Description

German Wirehaired Pointers are described as intelligent, energetic, and determined hunters. They were created from combining Pointers, Standard Poodles, and Foxhounds dog breeds. This resulted in a wire-coated dog that’s capable of hunting expertly both on land and in water.

This dog relies on his coat to protect him when sneering through rough terrains. Although he’s just a medium-sized dog, he can bring home furred and feathered game. But, along with their activeness, they’re complicated dogs with special needs. Thus, they need a dog owner who can match their intelligence as well as activity level.

History

The first GWP was bred in the 1880s by breeding three different breeds, that is, Deutscher-Kurzhar, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and Pudelpointer. The aim was to create a medium-sized dog that had excellent hunting and retrieving capabilities, which would also be intelligent, loyal as well as energetic to hunt even on rough terrains. As this breed developed, he gained tactics to work both feather and fur game. He also became a devoted partner and family pet. By the 20th Century, this dog was very popular. Many hunters wanted him as he was obedient as well as active.

In 1959, this breed was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club. However, note that GWP is not a suitable dog for first-time dog owners as he requires thorough training. Owners need to provide enough mental stimulation as well as exercise, or they’ll have a destructive dog. Initially, he was designed for hunting game in the field. Therefore, he spent much time stalking, running, and tracking. His owner should thus spend significant time training him throughout the day.

Description and Appearance

GWPs are medium-sized dogs of distinctive appearance. They’re well-muscled, study, and balanced in size. Their most distinguishing characteristic is that GWPs are weather resistant. An adult German Wirehaired Pointer is approximately 24-26 inches for a male while female sizes range from 22-24 inches. Both sexes weigh around 60-70 pounds. However, males are usually heavier.

These dogs have a double, almost waterproof coat. Their outer coat is wiry while the inner coat, although thins during the winter months, has excellent insulation properties. Even though the coat color might not be as appealing, his webbed feet and incredible hunting skills can’t be ignored. This is a tough breed that makes a great companion for a dedicated pet owner. Since this dog is an average shedder, owners are advised to brush it twice per week. Brushing helps maintain clean as well as healthy coats.

Temperament and Personality

Note that German Wirehaired Pointers are perfectly wired. They are active jealous dogs who demand your full attention. As they are super field trial dogs, they’re a good company to long-distance hunters. But, those who aren’t should channel his energy somewhere else such as into dog sports e.g., rally, flyball, etc.

GWPs are protective breeds that will often act dominant around small animals. They treat strangers with suspicions and bark loudly to warn owners of any unusual activities. Note that even though GWPs are affectionate, these hunting dogs don’t like being handled roughly. When isolated, they get noisy and destructive. They, therefore, are not the best dogs for someone who has little time for them.

A German Wirehair responds well to training. Plus, he can think creatively and independently. Thus, you should stay ahead of him. Otherwise, he’ll twist whatever you are trying to train him. As he is strong-willed, owners should set some rules, be consistent, and above all, prevent him from being bored.

These dogs are great companions to children. However, take caution since older dogs encountering children for the first time need supervision. Also, older ones may not get along with small pets such as cats. However, puppies that are raised with other pets accept them as part of the family.

These bird dogs are devoted to their families, but they may choose a favorite person. Depending on his training, a German Wirehair can be close in mid-to-range hunter. His coat is weather-resistant and, to a large extent, water repellent too. Plus, it is long enough to protect him from rough terrains during hunting. He is excellent at trailing game since he has strong scenting abilities.

Care

Health- GWPs are generally healthy dogs. But, they may have several health complications. Owners should check their dogs regularly for any infection signs. Also, it would be best if you brushed their teeth using dog toothpaste. Regular checkups and care will increase his lifespan.

Nutrition-they should feed on high-quality dog food, which is age-appropriate. Owners should know which human foods are and aren’t safe for their dogs. Plus, one can also reach out to a vet on issues concerning the dog’s weight or diet.

Grooming- his coat requires minimal maintenance. Brush him with a soft comb weekly as it’ll help get rid of dirt and loose hair. Also, inspect and regularly clean his ear with soft gauze and an ear cleaning solution. You should also trim his nails as long nails will slow him down when walking/running.

Exercise- your pet will need at least an hour of vigorous exercise every day. Individuals should combine tracking, running, and field exercises. During favorable weather, take him out for swimming.

Final Thoughts

German Wirehaired Pointers are excellent dogs to have as pets. They make good companions, plus they’re perfect for hunting. But, as they require too much attention, they may not be suitable for people who don’t have enough time for their pets.
