Hunting dog

A hunting dog refers to any dog who assists humans in hunting.

There are several types of hunting dogs developed for the many tasks hunters require that they fulfill.

The major categories of hunting dog include hounds, terriers, curs type dogs, and gun dogs.

Among these categories further divisions can be made based upon the skill sets that the dogs possess.

Hunters with dogs report the satisfaction that the dogs seem to exhibit.

Excitement is evident as they see the hunters load weapons, take to the field, and begin the hunt.
