To choose the right hunting dog, you first need to determine the type of hunting that you are most interested than you should check the health of the dog. If the dog has a good pedigree, but has not received proper training, you should only buy it if it has a balanced and calm character.
Examine field diplomas of the puppy if any. A diploma speaks about the working quality of the dogs tested by expert handlers. The higher the degree of the field of diplomas, the better will be the hunting dog.
It should be noted that males are generally more mobile, stubborn and independent but they require constant monitoring and strict upbringing. However, due to a more powerful body, it is easier to work in harsh field conditions. Females more docile and affectionate and yet easy to train but they hardly can resist the heat while hunting.
Paying special attention to the physical condition of the puppy is another important aspect. Choose large puppy with a good appetite. His hair must be clean, smooth and shiny. Ears should be without brown discharge and odour. Eyelids should not be turned out and the eyes should be clear without purulent discharge.
