Pudelpointer- Bob Ferris, in Boise. Had Labs for 30 years and switched about 8 years ago, best decision I’ve ever made. Easy to train, so much natural instinct, awesome in the field, and best of all, great dog at home. Definitely have an off switch. If someone comes over to the house, they act like all pointers, super excited and want attention, 5 minutes later they’re asleep at their feet.
Is that you Pat? Can’t be too many fish makers with Pudelpointers 😂 Josh Pieratt here, hope retirement is treating you well wherever you ended up. I’ve definitely considered them, wish I was able to spend more time around your dogs to get a feel for them.

This what came to mind for me. I trained a WPG for a client out of CA and she was very watery but didn't have the coat for the colder winters here in WA imo. I've seen some nice pudelpointers work both as retrievers and upland dogs and there are quite a few talented amateurs in WWA with Ferris lines.

Is that a GWP Vizsla cross?
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Take a look at the English Setters, wonderful hunting dogs and great family members. Travel well. Will relax by the fire at night and run all day long during the hunt. I'm on English Setter #4 now after living around Labs for many years. I use my Setters for upland (Chukar, Quail n Huns) and high mountain Grouse. Quite often, I pack in behind gates to hunt so we sleep in tents. They climb in after a day of running hard, get on their beds and stay there unless they're trying to get into my sleeping bag.
 If there's any issues or drawbacks to the English Setter, it's that they're smarter than the owners and what's worse, they know it.
 The only breeder I know of on the west side is Setter Ridge Kennels on Whidbey Island. We've gotten all of our dogs from this breeder but I know there are others for sure on the east side.
Good luck with your endeavor. Picking a hunting dog is a big decision.

I have recently became aware of the "Italian Bracco" and fell in love. The problem is finding a breeder with pups.

GWHP ALL THE WAY!!!   GSHP’s are the most spastic dog alive, I’ll never own another.   Get a female WHP and you will jot be disappointed.  Also find a good lineage with a hunting blood line.  A pound puppy would be a mistake.

I cannot agree with your assessment that German Wire Hair Pointers are the most spastic dogs. That is not my experience, however they cannot be treated like fat labs. They do need exercise but  but are not as crack headed as some may say. Ive found them to be way more chill than German Shorthair Pointers.

Sounds like we agree.   WHP are awesome.  SHP are spastic and to be quite frank one of the dumbest dogs I have ever owned.   Good dogs for hunting but that’s about it.

Completely agree. I'm on my 3rd English setter and will probably have my 4th (and final) this spring. There was an English setter breeder named Jim Jorgenson in Bothell, and I think now Rochester, who has been active in field trials and has had some decent dogs. I have a relative who has had a couple from him. My current dog and next one come from Moscow, ID.

A Wirehaired vizsla is a separate registered breed than the (smooth) vizsla! But yes many generations back it had German wirehaired pointers bred with the vizsla! We have had several (smooth) vizslas in the past and my daughter had interest in a wirehaired vizsla after we saw one several years back and I did the research for her! She ultimately found a nice French Brittany mostly due to price and availability!

Is that a GWP Vizsla cross?
