An alert and friendly, energetic but protective breed.
Weimaraners are exuberant and energetic. They thrive on action and enjoy curling up with their family after a long day's activity. Their good nature makes them excellent family dogs, but their enthusiasm can make them clumsy enough to knock over or squash things more delicate than themselves.
Originally bred to track large game, then to hunt, point and retrieve.
Active, exuberant and playful, the Weimeraner develops close bonds with its owner. It can be stubborn.
Very high. Needs plenty of exercise, particularly when young.
Owners: attentive, tactile
Children: good, may be too boisterous for small children
Other Pets: good, but may chase or squash
Strangers: good if well socialised, can be territorial
Unfamiliar Dogs: friendly if well socialised
Energetic strong-willed owner who enjoys playing, training and being very active.
Lack of exercise can result in boisterousness, running away or destructiveness. May be
aggressive to other dogs unless properly socialised.
The Weimaraner's sleek coat is thin and they can suffer from the cold if left outside.
