How to Properly Care for Your German Shorthaired Pointer

We recommend high-quality dry food with more protein and fat. Make sure the food is for the right age group of your dog. Feed your dog twice a day depending on its activity level. Always provide your dog with fresh water. Refill the dish once a day.

You must set up a crate with a padded blanket. Alternatively, we recommend a dog bed inside the crate. Clean the dog’s fur and teeth. Don’t forget to trim the nails and visit the vet regularly.

The characteristics of a German Pointer are as follows:
Clean cut head
Muscular nape
Sloping and muscular shoulders
Short and thick hair
Strong and muscular thighs

History

The German shorthaired pointer has an interesting history. What Americans refer to the German pointer, in Europe, it’s referred to as Deutsch Kurzhaar. The kurzhaar is a German word meaning short hair.

As with most dog breeds, the origin of the German pointer is not clear. Some historians believe that the breed descended from the German Bird Dog. Others believe that it descends from the Arkwright Pointer.

What we have confirmed from our research is that the modern German pointer descended from the Old Spanish Pointer and Hannover Hound.

Breeding of the German Shorthaired Pointer

The ancestry of the German pointer starts in the 13th century. Back then, Europeans used various hunting and pointing dogs to locate and track game. They did use them to retrieve game too.

The German pointer is a cross between the Old Spanish Pointer and the Hannover Hound. By 1800, they refined with the introduction of the English pointer. As such, the German pointer developed the utility and elegance it possesses.

Today, it has become a proficient hunting dog and performs well as an all-round dog. Both in the field and the water. Apart from long life, they have a wonderful temperament.

The cross-breeding of the Hannover Hound and Old Spanish Pointer was due to the changing hunting scene in Europe. In the early 19th century, the European hunter could not afford a large kennel of dogs.

Since it was the dawn of the industrial age, the middle-class hunter preferred the sporting gun. To improve his hunting game, the new hunter needed a single dog. The dog should be able to track, point and retrieve game.

In fact, its supposed to track and retrieve all kind of game – bird, boar, and hare among others. Also, the new dog should serve as a companion at home. From this long list, the German dog breeders set out to create the perfect all-purpose hunting dog.

The breeding gave birth to the German Shorthaired Pointer.

Apart from the German Shorthaired Pointer, other breeds include:
Weimaraner
German Wirehaired Pointer
German Longhaired Pointer

France and Hungary bred pointers for the same purpose.

The Old Spanish Pointer

As the ancient ancestor of the modern German Shorthaired Pointer, the Old Spanish Pointer is a liver and white dog. Its offspring were crossed with the St. Hubert Hound. This breed had a cold trailing ability.

After breeding the offspring, the results were completely satisfactory. This motivated the breeders to continue to improve style, stance, and scent.

To achieve this, breeders brought pointers from England. By 1872, they were able to produce the perfect all-purpose dog which they could register with the German Kennel Club studbook.

Introduction of the German Shorthaired Pointer in America

Dr. Charles R. Thorton, an avid hunter from Montana introduced the German Shorthaired pointer in America. Following his father teachings, “a dog is worth keeping for what it can do and not how it looks,” he imported the breed.

This is after reading an article in a magazine describing a unique breed of German hunting dog. The article was in a 1925 magazine. After reading the article, he became excited. In the article, the writer described the breed as follows “a dog that did it all: pointing, flushing, tracking and retrieving.”

Several months after reading the article, the first German Pointer arrived in Missoula, Montana. In 1925, the dog gave birth to seven puppies. This was the first litter of German Pointers to be born in America.

Word spread around among American hunters and sportsmen about an all-purpose dog. As such, the breed gained a strong foothold in America.

In 1930, the first German Shorthaired Pointed to get registered by the American Kennel Club was the Greif vd Fliegerhalde. In 1938, the founding of the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America occurred. They helped in the adoption of a breed standard in 1946.
