The Sporting Group

Sporting dogs have been developed to assist hunters in finding, pointing, flushing, holding, and retrieving game. Of the three types of Sporting dogs-pointers, setters, and retrievers many still perform the duties for which they were originally bred. Loyalty to their masters and trainability has helped them to become some of the most popular breeds for families.
