|A superlative hunter and a loyal companion dog, the
German Wirehaired Pointer competes for perfection
and affection in every area. Devised by German
hunters at the turn of the last century, the German
Wirehaired Pointer possessed intelligence, strength,
stamina and boldness, key characteristics to excel in
the field as a versatile hunting partner. Few working
dogs are as eager to please as this multi-purpose
sporting dog, who is able to point, retrieve, trail and
hold wounded game—all in a day’s work. While rugged
and tireless in the field, the breed is a real "people"
dog, thriving on interaction with its owners. A gentle,
even-tempered companion, the GWP is ideal for a
family with children, blessed with patience, superior
intelligence and an outgoing, fun personality.
This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide provides an
insightful look at the GWP’s origins and history in
Europe, the characteristics and personality of the
breed and the breed standard, as well as information
on selecting a well-bred puppy, caring and feeding the
puppy, house-training and obedience training.
Additionally, a lavishly illustrated chapter on preventive
healthcare by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides up-to-
date accurate information on inoculations, parasite
control, selecting a veterinarian and other topics vital
to the ownership of a healthy pure-bred dog. This new
Kennel Club Book series is the first choice of the
country’s top breeders, trainers and veterinarians and
will delight newcomers and GWP experts alike.

|The German wirehaired pointer is very determined, active and intelligent. Eager to
learn and loyal to its family, it needs a handler who is consistent in approach. They like
to be occupied and enjoy working for their owner. They are friendly with those they
know, but are naturally aloof with strangers and should be socialized at an early age.'
This is one breed of dog that does not do well in a kennel environment. German
wirehaired pointers are happiest and most well behaved when they are part of the
family and can spend time with their people. They can be rather willful and they like to
roam. Powerful and energetic, they can become bored and hard to manage without
enough exercise. The German Wirehaired pointer is a good all-around gun dog, able
to hunt any sort of game on any sort of terrain. This dog has a good nose and can
track, point, and retrieve on both land and water. Steady, lively and vigorous. These
dogs should have the correct tempermant to live with children of all ages.
