About Munsterlander

Country of Origin, History of the breed

The Large Münsterländer evolved in Münster, Germany from its smaller cousin in the 1800's. Its excellent nose properly indicates the correlation to the Lower Saxon area; its similar conformation to the German Longhaired Pointer and Continental setters suggests that connection as well. Many insist that the Grosser Münster was once simply the black and white Longhaired Pointer.

Originally a Small Münsterländer was bred to work with noble families' falconers before guns were used in bird and small game hunting By the 1800s the breed had fallen into obscurity. Small Munsterlanders were little known, kept by a few families on farms around Munster. At the end of the 19th century, a concerted effort was made to re-establish the breed from the remaining lines in the Munster region.

Temperament of the Breed

Both the Large and Small Münsterländer are courageous, loyal, friendly, cheerful, intelligent and obedient breeds. They make wonderful house companion dogs. They are working dogs, are suitable for children, but not good guard dogs.

Large Münsterländer

The LMs grow very dependent on their owners and hate being left alone. This dog will adapt to any terrain and every type of hunting. It is resistant to fatigue and bad weather. Particularly appreciated for the sureness of its point and the precision with which it retrieves, specially from water.

It loves water and has shown itself to be a dedicated enemy of birds of prey. When it spots a bird or rabbit it will usually freeze in its motion.Its head will point towards the prey and its whole body shifts slightly forward; one of the front feet will often be off the ground. The rapid motion freeze will prevent the prey from being alarmed and shows the hunter where the prey is hiding. Described by the German word "Vorsteh" (hund).

Small Münsterländer

The SMs have a very strong drive to follow their keen sense of smell. They love swimming, too. The remain a keenly focused, even driven, hunter-pointer-retriever when in the field. They are not suited to life in a kennel because of their sociable nature and need to interact with people.

SMs will pick an individual person to bond most closely with, typically the one who hunts with the dog, but will revel in the company of the rest of the family, too. When raised with other pets in the household, such as cats, they can coexist happily though they may enjoy a game of chase and point. Unfamiliar small animals outdoors will not be tolerated in the same way.

Better suited to outdoor or indoor lifestyle?

The Large Münsterländer is not recommended for apartment life. They are moderately active indoors and will do best with at least a large yard. The Münsterländer wants to play (with a bone or toy), specially when it is outdoors. They might attack smaller animals.

Activity Level

How active is the breed?

As with all their hunting relatives, they require sufficient exercise. They need to be taken on a daily, brisk walk, run or jog. In addition, engaged in active play, it will usually be tired in 20 minutes. Two to three 20-30 minute sessions a day will make this dog happy. They make great companions for active, outdoor people.

The Small Münsterländer requires more than an hour's exercise everyday and gentle and patient training, which provides excellent results. They are also strong-willed and an owner who is inconsistent or indecisive might find that his dog is hard to control. Both voice and hand signals are used, and an SM looks back at the hunter for silent signals at intervals when on hold or pointing.

They respond well to training and pick up obedience trainings fast. Münsterländers can easily learn to come and sit on command in the first six months of life.



The bitch of this species has a shorter coat and will not need much grooming. A brushing every 3-4 days should be enough. The dog has a longer coat and needs a good brushing every second day. This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder especially in the spring. Regular grooming will keep the shedding down.


Health Problems

Some lines are prone to hip dysplasia although it is not common in this breed.
