Duck Hunting Dog Training Tip:
If you’re looking for a dog to train for your duck hunting sporting adventures, we highly recommend a retriever. Double coat for warmth and water repellence. Their feet are slightly webbed and a good muscle body. Their tail is kind of like an otter for balance, giving them the opportunity to move around the water easily. They’re also very smart dogs and mature faster than other breeds. Our retriever learned whistles and hand signals quickly.
Other dog breeds to consider for duck hunting: Pointer. This is our second choice duck hunting dog. Train them when they are young puppies, and you have a friend for life. With a thin coat, they love to be in the water. They also can identify fowl easily on the ground and in water.
