Yes pointers are great runners.  A group of owners get together on Sundays and let the dogs run for over 2 hours. While waiting for everyone to gather, the dogs run in a big field chasing balls and running about. About half way thru the walk, some dogs swim at the lake.  Got to meet some 12 pointers that day. Yup they like to run FAST, but they also listened to commands to come back.

 

I only go for breeds that work closely with people and take direction from people.

Wow, people letting their dogs do what they...need..to do.  All breeds are different in needs as you well know.  The pointers, and many other bird dogs need to move, not just kept in their kennel until hunting time.  Sorry to say, see it happen here many times.  Only being let out to run in the back yard here and there.  :(   Then the dog goes out to hunt, and they are just run down within a half an hr.  But they will keep going for their owners.  Not much going on in the finding of birds though once worn out.  I understand that you aren't hunting..right?   Still, all of that exercise..is great!   If you are going to show in the way you said, this is good for the pup.  :)  Great socialization too!


I'm not ready for hunting though I have started to consider it. Basically free food. 

 

Ya, all sporting dogs need to be exercised sufficiently to be able to do their job. Or be civil at home. I have a large tract of land so my dog can run at home as needed.  Mostly interested in showing at this  point, as both parents are good; and playing ball. Some pointers play ball so we are trying with this one. ANd he was introduced at the breeders with many obstacles found on agility courses. So maybe some fun there too.

 

Maggie, the breeder, is the organizer of the Sunday events. And she bred most of the dogs that attend.  SHe  is a trainer too, and was the woman that helped me train my rotties what is now so many years ago.
