The Pudelpointer was bred to hunt in the cold and dense forests of Bavaria in southern Germany. The Pudelpointer traces its lineage back to an English pointer which belonged to Kaiser Frederick lll. The goal was to produce a gun breed that was adept at hunting, pointing and retrieving. It took over thirty years to develop this breed using a mix of poodles and pointers. While the Pudelpointer is a working breed, it also performs well as a show dog. Its dense and wiry coat allows it to traverse thick brush and frigid waters.

Historically, the Pudelpointer survived on a diet on hunting spoils and barn vermin. Easy to train, and lots of fun around water makes this breed an ideal family pet. The Pudelpointer is not very popular in the United States as its breeders feared registry with the American Kennel Club would encourage breeders to develop the Pudelpointer with more emphasis on form than function. Weighing in at up to 66 pounds and standing over two feet tall, the Pudelpointer has a lifespan of up to 14 years. A Pudelpointer club and breed standards were developed in the United States in 1956. Today the average Pudelpointer does not have to hunt much past the family kitchen for a fully prepared meal. Given the generally reduced activity level of the Pudelpointer today, calorie and portion control are key to preventing the breed from becoming overweight.
