Overview
The Weimaraner is a centuries old breed from Germany. They are pointers and retrievers that possess many talents. The Weimaraner is utilized in various capacities such as police work, search and rescue, and tracking. This breed is athletic and moderately large.
Character
The Weimaraner is a versatile breed that has both the intellect and energy to accomplish almost anything. They are friendly, alert, and willing to please. The Weimaraner is muscular yet graceful in motion. They are generally gentle and protective companions.
Temperament
The Weimaraner is happy and cheerful, highly intelligent and loving. They can be very willful and opinionated. This breed exhibits a truly unique personality. They are passionate and reliable. The Weimaraner prefers to live inside as a member of the family. They require companionship and attention and do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. This breed gets along well with other dogs but not cats. They are not recommended for very young children or the elderly as they could easily knock them down. The Weimaraner is brave and loyal.
Care
The Weimaraner's smooth, short coat is easy to care for. Brushing should be done with a firm bristle brush. They should only be bathed when absolutely necessary. They do well with occasional dry shampooing. They should have their feet and mouth inspected for damage after exercise or work sessions. The Weimaraner is prone to bloating, so small meals two times a day are best. They may suffer from hip dysplasia but are generally healthy.
Coat
The Weimaraner has a fine, short, sleek gray coat. The color ranges from a mouse gray to a silver gray. The distinctive color led to this breed being nicknamed the Silver Ghost or Gray Ghost. The Weimaraner's coat color is a rarity among dog breeds.
Training
The Weimaraner is full of energy. They are eager to learn and please and are motivated by rewards such as treats or praise. This breed does not respond to harsh discipline and once mistrustful will avoid any and all further attempts of training. The Weimaraner excels at obedience, agility, hunting and showing.
Activity
The Weimaraner requires strenuous exercise and stimulation. They love to play ball, romp, hike, and hunt. They must have room to roam and be given many opportunities to release their energy. Therefore, a large yard is preferred and is best for them. They do not kennel well and are not a breed for owners who lead sedentary lifestyles. The Weimaraner must be given sufficient exercise to prevent them from becoming bored, barking excessively, or being destructive.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Weimaraner puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

What and how is the best way to house break a Weimaraner and how many times of day should they eat?

1 Comment

Using a positive reinforcement based training method is the fastest and easiest way to house-train your dog. Using the two hour method, meaning when you are at home you have the dog attached to you on a leash and have a timer set to go off every 2 hours. Take your puppy out and when they use the bathroom, praise and give them a treat. If you are out of the house, then crate your puppy so your pup can not have an accident while you are away. The Weimaraner breed should be fed twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.

What is best for my weim puppy? After much thought and researching my husband and I decided to get a weim puppy. We worked opposite shifts and so somebody was always home with him and he got plenty of exercise. A month ago my work eliminated the shift I was working and now my husband and I have the same schedules. Our puppy who is now six months old is in his kennel all day. The reduced activity is definitely showing as he is chewing a lot more, and acting out some. He also refuses to go outside to exercise when it is raining. We live in northern WA so it is going to be raining a lot come Fall. We really love him and don't want to rehome him, but we are concerned with our work schedules he isn't going to get enough exercise, especially if he refuses to go outside if it is raining when we get home. Any suggestions? We are desperate for a solution that is best for him. Thank you!

You don't have to re-home your pup. I would suggest getting in contact with a local dog walker to have him exercised for an hour or two during the day. As well as looking into Doggy Day Care's for your pup to go too a couple times a week. As for his refusal of going out when it rains, contact your local positive reinforcement trainer for behavioral training.

The puppies will either take after the sire or dam more. In either case, they will be high energy dogs that need a lot of mental and physical stimulation.

Don't want an inside dog, is Weimaraner a good choice for me? A friend has a weimaraner that she wants to give away and I would love to have her but I don't want an inside dog. I could provide a nice dog house and lots of property to run on. Would this be a good home for the weimaraner?

No. The Weimaraner is not an outside dog. NO dog should ever be an only outside dog. A dog is a part of your family and should be allowed inside. Do not get a dog if you don't want them inside. Get a cat.

Yes the Weimaraner will be fine outside. They are a hunting dog.

No. Weimaraners do NOT belong outside. They need to be in constant contact with their owners (by their side, in their lap, next to them in bed, etc.) Leaving them outside, in their own will destroy the dogs mentality. Plus Weimaraners have short thin hair that is not suitable to long periods in the cold. - I am an experienced Weimaraner owner that has owned them for over 24 years and bred them.

I totally agree with the last comments. I have had Weimaraners for 20 years. They CANNOT, SHOULD NOT BE OUTSIDE ALONE. They are family members, used to interact with owners constantly. They follow their owners all the times, very obedient, love to please their owners, love to play all the times, do not like to be alone. They like to be the center of attention. Can not be yelled at or treated roughly, they get depressed and stop functioning, you can say no softly and point with your finger and they listen. Extremely obedient and intelligent. If you spend enough time with your dog you can just point and they will obey. Both my dogs follow lots of instructions in English, Spanish and finger directions, they are extremely smart, they quickly learn your reactions and act accordingly.

The Weimaraner can have it's tail docked at birth, but unless the dog is going to be used in hunting, then no. The Weimaraner will have a long tail.

Very sweet, not destructive, very loving, great energy level, a couch potato at night, etc. Not your typical Weim. We are looking to rescue a second Weim, partly to keep her company, but also to hopefully learn her temperment, etc. Does anyone know if introducing a young male or young female to an 11 year old female would be equally stressful or would one gender be favored over the other? We want to do what is best for our 11 year old Wiem and make this a positive experience and not a stressful one for her.

She has too many dogs and now two are fighting. I have had Tiger for 3 weeks and he now has diarrhea. I feed him twice a day and walk him for 30 min in the evening. He seems happy now and I'm just loving him. I feed him rice with cornmeal and liver with a little kibble. I feed him twice a day. I'm concerned I may be giving him too much food but his is big. I asked his previous owner but it was their staff that cooked and fed him so they are not sure how much he was getting. He is awesome and we are bonding. Can't believe anyone would not want him he is so well behaved. Please help me I don't really trust Vet's. I live in Panama Thank you

Loves the company of all my family. He receives the right amount of exrecise and spends a lot of times with us. He's great in his crate when we're out. He has been very quick to take on basic commnads of sit, heel, stay , wait ,down and stays with us when we're out walking. However over the last 3 weeks he increasingly starts jumping up and really biting my hands mnd arms. Ignoring is sofar not working very well. It is also very hard to ignore as he is really hurting me at those moments. How can I tackle this one?

YES! You are EXHAUSTING your Weimaraner and pushing his skeletal system too HARD! 12 weeks is much too young to be walking 2 miles! You should not consider walking a pup that distance until it is pushing a YEAR! He is a BABY! If you continue to push him like this at this tender age you will work on destroying his hips!

A two mile walk takes app. thirty minutes on average from start to finish. A twelve week old should be able to walk for thirty minutes; maybe at a slower pace. Please keep in mind that your legs are longer than his. So, pace yourself to him and enjoy your walks...

Sounds like seperation anxiety. I have 2 4 yr old weims both of them rescue..You need to go back to basic training and teach him and reward him for good behavior...start as simple as going out the door for a few second then minutes etc...and reward him with treats for not barking and correct him when he does...weims are extrememly stubborn but also love love love their humans and i would guess hes rather put out that your not taking him with your other dog...they are pack animals where you go they go. Why are you not all going together to the river as a pack?

We didn't raise ours bowl but got a feeding ball so she has to push it around her bowl to eat her food. This slows her down and helps prevent the gas and bloating.
