I am not a dog trainer. All I did was introduce them to birds, and they did the pointing and retrieving naturally. The pic. of the 3 pheasants are 3 birds that my female pointed out that my buddies well seasoned dogs ran right by. My male was not there that day but he can point and retrieve just as well as my female. They do a great job also retrieving geese.

I had to put my 5 year old Drahthaar down a few months ago. Liver cancer. If I lived closer, it would be tempting.

I have run English Pointers, setters, and Springers for a lifetime. However, after six years with a Wirehair, I will have no other dog.

Wirehaired Pointing Griffons and German Wirehairs (Drahthaars) are two very different breeds. The Griffons are appreciably smaller and most are much shorter ranging. I have hunted with both and even showed a friend;s Griffon at Westminster (he won the breed). The Griffons I hunted with also had an unusual bounding gate. They are sweet dogs and easy to have around.
