Very good info from Highlander! I’m a NAVHDA member with a brace of GWPs. If you haven’t owned a versatile hunting dog, you’re in for a treat. You’re also going to be surprised at the over the top prey drive in these breeds. I do recommend contacting a NAVHDA chapter in your area, and if possible attend some training days to observe the different breeds. NAVHDA training is sneaky, the dogs have all they need instinctivel, the training is to teach you how to bring it out. All of the breeds become members of the family. They enjoy a comfy bed by the woodstove, but they all need a lot of daily exercise.Anyone have experience with Pudelpointers? I've had Golden Retrievers my entire life. My current is over 15 years old and I'm starting to look at puppies. I'm really torn between another Golden and the Pudelpointer.
