Less shedding

Less barking. Working on that.

Don't think I can fix the shedding though. If I rake out any more of her coat, she's going to be naked.

I agree 100% on the lifespan!!
Also, I would make mine braver, so that they're not afraid of thunderstorms, fireworks & other loud noises. It breaks my heart to see them so scared.

Lifespan first,

A very distant second - his very quick reaction time (threshold!) to things he considers threats!

Yes, lifespan! Felix is only 2 and I already don't know what I'll do without him!

Other than that, his shedding. His hair is EVERYWHERE!! His fear of thunderstorms. And his recall. He's getting better though. He very much has "Shiny object syndrome" during training.

His love of anything in the trashcan
Eating gravel / mulch
Barking at me / my husband
Jumping on the couch
Stealing socks

-these are all training lapses on our part so we are still working on them

I wish Sib would not be so excited when she see's people--either out or coming to the house...As for the life span--I think that goes for all of us..fur and skin..
