Old Danish Pointing Dog

Breed history
The Old Danish Pointing Dog corresponds to a reasonably old breed originating from the Glenstrup region, not far from the current capital of Denmark, Copenhagen. From the beginning of the 18th century, a resident named Morten Bak began a work of crossbreeding and selection over eight generations, combining in particular contributions from Gypsy dogs and local farm dogs. This is how Bak’s Dog was born. From the latter, the Old Danish Pointing Dog breed developed to lead to the one we know today, benefiting in passing from contributions from the Dog of Saint-Hubert.

Used for hare and fox tracks, the Old Danish Pointing Dog has become popular in its country but remains relatively rare and unknown outside its borders. The Danish Kennel Club recognized the breed standard in 1962. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) followed suit 7 years later, on April 2, 1969.
