Does anyone have a spaniel (cocker or springer) that they use to stalk and track deer?
Not likely to be the deer stalker's first choice admitedly but I've always been keen on getting a spaniel for game work and just as a general sporting companion. Perhaps a relatively calm tempered cocker who can walk to heel and be content with prolonged quiet and slow walks may be a possibility.
P.S. I am aware that they can need a lot of exercise - that is a plus point for me. I'm just curious to know what they are like when you do need them to keep quiet and close to heel.
