Thread: What dogs are you using?

  1. #1

    What dogs are you using?

    I thought it may be interesting to find out what dogs you're using and their strengths/weaknesses.

    I mainly use a Chesapeake Bay retriever for my wildfowling and rough shooting.

    I bought a border terrier with the intention of training him for deer tracking but he's actually being outclassed by a rescue Chesapeake bitch that i recently took in. She has a phenominal nose, is soft natured and quiet (doesn't whine, whimper, etc) Time will tell how successful i am at training her.

    I use a lab for tracking to be honest he is a good lad, he can be a little to independant for my liking but I beleive that is suposed to be a good trait in a deer dog!

    I have only once had to use him and it was on this little scab here about this time last year It was shot through the heart and what was left of the heart was sticking out of the exit wound. It stil managed to run 90m it went down hill towards watter then turned and went back up after the visable blood trail ran out the dog went straight to him in heavy foliage in less than 60 seconds.

    that is not a chesapeake dog, that is a grizzly bear!

    I am working on training my jack russel. he is a little t***. he will sit in my jeep until i make the shot and need him!

    I have used my wildfowling dog a lab, in the past and she is ok. really for the short distance stuff she didn't need any training. she found deer quickly and easily.

    Patterdale.....Sorry for cheesey photo!
    Sadly most of my shooting is from seats, and therefor not many deer go missing, but he always has a go at finding them in the car to keep him interested. On walks he will let me know deer are present well before I can see them. But he is by no stretch of the imagination a stalking dog, but has found dead deer in ditches/undergrowth.

    He is in the back!!

    He's still a pup, but he's a hard headed little bugger!
