    I’m in search of a GSP for hunting and family dog.  What book or info source do you recommend for training?  Been over 20 years since my last English Pointer, need to see what the new techniques are.

    I’ve never had a German Short-hair. Although I’ve known a few that have. From what they have said in conversation, is they need a lot of room to run and run a lot. They are very high energy dogs and if they don’t get this simulation/ run time they will hqve you constantly correcting them as a house pet.

     

    Not to try and push a Labrador, I have had two. Although these are high energy dogs also. The ones I have had have made good house pets and good hunters for upland game and waterfowl. The ones I have had anyway seem to enjoy just laying around the house until you call them to work.
