Essentially the original hunting dog, the English Pointer is a rare breed that can focus lazer-like attention on the job at hand but still be a devoted and attentive companion. Smart but a bit bull-headed, a firm hand is needed for training. The breed’s reputation for an outstanding memory is a hallmark trait, and once you teach your English Pointer something, the dog will never forget it. The ideal home for this lovable breed has lots of space for exercise and exploring, but don’t feel it’s a hunters-only dog. Families adore them for their gentleness and amicable personality, and they are great for family outings. Just be ready and OK with having the local birds “pointed” out to you.
