So you’re looking to adopt an Drentsche Patrijshond, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Drent is “par excellence” for hunting a variety of game on diverse terrain. He is known for keeping in touch with the hunter; when on point, while awaiting the hunter, the dog will often look back at his hunting partner if it takes a long time to wait. His adaptability makes him suitable for all manner of game in the field as well as in the water. The Drent is also known to be a good retriever. Due to the Drent’s soft nature, forceful training methods are inappropriate. The dog is expected to bark to announce visitors to the home, and is often reserved towards strangers until welcomed. He is loyal, intelligent and a pet of exceptional value on top of being a good hunting buddy.

The Drentsche Patrijshond, Drent for short, is not your typical continental pointer. For starters, the Drent has a tail and is nearly four hundred years old. The Drent was built by farmers for farmers. As a farm dog, Drents had to do it all: hunt feather and fur, keep the farm clear of vermin, cart dairy to the market and much more. The breed has maintained versatility from the beginning and are highly intelligent and adaptable. As such, training must be kept lively and interesting. Drents are used in all types of hunting, agility, tracking, dog sledding, and skijoring.”
