My husband and I want to have one of these dogs, but not sure which one. Neither one of us works, so companionship is no problem. We do like to travel and would bring our dog to Hawaii (we are aware of the rabies quarantine, but would have all shots in order). I want our dog to be playful as well as settle down when we do. We do not want a yappy or aggresive dog. Any suggestions? Do they both like supervised swimming in calm waters?
Thank you!
