Overview
This breed is very active and full of energy making him ideal for an owner that loves the outdoors. Very affectionate and intelligent, the Pointer makes an excellent hunting companion. Hunting instincts are usually always present in this breed.
Character
Friendly and energetic, this breed can also become very timid if not properly socialized at a young age. The Pointer can also prove difficult to train. As this breed has hunting instincts, it is not recommended for homes with small and passive animals.
Temperament
A very even-tempered and alert dog that generally loves to be around people. This dog makes a wonderful companion, but is not recommended for the average home. The Pointer does best in a field environment, but will also do well in a regular home providing he has an experienced handler and sufficient exercise.
Care
Firm bristle brushing occasionally will suffice for this very easy to groom breed. The Pointer generally only needs to be bathed once every six months as they are fairly clean. Average shedding, a wipe with a dry towel or a rubber brush will remove much of the loose hair.
Coat
The Pointer has a very short coat, which makes grooming a breeze. The coat should remain short, dense and smooth. The coat should also have a shiny appearance.
Training
The Pointer has a short attention span and should always have variety. Can be very willful and easily distracted so firm training is a must. Obedience classes at an early age are recommended.
Activity
The Pointer does best in a field environment and loves the outdoors. A very tireless breed, this dog requires extensive exercise or he can become destructive. Acreage is best.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of 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.

Your dog is being submissive towards a predator that is larger then him. If you want to train him out of that, contact your local hunting trainer.

He needs to go to a vet within 3 days of getting him. Make sure he is approved from a vet for being in a home. If the pup is raised with the cat, then the pup should be fine. But remember to allow the cat to have as much space high above to get away from the pup when he/she wants too.

As long as the pup is on leash and you don't let him eat anything off of the ground then he is fine. Remember to wash his paws after as well and to make sure he drinks water only from your home until he has the rest of his shots. If he is to interact with any other dogs, ask and make sure they are up to date on their vaccinations.

He jumps on the kids a lot and they tell him "No" with a loud tone and they will push him down or away. And he'll come right back and jump again. He won't do it to my wife or I. Both of us have been more agressive or foreceful. I can just call out his name, walk over to him, or snap my finger and look at him and he'll sit, lay down, or walk away. But with the kids he'll continue to jump, or bite on their shorts/shirts, even walk up behind them and bite their clothes. How can we stop this behavior with the kids? Also, we have been crate training and he's been doing real well with this. But recently he's peed in the house a few times and we are consistent with taking him outside. I'm wondering if he's marking his territory. Thanks.

He is marking his territory. Make sure you clean it up with an enzyme cleaner. As for the training with your children, you must train the puppy that it is not okay to jump up on the kids. Once the kids say no to the dog, you must go over and reinforce the behavior to show the dog that the kids are above the dog as well. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer for more help/advice.

Yo have to correct your pointer every time. Use positive reinforcement when she doesn't nip you. Lavish her with praise when she is good. Give her a firm no immediately and consistently when she nips.

For the time being while I'm at work I am crating him, coming home at lunch to walk him and take him to our mini "puppy park" to run after work...will that suffice for adequate exercise until the weekends? Also, he hasn't tried to harm my kitty, but he does growl and "spring" at them...is this just being a puppy and he'll grow out of it or am I to keep them separated for life? Thanks!!! Jennifer

I would be concerned for your kitty. You have a hunting dog and smaller furry animals may not fare well even with a puppy. I have a friend that just lost her older smaller dog to a 4 year old pointer that she adopted. She had the new dog only about a month and lost her old dog yesterday to it. I don't think the pointer was being properly exercised. She said it was destructive with it's toys.

It's been a month and he and the kittys play....if you're consistant with a dog, they know how to act. All I do is say easy and he plays with not tries to "hunt" the kittys.

I have to disagree, I adopted a full grown pointer 2 years ago that had been severely neglected. We have 3 cats and she never harasses them. Obviously not all dogs will be the same. But you must use positive reinforcement when your dog acts accordingly around your cat. I will say that my Pointer is a smidge possessive but I make sure to praise her and pet her with my free hand when I'm loving on my cats. If your dog makes any unwanted gestures towards your cat or rough houses, correct quickly with a firm authoritative no. Pointers can be bossy if you are not a firm yet gentle leader. Best of luck!

I adopted a 4 year old pointer. Is it easy to teach him to go without a leash?

I think it should be easy, I'd follow the basic "come" command at close range with a dog whistle-and if you choose you could use a remote collar to later allow the dog to be able to run off-leash using the dog whisle(collar if necessary) to call the dog back. -my pointer really needs to run quite a bit off leash daily.

My pointer is very good with my 7 year old daughter. He does jump on her a lot, but he can get aggressive when she's laying on the floor playing with him. He loves to play fetch with a ball and runs like a horse outside. lol

I have pointer I got him when he 6 wks old he is now almost 2yrs old. He loves to play, great with my daughter and he loves to play fetch. I will say that they shed a lot. I have white hair everywhere in my house. This type of dog is definetly a outside dog.He's bery protective and will bark if he here's anything strange. My dog is harmless he looks like he will attack a person but I have not seen him do so.

Yes plenty of hair my home is filled with his white dog hair. When I wash clothes his hair clings to them. I constantly have to sweep the floor and I have piles of his hair. If you do decide to get a pointer plz keep outdoor.

I groomed my pointer daily and he still had hair all over my house. When i touch him all I saw was hair in my hands. I have taken him to a personal groomer and she said she got no hair when she bathed him, but I can tell you he sheds all the time.

Get with a positive reinforcement trainer ASAP! Find one at www.apdt.com. Do NOT use traditional (aversive) training. Pain makes the fear/reactivity/aggression WORSE. This behavior will certainly be a worse problem if you do nothing and will most likely end with a dead dog..
