MaltiPoo, Moodle - it is a Maltese x Poodle - I'm not really keen on fancy names for bitsas.
I have a speckled herding bitsa... ie a speshull dog.
I gotta admire Cuttlefish's computer desk, there is no room even for a budgie to do that on my desk.
The Possibilities in Dog Training | Susan Garrett's Dog Training Blog
You can have a dog do a strict competition heel - and be loving it. You can get the same thing and the dog be hating it too. It all depends how you train it. If it's only about fun for the dog - then your dog is in charge and no trainer recommends that. They're not any better than 2 yo children at making decisions in their own best interests.
