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.
