Watch video: Dog Breed Video: Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer
This is a video about the dog breed Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer (RHP), from the www.naturallyhappydogs.com website.
Sue Hancock is the current Secretary of the Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer Club in the UK. She tells us what they are like to live with: their personalities, how much grooming they need, how much exercise they need (with a few words of warning), and how best to approach their training.
The Slovak was bred to be both a working and a companion dog. If new owners don't want to go hunting with their Slovak, Sue tells us what other sporting activities they might consider as this is a breed that likes to exercise both body and brain.
They are generally healthy and a very rare breed outside their native Slovakia. Sue tells us what the UK club are doing to ensure the breed stays healthy.
