      I had a feeling Golden Retriever would be no:1 - beautiful dogs.

      For me it is GSD all the way, I love that they are smart, easy to train, loyal - happy to walk for miles and be active, but then come home and lie quietly at your feet - or on them.

      My advice in choosing a breed - would be to spend a day with the one you think would best suit. At first, I thought a weimaraner or collie.

      On paper, they are active - intelligent dogs. I found the border collie never stops - even indoors ball...ball....ball. The Weimaraner is about drawing attention to themselves - also a bit of a clown. The GSD suited me to perfection (although some people may get annoyed at being followed everywhere - even to the loo).
