My niece and her husband are big into dogsledding,they say that there several people in there group that use hunting dogs,they do it to help keep them in shape,They cant compete speed wise with the huskies,but if you ever watched them you can see those dogs are having a blast.And three dogs is more than enough to pull you,Just dont let go.

That's a cool pic, good idea. I read once that Bob Whele took his pointers and won a sled dog competition in New York against some top huskies and malamutes. He did this just to show how athletic bird dogs are.

That's kind of what I was thinking, that could get crazy, especially if it was a double and each dog decided to chase a different bird.

I can't remember exactly where I read that at. It was in one of my many magzainzes I get about bird dogs. If you google it, the story pops up. Apparently it was a 30 mile race and everyone laughed their butts off when he pulled out these skinny short haired dogs that were shivering like mad. But when the gun when off and he yelled "BIRDS" the dogs got this crazed look in their eyes and took off. Not only did he win, but he shattered the record, or so the story goes.

I Googled this topic and wound-up on a sled dog forum on which the pointing sled dog question was discussed.

http://www.sleddogcentral.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5592

It appears that some "mushers" really like the pointing breeds--in fact, I got the impression they're fairly common in competition. However, it looks like a lot of them prefer (yuk!:bloos: to me anyway) pointing breed/sled dog hybrids.

From my understanding, most sled dogs are MUTTS! You do get the occasional breeder that sticks within the breed but most are breeding on ability and could care less on the pedigree!

Didn't know that: makes sense because bird dogs have some obvious physical traits that many non-hunters/non-field trialers may find ideal. My guess is that they'd also do very well in agility, frisbee contests ect.
I just have a very hard time picturing a pointer/husky mix!
