History

The breed’s name is also its job description: Pointers point, and they’ve been pointing for centuries. In the days before rifles, British pointing dogs hunted hares in tandem with coursing hounds. The Pointer would find and indicate prey, and the hounds gave chase. In the 1700s, with the rise of wing-shooting, the Pointer became a devoted and durable gundog. In pointing and retrieving game birds, Pointers have few peers—and their fans say that no dog does it better.

Care and Health

The Pointer’s short, dense, glossy coat requires minimal maintenance. A weekly brushing with a soft-bristle brush or a hound glove will help to remove dirt and loose hair and keep the dog looking his best. The ears should be regularly inspected and cleaned if needed with soft gauze and an ear-cleaning solution—your veterinarian can recommend a good brand to use. The nails should be trimmed often if not worn down naturally, as overly long nails can cause the dog discomfort and problems walking and running. Some dogs are prone to getting overweight, so watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level.
