Germany has always been a country rich in wildlife, and German dog breeds have earned a reputation as some of the best in the world. The Weimaraner originated in the 19th century in an effort to create the ideal and versatile dog that could hunt animals of all sizes, including deer and bears. This effort was sponsored by the Weimer court, and the breed was initially known as the Weimar Pointer.
Ideal for owners who want a large, active dog for hunting, hiking, and other outdoor activities, Weimaraners make excellent companions and are highly intelligent, but need activities to prevent destructive behaviors.
The Weimaraner is happy, affectionate, intelligent and cheerful. He is very good with children, but without proper exercise he will be very noisy and difficult to control. This breed learns quickly, but will get bored if training is the same over and over again. This breed needs experienced training from the puppy stage, with an owner who knows how to be the leader of a dog’s pack, or he can become stubborn and willful.
The Weimaraner is a large dog that was originally bred for hunting in the early 1800s. The first Weimaraners were used by royalty for hunting big game like wild boar, bears, and deer.
