I favored several retriever breeds for loyalty, yet open to other pups or rescue. Please educate me.
Thx.

My two cents... aussie cattle dog mixes (because that's what I have and of course I think she's the best dog on the planet) and/or whatever the nearest rescue org has on hand. My pooch actually counts for both categories =)

Cant say she's terribly in love with being stuck in the back seat for long trips, although she finally settled down on my last trip camping up on the rim. Really its more about my lack of training her than any issues she might have with it. Just gotta get her used to it gradually I think.



I can't imagine any specific breed being better for wheeling, and I've seen the whole range out there on runs.

This dog can actually drive your rig while you ground guide him. Or vice versa.

No really. Wink

Aussie cattle dogs are the best! Mine actually gets very sad if the FJ starts up and he knows he's not coming along. Thankfully that doesn't happen very often.

I think it all depends on if the dogs love to go with you.. get along with other dogs and are low maintenence. Unfortunately these 2 love to go but have become mean with other dogs and high maintenence... lot like my wife! Evil or Very Mad LOL!!

Sorry Nick, Titan is a blast, but I cast my vote for Toby. Best trail-dog ever. I might be a touch biased though. Wink

Hell, *I'LL* vote for Toby. Best-behaved dog I've ever seen. Mine would never be so calm around so many people, dogs, new environment, etc.

Thanks! Yes, he really is an amazing pup. Love that sweet boxer face!

Here is a Trail-Toby in action:

I give another vote to GSD's even if mine does get car sick sometimes. Nothing a few dramamine can't fix though.
