particularities of hunting dogs:
the smell is very important for a hunting dog and it is very developed because of it must be able to smell game, the olfactory zone (the olfactory zone allows the sense of smell to function,) of their brain is four times larger than in the man, even if the man's brain is much bigger.

hound group, however, generalizations about hounds are hard to come by, since the Group encompasses quite a diverse lot.

there are pharaoh hounds, norwegian Elkhounds, afghans and beagles, among others. Some
hounds share the distinct ability
to produce a unique sound
known as baying.

the length of the nose in dogs is very important because hunting dogs should have a nose length that is neither too long nor too short. the breeds with very long noses like the Greyhound and very short noses like the bulldog are not made for hunting at all because they have less sense of smell, but these dogs still have an immense sense of smell compared to ours (about ten thousand (10,000) times higher than us). 

a hunting dog must also have hunting skills such as resistance because it must adapt or withstand all climatic conditions (the cold, heat, rain), endurance (i.e. athletic), having a thick coat allowing him to enter the bushes and undergrowth without getting hurt evil and especially courage because he must not be afraid of the game and the sound of the rifle. in this picture we see a running dog facing three large wild boars it is therefore understandable why a hunting dog must be brave.

there are several types of hunting dogs the most well known are hounds like the beagle and pointing dogs like my Lewis dog.

the running dogs s
a hound is a hunting dog whose purpose is to find the way (the track is the place where the game passed) thanks to a very fine sense of smell and to pursue it while barking to indicate to the hunter that he is on a track, to that he is not obliged to see the game he is chasing after him simply by the smell even if the game is half an hour early. this type of dog hunts furred game (rabbit, hare, fox, deer, wild boar).

- POINTING DOGS
Pointing dogs such as Lewis are the best way to hunt game. feather, i. e. quail, partridge, pheasant, woodcock, and duck. the pointing dog also uses its highly developed sense of smell but its way of hunting is very different from that of the hound. He runs in silence and does bark not. They say he's searching. as soon as he smells a game, he looks for it and gets stuck like a statue in his direction to show the hunter where he is, they say it's at a standstill. as soon as his master gives the order, the dog advances slowly, the bird flies away and the hunter can shoot.
