Breed Characteristics / Behaviour

Some really good guides for picking a Dog; fairly detailed guidelines as to how much time and exercise each breed will need, how bright / how easy to train (not necessarily the same thing!).

Some good sites out there for checking out breed characteristic / behaviour if you're thinking about getting a dog and want to make sure its the right dog for you and your (family) circumstances.

One such site is http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/characteristics

The main headings covered include:
