    LEE456 everyone with a gun dog will give you different opinions which is what you asked  ? My advice for you if you have a breed which you have your heart set on then go for that breed means then you will never second guess yourself mate

    Cheers looks like ive started ww3 on here relised before i posted id be opening a can of worms just trying to avoid the obvious or not so obvious pitfalls springer or sprocker (spaniel) for me would be the logical choice

    I wouldn't have a Labrador. Have you seen how many of their owners end up blind ?

    Get a Flatcoat and as long as you stay on the medication it will work out just fine    

    I am on my third and the medication really does work, also had two labs and they are much easier to train. A new pup in the spring and cannot decide which of the two to go for.

    I am on my 5th Cocker and my latest is the most mental yet.  Great little dogs though if you just want a job doing, they have all hunted and retrieved superbly  if a little chaotic at times lol.  Not a peg dog.

    • There's a big trend atm to have cockers as peg dogs (and a few springers as well) ... try telling people they go mental... I've always found if you say something bad about someones wife, there's a better chance of them agreeing than if you say something bad about their dog 😂
