Waterfowl Dogs

One of the family breeds which are easy to train as waterfowl hunting dogs are the retrievers. Even if we are talking about a Golden Retriever, a Labrador retriever, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, or especially a Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever. The last one is smaller than his other cousins, but has the exact same capabilities as they do. He really loves to be praised and might look depressed when he is not working.

Pyrenese Breeds

These breeds are ideal for families with an active lifestyle and a lot of space around the house. The main trait of these dogs is its enormous love for work. An excellent companion, they feel part of the family and loves to take part in even the smallest activities.

Lost and Found Dogs

Each year around the USA, hundreds, if not thousands of dogs, get separated from their owners and are lost in the wild or in crowded cities. This often results in heartache and sadness for the owners. It is also bad for the dog, as most pets that live a long time in the companionship of a human will have a hard time adapting to the outside world.
