NEED HELP ON GETTING HUNTING DOG

Post by steve922 » Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:16 pm

hello im new hunting and new to the site and have a question. I already have a German Shepherd and I want to get a hunting dog for rabbit, phesant, and duck. I've been looking at German Shorthaired Pointers and Basset Hounds. I like both breeds and I had a Brittany Spaniel before but he was never trained just a house dog. Can anyone give me some insight in to the pros and cons of either Breed for what I want. Thank you in advance

I would look more to the breeder as what the breeder breeds for is the key...you get a show or house pet through papers together type fill the market breeder you may just get a pet find a breeder who puts together hunting dams and sires and you will have better chance at getting a dog that has the base foundation of drive needed for what you want
