Any Pudelpointer owners?
« on: February 02, 2017, 08:49:42 AM »
Was recently turned on to the breed and they have me intrigued. They appear to be great size 45-70 pounds and the best of both worlds for upland and waterfowl. On top of that everyone says they are great family dogs. So is it true? Anyone have experience with them?

I have three and addictedtohunting has one with I believe maybe another coming soon. I was a lab guy before but  I won't own another breed now. Ask away and I'll try to answer any questions. Either here or PM.

Wow, good to know. I've always been a lab guy myself, but have been interested in a GSP also. Was told it was a quality mix of both breed types, and I have to admit I just love the look of them.

How are they around kids and other people, well mannered and mild temper? We attempted to help in the re-homing process of a Viszla at one point but it was to attached to being just my wife and I, hated having other people around to the point where it would growl and snap at them for no reason.

Are your dogs from the same breeder? Looks like all of the local ones sort of work together with their breeding stock.

That's a bummer to hear about the Viszla.  My guess is those behaviors were likely due to environment rather than breed specific.  The dog probably was not socialized well as a puppy and was left alone a lot.  Hard to say.

I think you will find many of the versatile breeds can and will be fantastic family dogs given the right environment.  They are very smart, and young children can have a difficult time getting them to mind and behave.  Mine is a completely different dog when I am around vs. when he is with my kids and/or wife.  Consistency and some time spent training are key.

The easiest to train and best, most versatile dog for all owners will always be a well bred lab. "variety" breeds are never well suited to novice dog trainers with family obligations regardless of what the breeders tell you and the breed websites promote.

They're nice dogs, was out in the field pheasant hunting with one this past season alongside my dogs. My only thing is the price tag that comes with those dogs. Whole hunk of coin for a dog that does everything the rest of em do. But good looking dogs and a lot of drive. Will find and pick up birds for you.
There are only two types of dogs: wolves and wirehaireds.

Yep got my second coming in April. My PP will do it all from sitting in frozen water and breaking ice to retrieve all the way to hunting chukar on the Columbia breaks. I've yet to find a lab that will beat him to a retrieve in any condition. As for trainability, they are incredibly intelligent and love to please. He was my first dog that I tried to train myself and it's been a fun journey. They are very fun and clownish in demeanor and love their family.

I don't believe in Happy's comment. They are easy to train IMO. There is a lot to train with a good versatile, more so than just retrieving games, if you want your dog steady to wing,shot, and fall. I wouldn't consider a lab a versatile breed but more of a specialist. Yes they will hunt many types of birds but they aren't considered a versatile breed. I like labs also but I get a rush when my dogs are running full bore across a field and slam on point and hold it like a statue until I get there. Hard to describe until you've seen it in person. At maturity my dogs retrieve just as good as any lab I've ever owned with a little more style in doing it. Labs as puppies are better at marking and retrieving at a young age. At least the ones I have trained but after 12 months or so the Pudelpointers catch up.
A PP is cheaper than a well bred lab also. You might have to wait longer for a Pudelpointer though. All of my dogs are from Cedarwoods Kennels. Hopefully that helps.

I don't want to get into a dog breed debate, but I agree 110% on your statements.  I would prefer a versatile dog any day of the week over a lab, and I've had both.  To each their own.

Any time you're more than welcome. No promises on my teaching though.
