[quote="Tanner01"] The GSP is the quickest to get cold but quickest to dry out and warm up...My GSP is the best on blind retrieves and pure style, so I used her for the entire season./quote]
I agree on GSPs being good at blind retrieves. After a heavy quail/ pheasant season my GSP had a very good drive and strong nose so his blind retrieves were very good, but I wouldn't say it was stylish. I never taught him casting, etc, he just knew by general hand signals that he was going the right direction but his drive took over so he found all the birds. A lab though would definitely be better in terms of style.
I will say though, my GSP is NOT the quick warming up type. I got a lab for that specific reason. He has no issue breaking through ice to get a duck, but his endurance in cold weather is not the same as a lab. I figure my GSP will be my early season dove and only dog for upland. My lab will be my primary waterfowl dog.
