Publisher's Summary

The German shorthaired pointer, or GSP, is an exceptionally versatile hunting dog that was bred in Germany in the 19th century. Like all pointer breeds, GSPs are very capable of spotting and quietly drawing attention to their quarry.

Included with breeds like bloodhounds and English pointers, however, GSPs are also excellent trackers that are both fast and agile when pursuing game. This is a boisterous breed that craves interaction from its human companions, making the dogs unparalleled as companions for large and active families.

These dogs are extraordinarily active and outgoing, and without enough vigorous exercise and regular training sessions, their delightful energy can develop into destructive hyperactivity. This book will provide you with all the tools you need to keep your German shorthaired pointer entertained and engaged from his first days at home until his final years.

Packed with essential knowledge about the GSP, this guidebook will answer all of your most pressing questions, including:

  • Is a German shorthaired pointer the right breed for me?
  • How do I choose the perfect canine companion for my household?
  • Which training methods are most effective for GSPs?
  • How do I avoid or extinguish common problem behaviors?

The Complete Guide to German Shorthaired Pointers is an all-encompassing manual to your affectionate and eccentric canine companion. Veterinarian Dr. Jo de Klerk thoroughly covers all aspects of these well-rounded hunting hounds, including their history, temperament, and health. 

Pet parents who choose to share their life with an enthusiastic German shorthaired pointer will treasure the indispensable information found in this book about the history, temperament, and health of their precious pooch.

Likely better to actually get the book

While there is a lot of good information in this book, the narration is hard to listen to. The extent of mispronounced words is distracting at best, and increasingly frustrating the further into the book you get. I also wonder about pictures or diagrams that may be included in the book to make the information more valuable.

I don't think the author has ever owned a gsp

Narrator clearly had no knowledge on the subject. Mispronounced words and innuciation through out was irritating
