Country of Origin, History of the breed
Weimaraners originally came
from the court of Weimar in Germany where
there was a breeding program to create a dog
with the best hunting dog characteristics
for large game such as deer, wolves and wildcats.
Over time, as large game became scarce in
the area, the breed was refined as a small
game pointer. The breed was originally tightly
controlled by the German breed club which
forced anyone wanting a Weim to become a member
and sign a contract to protect the breed.

Temperament of the Dog
Weimaraners are loyal and devoted
to their family. They want to be part of the family
and do not do well if left alone for long periods
of time. Weims are happy, loving and rambunctious.
Highly intelligent, Weims can also be opinionated
and willful, so they need a firm, experienced trainer
from the start.
Weimaraners are known to be reserved
with strangers and often aggressive towards other
dogs. They are very protective of their family and
home territory. Bred as a hunting dog for birds
and small furry animals, Weimaraners do not do well
with cats, birds, rodents or small dogs.
Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
Weimaraners are not suited to
living outdoors, and need to live inside and be
included as part of the family. They are a very
active dog and need lots of exercise and will do
best with a large fenced yard.
Are they suited to homes
Weimaraners may tolerate children
but are not recommended for young children because
of their energetic attitude on life. Young children
or older adults could be accidentally knocked down.
How Active is the Breed?
Weims are an active hunting breed.
They have great stamina, and need to be taken for
a long walk or jog daily. They also need lots of
opportunity to run free and will do best with a
large yard with a tall, secure fence.
How Much Exercise Does
the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?
Weimaraners are a very active
breed, needing daily walks / jogs and time to run
Short haired Weimaraners are easy
to keep in peak condition with an occasional brushing.
Dogs should have their mouth and feet inspected
after working or exercise.
Weimaraners can sometimes be very
uncomfortable with handling of their feet and will
need their nails trimmed on a regular basis. Make
sure that you handle their feet often as a young
pup to get them comfortable with this process.
Weimaraners are prone to bloat
and should not be fed prior to exercise, but after
the exercise session when they have had time to
cool down. Weims should be feed multiple small meals
daily. They are generally a hardy breed but a small
population of the breed has had hip dysplasia. Weimaraners
are also prone to too rapid growth and tumors.
