    Try to contact Pudelpointer on this forum. I haven't seen him post for a while but he has two pudelpointers and is doing quite well with them. I have seen one of his work and he is an awesome dog. He could give you advice. Try sending him a PM when you can.

    The pudelpointer is not a mixed breed.

    Every dog is a mixed breed including labs and collies. However the pudelpointer breed has actually been around since the 1800's. They are very strictly bred for hunting now, and for that reason will hopefully never be registered with the AKC.

    Welcome, I have a friend with a Pudelpointer, he shares your Never in the AKC sentiments. No-worries; as a hunting dog the breed is probably too pretty for the big-time show ring in anyway The dog does very well on Duck, probably the one of the best Waterfowl-water loving, versatile's I've ever seen. He's got the medium-long coat, does well on upland too. I was surprised the coat didn't seem to collect brambles, it looks like it would, but it's a pretty rugged wash-dry coat.

    Go where? Thank you for the acronym but could you use it in a sentence?

    GDG to the bathroom?

    GDG to get the ducks?

    GDG to heaven?

    Or do you actually mean they just have "go"?

    I'm From BC Canada, do quite a bit of hunting, birds and big game. After really getting addicted to ducks last year, I have decided to finally take on the huge responsibility of a dog. Problem is I am allergic to labs and most dogs. That left me with about 5ish choices of retrieving dogs as far as I could see (with limited shedding). I Wanted something that was a real hunter too, not a show dog. I looked at poodles, Portuguese water dogs, Wire hair griffons, GWP's, and then found something called a Pudelpointer. As there isn't a lot of information on them, and most people initially think of labradoodle, I have included some information on them as they are a breed of their own, and not a mutt. This is the dog I will most likely end up with.
    Breed: Pudelpointer
    Type: Pointer


    Hunting Style

    The Pudelpointer is a versatile hunter bred for a combination of a very good nose plus speed, endurance and hunting desire. They will exhibit natural pointing and hunting instincts and will enthusiastically retrieve on land and water.General Appearance

    The Pudelpointer is a large breed with a dense, wiry coat that is known for very limited shedding. Color should be liver or chestnut but black is also seen on occasion. Tails are generally docked to roughly 2/3 of the original full length.Size

    Height usually ranges from 21 to 26 inches from the ground to the highest point of the shoulders and weight usually ranges between 44 and 66 pounds.Disposition

    While not a popular breed in the United States, the Pudelpointer is becoming more widely recognized due to its combination of hunting ability and disposition. The breed is generally viewed as an excellent companion in a home environment and is easily trained.

    and so that leaves me with a few questions. I am hoping to start with Bill Hillmann's puppy video, to start the training. Is this a good idea, even though this isn't a lab? He says its good for any type of retrieving dog. Is there any better video more suited for training a pointer? I am hoping to make this more of a duck dog, as thats what I do more of.


    Here are some hunts from the past season















    Just curious, how did you isolate aversion allergy to specific breeds?

One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.
