Thread: New dog?

  1. #1

    New dog?

    I've been looking for a while now and would really like to have a dog to accompany me on my stalking, rough shooting and also when I'm fishing.
    My question is would it be wise to buy one when I work offshore for 3 weeks at a time, wondering if I would have enough time to train it being away half the time.

    Really like the Hungarian Vizsla's..

    Well you are nearly there, just insert wirehaired into your choice of breed!

    Dogs are much more adaptable than alot of folk think, mine lives with me for a couple of weeks then with my parents for a couple of weeks whilst I am offshore. Its not perfect but it does work.

    My GWP spends most of the time living with my son (next door) his patterdale terrier, and lurcher.
    He walks it lets it into his house and feeds it when I am working away.
    Despite this, other than responding to basic commands it will not work for him though, and when he is beating on our shoot the dog will stay with me at a peg rather than work the line with him!!!!!
    Strange things dogs.

    Wirehaired or shorthaired, other than the obvious, what's the difference?. Temprement etc ?

    IMO GWPs are stronger willed and more aggressive than the shorthaired, and for an all round dog they take a lot of beating, are fiercely loyal and superb guard dogs.
