ain't nothin'- but a hound dog

|I should say a few things before I answer your questions…This is more of a future breed match because I’m currently a college student so I will be getting this dog in a few years. Also I have been working for a professional dog walking business for more than 2 years now. I do not consider myself a novice dog owner.
I definitely want an activities partner! I will look forward to taking him out for exercise such as playing fetch, biking, swimming, long walks and things like that.
I’m actually not sure what you mean by soft, moderate or hard? Are you talking about their demeanor? Could you give me examples of breeds that are soft or hard?
I’m not quite sure how much time the dog will be left alone because, like I said, this will be in a few years. The reason I am not getting a dog now is primarily because I know I do not have the amount of time for him that he deserves.
All the dogs I have “owned” were more of family pets. So, I was really too young to train them myself. I have had in my household a female corgi mix, two male beagles, a female boxer, and a male miniature pinscher. But like I said before I am quite familiar with many breeds through work. Technically this will be my first dog I will be training myself but I believe I am very prepared and can handle dogs more challenging than for example a golden retriever.
