The Full Weimaraner Description

The Weimaraner is a big, bold dog. They are smart and their busy minds thrive on activity. They are strong and determined, needing time, space, and attention. If you want the challenges of keeping ahead of the fearless "gray ghost", and your daily activities can include your dog, you may be suited to the Weimaraner. He loves kids and is used to being a member of a family.

Did you know?

The Weimaraner dates back to the early 19th century in Germany.
The Weimaraner has seen more actual competition of various types in the United States than it did in all its decades in Germany.

So you want to own a Weimaraner?

Weimaraners need lots of exercise; they do not make great city apartment dwellers unless their exercise needs can be adhered to.
Weimaraners are very dominant dogs and should be put through obedience training. You must be able to control your Weimaraner or he will control you.
Weimaraners do make a great family dog; they love children and are good guardians and watch dogs
