Weimaraner fanciers who want a personal gundog should select their puppy from breeding stock with field experienceparents that are successful hunters or have a pedigree with titles that prove the ancestors merit in the field. Weims are not big-running dogs who range far afield from their hunting partners. Most are tractable, easy-handling dogs of moderate range, considered to be good buddy-type hunting dogs who hunt close.

Weimaraners belong to the HPR group of dog breeds, gundogs that hunt, point and retrieve, which makes the breed a versatile, all-around gundog. The close working relationship between the Weimaraner and the hunter creates a dependent and protective aura in the dog,
Training methods, however, must be firm but gentle, for despite his stubborn streak, he is also very sensitive. Harsh treatment will make him surly and uncooperative at home and in the field.
Weimaraner owners will tell you that their dogs are worth the effort. These are intelligent and affectionate dogs who will reward your efforts with unconditional love and devotion.

I've had 5 weims sence I was 15 and now Iam 47 everyone differnt but demanding they are loveing and demanding its up to you if its good or bad if you spend the time there great if you dont you will spend the time fixing what ever they have messed up.... garbage, takeing stuff out of cubbards, opening car doors because you havent taken them for a ride lately and so on. ether way they will get attention! Its easyer to take them to the beach for a walk then to clean up if they get mad. Dont get one if u dont want to spend the time.

This is article is SO the truth. My Weim is the BEST dog anyone could ask for but she requires attention, exercise and stong willed "pack" leaders. She always looks to please us and she loves to snuggle. She can be very strong willed when she wants but she knows who is boss.

This is a great article for anyone who is contemplating getting a Weim to read first-- it's good to know what is expected BEFORE you bring your new pet home. If you can say "I can't" or "no way" to any of these qualities-- do everyone a favor and find a different breed.
