What Dogs Are You Using?

Recommended Posts

As the title says,

 

I have been reading the Bushing section, but in reality most of what I do is walked up shooting.

 

I was just wondering if anyone uses anything other than spaniels/labs/pointers etc.

Fair play, I can remember various people having dogs of unknown breeding they used as rough shooting dogs. I say they were mostly staffy/terrier/spaniel mixes.

I take my lad beating he loves it, works well with the spaniels, beating line only, he's not a retriever.

Cracking looking dog. To be honest I always seem to do my own picking up with my dog training ability.

Used to take a terrier beating until the wee shit got the knack of dropping down every hole in the vicinity haha

Not had much of a problem with it myself, but have set myself up to find out with my next dog.

 

I have to say if I hadn't been on this forum I would have bought a terrier and got on with it without thinking, without problems? I wouldn't be able to say.

Big mongrelly terrier, mainly he's a bushing and cover dog but turns his hand to flushing to the gun very well. He knows the difference and keeps much closer when its just me and him than when he's working with lurchers.

Springer and cocker friend has a westy that will work the line like a demon quarters like a well trained spaniel

I have a Red and White Irish Setter x Springer dog - A Dropper.

 

He is in 12 now and was my first dog. All the old guys I go out rough shooting with say I could spend my life looking for another dog like him...

 

He goes through any cover, he wont fully set but will creep up on game and gives one bark once it is in the air. Serious woodcock dog.

 

He has a hard mouth but that is my own fault as I used to bring him out to flush foxes (He has caught and killed 3 foxes on his own accord down the years)

Like you say you can't ever walk out and pick one up. But I do like it when a random cross cones good.

 

I've seen a westie that took a few rats. Good for a westie is the best way of putting it.
