So my wife convinced me back around Christmas to get a standard Poodle for my kids. He's a red poodle which is pretty rare from my understanding. Handsome fella and smart as a whip. Have a duck guide friend here in NC who said guys in Currituck use them as duck dogs. Anybody here have any experience with them with anything other than ducks? At first I doubted I would ever turn him into a serious dedicated hunting dog, but my vet recommended that I give him a job to keep him from being bored so this just might be the thing for him.
I am open to using him for ducks, but I really dont hunt a lot of places that would require much from a dog. I do however like the idea of him retrieving dove or quail (if I could ever find any). Just curious if anybody on here has ever had any experience with them or know of somebody who has had luck
Also, dont worry I told my wife I would NEVER cut his hair like the fancy poodles most people think about
