The Weimaraner originates from Germany. It has a large build and was bred in the early 19th century originally for hunting. The earliest breeds of Weimaraner are associated with Royalty, they were used by royalty for large game expeditions. The game that was hunted by the Weimaraner includes deer, boar, and bear. After a while, large game hunting started declining, this, in turn, necessitated the switch to hunting small game like foxes, rabbits, and fowls. An all-purpose dog, the Weimaraner was admired as a gun dog with versatile abilities. Discover more about our Weimaraner puppies for sale below!
The Weimaraner is a dog breed that originates from Germany. It is a 19th-century gun dog linked to the Leithound ancestry. Two theories postulate that they are descendants of the Chien-Gris bloodline or the St. Hubert Hound linked to the Bloodhound.
The Weimaraner is a hunting dog bursting with high levels of energy. It has a high instinct for hunting prey, it can endure tough conditions and it has a lot of stamina. Tolerance levels with cats are minimal, it seldom switches to hunter-prey mode irrespective of the time it has bonded with a cat. It’s not ideal to leave a Weimaraner and a cat in the same spot all alone. Small prey that wanders into the garden is in for a chase because it’s in the DNA of a Weimaraner to track and hunt them down unless they’re unbothered by their presence.
The Weimaraner is predominantly a house dog. Backyard life or kennel life is a no-no for Weimaraner. Apartment life suits them pretty well. As with most dogs, a large fenced backyard is suitable for them to perform physical activities. On the flip side, the Weimaraner is a great landscaper, once he is done ridding your backyard of bugs, mice, and moles I’m sure you’ll be needing the services of a pro-grade landscaper, and not the average run of the mill service provided by your own “friendly neighborhood Weimaraner.”
The Weimaraner is a big dog that requires lots of exercise. It requires a couple of hours of daily exercise, this will keep your home environment from suffering from a free for all chewing spree, recreational barks, and vintage “Indiana Jones” styled digging in your backyard.
Owning a Weimaraner feels like striking gold in the grooming Olympics. The short hair texture of its coat makes dirt fall off easily after a spar in the mud. Brushing the coat weekly with a bristle brush should keep the coat neat and tidy. Weimaraners are shedders, but the brushing process will take off loose hair from their coats. Goodbye hairy furniture and clothes! Use Chamois to wipe down their silvery coats of you want them all shiny. Ensure that you bathe the Weimaraner regularly, they love rolling around in the mud, this will help remove any uncharacteristic smell.
