One of the things people most want to know about our dogs is how far they range and how fast they are in the field. How a dog runs is difficult to describe, as words like “slow”, “fast”, “close”, or “wide” don’t always mean the same thing to each person. So, here are two video examples that demonstrate range and speed in hunting situations. To see the dogs they need to be viewed full screen.
Paint is currently our slowest and closest working dog. Like all our dogs she will go further if she smells birds.
Pepper is a step up in range. Her range and speed are middle of the road, and typical of what we expect to produce.
Our widest dogs are another similar step up in range, but they aren’t necessarily faster. Some of our slower working dogs cover more ground than some of our faster dogs- speed and range are not tied together.
