Character
The ideal Weimardoodle is muscular, athletic, and hardy. They possess a well-built appearance and intelligent expression.

Does your Weimardoodle 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
Affectionate, happy, and loving, the Weimardoodle is cheerful and pleasant. They are also brave and sensitive. They are not recommended for homes with small children due to their large size. Weimardoodle's do well with dogs they have been raised with but are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom and loneliness will lead to destructive behavior. The Weimardoodle is wary of strangers and will quickly alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Weimardoodle requires frequent brushing to remove loose and dead hair or professional clipping. Bathing should be done when necessary. The ears should be regularly cleaned to prevent infection. They may be prone to such health issues as PRA, bloat, hip dysplasia, and Von Willebrand's Disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Weimardoodle may be short, smooth, and fine; curly; or a combination.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are a must. The Weimardoodle may be willful. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training sessions should be short, varied, and done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. 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 Weimardoodle 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 Weimardoodle is not recommended for apartment living. They do best in a home with a large securely fenced yard or a rural setting where there is ample room to roam, run, and play. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Weimardoodle Questions

We have a cat and we are wanting to adopt a Weimardoodle (if we can find one). Is this a good idea? We also have a 6 yr. old rescue female Golden Retriever.

Answer:
If the Weimardoodle has been exposed and socialized to cats, then there should be no problem. If you find a Weimardoodle puppy, then the pup can be raised with your cat with no issue as well.
