Temperament

This is a dog breed that is loving and alert. While they will want to please their owners, they should only be purchased by someone who can consistently train them. While they will be friendly to people they are familiar with, they will be suspicious of strangers. The German Wirehaired Pointer can somestimes be stubborn, and they enjoy moving around in wide open areas. This is a breed that makes excellent gun dogs, and they are skilled hunters as well. They can move quickly on a wide variety of terrain. They will only behave well with children that are mature.

Health Problems

Some conditions which are specific to this breed include ear problems, eye disorders, hip dysplasia, and skin ailments. The German Wirehaired Pointer has a maximum life expectancy of 14 years.

Exercise

The German Wirehaired Pointer is a breed which has large amounts of endurance, and it may give owners the impression that it is tireless. Because of this, it needs large amounts of exercise. If it does not get the exercise it needs, it will become bored and can be problematic for owners. These dogs should only be purchased by owners who are physically active themselves. This breed does not function well in apartments, and will need a sizeable yard.

Special Grooming Needs

Owners will want to make sure they brush the coats of these dogs two times per week. Only a brush with strong bristles should be used. The coat may also need to be stripped, and owners may need to pluck the coat by hand. While the coat should be firm, it should not be rough. The German Wirehaired Pointer should only be bathed when it is necessary.
