I have not had a bird dog in a lot of years now. However in my younger days my buddy and I hunted with Brittany's. A lot of dog in a smaller package. We hunted grouse and pheasants with them. I lived in town so a smaller dog worked better for me. They are a dog with a big heart. The old boy could always hunt longer then I could. Here is a picture of me while we were out pheasant hunting. I will always have good memories of being out in the field with him.
