What I meant with the temperament - is that my LC boy does not differ in temperament from his stock coat siblings..He has just as much drive and what not as them...just because he is LC doesn't make him more 'mild'. He is from stock coated parents anyways. I think that if a breeder was breeding specifically for the long coat, and those dogs also had a 'milder' temperament that they were breeding for, than that makes sense, but you can breed a stock coat with a milder temperament also.
I think the article saying LC have milder temperaments is just nonsense. If they randomly pop up in breedings from stock coated parents, their temperament isn't any different.
