Fandogg, please don't ask for advice and then tell people not to respond. This is an open forum where people can express their opinions as long as they aren't insulting others.

Its true we're all nice to each other here and you keep on being rude and insulting and people get to the point where they don't want to help you.

What if these two dogs are in truth equally as good as the other? Big deal

This would be a question for a more specific dog forum, or a hunting forum that includes hunting dog breeds.

Smkie might be able to give some insight here since she's worked with hunting dogs a great deal. If she doesn't see this thread, you might PM her and ask.

We've only ever used Labradors for "retrieving", we always use English Springer Spaniels for "Flushing" as they are ideally suited to going through dense woodland and brambles!
I've never used a Brittany Spaniel for Phesant shoots and to be honest don't know anyone who has!!
Each dog is ideally suited to one job, Labradors are too large for "Flushing" in my opinion as they get stuck in the undergrowth and then get distressed. Springers can be a bit Hyper for "Retrieving" and sometimes run away with the birds.
It really depends which aspect of shooting interests you, will you be shooting and therfore need a dog to retrieve or will you be Beating the birds up and need a dog to flush them out.

I agree with Gus.....each hunting breed does it's own thing. A retriever stays at your side while you shoot.....a pointer shows you where the prey is. I don't think the spaniel does more than run around and enjoys the outting.

Fandogg, why do you come on here? It is though you are only here to antagonize people. It is really annoying.
