By combining the drive and speed of the German Shorthaired Pointer with the more relaxed and playful demeanor of a Labrador Retriever, German Shorthaired Labs make versatile companions. Whether hunting, hiking or playing with the family, there are not many activities for German Shorthaired Labs they won't enjoy. Depending on your desire, you can train up your best bird or small game hunting partner or you can keep things more casual and have a best friend for walks in the park, days at the lake, and nights on the couch.
German Shorthaired Labs make fantastic companions for many outdoor sports and curling up on the couch after all the activity. If you're a hunter, you can easily hone your dog's natural instincts to find and track down birds. If long distance trail running is your passion, your pup will be there every stride (except when they are running back and forth smelling and enjoying nature). German Shorthaired Labs are excellent family dogs who love being with their owners no matter what the activity.
