Temperament

The German Shorthaired Pointer is very energetic, smart and willing to please. They are cheerful and friendly, and play well with children. Loyal and protective, he loves all family members equally, especially if they are carrying the leash, car key, gun or Frisbee. They are very people-oriented, and not happy if isolated from the family. Males tend to be more outgoing and are more aggressive hunters than females. Females tend to be less dominant. Energy levels vary somewhat, as litters bred for high performance field competition may require more activity than the average Shorthair. If raised with other dogs and cats from puppy hood, the German Shorthaired Pointer does quite well; however, he is a hunting dog by nature. This breed likes to bark and they are reserved with strangers.

Health Problems

German Short Haired Pointers are usually a healthy breed but some are prone to epilepsy, hermaphrodism and lymph edema. Some minor concerns associated with the breed are CHD, entropion, gastric torsion, VWD, pannus, OCD.

Exercise

German Short Haired Pointers require a great deal of exercise. Plenty of exercise is vital to keeping your German Shorthaired Pointer healthy and happy. They are more than a match for even the most active family and they should not be taken on as family pets unless they can be guaranteed plenty of vigorous exercise. If under-exercised, this breed can become restless and destructive. They must never be kept in an apartment.

Special Grooming Needs

German Short Haired Pointers require little grooming. Occasional brushing and bathing will ensure their coats remain shiny and smooth.
