This volume of Hunting Dog Confidential features a diverse collection of stories about a wide range of hunting dogs around the world. Follow along in breathless pursuit of sighthounds running across the American desert, watch the fog lift over the northwest coast of Scotland while Hungarian Wirehaired Vizslas assist with grouse counts, and learn about how Labrador Retrievers are using used to locate and remove invasive Burmese Pythons in the Florida Everglades.
Honoring the history of our dogs, we’ve included historical texts describing early exploits of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever as well as a fascinating text about the use of working terriers on a hunting estate. We also explore the stories of some dog breeds that didn’t survive until the modern day and what factors cause breeds to face extinction.
No matter your breed preference or hunting style, you’ll connect with these stories and learn something in the process. From cover to cover, this magazine is a celebration of our hunting dogs.
We say that these are their stories, but in reality, we know them to be our stories, too.
Hunting Dog Confidential is published under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Craig Koshyk and Managing Editor Jennifer Wapenski, co-hosts of the Hunting Dog Confidential Podcast. Together with their wide network of dog-obsessed writers and photographers, they aim to deliver a unique user experience in storytelling through words and images.
