What is in your opinion a stylish point? Or more, what is your ideal when hunting with a dog in terms of style, range, point, ground covering, etc?Also, what fault you would be most willing to forgive ? And, how would your "ideal" from your head rank in your country's trials....
For me, I like to see a lot of desire, clean run with a nose high catching the scent. I like the dog fairly close - about hundred meters away...And when the dog catches a scent, I love to see the tail swishing from one side to another as he zeros towards the top of the scent cone. Head level and back completely straight, almost gliding towards the source of the scent. And when the dog points (depending where the bird is) all the intensity in the eyes, neck, front almost quivering with the anticipation, with the head and tail giving the straight line ( like an arrow) to the bird.
So, what is your hunting ideal? :)))))
