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.
