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 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.

Can you dock a tail of a 10 month old weimaraner

Absolutely not! Tails can only be docked up through about 72 hours after being born.

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.

Do Weimaraner's have short or bobbed tails

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.

do weimaraners shed? I was told that Weimaraners do not shed much or at all...is this true? I have always loved the way they look and their personality traits sound like my kind of dog. I am looking for a large breed dog that does not shed and do not care for labradoodles or poodles. Thanks

No, there is no Miniature Weimaraner. If you want a dog like a Weimaraner, but smaller, I would suggest a Miniature Pincher.

I'm not sure about the breed in particular, but both of our Weims enjoy swimming in a pond in our backyard.
