Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers with Grant St. Germain
Our guest interview this week is with a Canadian waterfowl hunter who grew up hunting ducks in Nova Scotia. As a kid, Grant St. Germain was introduced to the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, or Toller, through family friends who were among the early advocates for the breed.
Hunting and Field Trials in Continental Europe with Marjolein Kamman-van Eijk
Our guest interview this week stayed in the pointing dog theme, but we stepped across the English Channel into continental Europe to explore hunting opportunities and the field trialing scene on the mainland. Marjolein Kamman-van Eijk is an accomplished field trialer, dog breeder, and all-around hunting dog enthusiast. She began with longhaired Weimaraners, but as her interest in field trials grew, she started keeping and breeding English Setters along with the Weims.
Pointers and Setters on the English Moors with David Hudson
Kicking off our exploration of the methods of hunting with a dog, we start on the grouse moors of England and Scotland. We welcome our first guest to the show, David Hudson, who is an author, photographer, and pointing dog enthusiast with a rich history in the world of Pointers and Setters in the UK.
We are back with season two of the Hunting Dog Confidential podcast. In the first season, we answered the question of “what dogs are used as hunting dogs?” We looked at various breeds and types of dogs that are hunted all over the world, both in the modern day as well as throughout history. Now, we turn our attention to the “how.” How are dogs used and what are the various methods of hunting with dogs?
We wrap up our survey of hunting dogs with a look at working terriers. Terriers developed to fill a need where humans needed to get to game in a situation where we were ill-equipped to do so. Just like sight hounds were developed to be faster than us to catch running game and scenting dogs were developed with better noses than us to find otherwise-camouflaged game, terriers were developed to be able to locate and access game below ground in tunnels and dens.
Can I rate this a 6 star??? I love everything about this-sponsorship info in the beginning, no commercial breaks. Super knowledgeable host with fantastic stories about dogs!
My favorite dog/hunting podcast
Attention to detail and passionate, interesting hosts makes this podcast special.
Top Flight Podcast
Just finished the Terrier episode, my first, and was very impressed. Attention was paid to each working breed with clear and concise discussions about terrier hunting origins. I thought the piece on the Jagdterrier was particularly well done.
Much like the Jagdterrier anomaly, both soft and hard-mouthed (maybe), this podcast combines hardcore dog talk with a gentle and even relaxing touch. Couldn’t recommend more! Please keep up the good work!
