Frequently Asked Questions

How much is a pointer puppy?

A German Shorthaired Pointer costs between $600 and $1,500, depending on the breeder you choose. A more experienced breeder will know how to breed a dog with fewer health problems, but they will also charge more and may have a long waiting list.

Are Pointers good pets?

A pointer from a working line may be too active and high strung to make a good family pet. Some are strong willed and stubborn. Many pointers, however, are raised for show, and dogs from these lines can make great family pets that are patient with children, good with other animals and calm within the home.

Are Pointers easy to train?

Due to their high intelligence and history of being trained for hunting, Pointers are fairly easy to train, and can be quick learners.

Which pointer breed is best?

Possibly the only breed to beat the wirehaired griffon as the most versatile pointer breed is the Weimaraner. These dogs were initially used to hunt boar, bear, and deer, among other, larger game. They have an instinct for chasing down prey and must be trained early on if they’re to be used for hunting

Do pointers bark a lot?

Pointers do not do a lot of barking. They have a relatively low tendency to bark when they are trained and well exercised. However, they will bark if they are bored for too long or to alert owners of danger/strangers. A dog’s proclivity to bark can be a deciding factor in whether you adopt it or not.

Can Pointers be left alone?

The German Shorthaired Pointer scores low marks for tolerating alone time: keep her inside with you, and try not to leave her alone routinely for long periods. If your lifestyle will not allow for this, the GSP is probably not the dog for you.

Do Pointers like water?

Pointers are capable of enjoying themselves at the beach with their human families. However, these dogs are typically introduced to the water from a young age. Like most dogs, as long as they are trained, or shown how water can be fun, they won’t have a problem swimming or splashing around.

At what age are Pointers fully grown?

Males can grow to a height of 28 inches while females can reach 26 inches. An 8-week-old English Pointer weighs around 7 pounds. They are considered fully grown at 18 months to 2 years old.

Do Pointers cuddle?

If you’re into agility or any dog sport, they’ll be there to please and show off. And as long as their daily activity levels are met, they are also happy to chill on the couch with you for hours. They are big cuddle machines that won’t leave your side unless they see an opportunity to chase.

Are Pointers a good first dog?

It isn’t recommended to get a GSP for a first dog largely due to them needing a complex training routine combined with extensive, interesting exercise. CARE/ SUITABILITY I will be making you aware of the most common health concerns and sharing a little bit of information about each one.

Do pointing dogs flush?

Flushers are designed to locate birds and put them in the air, hard and fast, while pointing dogs are designed to locate the bird and hold point while the hunters gain position and flush. Both types of dogs are bred to excel at sniffing out birds, but their hunting styles can be quite different.
