Thread: which wirehair ?

  1. #1

    which wirehair ?

    If you were after a real allround dog eg. for deer work, dogging in, rough shooting, foxing etc would you go for a HWV or a GWP. Have seen a bit of both myself but allways interested in other opinions, everyone has got one thanks.

    sorry, should have been more specific, what in the way of dogs and bitches have you ? I see you started out with twice as many girls to boys, I am a dog person myself and with a "few" cockers I am used to strong willed dogs.

    I am an HWV owner, if you are used to dealing with strong willed dogs, dont get a HWV as they are easily upset.
    But if you do and can get on with it your blood pressure will drop considerably after working spaniels!!!

    Thanks Wf1, I go to a shoot where somebody beats with a HWV and you are right, it is the most chilled gun dog ever.

    My oldest which is a bitch has a full CV, everything I want her to do on deer, tracking, walk stalking indicating etc.
    Sits on a peg, retrieves , beats,dogs in easy, awsome on Grouse, she is a bag filler in every sense of the word.
    I worked spaniels for 45 years," god help" me my blood pressure is now normal.
