    Border Collies are highly trainable and come in flat coats.

    The AWL site seems to be down right now but they have lots of dogs.

    However, if you're looking at cavvies you're probably more interested in smaller breeds

    I like tibbies - tibetan spaniels - not really the dog for me, but have a great reputation

    I also love love love cavvies BUT they have lots of health probs and you would need to go to a highly regarded breeder and even then you may not get a totally healthy dog.
    Thats ok! We are not experienced dog owners, this will be our first pet! But I am willing to research and learn all I can!

    It is SO hard to choose the right breed! We really do love the Beagle breed and are willing to put in the time and effort with regards to training but now I wonder if we may not have the skills being first time dog owners?

    And from one nebie to another, welcome
    Thanks for the welcome! I am assuming you have a Ridgeback? He is beautiful! My friend got a purebred Ridgeback last year and I just loved him! Such a loving dog! I would be looking at those if they wern't so big!
