While there are plenty of crossovers, when it comes to bird hunting, dog breeds tend to fall into one of two main categories:
Upland bird dogs are engaged in hunting birds such as quail and pheasants that live in and around the tall grasses and shrubs that grow in fields and forests, while wetland bird dogs help hunters find water birds, such as ducks, geese, and waterfowl.
The roles carried out by the dogs involved in these types of hunting vary significantly, and a breed of dog that is an excellent upland hunter will not necessarily be a good choice for wetland hunting and vice versa.
