Unless you’re prepared for it, a smart (intelligent) dog may not be the best choice; they easily learn things (some you want them to learn and others you may regret they learned).

parkowner, you must be a poodle owner. If so then you must know that the "standard" refers to size nothing else. Myself and many others consider the Goldendoodle to be the epitome of the two breeds. Low to zero shed, smart and easy to train, athletic, super social and great
companions. As far as size ours is 65-70 lbs so he's never mistaken for a horse, but he sure looks different after his swim. Also he keeps our groomer employed as he goes every 4-5 weeks
To quote a nursery rhyme "if you don't have a whole poodle, a half-a-poodle will do. If you don't have a Half-a-poodle God bless you!"


I guess that means you fall into the "typical poodle owner" category. If you read what I said again you'll find I didn't degrade poodles. What ever dog makes you happy is the right one. I wanted a Doberman but my wife wanted a dog that wouldn't possibly scare our young grandchildren, the youngest was 3 at the time or other people. As you can tell she got it. I don't regret it as we couldn't have gotten a better suited dog for us and our travels. It's funny when we have been in campgrounds for a few days we have run into people who upon seeing our dog have said "Oh this must be Max we've heard so much about him" That's the kind of good impression he makes on people that they tell others about him

The best dog is the one that chooses you.

Bravo! Dog ownership is a partnership-if it's right just about everything else will fall into place.

There is NO "one-size-fits-all" and trying to espouse otherwise is nonsense. Are some breed's temperaments better suited for certain purposes? Absolutely. But not every dog reads the rule book. One must consider ALL attributes of the animal AND him/herself before a decision is made. To consider other's input on certain attributes is fine but to obtain a dog solely based on someone else's idea of "perfect" is irresponsible. Make your own judgement.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Many years ago we traveled with a small built shepherd. He was great. But when he go dirty or wet it was not fun. We considered it now that we are older but dw will not walk a dog in rain to cg dog park or if it is too cold out. Some places tell you that you have to board (thier place) when you leave camper for protection from temperatures if there is a power failure of air conditioning. My niece travels with a tiny poodle breed that uses pads. It works out well for them. Nothing like a good dog to travel with but I am a large breed kind of guy.

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I guess I'm leaning toward a Sheltie again. I spoke to our local vet that we had used in the past and he is going to get in touch with some breeders in our area, so waiting to hear from him

Thanks

Catahoula Leopard Cur here , I think they all like to travel as long as they can be with a loving care taker.

You have to have a close relationship with them. If you give them exercise, any breed will work. I travel with 3 herding dogs and they really like it.

The smarter the better. That's why when I travel, I bring a Border Collie.
