Sure this thread has been covered before but ill give you my situation and see if you lads can give me some advice.
Thinking of getting a dog that I can take out stalking. I want it almost exclusively for deer work (not for feathered game etc), I like the idea of a dog that helps me locate live deer via air scent and also is useful when locating downed deer that have ran.
I am really keen on a German Wire haired pointer but iv read they don't like being left alone and can be destructive and bark etc this isn't acceptable as I have neighbours. I know theres a huge variation between lines so if thats the case is there a line that would be more suitable for me? The other option is a BMH but im not really too sure about this breeds characteristics away from the field.
I do work, the dog would be kept outside (free running) but I would be able to take it out at say 6:30am for 1/2 hour and around 5:30 for an hour. Obviously at weekends a lot more. I know a Lab would be an option but im just not that keen on them.
What do you guys think?
