Weimaraner's need an exceptional amount of exercise. These dogs are VERY active. A leash walk or dog park is not enough for a Weimaraner. We aren't fond of dog parks to begin with, so it's not something we promote. These dogs require off leash RUNS daily, minimum of an hour. (granted the dog is trusted off leash) After you fulfill the exercise needs of this type of dog, they are rather laid back and enjoy sitting with you. If leash walks, etc. are offered they will not be enough and could potentially lead to behaviour problems.
Our Weimaraners have been pasted down through generations known for their upland hunting skills, our dogs have prey drive and endurance for covering land searching for game. We encourage our puppy owners to take up the hobby because these dogs are bred for hunting upland game. Not only hunting these dogs are capable of, but many other dog sporting venues. proven hunting dogs
All dogs require mental stimulation, let alone a Weimaraner, which involve exercising the brain. Food puzzles, stuffed kongs, training are all ways to provide mental stimulation for a dog. Off leash runs are also a great avenue because the dog gets to explore and evaluate their surroundings.
An incredible amount of mental stimulation comes from hunting your Weimaraner for upland or waterfowl game.
A medium-sized grey dog with light eyes, he should present a picture of a great driving power, stamina, alertness and balance. Above all, the dog should indicate ability to work hard in the field.
The dog should display a temperament that is keen, fearless, friendly, protective and obedient. The breed standard requires tail docking and we remove the dew claws. This is in the best interest of the dog, preventing the potential of future injury. The breed standard is available for further reading in our "link" tab.
These dogs are highly intelligent, and trainable. With consistency, and accuracy the success rate is impeccable. Knowledge of training is an asset when it comes to working with these dogs. These dogs are meant for experienced dog owners. We are always here for tips, questions, etc. for our puppy parents.
Weimaraner's usually bond with one person in the household. The person who provides schedule, discipline, food, exercise, etc. This is natural instinct for a dog, because they are pack animals and they have one leader. Weimaraner's are great with children, and other pets. The same with any other dog, it is how you raise the dog, and what positive or negative experiences the dog has had in the past; what determines how the dog reacts to its current surroundings.
Weimaraners have a short coat, that don't shed a ton. There is some hair that comes off their coat naturally. Coat care consists of a brushing and a damp cloth once a week. Bathing is required once a month approximately.
Teeth brushing and nail clipping is recommended among all dogs, which is why we encourage our puppy parents to do the same often.
