Higgins Gundog Team Titles
Higgins Gundogs and their handlers share a unique relationship. Unlike conventionally trained dogs, a Higgins Gundog chooses to cooperate and understands that he needs the handler (shooter) in order to be successful. He consistently displays all of his natural drive, focus, intensity and steadiness while hunting and managing his birds.
The dog is only half the story. Higgins Gundog Handlers have demonstrated the ability to read and handle these unique dogs and, through thoughtful management, showcase all of their natural talent and cooperation.
The dogs and Handlers listed below have demonstrated excellence in our unique venue we call “Classic Hunting”. All have earned the coveted title of Higgins Gundogs (HGD) and Higgins Gundog Handlers (HGDH).
