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.

Does your Weimaraner bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Weimaraner puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Should this dog breed be good living on a farm but still be a house dog?

1 Comment

The Weimaraner would do really well living in a rural area such as on a farm, but still be allowed to be indoors with the family. However, this breed is a hunting dog and they do follow their noses/ears. So even living on a farm, the dog should have a secured fenced in area to roam/play in. This breed also has a high prey drive, so loose farm stock like chickens, geese, ducks, and even cattle and horses can and will be chased for fun if the dog is not properly exercised/taught to leave the animals alone.

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

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 Weimaraner puppy? After much thought and researching my husband and I decided to get a Weimaraner puppy. We worked opposite shifts and so somebody was always home with him and he would get 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 Cares 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.
