List of the best dogs for hunting, as ranked by dog breed experts and hunters alike. As any hunter knows, hunting can be a lonely, solitary adventure. There can’t be much conversation because the sound would scare away birds and other wildlife, so many hunters go off on their own into the woods. Many hunters, instead of bringing a companion hunter along for the ride, take with them a loyal dog as a hunting buddy. Hunting dog breeds have more purposes than just companionship. Often these dogs have just the right features for a fun, fruitful hunt. Some dog breeds have great hearing, so they can tell when there’s something worth hunting around. Other dogs have keen eyesight which can fetch your shot prey for you.

This list contains the best dog breeds for any hunting trip,long or short. Whether you are hunting small pheasants or larger prey, a dog can be the greatest hunting buddy a man can find.
