Mention “German Pointers” to most upland hunters in the US and they’ll thinkof one dog: the German Shorthair Pointer. For a few folks, German Wirehair Pointers may come to mine. The one dog just about no one will think of is the German Longhair Pointer.

This is understandable. Unlike it’s shorthair and wirehair cousins, the German Longhair Pointer is virtually unknown outside of Europe. To find out out why, and to get the fully story on these beautiful dogs, check out this post on Craig Koshyk’s Pointing Dog blog.

You can find out more about the German Longhaired Pointer in Craig Koshyk’s book Pointing Dogs: Part One, the Continentals. It’s a great read and well worth the money.

Also, if after reading about the Longhairs you decide you have to have one, check out Deutsch Langhaars vom Coraschatten Kennel in Mosinee, WI. It looks like they turn out some real nice ones.
