Appy's are extremely intelligent( sometimes stubborn b/c they are intelligent), brave, and love people. I think they have wonderful personalities. Treats can go a long way with training. I think you are going to have great success. Good luck.
I can't say they are like QH in training situations. Appies are alwasy thinking of what they can get into or looking off into the distance for something more interesting to do. They need to be into everything.
