Why do some people say that if you let a birddog help hunt rabbits that it wll ruin her for feathers?
I was looking up German Shorthair Pointers the other day. In Germany, this breed is used for bird hunting, small game hunting, big game hunting, and even vermon dispatching. All one dog. In fact, the best GSP's are suppose to do all hunting tasks. I guess this breed was devloped for the man that could not afford to buy different breeds for different hunting tasks.
Does anyone here use their bird dog for other types of hunting? Has it caused any problems?
Are dogs in Germany just smarter then ours?
