My next dog..help
 
I'm trying to figure out what my next breed of dog should be..help?

-When we get the dog we will have lots of property, and woods. It needs to be a dog that won't kill a lot of wildlife and it needs to be a dog that is not prone to running of (example: Miniature Pinshcer).
-It needs to be a dog that isn't too fragile. We have two strong Boxers that
-It needs to be an ACTIVE dog that will run beside a bike, swim, etc.
-The level of difficulty it is to train doesn't matter, but it can't be too stubborn!
-It needs to be a dog that will stay close to home, like I said above.
-I have time to groom a dog, but it needs to be a dog that won't get sticks in its hair when it's in the woods. A shorthaired dog that isn't so capable of that would be great.

you just described my gentle giant....saint bernard perhaps? ....honestly there are a lot to choose from, german shephards, rottweilers, labs, PUGS! I know they are small but heck our pug plays with our giant saint bernard and she could like pick him up in her mouth.

Greyhounds are larger and very docile.They are quiet.They are also couch potatoes.They will go on hikes with you,jog with you,run along side a bike...etc.They are very sweet dogs.

Corgis are very loyal, energetic, and act like big dogs on a short body.

Tucker (lab mix) would follow us to the end of the earth and back. We call him Old Faithful. I could definitely see a lab as an energic dog that will go bike riding/etc with you.

No personal experience, but I've heard wonderful things about Great Danes.

I've always been a big fan of the scotties. I just think it's funny how they somewhat hover and flutter when walking.

I love cocker spaniels as i just got a 8 week old puppy her name is megan she is chocolate in colour i have posted a pic on here but it's not a very good one

Australian shephards are great...and about the sticks in the fur Puppers (my aussie) has never had any stuck in his fur, I guess cause its so silky and as far as grooming we brush him every few days and shave him at the start of sumemr lol...he loves to play, follows you anywhere and everywhere...hes so smart and he would never hunt any animals...lol good luck on the search

A friend of mine has a German Shorthaired pointer.She is old now,but really sweet.They are quite active dogs and need lots of excercise.

German short-hairs, vizlas, weimaraners, and some of the hounds would all fit your requirements. Along with beagles, these are some of my favorite breeds. They are generally healthy, active, and trainable. (Some of the hounds can be kind of stubborn...but they're still very cool dogs with good personalities). The following site is great when trying to decide among various breeds. It gives a "star rating" for strengths and weaknesses of each dog as well as lots of good pictures. I hope this helps. Good luck. <-Steve->

Good recommendations, guys. :)

I would not get a Greyhound, though - they really can't be let off leash in an unfenced area. They will chase any small animals and just take off. This might not be a good idea if you are in the country, etc.

I would say:
Lab
German Shepard
Pointers (in general)
Bull Terrier (a VERY hardy smallish dog) - Rhonda has some. Rhonda??? :)
Pitbull

Very good point.I just went back and re-read her post and realized she is looking for a dog that will stay close to home.I must of missed that!

In that case,a greyhound would not suit your needs!

When I was young we had a Norwiegan Elkhound. Very beautifal and a very good dog. I loved that dog. Her name was Laser.

I am very satisfied with my black lab. Very smart and good with people. Loves the water. I have been thinking about a little lap dog for my next one. Not quite teacup size, but a very little indoor dog.
