Pointer - Guide to Pointers

Description: The Pointer is a sporting dog which is athletic, alert, well balanced and graceful. While there is no definitive answer regarding exactly how the today's Pointer came to be, we know the first Pointers appeared in England around 1650. Additionally, it is strongly believed the Pointer's ancestors originated in Spain. There are somewhat different claims as to which other breeds contributed to the Pointer - one includes the Greyhound, Foxhound, and Bloodhound crossed with a type of setting spaniel. There are also claims that the Italian Pointer, Setter, Bulldog and Newfoundland all contributed.

The Pointer is a courageous dog with great stamina as well as tracking and pointing abilities. The breed was initially used to locate and point hare for Greyhounds who would then hunt the game. However, the Pointer became very popular in the 18th century as a bird spotter. He would locate the prey and stand motionless until the hunter was able to take aim and shoot.

The Pointer has been in the United States since the 1800s - possibly arriving at or around the time of the Civil War. In the 1870s, The Westminster Kennel Club was formed and one of the earliest Pointer imports named Sensation became their club logo which is still being used today.

Height: The desirable height range for male Pointers is between 25-28 inches (63.5 - 71.1 cm) and for bitches, between 23 - 26 inches (58.4 - 66cm) - according to AKC standard. In addition, the AKC Standard notes that the Pointer's "overall balance and symmetry" are of more importance than size. This is true for most country's breed standards.

Weight: The weight for a male Pointer should be between 55 - 75 pounds (25 - 34.1 kg) and for bitches between 44 - 65 pounds (20 - 29.5 kg) - AKC Standard.

Coat Type: The Pointer's coat is very short, smooth and should have a shine. Coat grooming is easy - all that's needed is regular brushing and bathing only when necessary. Note: you can even clean the coat by rubbing it with a towel which will help remove dead hairs as well as add sheen.

Color: The color of the Pointer's coat can be black, lemon, liver or orange. Any of these colors can be solid - or in combination with white.

Temperament : The Pointer is active, intelligent and adaptable. He is loyal and devoted making him a wonderful companion. Pointers also do very well with children, however younger children should be supervised, just so that unintentional injuries do not occur. The Pointer thrives when he part of his family. He is much happier left in the home as opposed to outside when his owner or family is away. Pointers generally get along with other dogs and pets, but must be socialized starting at a young age. The owner of a Pointer must always display leadership skills so that his dog understands his master is in charge. Daily exercise for your Pointer is a must - this breed enjoys jogging, long walks and even some enjoy swimming. While the Pointer is an ...
