FCI – Dog breeds Group 7 Pointing dogs – Section 1 – Continental Pointing Dogs

Group sections 7: Pointing Dogs

Section 1 : Continental Pointing Dogs

Section 2 : British and Irish Pointers and Setters

  • 2.1 Pointer

  • 2.2 Setter

The group of Pointing Dogs includes both Continental Pointing Dogs as the British and Irish Pointers and Setters. The Pointing Dogs are distinguished by a pointing position when they have seen the animal they are following.

Derived from hounds, the dog breeds that make up this group first specialized in this role for hunting birds, before its use was extended.

These dogs are easy to train and pose few problems when living in packs..

The function has been the determining criterion for the integration of the races in this group, that brings together dogs of different morphological types: Bracco, Spaniel, Griffon, Pointer and Setter. According to the criteria of use, Spaniel-type dog breeds are also present in the group 8.
Pointing Dogs are divided into 2 sections, based on geographic criteria.

1 thought on "Wirehaired Pointing Griffon”

  1. Hello Ivana, I am very grateful for this beautiful article you wrote about the Griffon Korthals I have been looking for some time and reading some things about this breed, I have bred other breeds of hunting dogs, I am currently considering purchasing a copy of the Griffon Korthals. But my problem is hit with a pure strain, because there are people selling their puppies as pure and they have often been crossed with other breeds.
    I would appreciate it if it is possible on your part to point me to a breeder who has this breed, and that sells dogs.
    Thank you
