Terry Chandler, a master hunter and president of the National German Shorthaired Pointer Club, talks about the breed he loves. Dogumentary TV caught up with Terry at a Field Test in California City, California.

The German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) is a medium to large sized breed of dog developed in the 19th century in Germany for hunting. A versatile hunting breed, being an all-purpose gun breed of dog suitable for both land and water, it is streamlined yet powerful with strong legs that make it able to move rapidly and turn quickly. It has moderately long floppy ears set high on the head. Its muzzle is long, broad, and strong, allowing it to retrieve even heavy game. The dog’s profile should be straight or strongly Roman nosed; any dished appearance to the profile is incorrect. The eyes are generally brown, with darker eyes being desirable; yellow or “bird of prey” eyes are a fault. The tail is commonly docked, although this is now prohibited in some countries[3]. The correct location for docking for a GSP is after the caudal vertebrae start to curl, leaving enough tail to let the dog communicate through tail wagging and movement.[citation needed] The docked tail should not be too long or too short but should balance the appearance of the head and body. The GSP tail is carried at a jaunty angle, not curled under. When the GSP is in classic point stance, the tail should be held straight out from the body, forming a line with the pointing head and body. Like all German pointers, GSPs have webbed feet. They are known for going after water fowl in the water.The German Shorthaired Pointer is a member of the Sporting Group.

Michael Carroll says:

Good hunting dogs just be careful how you trained them to retrieve they have a chance of being toy aggressive

Brilliant breed! Love this video!

Josue Perez says:

Sucks that some of those dogs are tied down :/

Eric The Red says:

I love our GSP. She is the best dog. She needed 3 hours of running a day to remain balanced when she was young but now that she's 10, an hour a day is good, with a day or two off a week.

Federico Battistetti says:

Great video. I rescued one three years ago. I didn't now anything about the breed at the time, but I felt in love in a matter of seconds. He is my best companion and for me is the best dog and breed ever. I love him.

Hunter Ventures says:

and not inbreed like the labs

Malik Khazam says:

Vary nice doog

Alan Mac says:

Terrific video and you have some beautiful dogs. I'm in the UK and currently working with my ex wife's short haired pointer. She's a gorgeous dog and is getting used to flushing birds on a rough shoot. She is absolutely useless at retrieving compared to spaniels and Goldies that I've had before.

Andres says:

The first working dog we ever had was a GSP that lived to be 14 🙂
I hate to admit it, but I am a GSD/Malinois fanboy now

hannah odland says:

I'm thinking about getting a GSP but do they shed a lot?

GSP Life says:

Best dogs ever.

Gardenstatetom says:

hahah if only I trained my dog to not drag me around on the leash but hey at least when I take him on a run he keeps a good pace. I could not attest more to the protecting nature of these dogs one of my sister's male friends jokingly put her in a headlock and he left with a nice bite in his butt needless to say he got a few extra treats on the down low.

White Lightning says:

I bet you could train them to Bay Hogs and Coyotes. German Shorthairs, American Bulldogs and Belgian Mallinios are the best breeds.

White Lightning says:

I had one that weighed 90 lbs lean. RIP Max.
