I used to hunt all English setters back when we had quail. Now I am 100% a Boykin Spaniel guy. Best all around dog I have ever owned with brains and drive but a great family dog too. Seeing your beautiful AWS shows how similar these dogs are in looks and multi purpose use.

Now, before anyone goes off on me half cocked let me explain. Lucy is a mixed breed, of what God only knows but she came to me at 7 weeks and had a nose like no other pup I've ever seen and I've had Brittany's and Labs in the past but I knew she was "different". She would track insects like they were elephants and left a scent trail 50 feet wide. I began working her as a past time just for fun, hell she's not a bird dog, she's just a dog. Time passes and she is showing more and more potential every week so I break out a dummy and some liquid scent and we go to town.
The first year I had her I never took her hunting, just in the yard and edge of the woods around the house. In Oct of every year I go to WI to hunt Grouse and brought home a bunch of wings I had saved to see her reaction. UNREAL, she went ape sht bonkers when she smelled the first one and would not get out of sight of the freezer where I kept the wings. Numerous sessions with the wings had her hooked so I took her to a plant and take quail farm here in NC. She was on them instantly, not pointing mind you but when she got within 10 feet she would begin "a stalking move which told me she had a bird on the nose. Bird gets up, I shoot, she retrieves and life is good.
The second year I take her to WI and she is like a robot on Grouse and Woodcock. She's small enough (15" high, 35 pounds) that she can get into the thick stuff and put birds in the air. We had the hunt of a lifetime for 4 days. She slept the entire way back to NC and has only gotten better over the years.

The only way I can tell them apart is the tail and sometimes the size. My male was a big boy Both breeds are excellent hunters.

When in the field he would be hard headed and just keep hunting. If you walk him with just a lead he pulls like a train.

First English Cocker. My buddies and I all had Labs for years but just about everyone has switched over to these little dynamos. We use them for dove, snipe and quail.
