I’ve trained lots of dogs. I would consider myself dog-savvy.
I’ve trained a few dogs. I’m not an expert but I think I know what I’m doing.
I’m not very experienced. I need a dog with nice manners already in place.
I have patience to help a dog that needs work but has great potential, and I’m willing to take advice, and/or go to obedience classes.
A dog with independence is fine, he/she doesn’t have to always be by my side.
Affectionate but also fine being alone too.
I want my dog to show me lots of affection and to enjoy being with me as much as possible.
I am happy with any kind of personality. Each dog is an individual.
Active! I need a dog that has energy and can keep up with me!
Medium, active some of the time but calm sometimes too.
Lower activity, I’m a couch potato when not working, and want a lap dog.
I don’t have a preference. I can handle any level, and I can adjust to my dog’s needs.
