Ankherwood German Shorthaired Pointers is based the beautiful countryside of South West England, promoting the true dual purpose nature of this beautiful breed.


We attend many shows in both the UK & Europe, as well as working events such as Field Trials and Working Tests. 

I initially set this website up to share images and news of the dogs, however as time as gone on I have added various bits of information which I hope others might find useful.
