    No sir I'm not in the market for one but was considering training 1 for a client, this dogs seems to love water and has strong desire. Only other gsp I ever saw was a upland hunter. Thanks for all info fellas.

    If you luck into one that loves water (keep him warm); your good to go. If you get one that doesn't care for it; better to keep 'em on upland (and save yourself the head-aches)

    I've got a good one and she is a very fast swimmer. Can only count to two though, but with our shooting that is not generally an issue.


    Have to put on her Neoprene vest when it's cold. I love them, they are the Gooser of the hunting dog breeds.

    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    I've asked the question before and got zero response. So, here goes again. Anyone know a good GSP or GWP (that's versatile) in the southeast that may have some pups on the ground?

    Greatly Appreciated,

    Contact Brenda Roe @ http://www.walnuthillgsps.us/contact-us.html

    I know you said Southeast but if you want one from really good water lines talk to Crystal Kennels in NY. http://www.crystalkennels.com/ She breeds Shorthairs they way they should be. Big strong dogs, not cut-down trial dogs.

    Mark, go to www.NAVHDA.org under the membership tab you will find a map of all the NAVHDA Chapters, find the one closest to you and give them a call. NAVHDA is where to find the Versatile GSP's and GWP's!

    Deutsch Kurzhaar is German for German Shorthair. I am aware of the different registry but that breed is a German Shorthaired Pointer. There is just a secret handshake in the club.
