Meet the Bird Dogs
What do dog breeds like the Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, Brittany, English Cocker Spaniel, and English Setter have in common? While they are all sociable and loving family dogs, they were originally bred to help hunters retrieve game birds. These popular dog breeds are intelligent and easily trained. To stay active and content, these dogs need stimulation and playtime that helps them follow their natural instincts. Many working families choose dog daycare for bird dogs, keeping their dogs active and healthy while giving them extra playtime and socialization.
Great Family Pets
Owning a bird dog has many great benefits for you and your family. The Golden Retriever is the perfect example of a bird dog which happily blends into a home environment. They are excellent with children and have a relaxed temperament, just as happy to stay home and cuddle as to get out and explore.
Easy to Train
Bird dogs are very smart and easily trained, making it even easier for your dog to blend in with the family. Bird dogs can learn a variety of tricks and behaviors with ease. While these dogs can be taught to perform fun and time-honored tricks like fetching a toy, it is even more fun to train your dog to track scents and do focus activities.
Dogs have an incredible sense of smell, over 10,000 times stronger than a human’s. Bird dogs are especially in tune with their noses and enjoy scenting games. Scent training can be as easy as hiding treats around the house, or even playing hide and seek with your dog, who will easily sniff you out.
Focused and Ready
Focus activities can be challenging and stimulating for your dog, as well as helping your dog with his or her behavior. One game involves throwing a toy and then teaching the dog to wait patiently until you tell the dog to fetch it. Dogs always need plenty of love and positive reinforcement when learning any new behavior.
