Gundog breeds and breeders

Gundog Breeds

Gundogs (also called bird dogs) are a category of dog breed developed to assist hunters to find and retrieve game, usually birds.

Gundogs are divided into three primary classes: Retrievers, flushing spaniels, and pointing breeds.

There are several types of gundogs, each type consisting of multiple breeds. These are Pointers, Setters, Retrievers, Flushing Spaniels and Waterdogs. The list below contains a more detailed list of the breeds.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PEDIGREE GUNDOG TO COMPETE IN SSAA RETRIEVING TRIALS.

Gundog Breeders

When purchasing a gundog puppy, you should always do your homework. This is not something to be rushed.

Questions like parentage, the kennels history and whether the actual breed that you are choosing is the right choice for you and your family/lifestyle or not, are all issues you need to raise.

UFR do not 'recommend' any particular breeders or breed, and it is your responsibility to do your research...however we have a number of wonderful supporters who have helped spread the word about retrieving under the SSAA, and we'd love to give them something back.
