred some can be a little larger then a border collie but by a few pounds. I find they are calmer, so if you what a day of watching tv they will lay down with ya... But also a very energetic bred, so will keep up to hiking or a quad all day, even hauling there own pack. They are VERY smart, easy to train, and there hair is a little shorter then a collies making there grooming a more easy up keep.

Border Collies dont really have a off button, this is great if your herding 300 sheep everyday, but not so great if you want a down day. Australian Shepherds have all the good qualties that a collies has but also a off button, they are not a lazy mans dog at all, but will be a great dog also on those down days. And I found the Australian shepherd to be a more gentle bred.

I have worked with both breds, and yes I am sure there are some great collies out there and some shitty shepherds, but this is just how I see it.

Also some of the best dogs I have owned were pound puppies... mixed bred is almost always the way I go with dogs now, I have had better dogs from the pound, personalty and health wise.

good luck

What somtimes works to help train a dog out of that, is giving her a kong toy with peanut butter or somthing so she is busy for a few hours. there are great toys out there for that.

Also try training her to speak, yes train her to bark, then you will have a off switch. This dog my have issues with being abandond, but maybe spend a day leaving but staying out side of the door, get a good book and everything she starts to bark use you off switch, but do not give her a treat cause then she will learn to bark for a treat. But if you spend the whole day doing it she will soon learn that your there, or coming back soon.
