German Shorthaired Pointer News

 The German shorthaired pointer is a breed of gundog well suited to family life as well as a very versatile hunter. These dogs are very intelligent, bold, and affectionate dogs that are cooperative and easily trained. They rank 17th in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs, being excellent working dogs. The German shorthaired pointer is very good with children, and have proven to be a very loyal family pet. Most German Shorthaired Pointers make excellent watchdogs. This dog breed generally gets along well with other dogs. They possess a strong hunting instinct and are a very energetic dog.

The German Shorthaired Pointer needs plenty of vigorous activity. This need for exercise coupled with the breed's natural instinct to hunt, means that training is an absolute necessity. The GSP distinctly independent character and superior intelligence makes for an wonderful family companion as well as a great gundog. Strong, loyal, and intelligent are the characteristics summing up the German Shorthaired Pointer.

 CONGRATULATIONS TO DAKOTA AND OWNERS MIKE AND SHANNON TREISCH!!!

Tracy,

Here are a few pictures of Dakota and his Dock Diving. He has taken 2 first place jumps in the Pro and Senior division.
There are 5 divisions, Splash, Junior, Senior, Pro, and Extreme. They are divided into length of the jump that the dog does, and then they are put into one of the 5 divisions. The jumps consist of the dog staging on the 40 ft. dock and they run and jump into a 30-35 ft pool.
There are judges along the length of the pool and where the base of the dogs tail goes into the water that is the length of the jump, this makes it equal for all dogs regardless of the size. The dog swims back and exits the pool by a ramp that is at the edge of the pool and reaches the deck of the dock.
Dakota won his first place with a jump of 21 ft. 3 inches. in Lancaster. He was the only dog that jumped into the pro division out of about 20 dogs that day.
His second first place was at the Pet Expo in Columbus, where he jumped 19 ft. 5 inches. The cut off from Senior to Pro is the 20 foot mark. There was a lot more competition at the Expo, and there were some pro dogs there that were jumping 24 to 27 feet. The world record is right at 30 feet.
Dakota loves to do it, and what a great way to help keep him in shape for hunting season.
