Thread: Which dog?!

  1. #1

    Which dog?!

    I wouldn't know where to start on different deer dogs/ breeds, but quite like the idea of a dog to accompany me stalking.

    so, I didn't know what or which breeds would suit as a "companion" type dog. Which would be good around children? How are they with sheep, and other dogs, as we are on a sheep farm.? How does it work if your up high seats, would they sit patiently at the bottom!?

    as said, I'm a novice on the subject, and just exploring the idea at the moment.

    You will be only more confused asking that question on here.
    have a look at a bmh, vizla inc wire haired, Labradors, German wire haired pointer, spaniel, teckel, dacshund etc,
    choose one that suits yourself and your family.

    It will be all down to how well you train the dog

    Got to agree with the above comments. Choose one you like, research that specific breed and if suitable for your needs select a good breeder, don't dive in.

    Good luck!

    Small dogs are easier for upkeep and to haul up a stand.

    Have a read of the Guy Wallace book "The specialist gundog". Gives a really nice introduction to types of work, breeds of dog, some of the practicalities of owning working dogs (including a bit of the work life balance so many of us require of our dogs) and some tips for basic training. Might help you get closer...
