Recommended Read

  • Your dog could be related to the first dog imported to South Africa
  • Your dog might be related to the first Field Trial Champion in SA
  • Your dog could be related to the Top dog of all times in SA
  • Your dog’s siblings could be a Field Trail Champion
  • You and your dog could be mentioned in a book

Must have!

I would strongly recommend you get a copy of THE GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER IN SA. There is much information and stories from the past 30 years. Don’t overlook the training tips! It is my humble opinion that every GSP owner should have a copy. As a coffee table book, it creates wonderful conversation and discussion.

A fantastic gift !!
