Weimaraner


Weimaraner The Weimaraner breed is very active and was once one of the prized possessions of Germany's nobility. Their appearance earned them the nickname of the Silver Ghosts. They are bred both for their hunting traits and striking appearance. They are best kept as housepets and close to humans. The Weimaraner's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, hunting dog The Weimaraner dog breed is a fast and powerful one. With proper training, Weimaraners can be housebroken. The primary requirement for this kind of dog is an active owner. Occasional exercises are not enough. Vigorous activities are required frequently. Weimaraner dogs are also easily excitable and require lots of training, which will require patience, to make them learn to respond to signals to settle down. Destructive behavior and hostility to other animals will be the results if they are left alone and not trained. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
