Good picture. Sorry for my ignorance and sorry if this has been already gone over 1,000,000 times, but is Gunner a Wirehair, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon or Drahthaar?

These breeds really peke my interest. I would like to learn more about the differences in these breeds.

Thanks in advance...

Jarbo, Assa, and Omega. Same question.

Is there a better "all around model" between the 3?

I know... stupid question.

I've had/have labs, and will have another for sure... but reading these threads, and seeing that you can indeed waterfowl hunt with these breeds (my ignorance brought to light) has me wondering where I want to go from here.

Thanks fellas

WPG, DD, GWP, PP. They will all do what you are looking for. If you are not partial to a certain breed, I would say forget what breed you were looking at and pick the best pup. Meet the breeders, see the parents, find a breeder who uses and breeds his dogs for the same things you are looking for.

Where are you located?

Obvious choice - Drahthaars are the best! HAHAHA

In all seriousness though, I have no experience with the other two. I did extensive amounts of research on all of them, and what really sold me on the DD was the testing requirement. Seemed to me like a higher probability for a quality dog. I would imagine that all of them are pretty equal in terms of what they "can" do. Now what they are trained to do is probably pretty different. If you do your homework and find a quality breeder, check references, and put time into learning this style of training - chances are you'll have a hell of a dog that will teach your friends that you can truly have a dog that does it all (or most!).

I have read things about DD's hunting more with their nose down, and WP'S more using air scent. I don't know if I necessarily believe this as fact of the breed - but more of a fact involving training. The world of DD is very cryptic and hard to wade through the BS. Add on top of that some of the owners who want to say that DD's are the best at everything and are the only choice for A,B,C,D,...Z tasks.

If you have any other specific questions, feel free to PM me. I spent the last year making the same choice.

You beat me to it. +1 Jarbo

If anyone shows off how bad A these dogs are, it's you and Taz. Great ambassadors for the movement!

I'm in MN.

Thanks fellas. Looks like I have some homework to do, as to make the right decision. I know I should NOT make a decision on looks... but they are so cool looking, and from what I have seen on this site, and from you guys specifically, these breeds make great waterfowl dogs, and I don't need to mention their upland prowess. A new breed may enter into my "labs only" closed minded life.

Yup... Homework is needed...

I will be taking you up on this when the time is right. My oldest lab is turning 14 in January. This is his first "retired" year, and he HATES MY GUTS right now. I have another mix breed (3/4 lab 1/4 GSP) but his marking ability is non-existent. If he can see em, he will get them. Casting/handling...? :lol3: Don't think so.

This is all my fault, as I had a rock star for 13 years, and figured I would use the younger for upland.(He has a GREAT nose).

So I failed him... I got lazy and failed him.

All that to say, I will be looking for a new hunting partner sooner rather than later. I just want to open the "labs only" mindset I mentioned earlier, and see what I've been missing...

Thanks again guys.

Find a local NAVHDA chapter, go and check out the dogs on a training or test day. Everybody I've met through NAVHDA has been very nice and helpful. My previous dogs were a lab and a britt, wanting to have only one dog, the Griff or any of the wirehair breeds was a perfect fit for me.

I know... I'm screwed... This whole thing started when I showed my wife the picture Omega posted of his pup.

Omega.jpg
Omega.jpg (65.75 KiB) Viewed 1164 times


She fell in love. I then showed her pics of Jarbo's and Assa's pups respectively, and it was over. She wants one. I wasn't too sure, so I did a quick google search, and proceeded to gut the Huhs'... :huh:

A lot of info out there, so I came to the guys I blame for starting this... :lol3:

Again, you guys have started me out by pointing me in the right direction...(sorry... pun intended).

Now, for some edumacation...

(why does the Beatles song "Long and winding road" keep playing in my head...) :grooving:

Beards are in!

I gave Assateague a book while he was studying to get his pup. He would probably send it to you.
