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.
