Question by Atlas: of these breeds which would you recommend?
akita (considering but wants to see about another breed)
ibizan hound (smooth)
bernese mountain dog
greater swiss mountain dog
Dogue de Bordeaux
St bernard (smooth)
the person that is considering another dog in 3-4 years has these on a list. also owns an american akita (greater Japanese dog) he is a very laid back dog not extremely vocal and only sheds twice a year.
the person wants a dog that is:
not extremely vocal
working or hound group
not an extremely hyper breed (can handle the activity level of an akita and has handled rotts and malamutes)
goes on 2 hour walks daily so a dog that wont have trouble with that (some breeds with respiratory problems have trouble with long walks)
not a heavy shedding breed.
lives on wide pieced of land in Texas where it is HOT and there are cactus and such.
willing to groom a dog twice a week.
breed should be known for being calm and tolerant (thats just what this person likes)
which of these breeds fit and you would recommend?
1. that show is only partially correct on the best occasions
2. they do not have alot of the breeds mentioned in there vids
not remotely interested in the border collie please look at the breeds listed!
dog will be a show dog thus shelter not an option also wants a tested dog.
