It is relatively easy for you to groom a German short-haired pointer. Daily grooming of the German shorty pointer will stimulate the dog's own oil production. In addition, we will also remove aging hair while grooming him, which will also make his hair shiny and healthy. We should trim our dog's nails regularly and keep them as short as possible. We also want to keep our dog's teeth from decay and have them descaled if necessary. Beards and decorative facial hair should be treated with caution as a display dog. It's best to give your dog a bath the day before or two days before the show to make the hair regurgitate grease.
The German short-haired pointer can be fed lamb and beef, potatoes, and a cereal mixture of corn, oats, and wheat. Because this kind of food contains nutrients more suitable for digestion and gland function absorption and utilization. In addition, a proper balance of protein, carbohydrates, sugars, fats, vitamins, and minerals is needed. The demand for some trace elements and minerals should pay attention to the right amount, rather than the traditional concept that more is better. Some trace elements or minerals beyond the demand will cause certain damage to the pet's organs, even lesions.
Although the German Short-haired Pointer is not big, it needs a certain amount of exercise every day. You can run or walk freely in the yard, or take it out for a walk every day. Appropriate exercise not only helps to increase appetite and enhance the dog's physique but to a certain extent can also improve the dog's reproductive ability. We need to deal with German Short-haired Pointers on time and bathe them frequently. In summer, the hair is relatively long, so you can bathe them once a day, and in winter, you can wash them once every half month. Be sure to blow-dry the dog’s hair after taking a shower. This is to prevent the occurrence of a cold.
As an active hunting aid dog, the German short-haired pointer has a very high energy value and requires a great deal of exercise to meet this energy expenditure. They enjoy mental and physical challenges, which can be satisfied by hunting, hiking with their owners, or interacting with them for long periods of time. Therefore, the owner needs to ensure that the German shorthair pointer gets at least an hour of adequate daily exercise. They like water, and swimming is a good exercise if given the chance.
German short-haired puppies need to be fed three times a day until they are six months old. The best feeding times are 6 am, 1 pm, and 7 pm. Six - month - old puppies are fed twice a day. One-year-old dogs are fed once a day. The size of the dog's food intake should be adjusted according to the dog's food preparation and weight. Moist food should be served with a little hot water, but not boiling, and always make sure the dog has fresh water to drink. Do not overfeed the German shorthair pointer and do not feed the leftovers. He should be rewarded with some dog biscuits or broken up into small pieces of fruit and vegetables. Dogs don't care if they get a small or large reward, they just want a reward. Giving small, healthy rewards can prevent your dog from taking in more calories.
