Pointer, breed description

Pointer is a dog of predominantly a dog, i.e. a dog doing a stance in front of a game.

A pointer dog is a tireless runner with an explosive temperament and an olfactory mechanism characteristic of all high-speed breeds.

Pointer is an affectionate and obedient dog, whose tremendous life force is expressed in tireless running. Dogs get along well with their own kind (provided that they are given a good education). They like children who especially appreciate them for their love of running.

In addition to the fact that he is a great hunter, a pointer can be a great companion to anyone who loves sports and long walks in nature.

Each breeder strives to produce individuals whose characteristics are as close as possible to those described in the standard.

Obviously, to achieve such results, it is necessary to choose as producers of specimens in which the somatic and functional characteristics of the rock are expressed to the maximum extent. Selection work carried out according to all the main criteria will not be slow to give good results. It is also important to remember that nature does not make leaps and it is impossible to improve the breed in one year.

The hunting qualities of the dog are determined by a combination of two factors - natural properties and training. The hunter can not affect the natural properties of the dog, in the sense of their volume, but he can turn them to their advantage and through proper training to achieve the maximum manifestation of the innate abilities of the animal.

Go through the "places of military glory" Pointers. Imagine that we are hunting ... in those lands that Lady Oaklen, a dog breeder from England, compared with the Scottish moorlands, and Julio Colombo found it ideal for assessing the exceptional hunting qualities of this breed.

Time has not changed anything here: neither the roads, nor any other structures still violate the original beauty of these hills and plains. But the lake teeming with feathered game. Natural meadows alternate with wide strips of wheat fields and wild partridges, the favorite prey of the pointer, returned to these places again.

A pair of Pointers, descendants of the breed that has long dominated among hunting dogs, hastily survey the terrain. ... On a hunt, first of all, you need to determine the question - under what conditions is a cross-search for a game possible? - provided that the dog has no obstacle on the way. It is always useful to teach her to systematically scour the territory (such as “shuttle”).

Cross-search is not a manifestation of indecisiveness on the part of the pointer and not an exquisite sight for someone who wants to enjoy the view of the dog at work, but an effective way to survey the area, in which there is not a single corner where the game could hide from the thin scent of the dog.

When dogs examine the terrain far from the hunter, then such an extended search is useful in all cases, because it saves a lot of human effort and allows the dog to quickly get to the place where the game lies. ... And so the dog instantly makes a stand! And we become witnesses of the exciting finale, when the dog and the game finally find themselves face to face. "Are you here ?! I know that! Now let's see who wins ..."

Rack - obviously, it is an olfactory reaction, it is a kind of reflex, due to the confidence gained by the scent near the prey. The dog takes off and instantly freezes, as if it were pressed "freeze-frame". A friend of the pair stops at the same time as a sign of solidarity. Now the pointer who made the rack leads the game.

Conducting - is an indispensable condition for the completion of the maneuver. The dog moves in the direction of the game gently along the thin thread, the smell that it emits, periodically making stops. This action allows her to maintain direct contact with the game, and once again proves the refinement of such a method as a stand. Here, everything is decided by the nose and the brain.

After so much effort invested in the search and management of the game, at the time of its takeoff and subsequent fall, the dog retains stoic immobility. Such self-denial is even more impressive at the stage of searching for and bringing down game when the dog hands his prey into the hands of a hunter!

The history of dog breeding. San Guido 1950 year. This year, the first most prestigious competition between the Pointers and Setters "European Cup" took place, in which Italy took the first place with the Pointer Gled - de la Gayo, owned by Dr. Ernesto Kappaloni. The second is France with a Pointer Union de la Yoyet.

On the meadow adjacent to the picturesque San Guido building, dogs move freely, play, enjoy freedom, and they simply cannot remain still! Looking at them it is impossible not to recall the words of the famous canine doctor Barbieri, “The animal is beautiful only when it best suits the purpose for which it was created.”

Therefore, the words "beautiful" and "useful" are synonymous. And yet, with regard to service breeds of dogs, sooner or later, individuals with an aesthetically pleasing refined appearance, but almost completely or completely devoid of those characteristics of the type and design, which their service requires, will fall in price.

Let's look at the gallop of modern pointers. Arkwright’s comment is appropriate here ... “we are going hunting with our dogs to have fun. Their search style with their heads held high and unusually moving tail, as if by magic develops our boredom in places where there is no game. And their grace and grace during the stand will increase our mood and with it a chance for a good shot. ”

Our goal is not to show you the eclectic actions of the pointers prepared at the exhibition for a certain number of minutes to depict the most correct and honed poses. It is much more interesting to look at the “live” work of a dog that still goes hunting and is forced to adapt to the conditions of the area and the game, which at the end of the nineteenth century forced the British to abandon hunting with cops and switch to the method of raids.

It is the combination of instinct, passion and mind that makes the work of a pointer a beautiful play. The same Sh. Hüzh said very well: “The Pointer jumps with his feet ... and wins by his instincts” - and V. Arkwright: “All the beauty of the pointer’s work consists precisely in its aging while maintaining its natural passion. Pointer should be as hot as a foxhound, and as soft as a child. ”

The hunter is not a destroyer of wildlife, as many believe, but only the keeper of the historical tradition, in which there is no place for violence. The only culprit in the death of animals is the so-called "progress" headed by a "great being" named Man.
