My malinois tuck into small crates happily.

If a Pointer is on the list get one. They're quiet possibly the most beautiful dog breed, ever.
This is good to know!

I expected this thread to be dockdiving pictures.


Disappointed.

LOL! My pics are on my camera and I would have to dust off my computer, remember we're the on switch is and upload them to show you...

But I DID post a video of a relatively handsome and somewhat brave boxer mix doing some dock diving.

IME field bred pointers, of any kind, tend to be smaller than show line dogs. Most of the English pointers I've been around were 35-50# fit (40-60 in the overweight condition most people keep their pets). My limited experience w/ GSP & GWP has been the same. Despite the hype from the german fans, I've found English to be excellent fur dogs with a strong kill drive, so good training in regards to small animals is a must.

Vizsla's are awesome. I've met a fairly wide variety of them through the daycare/boarding facility I work at.

I'm in love. So in love. The one thing I've found across the board is that they love to jump on you. I'm sure this is something that could be prevented with training early on, but it's definitely something to be aware of. All of the ones I've met love to cuddle and are pretty velcro.

I'm not going to lie.. I've considered giving up my future cattle dog puppy and going with a Vizsla instead. They've totally wiggled their way into my heart.

It's where I'm leaning too.

We are still likely two years out though, unless something were to happen where Obi couldn't compete anymore.

Everyone should get a Vizzy Okay, not everyone but they are pretty amazing dogs if you can give them the mental& physical stimulation they need!

My husband said "I thought that we would get a nice, friendly, quiet golden next!"

I'm not sure I can do it. They are just so boring to me! (No offense golden folks! I think they're great, they're just so...vanilla? to me).

At work the loudest dogs we have are goldens, also the hairiest, also they're often snarky with dogs and obscenely rude with people.

I have been cured of my golden love.

The problem is they're so over bred and so many buy them and assume they'll mature into nice dogs so they put in minimal work.

I know a few who dock dive, none are highly competitive though.
