Having been bred to work for the roving hunter they are the ideal rough shooting dog, working the season through on all types of quarry. They are the most determined of hunters and game finders, quartering the ground, pointing, holding the game until told to flush and retrieving gently to hand – they are equally good on land and in water. Longhairs are much happier doing what they have been designed for, rather that acting as a pure retriever sitting at a peg on a driven shoot. Nor are they suitable for people that are away from home for long periods in the day or for those that live in cities or where they cannot be run freely.
It is a noble, quiet breed that loves people, children and the company of others. At least one to two hours’ exercise a day is required, rain or shine. It is expected for them to work all day and their energy is inexhaustible. They are very intelligent and therefore easily trained but it should be noted that it is not a hard headed breed and would be sensitive to harsh training.
