I would say no and yes lol.

There are ‘types’, but different types will very much suit different ground.

I ran a line bred beagle / teckle / terrier / spaniel back home, which was great. Came down south and on this ground etc it was a nightmare.

For me bushing dogs fit into three types - pures (terrier, spaniel, hound etc), and then ones with hound and ones without. Ie terrier beagle vs spaniel beagle. 
 

What suits depends on ground and how you hunt them - ie on own, in a pack, flushing to guns or runners, or hunting runners alongside etc. 

 

what sort of dogs suit you now? you're hants now yeah?

I much prefer hounds and hound types to anything else, but sadly the roads, boundary’s and people make that a bit of a tough one.

Currently messing about with a spaniel, and a terrier. But having had a good few folk here on an invite (we have some good bushing days with a gang of us), I would say that spaniel x terrier and terriers that dont drop to ground, or at least are fox only, are the right thing for doing the kind of cover we have. 
 

I want it out the cover, if it’s not stopped, I don’t want the little dogs going across a 100 acre field and on and on if that makes sense. 
 

Back home, the on and on was the bit I loved!
