Overview
The German Shorthaired Pointer is an all purpose gun dog capable of excellent abilities in both field and water. They are well balanced with an elegant head and are lean in body. This breed originated in 19th century Germany by hunters who required a dog that was serviceable for men hunting on foot.
Character
The German Shorthaired Pointer is an active breed that is responsive, affectionate, and gentle. They are friendly and willing to please. They do not have a flighty or nervous disposition, but may become easily distracted.
Temperament
This breed is high energy, willing to please their master, and very smart. They are happy and friendly and get along well with children. They will also get along well with other dogs and cats provided that they are introduced to them and raised with them from puppy-hood. This breed does enjoy barking. They are loyal and protective, and prefer to be indoors with their family.
Care
The German Shorthaired Pointer is extremely easy to groom. They must be brushed regularly with a stiff bristle brush. It is important to check this breed's feet after exercising and working. They must be dried thoroughly after strenuous activity to keep them from becoming chilled. This breed is an average shedder. They are generally healthy, but can be prone to such problems as ear infections, hip dysplasia, and skin cancer.
Coat
The German Shorthaired Pointer's coat is of a harsh texture. It is short, flat and thick and is of a dense nature, which makes it water resistant. The coat may be solid liver in color or a combination of liver and white spotted and liver roan.
Training
The German Shorthaired Pointer is easily trained, but can be stubborn. They require patient, firm, and consistent guidance. They excel in obedience, agility, tracking, hunting, and flyball. This breed has a natural instinct to guard and must have obedience training.
Activity
The German Shorthaired Pointer are tireless and full of energy. Vigorous exercise is extremely important. If they are not given an appropriate amount of exercise and stimulation they become restless and destructive. They are a good family pet for the active family. This breed needs a lot of space and room to run. They must have a fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of German Shorthaired 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.

No, they do not. The German Shorthaired Pointer does not have spots on its body. What you most likely saw was a Dalmatian cross or some other type of cross -- possible for it to be a German Shorthaired pointer/English Setter cross.

Exercise, exercise and more exercise. Throwing in a little bit of mental stimulation as well. The German Shorthaired Pointer needs an average of 2 hours of hard running exercise a day. An hour in the morning and an hour at night. Raw meaty bones and antlers are the best for your dog to chew on through-out the day so she doesn't get bored and chew on your things. As well as enrolling her with Positive Reinforcement Training classes to help teach her boundaries through-out the house inside and out.

Your GSP puppy is 5 months old. She needs structure, exercise and obedience. Do not allow her to be rambunctious inside the house, tether her to you, crate her, or pen her into a specific area. Give her appropriate things to chew on and make sure other things such as shoes, blankets and children's toys are out of her reach. Things to give her to chew on include raw/meaty bones, antlers, bully-sticks and rope toys.

As for your GSP digging, make sure her nails are trimmed short, and watch her when she is outside. Do not allow her to be alone outside. If she has already dug a hole, bury her poop in the hole. When she tries to re-dig the hole, she will find poop and not want to dig anymore. She is also old enough to go on at least a 45 minute leashed walk, or 30 minutes off leash (in a fenced area) romp. Puppy obedience class is also a good thing to attend now, as this will give you the tools to control and communicate with your dog as she grows. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer for available classes.

Every morning you can, take your Pointer outside to the dog park and let her run around for a while. Also take her for long walks in the evening. To calm nerve muscles, massage and brush your dog at night. -vet2b

how much should my female german short haired pointer weigh at 9 weeks?

1 Comment

Anonymous

There is no average weight for a German Short Haired Pointer at that age. But when you got your pup, you should have gotten vet paper's as well. The vet paper's would tell you her weight the last time she was at the vet, as long as it is within 7 pounds of that weight (the pup should have gone in anytime between 7 - 8 weeks old), then your pup is fine. But consulting your vet is the best bet to make sure your pup is well nourished and at a healthy weight.

The height and weight of a puppy all depends on the linage of the pup. Contact your breeder and look at the parents. If the parents are slightly below average, average or above average on either height, weight or both; then you'll have a good idea at where your puppy should be. Food is also a consideration. A high quality, grain-free puppy food is the best thing you can give your puppy and will help him grow healthy, with lean muscle. But on average, he is at a good size. Although, contacting your breeder first, and vet second will conclude as to where your puppy should be with size at his age. If you are also able to get in contact with the people that have his litter mates, you could compare sizes there as well.

The German Short haired Pointer reaches maturity at 1 year old. So at 6 months, the dog should be of relative size, maybe an inch or so less then the average. The average height of the adult female G.S.H.P is 58–63 cm.

Is that too old to bond with a new (kids 3 and 10) family? I work from home and I'm willing to spend lots of time with her and to take her out for lots of exercise. I gather she is crated most of the day. Would it be too late to house train her, if she is accustomed to do her business indoors? Thanks for any ideas and tips!

We adopted a 7 yr old German Shorthaired Pointer who bonded with us immediately and fit quite well with the other three shorthairs and cats we had. We also babysat a 6 yr old female for several weeks at a time while her family was out of the country and she fit right in too. Later when our children came along they were all wonderful with the kids. Shorthairs have been called "velcro" since they tend to stick close to their owners and that has absolutely been our experience whether adopting them as pups or older dogs. They are incredibly smart but are also very strong willed and absolutely must have lots of room to run. What I love about them is they never realize they're old and will push themselves to remain active and playful till the end. As far as house training, from our experience they can learn anything quickly with firm and consistent training. At 9 she may have urine leakage (ours did as do many fixed older dogs) which is easily cleared up with a daily pill from the vet.

Never too old to bond and love. Giving your German Shorthaired Pointer ample attention and accepting her into your family she will thrive. They are smart and love to learn but don't get in an argument or use a heavy hand ... Invest in a crate for when you are going to leave the home, and she cannot come, it can also prevent accidents. But know that at 9 she isn't young - and a little more patience may be required. And until you really know any dog - regardless of breed, do not leave her with your 3 year old, that just common sense.

The underbelly hair is sparse. Extreme cold, throw a jacket on them and limit exposure because of their ears being big, thin and exposed.

Grain is horrible for dogs, and living on a horse farm, mine have gotten into it, and usually gives them an upset stomach. Stay AWAY from grain or foods with grain, premium is the best. Instead there are better ways to go about this, try peanut butter on a peice of bread ever after afternoon. Or putting scrambled eggs in your dogs food a courple times a week. In the end it may just be her/his build.

I had a female GSP that would howl when I asked her too. They make a range of noises and each dog has a different 'voice' just we do. Having said that many people use a bark collar to stop unwanted barking. It is voice activated and gives a low voltage electric shock providing negative feedback to the unwanted behavior. It does not harm the dog.

I am surprised to hear you have a puppy that is only 6 weeks old!!! Most breeders would not think of taking the puppy away from the litter until at least 8 weeks of age-- that could be most of the problem. I got both of my GSP at the age of 8 weeks old. They were both super easy to potty train and they both only got up one time during the night to go to urinate (for about 4 days), then they both slept right through the night. They both were completely potty trained in less than 2 weeks-- no issues at all!

My GSP is 3 and still eats everything, and there have been no problems with her health. I've learned that it helps if you give them lots of chew toys, rawhides work best for me. Avoid flavored bones, my dogs like to rip of chunks and eat them, which is often followed by puking.

AGree with the first respondent about flavored bones. Also, Greenies are a problem. They swallow big chunks that get stuck in their throat, and then they puke. We buy lots of chew toys, which in turn are destroyed, but at least it's not your furniture. Experiment to see which ones they like best.

yes the GSP can be grey in color - solid, ticked or patched). It is a result of a mutation in the MLPH gene and is known as Dilution. A dilute grey pup carries two copies of this recessive allelle and its parents must both be carriers. Since its unlikley anyone would knowingly breed two carriers of the gene, the parents are likely of the liver and white phenotype. there is now a test for the gene so breeders can test parents before breeding them but its a new test and not all breeders do genetic tests so you might occasionally see a grey GSP.The grey pups can be registered with the AKC but the grey color is considered a disqualifying fault in the show ring.

Another possibility is that GSP that you saw was a black roan GPS. With the mix of black and gray all over in the roan shading, most black roan GPS like gray. I have a black roan GPS that is 8 months old, and sooo many people refer to him as being gray or blue.

As an owner of a 10 year old female GSP, I can't recommend having her outside all the time. She could be outside while you were gone, but when you're home, they want to be with you. They're very attached and tuned in to their people and need to be by your side when you're home. I do realize they are quite rambunctious and with two young kids, can be part of the riot! Playing ball inside or out will get her energy needs taken care of. And lots of walks, off leash if there's a place locally.

If you want your gsp to be a complete animal when indoors, by all means leave her outside. A gsp is a type of dog that has certain personality characteristics you learn to tolerate. It is part of the family and should be treated like one your children. she wants to be at your side at all times. Learn to accept her as your shadow.

This is why - people should research breeds before buying. No she will not do "okay" outside. My gsp mix, is my shadow. If I left him outside, he would get angry, and probably distructive. Much like my boarder collies I fostered.... And I can tell you first hand - if a dog is social and loving, and you leave it outside and treat it as un-wanted... It will have socialization issues - and more than likely you will pass it off to someone else, and eventually it will or could end up in a shelter. I have seen it, in many breeds. So before you ruin your dog, try contacting a rescue group, and explaining, you didn't researh before you bought a dog. --- Just think, would you put your kids outside, because they made a mess, or would you teach them acceptable behavior ?? -

I find it sad that you would buy a puppy and then want to leave it outside because your house is not big enough-- you really should have thought that through before purchasing the puppy. Puppies need love and socialization and GSP are one of the most loving breed that is very close to their owners-- you will completely crush that dogs spirit if you put it outside.

I live in MIchigan, which has similar weather. If you take your GSP on streets that are salted, you might want to get boots. Also, they get ice inbetween their toes and being that they're webbed, she will start biting at them if you don't reach down and clean them out. She will LOVE running but start with fewer miles until she's a little older and can handle the distance (8-9 months). Once she's older, she'll outrun you, I guarantee it! She should be okay without a coat unless it's in the teens. I put a coat on mine when it's below 25 or so and/or windy. They have some that are waterproof that just clip underneath.

You can't take your GSP puppy running until she is fully grown at 1 to 1 1/2 year. Running before can seriously damage her joints. A coat is definitely a good idea for the winter and in order to protect her paws against salt on the streets you should consider boots or a special wax for dog paws. Nadine

I put my GSP on the invisible fence at 4 months. She was a quick learner and really only went thrugh to greet the neighbor and his kids. She didn't take interest in other animals and birds until she was about a year old and she barks and chases birds constantly but respects her boundaries even when the collar is off. She may test them every few months bush I suggest a remote e collar to train her to respond to your call because they will tune you out if not trained of a consequence for not responding to you. I take mine everywhere and she knows her boundaries based on the lawn mower trails in the yards without ever being there before!!!

I have an 8 month old male GPS and a 18 month old female GPS. They were both trained on the invisible fence at about 4.5/5 months old. They learned in 2 days not to test the boundaries anymore. I have never had any issues with my male ever trying to leave the yard (even if he is chasing the decoy and it rolls past the shock point, he will just stop dead in his tracks and sit until I get the decoy-- he won't even try to test the boundaries. My female went through it 3 times (in over a whole year period) because we went next store to the neighbors and she got sooo excited she ran over...Once you bring them back through and they get the shock coming back in, they learn real quick not to try that again! She had not even dare try in a long time! We really love the invisible fence-- we have it at home and up at our camp on 3.5 acres-- the dogs respect the boundaries

As long as the GSP is not fully grown you have to be careful not to over exercise. Ours is 3 months old and a 2 mile run seems to be fine. I wouldn't walk longer than that though until at least 6 or 7 months of age.

He weighs 53 pounds which is the same weight when he turned one year of age. He is very healthy and is fed premium puppy food. What can I expect his weight to be at full maturity? His mother weighs 50 pounds and his father weighs 75 plus pounds. He also measures 24" at the withers.

I do not believe your GPS will get any heavier. At 12 months, they are most likely at there max height and usually weight as well ( they might fill out a little in the chest after that) but mine was about 48 pounds at 12 months-- three months later at 15 months she was 51 pounds and now at 18 months she is still 51 pounds. So, it is likely that he is at his maturity growth now.

The hair is changing color to a copper shade that rings the balding area and washes out to her normal color. We have had it check by the vet but it continue to grow in size. No suggestions from him yet as to the cause. Everything keeps coming back normal. Area is not red, just balding and has a copper color ring in the fur that fades into white with the usual spots. Lookes like someone pulled the hair out. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful. Skin looks healthy and is just smooth like a baby with freckles. The copper color seems to be growing and I am concerned that she is going to be a baldy.

This is just a guess, but ask your vet if the spot could be a button tumor or puppy strangles. I was told by my vet that both of these are somewhat rare conditions, but my pup had one of these. We used cortizone cream twice a day and it cleared up. Good luck.

She was the runt of the litter and was almost starved when i got her. The man told me she was 7 weeks but the vet said no way. She fit in one hand and her docked tail was still raw looking. I am guessing 2 to 3 weeks but how can I know for sure. She is eatting soggy food and drinking well. The vet gave vitamins but she is still small. How much should they weigh from 2 to 6 weeks?

I want to get a GSP but I also have 2 cockatiel birds. Would the GSP attack my birds to kill?

I have three registered GSPs and are excellent hunters, but will only hunt when I say Hunt em up. we also have a African Grey Parrot and a Large Greenwing Macaw and anything you introduce to them they will except as part of the heard and will even protect them. I have pictures of my MaCaw standing on top of my one GSP. They all were intruduced to our outside cats and they play and except them, but let a different cat enter the yard and they will chase it away.

We both work about 8 to 9 hours a day. He would get lots of exercise in evening , but worried the dog would be too stressed out. thoughts?

GSP's do demand alot of attention and affection. I don't think I would leave one in the crate for 8 to 9 hrs. Maybe if you could come home at lunch to let it out and exercise it a bit...Just a suggestion.

My vet told me a good rule of thumb is that a puppy can be crated for 1 hour longer than however months old they are...so for an 8 week old (2 months) old puppy, you can crate for 3 hours-- a e month old puppy for 4 hours-- a 4 month old puppy for 5 hours--etc... By 7 months old, the puppy should be able to hold his bladder for an entire 8 hour work day. I crate both my GPS puppies and I only had one accident one time and I think that is because I didn't watch to make sure he urinated before I put him in. I would not recommend putting an 8 week old puppy or even a 4 month old puppy in a crate for an entire day-- either let them out at lunch or maybe a neighbor or family member can until he/she is old enough to hold it for 8 hours.

I met a shorthair in a store on Mackinac Island and she was extremely sweet and laid back most likely from a great exercise. I know they're a highly energetic dog, thats why I want one. But will they calm down after a while and be as laid back as the one I met? I'd also like to train it to be a therapy or service dog. Would that make me able to bring it everywhere with me? I love dogs so so much. THX (:P)

The older a dog is, the more laid back that it is.The close they are to the German lines, the more laid back that they are.They were initially bred by German peasants to hunt with on the masters land & were hidden in their hits with them.They love their people and are known as "velcro" dogs, they love to be with their people.They MUST have exercise, preferably with you, like running, rollerblading or lots of catch,& then snuggle on the couch!

Yes, I have two GSP's and a bunny. The bunny as of now is in a cage, but I know people who have trained their dogs to be accostumed to them, and sometimes the dog lets the bunny sit on it's head :) it's so cute.

I have a GSP and he loves to carry around like 3 toys in his mouth at once. Why is that?

Although I do not know why I also have a GSP that wants to carry all his toys or balls at once. My concern is that his favorite ball is smaller and he picks it up 1st which scares me he may get it lodged in his throat.He is 3 yrs old now and so far never gotton choked. Amazing how much they can fit in their mouth at once.
