Gallery of sporting dogs

If I didn’t get a dog from the herding group, I think I’d be next most likely to pick a dog from the sporting group. They’re also high energy, but they tend to be friendlier overall and perhaps have more potential to be easygoing. Sporting dogs don’t stress too much–unless there is a threat of the game of fetch ending.

  1. That’s the first toller I’ve seen with a black nose! (the last picture)

    When I mentioned the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever to my fiance, he told me to stop making up dog breeds. Or was that when I talked about the Catahoula Leopard Hound?

    Happily, I think I’ve discovered that the Working Group, more specifically the Doberman, is the dog for me. I do admire the occasional other breed, I confess: Salukis, Irish Setters, Corgis….Dobermans….
