Travis the German Shorthaired Pointer at 7 months old—"Travis is a super cuddly and smart pup. He's extremely energetic and would be happy to run around all day if you'd let him. He has some issues with chasing the cat if he isn't exercised enough, but otherwise is happy to observe him from a distance and share his treats with him. He's still working on his manners as he will jump up when too excited and he thinks that he can climb onto the couch when nobody's looking! He's an amazing dog though and loves being around his people!"

"Kado the GSP at 1 year old in Montana after hiking up a mountain and setting up camp—I have always loved German Shorthairs because of their temperament and activity level, but was very surprised when I first got Kado. Being that she was my first dog I was unaware just how demanding training a GSP would be, but I caught on quickly. I got Kado when she was 2 months old from a local farmer; she was not potty-trained and lacked discipline. After I realized she needed 1. A confident pack leader (not just a friend); 2. consistency with training; and 3. lots of exercise, she became well-behaved and stopped chewing on my favorite shoes and the sides of my house walls. Down the road from where I live there is a 2.4-mile horse trail with a pond and ample prairie fields where I take Kado every day to run and swim. Some days she requires runs up and down the trail twice and some only 1/2. What I found out is that she is most happy when I invest the time to run with her, as she dashes between the fields and the pond I'll throw sticks for her to retrieve, or place pheasant feathers around so she can seek them out."

"Kado the GSP at 1 1/2 years old—when at home Kado got into the habit of entertaining herself when I couldn't, like throwing chew toys and bones down the stairs then running down, fetching, running up and repeating. I have found that she will let me know (by getting in my face and whimpering) if she is bored. Kado is smart and stubborn and will do anything to please me, but on the flip side she has shown signs of anxiety if I am gone for more than two days, which has worried me since I am preparing for deployment. I did, however, find a wonderful home for her while I am gone. They have 2 other GSPs and that seems to keep Kado socially occupied and anxiety free."

"Kado the GSP at 1 year old, photo taken after a long day of swimming and chasing swallows—Kado's a lot of fun, but with that fun comes lots of responsibility. For anyone looking into getting a GSP, make sure you are willing to dedicate a lot of your time to physical training and mental stimulation. They are worth every second!"

"Tuff the German Shorthaired Pointer and I live in Wyoming, but are native to North Carolina. Though we've been in WY for a number of years our skin is still a bit thin for the sub-zero temps of the winter. This photo was taken hunting blue grouse in the Big Horn Mountains above Tensleep, Wyoming, in mid-October of 2009. Tuff is a very staunch pointer; as seen here, I am always able to walk past him after he points, flush a bird, shoot, and return to him to release him for retrieve. He is 2 1/2 years old in this picture, and weighs 73 lbs. in the off season, he hunts around 65 lbs. His nose is keen, he seldom "bumps birds" (flushes them unintentionally), when he does he freezes instead of bounding ahead. He hunts methodically and quarters on command. He is my first personal dog, though I grew up with pointers of all kinds. His personality is best described as aloof, and I attribute this to him being my first dog, he never had to strive for my attention. Whether I am gone for an hour or a week he greets me the same way, as with any stranger—a hound-like bawl with wagging nub, a quick sniff and paw on the leg, then back to whatever he was doing before, usually lying next the heater. The bird in this picture being caught out in the open like this with Tuff so close was frozen and to my surprise I was able to walk to the other side and take a few pictures. I don't claim to be a great dog trainer; I took a few tips from the long time upland game hunters of my family, read a few books. The majority of what my dog does, he does because of his instincts. I rewarded those instincts when they were correct and ignored them otherwise. I attribute most of his hunting success to his breeding. Tuff's a great companion, hunter and friend. Outside of hunting we lead a very active lifestyle, jogging, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, hiking, if it’s outside Tuff gets to go, and if he can't he's content with sitting in the pickup, house, or kennel as long as it’s warm."

"Cali is a major part of our family. She loves people, and other dogs. Her favorite thing is to fetch and return the ball. She will drop it by your feet or on your lap for you to throw and if you don't throw it she will pick it up an drop it again. And never tires doing this. She loves to go for walks, travel on vacation or just to the store in a vehicle. She loves to point at birds, cats, deer, rabbits. Any type of animal...when she is on point doesn't matter the distance (she has eyes of an eagle lol). She gets along with our other German shorthair... just like sisters. A great breed for family and kids."
