I am searching for another upland pup. I guide at a local preserve and my dogs generally flush and retrieve 2000 birds yearly. I have always had the traditional flushing labs. I have seen quite a few breedings lately of pointing labs X flushers. I was wondering if anyone here has a dog with that type of breeding and what are the pros and cons. Thanks

I hunt alot of upland out in Oregon for chukars, quail, pheasants. My go to upland dog anymore is my English Setter backed up by my golden retriever he will hold while the golden flushes. My current pup is a Golden ret/English setter and she is 9 months old and she will point and flush just working on her still. Maybe a lab/gsp would be good also.


Heres the Dam Jasmine, and my pup Ruby



Sire my English setter dodge. AKC English setter and Field stud dog book registered I picked him up for free from a rescue of an abusive trainer who was beating his dogs really bad. Worked trust into him and now he is a big baby.



My english setter
pros. Long range, strong hold. never shocked him once they seem to listen well to whistle at long distances. will keep on top of moving birds quickly without kicking them up untill you get on top of him.

cons. very mouthy, burrs but nothing that johnsons baby oil and a brush doesnt take out.

For what it's worth, I guided at Blonhaven Hunt Club in southern Wisconsin for several years. Many clients specifically requested Taffey. On some days, Taffey would do a double (four hunt in the morning and another in the afternoon. She is a purebred, instinctive pointing Lab and by far the best dog I've ever had. That comment may cause a few tangents in this thread. ;)

However, she did everything you'd want as a pointer/retriever
(outstanding upland guide dog, multiple advanced hunt test titles and driven waterfowl retriever). If you search wisely, there are pointing Labs pups that would be just what you are looking for. Send me a PM and I will be happy to discuss this alternative.
