ive always liked the look of the german short-haired pointer...if thats the true name for them.

and i was just wondering what the price range was for a young dog?

and do you know if they are any good for field trials?

thanks for the help

Toni

Seen them advertised recently for £450.00, as for the working ability, same as other breeds buy from working lines and preferably from working parents although that isn't a cast iron gaurantee.

Shooting Times is an obvious place to look, but this is a good online resource for gundogs:

and ive found this to be a reasonable site for asking advice:

trialing prospects, depends on how good the bloodline is i guess. but as has been said earlier there are no guarentees with any dog all you can do is try to stack the odds in your favour.

I bought my gsp from a top field trial kennels in 1995 for £350.I ordered him 6 months before the bitch was mated to make sure i got the breeding i wanted.Make sure you go to a working kennel rather than show kennel and you will be ok.

get in touch with the gsp club and they will put you in touch with local kennels.I had a 520 mile around trip to get mine :blink: but he was the breeding i wanted.Go and see the breeder and ask if the bitch is quiet whilst waiting a turn at a field trial.Some dogs whine so badly they have to be taken to the other side of the field because that can get you kicked out of a trial :blink: .

The litter i have advertised on behalf of a friend are going for £400 for dogs £450 for bitches. They are both from exceptional working lines (starefoot) the sire is owned by the president for the english gsp club, he is also a ftch. Allthough i have never seen him work the pedigree and reputation of this dog speak for itself. Im having a bitch out of the litter myself as i have seen the mother work with goshawks and a golden eagle near enough every weekend this season and she is a exceptional bitch!
Cant wait till my pup arrives i think they are about 4 weeks old atm.
