Short title: 
The Weimaraner is a talented, high-energy dog. "Friendly," "fearless," "alert" and "obedient" are words usually used to describe this breed, and he is all these things and more. He was bred to handle tough situations, and he doesn't back down easily. He learns quickly and bores quickly. Effusively affectionate with his family and those he knows, the Weimaraner can be aloof and territorial with strangers.

Short title: 

Pointers are sweet and gentle but very energetic. They prefer to live with quiet adults, and are somewhat suspicious of strangers. They get along well with other pets. Pointers are stubborn and easily distracted.

The Pointer is a fine family dog, with energy to spare for play and activities with young ones. He also has a love of hunting that pleases the more serious and the weekend sportsman. He has plenty of stamina, courage and loyalty, but his hard-driving nature can result in a dog who may be more than some can handle. Obedience training and socialization from puppyhood are both important for this breed.

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

Short title: 
nova scotia duck tolling retriever
Although he is the smallest of the retrievers in overall size, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (often called "Toller" by his admirers) is certainly not "shorter" of natural talent. So keen is his desire to work that owners say that he bears a sad expression on his face until he can participate in a retrieving game or a real hunt, during which he is animated and exceptionally in tune to the task at hand. Tolling is a natural ability, and while it needs to be trained so that the dog can master certain idiosyncrasies of the style, it cannot be taught.

Labrador Retriever

Short title:

Labrador Retrievers are sensible, even-tempered, affectionate, intelligent and willing to please. They are enthusiastic retrievers and swimmers and can be kept happy for hours with a tennis ball or flying disc tossed repeatedly - especially if it's tossed in the water. At the same time, Labs love to relax along with the family, and they settle right into the routine at home.

Irish Setter

Short title:

Irish Setters are playful and sometimes impulsive. They need lots of exercise and will become destructive if confined too long. They're good with children and other pets.

Irish Setters are sporting dogs. In general, sporting dogs are active and alert and require daily exercise. Because they have superior instincts in the water and woods, sporting dogs are often used for hunting. If exercised and properly trained, most sporting dogs make excellent pets.

Big, elegant and athletic, with a flowing red coat and upbeat personality, the Irish Setter turns heads wherever he appears. His devil-may-care personality, paired with a happy-go-lucky air, endear him to all who meet him. He is more than good looks and personality, though. The Irish Setter is a delightful companion and a friend to all he encounters, enthusiastic, intelligent and loving. As his hunting instincts are nurtured, he is once again proving himself in the field.
