Perhaps somebody who ones one will describe to me exactly what kinds of pets doves are, in general and compared to other birds. Are they messy?, etc.

They're birds. They eat, drink, and make bird poop. Actually, doves are basically pigeons, with white feathers. They're very similar in behavior to any other non-predator bird of similar size. You have to keep them in bird cages if you don't want bird poop all over the place.

As a bird worker I can tell you that they are pets and treat them with respect. As you would with your dog, cat or any other animal

I have little experience with birds, but how long can a dove stay in its cage, how often does it need attention, and is it any different compared to other birds, behavior and hygene wise. I ask because I'm simply curious if a dove fits my life style.

Yes, I've heard Dovepage is a great recource to use before and after you buy one. More of training and taking care of them.
