Owning a German Shorthaired Pointer is a true joy. At Crackerjack Kennels our utmost priority is quality and the health of our dogs; so litters are selectively bred to reflect a calm, family household temperament many owner’s desire. But don’t let their friendly, calm and composed family demeanor mislead you, our German Shorthair Pointers can turn on their instinctive pointing and retrieving skills in a flash, whether it's waiting patiently in the duck blind or field hunting for geese, the switch turns on and you get to witness the true skill of a pure bred Crackerjack Kennel German Shorthaired Pointer. Responsible owners should remember however that this dog was bred primarily for hunting purposes and as such, will have a high level of activity and energy that needs to be directed. We personally have trained our German Shorthaired Pointers to pull sleds during the winter as a way for them to train and have fun. German Shorthaired Pointers are friendly, intelligent, and willing to please. They are a wonderful companion and do best when included as part of a family.
