What Other Dog Would You Have?

Post by 3Britts » Thu Feb 10, 2011 3:40 pm

For some time now, I have been pondering what will be the next breed of hunting dog that I will bring home. I have decided that I would like to get a Red and White Irish Setter. I love look of that duel color working a field and their disposition.
So, what would be your next breed?

Going to be a shorthair for me. Just love their versatility, biddabilty, and clownish personality.

I'd get a black shorthair. I think they are really sharp looking.

Tough call. I'd probably go with an EB, black and white GSP, or heavily ticked pointer (any color)....in that order. Ideally though I'd like to own a dog from each breed before my time is up. So many dogs so little time! :D

I once had an Irish Setter out of show stock who at the age of 1 year when I had to get rid of him because of a relocation I had made would not point a sparrow much less anything else but man that dog would hunt the he!! out of quail and pheasant, flush them, and would retrieve anything you could shoot. Some day I would like to have an Irish Setter out of field stock to hunt over. Not the Red and White Setter and not a Red Setter but a real Irish Setter with hunting in his blood and on his mind.

None of you guys voted? I voted and there was only one response. I have run with enough dogs of different breeds that I don't feel compelled to switch. Brittany here.

I've owned a pudel-pointer (surpisingly good ), an Irish Setter (useless), a GSP (great bird dog but alpha and strong willed), a Britt ( so hyper it committed suicide by jumping out of a half open car window at 50 M.P.H.) and a Ryman English Setter (currently 16 years old) along with various terriers and other assorted non hunting breeds. I'll never own another dog that isn't an English Setter/Llewellin and I'm looking for a pup as we speak. Just one man's opinion.

I doubt I ever have own a different breed other than Brittany's but if I did it would either be a EP or a English setter.

I don't ever see me having anything but EPs, they are tough, dumb, and crazy like me.

Realistically I'd prob wind up with a GSP (that Cajun Casey talked me into) so I voted for that.

The wife has said when her rescue Redbone dies she kinda wants a rescue Vizla.
I have English Pointers because they don't ever grow up either...

I've got a Lab who hunts well, but hunted over 2 Britts the other day and WOW were they good, hunted all day in warm weather. I'd love to get one like that for the early season here in AZ.

Llewellin setter, have a GSP now ,and I grouse hunt a lot. I also heard that they are bred with natural abilities to retrieve and point, so it would be a little less training than other dog breeds.

Have hunted with brits and one lab in my life, couldn't ask for any more out of them. Tuesday I brought home my WPG pup, do as much waterfowl as upland hunting, cause I don't have to travel to do so. Really wanted to consolidate to one dog, hope all works out, he has a lot to live up to after my brits and lab.

Should be checkboxes instead of radio buttons so you can make multiple selections. I have always had shorthairs. The only other 2 I'd consider are pointers and setters.

3Brits,
Because we like the Gordon and Ryman dogs so much, I will probably add another Gordon to our Grouse dog kennel next, picking from a proven Gordon Grouse dog line, I was definitely not satisfied with the Red Setters bidability & temperment when introduced into my kennel, probably will not go that way again any time soon. We have 6 gun dogs in our Grouse dog kennel right now, and until our 14 year old SM passes away, probably no additional animals will be purchased. We did look at the German Longhair recently, they are nice dogs also. Cheerstone my Weimer is only a year old and doing just fine, one Weimar in our house at a time.

I am 64 and have serious health challenges, so my present 21 mos old Llewellin will probably be my last. If I were to get another, it would be a Llewellin.

Pretty narrow list there. After being around a few, I would look toward a French Spaniel, then a small Musty. both very Nice hunting dogs.

Along with it, definately a Chessy.
The best part of training is seeing the light come on in your little prot'eg'e.
