Why Pointers:

  • We chose the Pointer, because they are the ultimate quail dog. Nothing looks more refined and majestic then a well broke, stylish Pointer standing on point. That is the reason the Pointer is known for being the king of bird dogs.

  • Many people have said that Pointers run to big or that Pointer owners are crazy. I have found that there is a great variance in range in the Pointer breed. Some Pointer lines are All-Age dogs and some are Shooting dogs, on the odd occasion I have seen some that are classified as boot lickers, but for the most part I have seen a good hunting range within the breed. As a old timer once told me, "You can always pull a dog in with a check cord but, I have never seen one pushed out with one!" How true this is, in some breeds it is the norm for dogs to run not more then 15 yards in front of the handler, and I challenge you to send a dog like that 100 yards down to a fence line to work. I hunt in big open country, and my dogs cover much more ground then I do. I can not imagine needing to walk my dog into a covey of birds that would be in shooting range anyway. My dog covers the ground so I don't need to.
