Temperament
The German Wirehaired Pointer is a dog that loves the companionship of humans, and has plenty of love, affection, and devotion to give to the right owner, but this is not a dog for those that do not have the time to commit to a pet. These dogs make good family pets, and are well balanced in temperament. Intelligent, eager, and willing, these dogs have plenty of energy and therefore need a good deal of exercise and plenty of space in which to release their energy. The German Wirehaired Pointer loves to play, and is determined and outgoing, yet steady and sensible. These dogs can be very strong willed and independent, and are therefore best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership.

The German Wirehaired Pointer gets along well with children, particularly when raised with them, and when well socialized will get along okay with other pets, although they may be aggressive with other dogs. When it comes to strangers, some German Wirehaired Pointers may be friendly whereas others may be wary and reserved depending on the personality of the individual dog. These dogs do have a protective streak, and this means that he will make a good watchdog. The German Wirehaired Pointer is a quick learner and an intelligent creature, but his hard headedness can sometime make training a struggle.
