 GWP University

You are invited to attend:
The 6th Annual GWP University 

  Mission Statement

The goal of German Wirehaired Pointer University (GWP U) is to provide continuing educational programs in all areas of GWP interest and in so doing, help carry forth the mission of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America. 
It is GWP U’s hope to preserve our breed’s past and present experiences and legacies and to educate future GWP fanciers in a manner that is on-going and available for years to come. As is true with our dogs, GWP U will be an on going and evolving educational experience, which we hope will grow and mature with time. We would like to thank Joy Brewster for her time and efforts in getting this project off the ground. 
As the years go by, our plans are to share educational materials and work hand in hand with our dedicated breeders for the betterment of our breed. The building and continued progression of the GWP U depends on the support, cooperation and input from everyone. Notwithstanding, pictures, information, suggestions and most of all attendance.  

  What Is GWP U

GWP U is a practical educational concept developed by the Basset Hound Club of America and is being adapted for German Wirehaired Pointers. The University is designed as an on-going school of learning in which courses on owning, breeding, competing and judging GWP’s are available year round. GWP U is dedicated to preserving the past and educating future breeders, owners, exhibitors and judges of the German Wirehaired Pointer. The concept of GWP U is similar to correspondence degree programs, where GWP breeders, owners, exhibitors and judges can take courses and complete them at their own pace at home. These at home materials will be available to you in the not so distant future. BHU was designed to be used as a model for parent clubs of all breeds of dogs. We would like to thank the originators of this concept for allowing other breeds to participate.
