German L/h Pointers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

NOW THAT Christmas and new year is over. It’s time for us and the dogs to get back into shape whether it’s for the show ring or back in on the fields just to get themselves and us off the couch.      The GLP is adaptable dog it can do most things. 2016 was an excellent year for the Sarscottah...

German L/h Pointers - week 34Updated : 19/08/2016

GERMAN Longhaired Pointers are wonderful dogs and when we lose one of these dogs we can take it personally, as due to them being rare breeds there aren’t many around.      I would like to send my condolences to Graham and Tracey Boyles on the loss of Irish Sh Ch Arany’s Dargo MIT Bleyos (21...

IT IS MY pleasure to keep an update report in the GLPS.      At the North of England HPR Ir Sh Ch Arany Flax mit Sarscottah was BOB and Sarscottah Boullin was BP and went on to win RBPIS. The breed judge was Nicola Calvert and BIS judge Des Hodgkinson.      I would like to ask al...

German L/h Pointers - week 15Updated : 06/04/2016

HAVING written the GLP breed notes for over ten years it’s now time for a fresh approach and I will be handing the reigns to Sarah Thomson, who I hope enjoys the experience as much as I have. Having owned the breed since 1999 our ambition was to produce stock that were credible additions to the gundog group and were al...

German L/h Pointers - week 14Updated : 30/03/2016

AN ‘ICING on the cake’ weekend for Sarah Thomson’s Sarscottah kennel. At the Celtic show in Ireland CACIB and BOB went to Arany’s Flax mit Sarscottah, CACIB also to Jack v Reitbach mit S and Celtic junior winners to Sarscottah Arris and Bouillon who also went RBB.      At the H...

German L/h Pointers - week 12Updated : 17/03/2016

IT APPEARS to have been a very interesting Crufts this year. I had to stay at home with our new acquisition, an Epagneul De Pont Audemer, a French HPR so rare there are only 400 worldwide. Its chances of being recognised by our KC is very slim which was the major part of its appeal and with a coat that looks like its been th...

German L/h Pointers - week 50Updated : 04/12/2015

AT THE HPRGA open show judged by Penny Williams BIS was Arany’s Greta, handled by Larry, which was a good result for this breed as she was RBIS last year. Breed classes were judged by Gilly Tully who awarded RBB to litter brother A Gus, for Ann Bishop and BP to Sarah Harvey-Speck’s Sarscottah Astro.  &nbs...

German L/h Pointers - week 45Updated : 29/10/2015

IT’S SO good to see a new litter doing well in the ring, which also increases the numbers of entries at shows. BP at GSOW judged by Carl O’Conner was Sarscottah Astro (Ir Sh Ch Jack v Reitbach mit S ex Ir Sh Ch Arany’s Flax mit S), owned by Sarah Speck Harvey and bred by Sarah Thomson. This was an excellent...

German L/h Pointers - week 41Updated : 01/10/2015

THE POPULATION analysis statistics supplied by the Kennel Club show a marked decrease in the numbers of registrations from a peak of 38 in 2005, 34 in 2010 then dropping to eight in 20013 and 18 in 2014.      The breed has come a long way in a short time but perhaps its novelty factor has now declined....

German L/h Pointers - week 40Updated : 23/09/2015

THERE’S nothing quite like a fantastic start to the shooting season and if our first day is an indicator of what the rest will be, then I’m sure it will be an excellent one.      We had booked a walked up partridge day on white grass and moorland, three guns and Wendy Bailey and I with thre...

German L/h Pointers - week 26Updated : 18/06/2015

THE GLPA (proposed) held its first working test under KC rules and regulations at Charlton Park by kind permission of the Earl and Countess of Suffolk and Berkshire. The estate had acres of hunting ground where each dog of the 70 entries could display their skills on their own beat, endless plantations for retrieves and wate...

German L/h Pointers - week 16Updated : 10/04/2015

HPRS ARE versatile dogs, which means they can both air and ground scent. Susan Woods has been training for Schweisshund tests run by the Bavarian Mountain Hound Society GB and although a Large Munsterlander owner, I thought this would be of interest to GLP owners. She writes: “Brubeck and I are working towards the BMHS...

German L/h Pointers - week 9Updated : 18/02/2015

THIS YEAR we are delighted to announce all breed classes will be sponsored by Jimbo’s Jumbo Sausages. This is in contradiction of the GLPC’s considered opinion that the smell and noise of fat frying is detrimental to the wellbeing of the breed. This comment was in reply to a question by Sarah Thomson at the...

German L/h Pointers - week 8Updated : 12/02/2015

Bred by the very successful kennel of Rob and Theo Gould, the sire of this three-year-old bitch is Donar v Mosmalen bred from Dutch and German lines and is ex ...
