    Looking for a breeder of Golden Retrievers (hunting dogs)

    Post  Jackie on Fri Jan 22, 2010 1:25 am

    I'm helping a friend who's looking for a new hunting dog, as his Lab is getting on in years. He's had Golden Retrievers before from hunting stock, and he'd be interested in one again. However, most Golden breeders I find are raising pets or show dogs.

    Does anyone here know of Golden breeders who raise hunting dogs???

    Thanks!

    I'm going to refer you to another forum: www.outdoorsmenforum.ca. It is a forum dedicated to hunting/fishing/trapping in Alberta and I know I've seen a lot of threads come up with people looking for the same thing. It's a fairly populated forum so I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for there.

    Good luck and let us know what she comes up with.

    Doberman for hunting?

    Post  DobbieDobermanPinscher on Tue Oct 26, 2010 4:31 am

    This thread made me thinking. Do you think doberman pinschers would be great in hunting? I mean do they have good hunting instincts or are natural hunters? Or can this be done through doberman training. Just curious.

    I'm not too sure on that one. I haven't heard of many Dobermans that are trained as hunting dogs, but I'm sure with the right training, they can become one.

    Can a dobe do it? I am sure they can with the right training, if they have the correct drives. However I doubt you are going to be able to out run/score a field bred lab/springer/GSP with a dobe. I can't see my dobie jumping into frigid November water to retrieve a bird tho.

    Thanks for your inputs guys! Appreciate it. I also don't know if they are good in hunting. But I agree, with the right training, that may be possible.
