The Best Bird Hunting Dog Breeds

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.

In this video, we have listed 10 of the best and most well-known bird hunting dogs in the world.

    I’ll put my Standard Poodle against any breed for the ability to do both chores really well. There may be some better water dogs and there may be some better bird dogs but when you need a dog to do both the Standard Poodle is overlooked.
