Post your favorite breed and why you prefer it. Also any stories of how you got into your breed would be great.

To all the Brittany people. I was talking for people to post their favorite hunting breeds, which means they have to hunt, Brittany's just don't qualify! :D 8) Didn't you know that all pointing dogs keep all their instincts in the top half of their tail?

Just kidding, I truly meant to enter them, but it was late and I was tired. Really very sorry. I'd add it now, but then the rest of the Brittany people would select it and there wouldn't be a true reading.

Sorry, :oops:

I guess that explains your post about tail docking and only wanting long tailed dogs. Good thing there are quite a few of us around that know how good of a pointing dog the brittany really is!!
I guess the other good thing you need to know is that the brittany actually has a brain to store their required information about hunting and pointing and such and doesn't need to store what they know in the top half of their tail!! :lol: :P :roll: :wink:

With out a long explanation as to why one breed would be your favorite, it means nothing to just vote in a poll. So I pretty much agree that the dog that finds birds and points is my favorite and I have found those in every breed.

I'll stir the pot a little too...

Favorite pointing dog is probably a setter or pointer.
Favorite versatile dog is a DD, then GSP.

I have to cast my vote for Drahthaars, but any well trained dog that'll point,find down game and retrieve is all right with me. Wes

At this time I have to say My Britts have been my favorite I have hunted over alot of dogs and they definately had a ton of drive and seemed to exist to please me. I let a freind talk me into my current project a Eng. Pointer and at 6 mo he has a ton of "bird drive" my challenge with him is controll he definately has the instinct to hunt I just need to mold it so he hunts for me, I think by the time he is 1 he is going to be trully amazing and I may have to change my mind but right now I miss My laid back Britts I had 20 years ago they where amazing hunters and companions.

I also picked other because apparently the Brittany didn't make the POINTING dog list.
