I love this... Good dogs... I kept watching the segment from about 1:15 - 1:25 over and over.

This is why I love hunting with my Vizsla. Being a pointing dog you have the added excitement of the dog actually finding and holding (making the bird sit tight) until flushed. There is a primal connection to the land and nature that few, beyond people who venture their dogs into the field, get to enjoy. Even if you are not a hunter, this "hunting" relationship is what has defined man's relationship to dogs for centuries.

I'm pumped up because my dog and I had just returned from our morning's foray into the woods and we heard the grouse drumming his song. Priceless.

Nice post, OP. I enjoyed that. Now I just have 7 months to wait for hunting season.

You get it. I hope everyone has the chance to feel that at some point.

On the surface it appears that these dogs are performing a fairly simple set of tasks (or at least that was my initial reaction). Then I started thinking that here are four wound up field labs, sitting calmly in their "place", with shooting all around them and birds falling out of the sky in every direction. No one breaks, no one fights, no one even barks. Those dogs know their jobs cold and love what they are doing. I love it, that's really impressive. The musical score is stirring as well and a perfect match for the video.

Thanks for the post. I love this one too from the same guy.....a pup on his first time out with the hunting pack of labs.
Not much hunting but anyone whose had a lab pup can relate.

NICE looking dogs, too.

Good labs can make great search and rescue dogs as well. [though I am partial to the pointy-eared dogs ]

I was thinking the same thing. They have the same split between field and show labs across the pond that we have here (and while it is silly to make any assumption based on this video alone) those field labs are quite handsome, not snipey at all and could probably get a lot farther at a conformation party than most American field lab lines.

They were particularly showing off those beautiful heads in the "SYNCHRONIZED LABS" segment, wouldn't you agree?
