As a dog of distinction, the Weimaraner has established itself as one of the most popular pets for home and for show. The breed originally comes from Germany, where a long line of its ancestors spent countless hours roaming the forests with their masters. Today, the Weimaraner breed is one of the most respected dog breeds both because of looks and because of temperament.
Weimaraner puppies are not like most puppies that you will deal with. They require lots of exercise and energy, but reward their owners with play time and a loving nature that canâ€™t be replicated by many other breeds. As such, only those dog owners who are willing to make a commitment to the Weimaraner breed and its energy should consider owning this type of dog.
Raising Weimaraner puppies requires a measure of patience and a stern hand. The Weimaraner breed is very strong willed and because of that, the dogs need a strong leader to keep them in line. As many owners have found out, if you do not make the Weimaraner play by your rules, he will make you play by his rules. For owners that do take a strong leadership position, Weimaraner puppies are a joy to deal with. They are highly intelligent, which makes them extremely easy to train in both simple tasks, as well as more sophisticated tasks like those undertaken by hunters.
The Weimaraner breed requires constant attention. If you are looking for a dog that will simply mind its own business, then perhaps a different breed is your preference. Weimaraner puppies show their owners from an early age that they intend to be an active part of the family. This means that they want to go on trips, walks, and in your car to the grocery store. Weimaraner puppies become confused when they arenâ€™t included and from that confusion, they are prone to nasty bouts with separation anxiety. Many owners have come home to find that their Weim has taken it upon himself to re-decorate the house.
All in all, the Weimaraner breed is one that can offer rewarding companionship to owners that are willing to offer adequate care. As an extremely healthy breed of dog that can grow to be up to 85 pounds, the Weimaraner is a house dog that is unlike just about any other. After you own one for a while, you will easily see why people consider these dogs to be a great addition to the family.
