I am the owner of Labs which I use for shooting and picking up on pheasant days as well as deer dogs. Generally speaking they work very well on all of the activities as well as being great family pets. Problem is they tend to pant and breath heavily with excitement all the time they are out after deer. it doent seem to matter how often or how long they are out it is "pant pant pant" all the time. Not much of a problem when it is windy but on still days it must scare deer off.
Question is why do they do that and what can be done to prevent that behaviour in next one. I am sure it is too late for the current 2
