Overview
Originating in England in 1650, the English Pointer was used to locate hare and upland birds. So named for their motionless stance they assume when they have found game, this breed continues to thrive as a popular hunting dog and companion.
Character
The English Pointer exhibits a proud and aristocratic demeanor. They possess an alert expression. English Pointer's are athletic, muscular, powerful, and are graceful and fluid in movement.
Temperament
An affectionate, loyal, and devoted breed, the English Pointer is responsive, congenial, and even-tempered. They get along with dogs and will do well with non-canine pets they have been raised with. They are good with children, although small children must be supervised. English Pointer's are reserved with strangers and will alert their family to suspicious noises and activity.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when necessary. It is important to routinely check the ears and paw pads for debris. The English Pointer breed is prone to skin conditions, thyroid problems, hip dysplasia, and dwarfism.
Coat
The coat of the English Pointer is smooth, dense, and short with a natural sheen.
Training
The English Pointer is easily distracted and willful. They are, however, intelligent. Early socialization and obedience is a must. Training sessions should be short and varied. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training should be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The English Pointer breed is not recommended for city or apartment living. They do best in a rural setting with acreage to roam and run. The English Pointer is highly energetic and requires daily vigorous exercise. They thrive on hunting, make excellent jogging companions, and excel at Pointing Field Trials.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of English Pointer puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

7 month old female Pointer is she too small? Hello All, I have a general concern regarding the height of my female English Pointer mix. She measures approx 20 - 21 inches at the withers and I was wondering if people think she may be too small? I know she's mixed breed and perhaps one parent was smaller than the other but I think she's too small and I'm very frustrated because she barely eats anything and I mean she eats nothing! The food is another story but can someone kindly let me know if she's a good height for 7 months? Thank you!!

For seven months and being a mix, she seems to be at an alright height. But you are entitled to be concerned as food has a lot to do with the growth of a dog. A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go!

Depending on the size of your dog will depend on the winter jacket you would need to buy for your dog. All jackets that you can buy in stores and online have an outline of sizes in which you can measure your dog to see which one would be the best fit. But on average, I would say a medium to large depending on the size of your dog would work.

We live in the city with a lemon english pointer and I walk him and we take him to the park to run...which he loves. It has been hot and the park has sand not grass..and as fast and quick turns he makes he rips his pads...is this normal and do they grow back? His pad was hanging so we cut it off so it would not catch on anything and rip...is this okay?

His pad's will grow back but not if they don't have the chance. There are booties you can buy for him to wear while his pads are healing and for when he goes to play in the sand. Putting an good anti-bio-tic cream on his pads will help them heal faster as well.

No, your dog is WAY too young. Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.

Just like people, dogs can get dry and/or oily skin. It may mean that she may need a bath or it could mean that you need to change her food. If she hasn't had a bath in a while, you can use Head and Shoulder's shampoo that is made for humans. It works great for dogs with dry/itchy skin and/or oily skin.

I had a similar problem with my 9 year old pointer. The vet also thought it was a food allergy so I tried eliminating different foods (from my research it seems like corn or other grain is the most common allergy). The grain free food he liked best was Natural Balance limited ingredient diet foods - his favorite was duck and potato. It turns out his allergies are environmental, and can't really be eliminated so we have to live with it. Good luck! :)

I live in a farm and they often run away from 2-8 days. They killed a lamb recently. I only had one pointer and it never ran away, I bought another pointer puppy and when he grew up they began escaping. I dont know what to do. They come back from 2-4 days for food and shelter and they leave again. PLEASE HELP

An underground electric fence might be your answer. They work great but do require training on the part of both human and canine. Stick with it and in two weeks your dogs will never run off again. Either that or keep them kenneled. Sounds like they are on the fast track to get hit by a car, shot by an angry farmer or poisoned with coyote bait...
