You want to enter a dog contest and, since you don't have a dog, you go to your friendly "Rent a Pet Center" for a canine to work with you in the contest. The dog will need to go through an obstacle course quickly and accurately in order to win. There are two dogs to choose from.

Identify each and explain how each will influence your decision.
