Buying a started dog is a great way to get a hunting dog that already knows the basics. You don't have to deal with the puppy stage, potty accidents, whining all night, chewing the couch, etc. Started dogs have been properly introduced to gun fire, live birds, pointing, retrieving and loading in the crate and kennel. Started dogs have already begun their bird dog training and can be expected to find birds with their nose, point birds and then retrieve birds to hand. Started dogs will know and obey basic commands like here, whoa, load up, no, etc.
Typically started dogs are to the point where you can take them hunting and have an enjoyable experience in the bird field. While they still require additional training to be steady to wing and shot, a full season of wild bird hunting will be most beneficial to the started dog. Started dogs have enough of the basics down to go out and find birds for you and your hunting buddies.
