Bhulisa German Shorthairs
GSPs bred for top performance in South African conditions –
“If you chase perfection, you often catch excellence” ~ William Fowble
German Shorthairs and wingshooting are our passions and are the driving force behind our goals and vision: to produce outstanding GSPs that are capable of world class performances in all of Southern Africa’s diverse wingshooting and hunting environments, from the Cape to the Border to the Bushveld.
For over 20 years, we have been breeding German Shorthaired Pointers with certain traits in mind. At the top of our list is the Complete GSP – a canine athlete that possesses superior game-finding ability, natural ability, versatility, endurance and temperment, yet that also has the good looks of the traditional breed type. Ease of training and development are critical to success, and although these are working dogs they should be a joy to own and fit happily into family life.
Not content with a legacy of mediocrity, we demanded top field performance, and in order to succeed we initiated a breeding and importation programme in 1995 that we continue to follow to the present day, pioneering the use of imported frozen semen and sourcing superior imports. These outstanding bloodlines have consistently produced what we set out to achieve – exciting, versatile gundogs that excel in the field.

We carefully selected top bloodlines from America that not only excelled in the highly competitive US Field Trial environment, but that also have proven versatility or a strong component of recent German breeding. Our imports all come from Dual and National Champion lines, and the frozen semen sires we imported from are themselves well proven sires and either Dual Champions (Field and Show Champion), Field Champions or National Field Champions.
The record shows that we have succeeded in our goals! Over the years we have selectively bred many fine hunting dogs, along the way producing HPR Field Trial Dogs of the Year and many dogs that have been in the top 5 year-end standings, numerous field trial stake winners, and recently South Africa’s first Dual Champion – a Field Trial Champion and Show Champion. Although we breed for perfomance, we have also had the honour of producing numerous bench champions and 3 Best in Show winners. None of this happened by accident!
