Higgins Gundog Titles

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 dogs listed below have demonstrated excellence in our unique venue we call “Classic Hunting”. All have earned the coveted title of Higgins Gundogs (HGD).
