Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Other Pets?
GWPs have a strong prey drive and don't cohabit peacefully with other animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and hamsters. Socialization from an early age may help them accept cats and dogs as part of the family. The breed is known to be aggressive with strange dogs, especially of the same sex.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Kids
GWPs have a lot of energy and should be supervised closely around young children so they don't knock them down accidentally. They are generally tolerant of kids in their own family, as long as they have grown up alongside them. Socializing German Wirehaired Pointers to be calm around children is important.
(Note: Every dog has a unique personality and distinct life experiences that affect his disposition. As a rule, adults should always supervise playdates between kids and their four-legged friends.)
Do German Wirehaired Pointers Swim?
With their webbed feet and water-resistant coats, German Wirehaired pointers were made for the water. They are excellent swimmers and one of their favorite activities is jumping into the water to retrieve a dog toy or stick.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good Waterfowl Dogs?
German Wirehaired Pointers are excellent waterfowl hunting dogs. They are versatile gundogs, however, and make adept upland hunting partners as well.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Hypoallergenic?
No. While GWPs shed lightly, they do shed consistently year-round. As a result, they leave pet dander in your home, the most common cause of pet-related allergies.
