Klugmaus Weimaraner Breeders

The Weimaraner - Beauty or Beast ???

As with any animal great consideration should be given as to the practicalities of owning a Weimaraner. He may look impressive with his striking silver grey coat and powerful athletic body as he covers the ground with long purposeful strides but behind the appealing facade a very clever astute animal lurks. Fearless, friendly, protective, obedient and alert are all commonly used adjectives when describing the Weimaraner.

BUT

The Weimaraner requires a lot of hard work, time and patience but the rewards of owning this breed can be high. They are first and foremost a gundog and can be trained for the gun but, they will excel at almost anything you try with them whether it be agility, working trials, flyball etc. Weimaraners require plenty of early socialisation as puppies as this breed is known to be a little sharp with other dogs. With people they tend to love you to death and are quite happy to sit on your knee for a cuddle if allowed (they forget they are large dogs when the mood takes them!)

. Weimaraners do tend to want to be with you all the time and can suffer with separation anxiety as our house will testify. Our friend Julie always liked Dalmatians, but when told they can be quite destructive, chose a Weimaraner as the ones she knew were wonderful. Very soon she was missing door frames etc. Julie quickly learnt how to solve that problem.

Weimaraners (luckily or unlucky for some) still have a very strong working instinct so generally they will not be content with a quick wander round the local park. They need exercise that will wear them out mentally as well as physically. Consideration must be seriously taken into account as to the amount of quality exercise you can provide your Weimaraner with each day.

The Weimaraner can be quite pushy and does need to be kept in check. Enrolling in a good obedience school can help, as can talking to your breeder about any problems you encounter.

Before buying a cute puppy with the most appealing blue eyes, please remember he grows up into a demanding dog and can drive you up the wall especially if you have never owned a dog before. But on the other hand he may be the best friend you have ever had, providing countless hours of fun and enjoyment for you and your family.
