I have owned multiple dogs (both male and female) for six years, and have worked with trainers on developing good habits and breaking bad ones. All three of my current ...

What Dorothy would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I'd just like to know the basics of their personality, and to know if there are any habits/restrictions that need specific attention.
