|If you want a strong bond you should stick to the naturally handler-bonded breeds. These include the biddable groups, primarily gun dogs and herders, and the easier working dogs. All are eminently trainable dogs. A soft dog is very sensitive and not forgiving of mistakes. Must be handled gently. But generally not overly stubborn. Would you like examples of soft and hard breeds?
And I must agree with Selli. I actually had a harder, field Golden, full of drive. Great nerves. Would have been a fantastic OB dog. Learned in about 2 reps, knew more than 150 words, could discrimate objects, etc.
Also, some breeds are sharper, this is especially found in the herders. Some breeds also are more "neurotic."
