Most hunting dogs are very bright, and need a job. Many people confuse high energy with stupidity. And its simply not the case unless you are referring to the owner being stupid. Like I said earlier get one with a mixed pedigree, show and field, and you will have a better chance of having one you can tolerate being in the house.
