Default Dogs ?

What would be the best dog that doesnt shed or sheds little and would be good for grouse and duck.

getting a dog that is good for waterfowling that doesnt shed is kinda hard. A thick winter coat is the name of the game. I have noticed a difference in yellow and black labs. The yellows that I have seen have had a finer hair. The hair that was shedded seemed to get airborne easier than the black lab's hair. Just an observation not fact.

Wirehairs, Drats, Spinones, Griffons and Puddel Pointers come to mind.
I'm partial to the German Wirehaired Pointers myself but the other breeds are very good as well and shed very little. Excellent bird hunters both upland and waterfowl. Not to mention great family dogs as well.
GOOD LUCK

I think wyowires gives you good advice. I'll vouch for the pudelpointers. I've been very impressed how little mine sheds. Very independent and solid on point. Here's a picture from last April if you have any concerns regarding cold water...

A lab is the best all around dog. I hunt alot of waterfowl and upland. There is no point in buy anything else. Here is where I got my dog. http://www.downtowndustybrown.com/

Pointing Labs are great Grouse/Upland and Waterfowl dogs.................But they are Labs and DO shed.
I'd say you should go with a GWP (or DD).

Give me a pointing lab! It the best of both worlds. After you get yourself a P/L, go buy an Oreck to deal with the hair.

I think he said a dog that doesn't shed much, I had a lab once and she shed alot of hair!

Facts of Life
All Dogs Shed, Bark, Eat and Deficate. Not necesarly in that order.
and they are not to particular were they do this either.
Some dogs are cleaner than others and some are cooler than others.
Pudels are great for old women in CA. and labs are an Duck hunters best friend.
A all-around dog is half of one thing and half of another.
There will never be a versital breed that is the best at anything.
Too Bad Dogs don't come in a Duramax 4 door 4x4 Chevy
anyways first set up a nice kennel and get a pair of quality Clippers
