This are breeds I have shown and groomed for CKC, AKC registered all-breed shows (seperated into groups):

Group 1 SPORTING 

    

[Three types of gundogs are used by the hunter in the field.

Pointers and Setters locate upland game afield for the hunter by either "pointing" the nose toward the scent, or by "setting" which is assuming a rigid stance.

Retrievers bring killed or wounded game back to the hunter.

Spaniels, long or dense-coated breeds, work close to the gun in rough cover, locating, flushing and retrieving game]

Group 2 HOUNDS

    

The hounds are known by how they track game: sight or scent. Afghans, Salukis, and others of the Greyhound family locate their game by sight and with their remarkable speed run it to ground. Others like the Foxhound, Basset or Bloodhound trail by scent, giving voice all the while so the hunter can follow. Dachshunds kill underground and Otterhounds in the water

Group 3 WORKING

Although these breeds are sometimes expected to double as hunters, their principal service has been to assist man in his daily work. They have traditionally gaurded man's home and his stock, served as drovers, all-around farm dogs and draft animals. Today they also serve as gaurd dogs, police and border patrol dogs, guide dogs for the blind and dogs of war.

Group 7 HERDING

  

The herding instinct that made the wolf a sucessful hunter was recognized by man and adapted to his advantage. Domesticated and specialized through selective breeding, they evolved into the herding dogs that made sucessful farming possible. The great agricultural lands could never have been settled without him, and to this day he works side by side with man. These dogs are agile in movement, anticipating every move, able to turn in an instant, acting on thier own or in response to a signal, "eyeing" their flock into obedience. Even those whose versatility extends to working as draft animals or gaurd dogs may be powerfully built, but never are they cumbersome.
