History

The German Wirehaired Pointer ( or GWP in short ) is a cross of  German Pointer, Pudelpointer, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, Stichelhaar, and Deutscher-Kurzhaar.  It originated  in Germany in 1870 - when the breeders  felt the need of an agile and sturdy hunting dog who could run and chase on rough terrains; retrieve waterfowls; play “feather and fur” game skillfully; has wire-like medium coat; and be the perfect fit for a gundog and would search, locate, and point upland game.

Varieties

The GWPs have two distinct types, namely, Pointador ( GWP crossed with Labrador ) and Gointer ( Golden Retriever mixed with GWP ).

Temperament & Personality

The GWPs are terrific sniffers and roamers, blessed with high doses of intelligence,  and always willing to come with their masters for hunting in all types of terrains – and all these attributes make them a perfect fit for multiple roles ( E.g., watchdogs, gun dogs, and retrievers for both land and water ).  They do not like strangers and can even overpower their owners, family members, children and other animals and pets – if they are not managed well. They do not mind learning new things and are not lazy. However, they get bored pretty fast and could even become angry in the company of other dogs – especially in front of the male ones.

Exercise

Irrespective of where they leave, in a kennel or may be indoors or outside, physically exhaustive activities are a must for GWPs – And also let them play and run inside your house. It is fundamentally vital to preserve their hunting instincts by engaging in such activities; else they could become bored and restless, and even stubborn. Also - take them with you when you are going for a walk, cycling, or swimming.

Grooming

The GWPS shed only during Fall and Spring season. Comb your dog with a firm bristled brush, and bathe it and trim the hairs occasionally, whenever the need arises. Cut its nails and keep them small, check its eyes and ears for infections, and examine its feet after exercise.


Health Problems

The GWPs are considered a healthy breed; however - they occasionally suffer from skin cancers, hereditary eye problems and hip dysplasia, Von Willebrand’s, cataracts, entropion, ear infections, and even separation anxiety when isolated for long or regularly. Do occasional tests like X-rays, DNA tests for Von Willebrand’s,  eye-ear-hip examinations.

Training

The GWPs are a tough nut to crack, and a professional trainer is always recommended for training them. It is quite difficult to educate them in homes, how to socialize and how to keep a harmonious relationship with kids, other dogs, and pets, and also with the same sex. Always Set clear rules and walk in front of your dog during the training, or else, it could become dominating enough.

Feeding

The GWPs consume two-and-a-half to three cups of best quality dry dog food daily and in two installments. You can also give home cooked nutritious foods, balanced with protein ( meats ), fiber, vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, and minerals.
