About Sporting Breeds in General:
The gun dog is the hunter's best friend. Bred to retrieve game, flush out prey, and in some cases even bring down game themselves, gun dogs are ideal hunting companions.

Multi-purpose dogs, some of the popular breeds have been drafted into service over the years. Labradors and Golden Retrievers have become excellent guide dogs for the blind, and the superb hearing ability of some breeds make them the ideal choice for assistance dogs to the hearing impaired. Many of these breeds will fit into the family pet category.
