4 stars

Shedding Level

3 stars

Moderate Shedding: Brush it with a rubber curry brush at least once a week. The brush removes dead hairs that would otherwise end up on your floor, furniture, and clothing. Weimaraners shed, so the more you brush, the less hair you’ll have flying around. And bathe your Weimaraner only when he’s dirty, which shouldn’t be very often.

Stranger Friendly

4 stars


5 stars

Easy Training: Behavioral training is strongly recommended for the Weimaraner; some suffer from separation anxiety or aggressive behavior (as a natural hunter, all Weimaraners will maintain some degree of aggression). The Weimaraner is eager to please its handler and learns quickly. A confident approach is required as this breed sometimes tries to dominate. Weimaraners excel in a variety of dog sports such as agility competitions.

The Weimaraner is built to hunt with great speed and endurance and combines grace, stamina, raciness and an alert demeanor. It has find aristocratic features, with a kind expression. The gait is smooth and effortless. The short sleek coat is noted for its unique gray color.

The Weimaraner is bold and rambunctious, sometimes too much so for small children. It loves to run and hunt and can become frustrated and destructive if kept penned up. It can be stubborn or headstrong. It functions best with an active owner who enjoys outdoor activities and wants a fun-loving companion.


The Weimaraner originated in the early 19th century in Germany, where it was conscientiously developed and bred to maintain its physical and mental characteristics, and jealously guarded. The ideal dog was one that possessed courage, speed, intelligence and a well-developed scenting ability. The breed was originally used for big game, but was later adapted to use as a bird dog; and was found to be a good pointer and retriever. The Weimaraner was first recognized by the AKC in 1943. Some of its talents include: hunting, tracking, retrieving, pointing, watchdog, guarding, police work, service for the disabled, search and rescue and agility.
