Roverlab was a chocolate lab, best friend ever. My Swissie, at 20 months, has proven to be a very, very good dog. She's a 100lb, food -motivated, shedding companion, with a deep booming bark and relatively lazy ( when compared to a lab).

Roverlab is now British 4x4 Specialists.

He is toothy and likes to chew at everything including the kids.
Good to know, I would think that is a puppy phase but things/wrists are still being destroyed...

As a breed though I would highly recommend them. My Greater Swiss wouldn't leave my side and I did nothing to train her that way, they are amazingly loyal.
Thanks, I will check them out as well. I am looking for a loyal dog. Ideally be able to train the animal to walk without a leash.

We do have 3, we look all the time however they are all terrier mixes or pit bull mixes. I have had terriers, I dont want to do that again. To territorial and didnt play well with others.

Pitbulls I dont have an issue with, just never cared for them as much as labs, retrievers.

I do believe the method of youll know when you feel it. Thats how ive made all important decisions thus far and its worked out (more or less)

Ive had Brittany Spaniels since I was a kid, love em as we are wired the same. First 1-2/3 years of puppydom (brittany spaniel) are WFO. I imagine I will always have a Brittany Spaniel in the herd, they arent for lazy people.
I have family members who have/had them.. I always felt they were active when you wanted them to be and calm when you needed them to be. To each their own, Brittany spaniels may be to active for what we are looking for but thanks for the 2 cents. Maybe in the future when we have more land.

She does require some regular (weekly) brushing at a minimum to prevent matting in the hair.

She's stabilized in weight now at around 55 lbs.
Good to know, sounds like he/she working great!
