A chat with avid bird hunter Brian King about his choice of bird dogs. I have poodle pointers and right now I have three which is too many. I have Biscuit who is 14, Gravy who is five and Trapper who is eight months. We just got him a few months ago. Poodle pointers are fantastic around the home, they are good pets, they don’t shed, but most importantly they are very versatile and good hunting dogs. They point, they retrieve and they swim like crazy. If you get a good one they are just about the best dog you can have out there, for me, I like a close working dog. I don’t like dogs that run a mile away. I don’t like big running dogs like that but I like other people that have dogs like that but I like to see my dog the whole time when I hunt. So a poodle pointer, maybe that go back 100 years to Czechoslovakia is half standard poodle and half English pointer. They have 50% of the natural drive of both of those dogs. They have the pointing ability and the nose of the English pointer which is probably the finest bird-dog out there if you can handle them and then they have the tracking ability and the water ability of the poodle. They are fantastic dogs and there are probably only three or four breeders in the United States one of whom lives in Boise. His name is Bob Farris. Telephone number: 208-484-8090
