German Longhair Pointers

8 posts in this topic

Has anyone here had experience with these dogs? I really like the way that the all Brown ones look.

Also considering a French Spaniel, any FM'ers have one?

Like I need another dog, but I really want a dog for Grouse hunting.

I think Ed Erickson at Autumn Breeze Kennels may have trained some. He's trained lots of dogs for German Hunt tests.

Yeah, I actually own a brown German Shorthair. I like him alot, they need alot of attention when they're young, but if you train them right you will have a great hunter and companion. Mine's going on three now, and he gets better every year, My dad has also had a couple and they have been great hunters. I'd go for it.

German Longhairs are similar to German Shorthairs only in name and country of origin.

The GSP was created by crossing the old Spanish Pointer and various Scent Hounds and a some outcrosses with the English Pointer.

German Longhairs on the other hand, were created by breeding Irish Setters, Gordon Setters, and French Spaniels.

yeah didn't think that they were related to shorthairs.

Not many people that breed the longhair German's.

I have a 16 week old French Spaniel. To early to tell how he is going to work out. One day he is really good an then the next not so good. Pretty sure things will work out with lots of exposure to birds and me being patient. I can tell you that he is a retrieving machine.

If your thinking German long hair look into the "Large Munsterlander" breed(see avetar) They are a german long hair but bread especialy for the versitile hunter. They can be hard to come by and well worth it. None better in my opinion. Their colors are only black and white plated with ticking.

Check the Large Munserlander Club of North America web sight you wont be dissapointed, you will be amased at what this bread can do.

Both the German Longhaired Pointer (GLP) and the Large Munsterlander (LM) are fine dogs. I watched a LM pass the field section of his test at the NAVHDA Invitational last Thursday on the way to earning his Versatile Championship (VC). The top NAVDA test and the only title NAVHDA bestows. The work that dog did was as good as any I saw that day.

IMO the biggest difference is picking between the GLP and the LM (besides the coloring - and all things being equal you might as well have a dog you think looks cool) is that the new German Longhaired Pointer Club of North America (google both clubs - good stuff) is organized through the German system which means that you would have the option of testing through the GNA system as well as NAVHDA. The LM club, like the Pudelpointer club, puts commendable restrictions on breeding, however the GLPs are a little more stringent as they follow the German system. The German testing system - upon which NAVHDA testing is based - is a thorough test of a dogs natural ability and development. This is the same testing system that the Deutsch Drahtharr DD and European breed Pudelpointers, LMs etc. are breed based on. Plus, like a DD breed dog, no member of the new GLP club can breed their dogs unless both the sire and dam pass specific tests both for performance and confirmation (the standard for confirmation is not based on beauty, but instead for function in the field.) In other words, not only are you guaranteed to get a dog breed for the field, but that guarantee is backed up with a single structured testing system. That appeals to me.

Believe me LMs are breed for the field. There is no one breeding these guys for the show ring, or flyball, or because their kid saw one in the window of the pet store at the mall, or because that's the dog that all the other guys in the rooster field own. Further, like the PP the LM breed club has done a great job of putting superior hunting dogs on the ground.

It's great to see people taking an interest in the V-Dogs!

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
