Naturally active and alert, Sporting dogs make likeable, well-rounded companions. Members of the Group include pointers, retrievers, setters and spaniels. Some of the Sporting breeds are among the most beloved of all family dogs.
Remarkable for their instincts in water and woods, many of these breeds actively continue to participate in hunting and other field activities. Potential owners of Sporting dogs need to realize that most require regular, invigorating exercise and nearly constant companionship!
These dogs are loyal and rewarding members of the family--and the extended family!
