Sporting dogs are naturally energetic and durable. They are eager to please and take well to training, making them well-rounded and faithful hunting companions. Owning a sporting dog requires a commitment of regular and invigorating exercise. Although many sporting dogs are still used for hunting, their even and gentle temperament has found them a permanent place in the heart of the family home. The Sporting Group includes: Brittanys, Labrador Retrievers, English Setters and Weimaraners.
