HPR Hunt Point Retrieve Beeds Versatile Gundogs


Of all bird dogs (as opposed to retrievers and spaniels), the versatile HPR (Hunt Point Retrieve) breeds are increasing in popularity, especially in mainland Europe and America. They may lack the edge of specialist breeds like labradors , English springer spaniels and Gordon setters in their respective specialist fields but, for the all-round sportsman looking for an all-round dog, they have certain attractions.


The most popular breeds are the German short-haired pointer, large munsterlander, Hungarian vizsla and weimaraner. Although the breeds are very different in appearance, they all reuire similar levels of care and training.





Other breeds that fall into the HPR category are the German wire-haired pointer, Italian spinone and the Korthalls griffon.
