  Weimaraners are very active, playful and cheerful. They are devoted to their owners and family, very affectionate and need constant communication. This dog will try to lie at the feet of its beloved owner and follow him anywhere. When alone, a dog can become very bored and begin to spoil things out of boredom, bark and try to run away.

  Representatives of this breed are valued as companions for people with an active lifestyle, as well as hunters.
They are alert but not aggressive towards strangers. Sometimes they are used to protect territories and houses. Thanks to their sensitive hearing and vigilance, they quickly warn strangers of their approach. Although they usually only bark, they have a strong protective instinct, and if their owners are in danger, the dog will fearlessly rush to their defense.

  They are affectionate and patient with children. They are not aggressive and do not bite children. They love to play and often get along with teenagers. This is more of a friend, partner and protector, rather than a nanny. It's best not to leave this large dog alone with children.

  The Weimar is a hunting dog. She is friendly towards her relatives and does not get involved in conflicts. However, they perceive other domestic animals as prey. If a Weimaraner has lived with cats since childhood, it will be tolerant of them. However, it will hunt other pets.
The Weimar Hound is an intelligent and obedient dog. He is attentive, smart, has a good memory and loves to learn new things. However, they can be stubborn, willful and easily dominated. Therefore, it is suitable only for experienced, strong-willed owners. To subdue this dog, the owner must gain authority from it.

  When training a Weimaraner, you need to be firm, patient and consistent. It is recommended to teach the puppy the rules of behavior.
When training, it is not recommended to use verbal abuse, yelling or physical punishment. This approach will not restore the dog’s trust and will not make it obedient. Breed-typical temperament traits must be taken into account. They can get distracted at any moment and can chase cats and birds. Therefore, it is recommended to conduct classes in a quiet place.

  If a dog is purchased as a hunting dog, then from the age of six months special training is required. In this case, they should be allowed to make their own decisions. This will allow them to hunt better. Typically, dogs of this breed have innate and versatile hunting skills, but it is better to consult a kinesiologist. Dogs can be taught to follow blood trails, lift birds with their wings, not be afraid to shoot, and find and bring prey.
