Dog type according to FCI
These hunting dogs should track down the hair or feather-game, however not hunt themselves. They show the hunter by pointing where the game is and remain in the typical position until the hunter is close enough to the shot and the command is given to scare the game away. Finding, stalking and storming are their tasks, so living in the city is not suitable. These intelligent, sporty dogs need hunting activities or species-appropriate alternative employment in order to be physically and mentally busy. Most of them are closely bound to their humans, so ask yourself if you can meet these demands.
