About GSP's
GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTERS 101
What A GSP is Like to Live With!
(YOU MUST HAVE A SENSE OF humor!
GSPs are highly energetic, athletic dogs. Being high-energy canines, they make excellent jogging and running partners. They can even keep up with a bike.

To stay physically and mentally fit, generous and regular off-lead exercise is required for the majority of GSPs. A fenced yard (either physical or invisible) is ideal. Even with a yard or field to keep them busy, German Shorthaired Pointers should not be left alone for hours on end. They are very people-oriented dogs and thrive on companionship.

  • The older dogs are less active, and are ideal placements with families who want a more calm dog.
  • Obedience training is strongly recommended.
  • Need lots of room to run, GSP's are not the best apartment dogs.
german shorthaired pointer
The German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) is not for those faint of heart or weak in spirit! The GSP is a versatile, tireless hunter of feathered and furred game, over land or water, also used to track wounded game. An affectionate, loving, loyal family companion and bed-warmer.

GSPs can be protective of their home and their humans. GSPs retain a puppy level of energy throughout their lives. A sense of humor should be a prerequisite for any future GSP owner.

A GSP’s antics are often not appreciated by family members. The GSP loves to be around people assuming it has been properly socialized. The GSP can be happy in a non-hunting home.

Extra effort is needed to direct their minds and boundless energy. GSPs become bored very easily if not kept busy. The breed is people oriented, sometimes to the point of being clingy.
