Funny that JT's already been here saying this. But I was going to say Rigby.
I don't do small dogs, not because I don't like them but because I'm a klutz and I always worry about stepping on them.
Ok she's about knee height to me and I'm not that tall But she seems to be fine with me tripping on her.
I dislike clingy, in your face dogs. I like companionship but I really dislike obsessive attention.
This describes her pretty well. Sometimes she'll come chill on the couch while I'm watching tv, other times she's off doing her own thing.
I don't mind brushing but I don't do clipping
I am good with muddy footprints, dog hair but I dislike drooling.
Easiest coat I've ever dealt with. Any dirt/mud dries off within a few minutes and falls
I train as needed but I am not generally a stickler for obedience, more into behavior.
From what I understand, most kelpies aren't too much for obedience either
I don't have a competetive bone in my body, but a day with me could involve anything from popcorn and movies to a 20 mile hike and some whitewater rafting
I've been working over a year to get Rigby to be more competitive. I really think she would be happy either way. And she's perfectly happy chilling on the couch all day but has the stamina to hike, run, swim etc.
I don't like shy, quiet dogs and I don't like super biddable. I respect a challenge. I enjoy a dog that will look at me and say' you threw it, you fetch it' once in a while.
I've had people laugh at me for the arguments I get in with Rig out in the field. She's usually quite compliant with fetch, but there's always those few times...
Throw the frisbee, she looks at it, I say "get the frisbee", she barks at me. Then we've got a bit of a back and forth banter until I give up and go get it.
Soooo yeah if she's anything like a typical Kelpie, that may be a breed idea for you
