Plans for hunting with your Cesky Fousek
Only hunters may receive one of our pups. The Fousek is a versatile gun dog, and with club members from Maine to Washington state, our dogs may be used to hunt ruffed and woodcock in the north woods, pheasants and sharptails on the plains, and chukars in western canyons. Fouseks love water, so waterfowl hunting is popular all over the country. A few pursue ptarmigan in Alaska, turkey in Virginia as well as furred game. Fouseks are also employed to blood track big game, and shed antler hunting is a fun early spring activity for some. In this section, you can tell us a little about what kinds of hunting and how much you hope to do with a Fousek.
The key to developing a pup's potential is exposure to game and plenty of it. Please describe the kinds and amount of hunting exposure that is reasonable for you to give a Fousek pup over its first two years.
Prospective Owner Background
Please answer the next few questions about your interest in and experience with the breed.
The club is committed to maintaining high breed quality for the Cesky Fousek as we work to expand the breed in North America. Therefore we are only placing pups with people who are willing to share in our club program by: 1) Raising the pup in a quality environment with exposure to game and hunting. 2) Completing a Natural Ability and Intermediate Hunting Dog Test. 3) Completing a PennHip Evaluation.
The first step is to become a member of CFNA. You can do this on-line by going to the Membership page on this website.
Please list other dogs (both pets and hunting) that you have. Indicate breed, sex, age. Will pup train and/or hunt with any of your other dogs?
Owners must hunt with their dog. They must complete a NAT and an IHDT, and may be asked to breed their dog at least one time if approved by the Breeding Committee.
