The group 8 of the Retrievers, Flushing Dogs and Water Dogs, It is made up of highly specialized hunting dogs, whose work often complements that of other hunting dogs, either Retrievers, that recover the wounded game, Spaniel, that track game over the roughest terrain, or like the Water Dogs, that do not reject any pond or swamp.
Although they are perfectly adapted to hunting and have been bred for that purpose, these dogs are also making their way into homes more and more, thanks to its flexible and very friendly character and its easy training. They are very sociable dogs, although calm and cautious.
Besides being highly appreciated companion dogs, they are also good guide and working dogs. In fact, they need to help and work to prosper.
The Flushing Dogs they are hunting dogs that seek independently, methodical and meticulous hunting in bushes or reeds, namely, on unclear terrain and beyond the trainer's control. If the dog finds a game, becomes a noisy tracker and leads the piece towards the hunters waiting outside. This behavior is an instinctive behavior that the dog inherited from its ancestor, the wolf.
These dogs are also suitable for searching for injured animals (sweat job) and to bring (recover) light game animals shot down.
