The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Reno
The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Reno is a non profit club that is one of over 60 chapter clubs governed by the parent club, the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America. The Reno chapter was founded in 1978 and became a licensed club in fall of 1979 with first AKC Field Trial held at the Red Rock Grounds north of Reno.

The organization is dedicated to the welfare of the German Shorthaired Pointer breed and to promoting the versatility of the breed by sponsoring numerous events designed to highlight the shorthair's natural qualities. Events include field trials, hunt tests, obedience trials and specialty shows. 

In addition, we promote events to further the health and well-being of the shorthair as well as to educate the public to responsible dog ownership. Events include AKC judging seminars, handling classes, hunting seminars, snake avoidance classes and education and help for rescue dogs.

Our diverse membership includes those involved in field trials, dog shows, obedience trials, tracking, breeding, therapy dogs and those who just love their dogs as soul mates and family companions.

The German Shorthaired Pointer is indeed a rare find. Wrapped up in one package is a staunchly pointing bird dog, a keen-nosed trailer, a natural retriever, an intelligent family and companion dog. He was bred to hunt both fur and foul and is especially admired for his temperament and trainability. The typical Shorthair is outgoing, but not aggressive, eager to please and is a athlete with lots of natural exuberance.

We welcome anyone interested in promoting the German Shorthaired Pointer.
