Ok after you are done using a dog to hunt test and field trial and you are using it for a real hunting scenario. Will you teach the dog to hold on point tell you give it a command to flush and let them flush the bird. As a kid i hunted over a dog that did this. Seemed nice getting set up for the shot and then letting the dog flush it. Of course i hunted a lot a lot back then.


Ok hunting even

I dont let my young dogs break or flush my birds. But when they are older and know the program and are honest on point I let them flush the bird. It is rather nice when the bird is in real heavy cover. Mainly on Grouse and Woodcock.

ONLY on command though.

No.
A pointing dog should NEVER flush a bird.
Actually this is a European way of hunting with a Pointing dog. Not uncommon at all on the other side of the pond. If you plan to go that route, do some reading on how they accomplish this.
