i want a working animal that can flush cover to a gun, retrieve and be of use on a days ferreting, that is marking holes and standing guard.
there are a few things i need to know as i realise how serious taking on a dog is, the dog will live outside in a run, what size should this be and the dog will be walked at least once but mostly twice a day.
is a diet of dry complete working dog food acceptable or should a raw diet be given?
Am i on the right lines of breed or do you have any other suggestions ?
does pet insurance cover the necessary parts for working dogs or is there a special typ of insurance as i would not like to be in a position where i could not cover vets bill?
we have plenty of space in the countryside and unting is really my main hobby so work for the dog would be plentiful,
thanks in advance
