What dog breeds are in the sporting group?

The Sporting Group

In the field, this dog breed works in concert with their human counterpart to increase the effectiveness of the hunt. These dogs are at home in the bush or in the water.

* Spaniels will move back and forth, flushing game to be taken down with the hunter's rifle.
* Retrievers will do just that - retrieve game (usually fowl) that has been downed by the hunter.
* Pointers and Setters will set off in front of the hunter. Then when they come upon their prey, they will freeze, showing the way towards the prey.

In a domestic environment, these dogs require lots of physical exercise and are usually happiest playing a game of fetch.
