German longhaired pointer

Postby Sir Remington » Mon Dec 16, 2013 5:13 pm

has anyone had experience with German longhaired pointers before be, mostly looking for information on how they do duck hunting, not looking for information about any other breed.

If I recall they are the same ancestry as the munsterlander. I believe it's similar to what happened with cockers and springers. The black and white puppies were bred to be munsterlander a and the brown and or brown and white were Glp. Very similar traits and temperament from what I hear.

This is true as far as large munsterlander's go, but not small munsterlanders. If interested, I'd give VOM CORASCHATTEN a call. The breeder is very careful with her breeding stock and they test in both the german system and NAVHDA. They don't register dogs outside the german system though. They are known to be excellent at recovering wounded game, but also have a strong pointing instinct.

By the way, you will probably get more of a response over on the versatiledogs.com forum. The owner of the kennel I just recommended hangs out over there if you want to get first hand info on the breed.

Another recommendation for Cortney. Just passed VGP and I believe the NAVHDA invitational with an exceptionally young dog.

I have had 2 GLP,one I bought here,(in Canada) and one from Holland.They are an excellent duck hunting dog,if you train them like a retriever to get the basics in.Dont expect them to line,like a retriever,but,they will get what you shoot.They are an excellent universal hunting dog,that is personable,pliant,and tractable.How can I say that?I had the only Dual Champion GLP(show and field)in Canada, where the breed is recognized, and my dog and I did that,by the time he was 2, as an amateur.
Be very selective when you select the dog,as you want one that looks for you,and is aware of you...not a horizon buster.They are a super family dog.Often I would use a lab as a partner dog,to allow the pointer to dig for birds(upland).Yes,you can find a few good pointer type labs,but ,it is so much easier to get a good GLP to that state.My approach was to train them in basic retrieving,first,then ,using the table,like Bodo Winterhelt used,bring up the natural pointing skills.Good luck with them.By the way Eric Eriksmoen,has worked very hard,to get them certified in NAVHDA,since the USA AKC did not recognize the breed(there are so few of them).

There are a couple of guys here in town that have GLPs. They're a member of our club so I've trained with them some. The one out of a German line is a big, nasty, vicious, mean, ugly brute. We finally told him to quit bringing his dog when other dogs were on the training grounds. The other one is out of Belgium lines if I remember correctly. It's a nice looking dog about the size of an average Shorthaired and is very sweet. We've run NSTRA together and it's an ok dog. Doesn't run very big and has ok drive. Doesn't handle pressure well and will shut down at times. He did Champion it in the Amateur Division becoming the first GLP to champion in NSTRA. It did take a lot of runs to get the championship points. We did talk about duck hunting and he said his GLP will retrieve everything but waterfowl. When you put pressure on her to get her to retrieve a duck she shuts down. Is this typical of the breed? I don't know I've only seen the two.
