Looking for a dog to accompany you outdoors, especially hunting in the field or to field trials and hunting tests? If so, choosing a dog from the American Kennel Club Sporting Group may be an ideal fit. Developed to flush, point and retrieve game, sporting breeds such as Pointers, Retrievers, Setters and Spaniels are well-suited for hunting. Keep in mind these hunting dogs require regular, vigorous exercise.
Some of the most popular sporting dog breeds include the Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Irish Setter, Labrador Retriever, Vizsla, and Weimaraner.
