Pointers are even-tempered doggies that have an agile and sporty-looking appearance. Boasting graceful curves, Pointers are muscular dogs, covering the ground smoothly and at high speed, with a driving hind action. Their coats are smooth, straight and short with a glossy sheen. Pointers carry their heads nobly and proudly. Their most distinguishing features are the slight concavity on top of their muzzles which gives their noses a tip-tilted appearance and the typical pointer stance with tail and foreleg raised and head extended —ready for hunting!
Despite their size, Pointers can be good house pets but be warned—they will need adequate exercise to satisfy their high energy levels.
As active as Pointers are, they do need a diet that aids this. A high-protein, high-calorie diet is best in order to support their activity needs.
Pointers are one of the absolute easiest breeds to groom, only needing a brush over during the moulting seasons. However regular inspection of the coat should be made to check for potential skin problems.
