Get to know the German Longhaired Pointer
All you need to know about the breed
Swimming, tracking, pointing, running … more running: this dog can do it all – and with a (metaphorical) smile on their face. The versatile, active and amenable German Longhaired Pointer breed was developed as a companion to hunters suited to any terrain. Now these athletic and intelligent dogs make a great companion for any sufficiently outdoorsy humans.
As long as they get enough exercise to burn off some of their natural energy, these charming dogs, with their glossy wavy coats in shades of chestnut brown and white, are also calm and content with their humans at home. The German Longhaired Pointer breed thrives on having a safe outdoor space to explore, putting that impressive nose to good use, and stretching their powerful legs. That space does need to be securely enclosed because their prey drives are still very much intact. For the same reason, they’re not really recommended for households containing guinea pigs, hamsters or other small pets. Once trained, German Longhaired Pointers should get on fine with other dogs and do well with children, although like any other breed they shouldn’t be left unsupervised with the latter.
