    It would be very difficult to find a tick on a Husky.

    I was going to say boxer, weimerana or german short haired pointer - they all qualify for short coats and sheer energy as well as being tall. As would a hungarian Visla, maybe a ridgeback, maybe an english pointer.

    And for going with horses - maybe a dalmation. They aren't too bright but they can be very obedient and loyal. Or a greyhound - my cousins do eventing and they have greyhounds and whippets. Another does long distance stuff with arabs, and she has airdale (which would need close clipping same as a standard poodle), and a giant kelpie cross.

    I think you can get a kind of short haired border collie too - but the coat is longer than a boxers. ACD have quite fluffy coats - would be hard to find a tick. And then there's bull arab - which are a bit like bull terriers on stilts. Or maybe a boxer x bull terrier. Kind of - but could be mistaken for pit bull I suppose.

    and then there is the pharoah hound but you'd need the recall dvd to get that one to come back. And lots of socialisation as a puppy.

    There's a bull arab x boxer and a couple of ridgeback types at the Cairns RSPCA - and if you go there - you'd see more of what they have and get a feel for what dogs you could detect ticks on.

    Ok I may be a little bias here, but everything that I read youre looking for is what my Ridgeback is. I had a similar criteria when I was looking at which breed to look for.

    They are a medium/large breed (more on the large side), short hair, active and playful, GREAT deterent for intruders with a big bark thats not overly used and doesnt bite, great for agility (when fully grown though), affectionate (but can be a little stand-offish with strangers), full of energy but at the same time will sleep most of the day if you'd like to do the same

    Ridgebacks arent suited to being backyard dogs though, they really need to be an indoor dog and be around the family. As I said, may be biased, but they seem to fit the criteria

    EDIT: I read every other post except for the one where you said you decided on a great dane hahah, sorry . Maybe a Ridgie as a third dog? haha
