BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The German Longhaired Pointer is a dog that originated in Germany. The dog was bred for use as a pointer or a gundog. The ancestor dog had slow speed. The dog was crossed with English Pointers to enhance its speed in the 19th century. It was also bred to become friendly in temperament. The German Longhaired Pointer is also known to be called Deutsch Langhaar and German Long-Haired Pointing Dog. These dogs are intelligent, love a job to do and are eager to learn making them highly trainable. They are friendly, gentle, well-balance, hardworking and tenacious. As they are cheerful, affectionate, love children, submissive and devoted to their families, they are wonderful house pets. They can also get along well with other dogs and house pets.

COLOR
The dog's coat color is solid dark Chocolate with White on the chest, paws and down the top of the muzzle or Dark Brown Roan with large patches of Solid Brown especially on the ears, head, back and tail.

COAT
The dog's medium coat is about 3 to 5 centimeters long in the body with somewhat longer feathering. Their coat is slightly wavy but should never be curly. The coat is firm and shiny but not silky or soft. The dog has a double coat with the undercoat being a bit dense but not profuse as to make the guard hairs stand out from the body.

PERSONALITY
The GLPs are gentle, friendly, kind and smart breed. They are affectionate to their owners and will experience anxiety when left alone for too long. These dogs enjoy when they are given a job to do and do not adapt well to a sedentary life. These dogs enjoy playing with children and will get along well with other dogs making them excellent family pets. When given sufficient exercise and proper leadership, these dogs are a delight to have in the household.

CARE
This dog's grooming requirement is easy and needs very little time and energy for the owners. Brushing occasionally after a couple of weeks will keep the coat at its best condition. This will also help rid of dead hairs and with the dog's shedding. The breed is known to be generally healthy and free from any genetic diseases. They are prone to ear infections if you do not clean them often. Make sure to check it daily and after any activity done in the outdoors. Given proper nutrition and care, sufficient exercise and regular visits to the vet, these dogs can live up to 12-14 years on the average.

TRAINING
These dogs are highly intelligent, very eager to learn and hard working making them very easy to train. The dog loves canine sports especially field trials, obedience and agility. Training should be done in a gentle, consistent and firm way without being harsh or negative to make it a success.

ACTIVITY
These dogs need plenty of exercise and will make great house pets as they do not adapt well to sedentary life. They enjoy doing activities more than what their owner give them. They need to be taken for long walks emphasizing that the dog is a pack member by heeding them beside or behind the handler. These dogs are not for inactive owners who are used to the urban lifestyle. The dog needs lots of room to swim and run around. A rural are would be the beneficial living condition for this dog owned by an active hunter who will hunt regularly with the dog. Play will surely fulfill the dog?s exercise needs; however, as any other breed, their primal instinct to walk will still need to be satisfied.
