Harmony in the Home

One of the most important things to me is harmony in my home.  I currently have 2 schnauzers and 3 cats.  Do they all like each other?   Two of the cats can't stand the dogs and my mini schnauzer hates the cats.  But they cannot fight or control who goes where and when.  It took time to set these bounderies  but consistency has paid off.  Now I can be on the couch with both dogs and a cat may choose to come up for cuddles.
When I choose a puppy from our planned litter.  I will be looking for a puppy with pack drive. I will not choose the pushy one nor the quiet one but the one who wants to get along.
This is what I place my highest value.  What do you place your highest value?   Plan to have the animals with behaviors that reflect that values.
