What gun dogs do you have and why?

I have a Griff, for the same reasons as gonehuntin. Hunt everything from Sept to March. I like having a dog that is good on early season chickens, and can still take a long blind across icy waters for Canada's in January. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170201/d7ab7d5bdf94cff212e6929d6a5bd189.jpg...

Yep, in my opinion any well bred dog will be a solid retriever, regardless of breed. When I call my dogs a retriever, it refers to waterfowl hunting. My britts were great waterfowl dogs til the water got too cold.

There are some great breeders of WPG in Wisconsin, can get some info if you'd like. Have never hunted with a PP, but have heard great things. I do hunt every bird available with my griff though, from early season dove and chickens to late season ducks and geese. Couldn't ask for any more.

I do the same style of hunting, for many years I had a lab and a brittany. Both were great upland and waterfowl dogs, weather permitting of course. I wanted to have only one dog, I got a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, couldn't be any happier, surpassed all my expectations both upland and waterfowl.

Si, I disagree with bonasa and don't think you've done anything wrong by exposing your dog to running roosters. As long as your pup doesn't catch any birds, he's not learning any bad habits.
