The Large Munsterlander originated in German, and may be traced back to the early 19th century. Once recognised as the black & white versions of the Deutsch Langhaar - German Longhaired Pointer. Back then only the brown and white (German Longhaired Pointers) puppies were accepted, the black and white puppies of the litters were put down or given away to gamekeepers and farmers. The Farmers were not very interested in a dog's colour as long as they performed well when hunting. This the black & whites did with as much verve and dependability as their brown siblings. They were then recognised and named the Large Munsterlander.
Munsterlanders have only been in Australia since 1983.
Australia does not have any Small Munsterlanders (which is a different Breed) here as yet.
They are a multi purpose gundog which have a good nose and work well on land and in water. They are affectionate, trustworthy and easy to train. They make excellent family companions.

Grooming- require little in the way of grooming, a weekly comb and brush over will suffice. Their feathering on the ears, front and hind legs and tail will need the occasional tidying up. Excess hair between the pads on the feet should be trimmed when necessary. They are dogs who enjoy all types of weather so be warned, mud and dirt can be a problem!

Exercise- Munsterlanders are primarily field sports dogs but will adapt quite readily to family life as long as they are given plenty of exercise. They love water therefore care must be taken to ensure their safety when they are running loose. They make super companions for active people, being content either to work or play.
