The Pudelpointer was developed in the late 19th century to be the perfect hunting dog, combining the German Hunting Poodle, or Pudel, with an English Pointer. The German Pudelpointer is also sometimes known as the Pudel, Pudlepointer, or the Poodle Pointer. Although they are purebred dogs, it is possible to find them in shelters and rescues. Remember to adopt. Do not buy, whenever possible, if this is the breed for you. This hunting breed is friendly and eager to please, but they also have a lot of energy. They are best suited to someone who is very active. A large yard helps, but these dogs thrive on interaction with their favourite humans. Pudelpointers are not shy or afraid of guns, which obviously makes them an excellent choice for working and hunting. If you are someone who has a lot of energy and want a larger dog with all the loyalty in the world, this could be the dog for you.
The coat of the Pudelpointer is usually brown, brownish red or black, and may sometimes have white patches. Pudelpointers can be prone to weight gain if they do not get adequate exercise, as they are very energetic dogs. Make sure your dog gets at least one good walk of half an hour to an hour’s duration a day, with some active play sessions and shorter walks mixed in. Because the Pudelpointer is a strong, medium-sized dog, it can easily injure smaller, over-excited children. The Pudelpointer is not malicious, but sometimes forgets its size and strength. The Pudelpointer has a strong prey drive and can be prone to chase smaller dogs, cats or other household critters. This hunting breed needs a human with a firm handle on training, but with a little consistency in the beginning, training your Pudelpointer should go smoothly.
At the end of the 19th century, hunting was very popular in Germany and enthusiasts wanted the ultimate hunting dog. Baron von Zedlitz, a respected dog breeding expert, suggested crossing the German Pudel with the English Pointer. Hunters wanted a dog that could swim, track scent, retrieve game and not shy away from the roar of a gun or big game. Over the course of 60 years, breeders created and refined the group of Pudelpointers into the versatile and affectionate breed we know today. The American Kennel Club admitted the Pudelpointer to the Founder’s Service Group in 2004.
