6 Great Hunting Dogs For Your Family


Growing up on a farm we always had dogs around, and many of those dogs were hunting breeds. Some of my best memories are of following the chase as a group of beagles harried a cottontail or listening for a coonhound to strike a trail on a cold, moonlit November night. I was always amazed when a pointing breed locked up tight on the scent of a hidden bird, and I was thankful that there were labs to retrieve downed ducks from half-frozen impoundments after the shot.

Here’s a list of dog breeds that make wonderful family companions that moonlight as hard-charging hunting partners. Who knows, the right hunting dog for you might be right at your feet as you read this.
