Maybe you are used to being used as a pillow; however, Kirby has his daddy wrapped in his arms.

Breeder’s Commentary

The Weimaraner has been called many things. Quite possibly it is often referred to as the human-dog more than anything. Beyond a list of descriptive names are the qualities to which those names can attribute their Nickname. There are too many to list. Before you consider this breed, you need to be aware that if they could potentially crawl under your skin in order to burrow a place next to your heart they would. 

The Weimaraner is not a throw in the yard kind of dog. That is a good way to have the police called for incessant barking. It can lead to having the siding removed. This dilemma in turn will require you to replace or repair the exterior. If you are thinking of a basement addition, the Weimaraner can assist you by digging a parking-size hole for your Jeep in fifteen minutes. Imagine what they can do if left unattended for hours. Of course, some Weims are not diggers, but if you let the habit start it make continue for the rest of their life. We guess you could rent them out as a trenching machine if you could find a way to control where they dig. They would take payment in hot dogs or chicken. Barking, digging, and patrolling the yard are preferred Weimaraner habits of choice. Not the ones you want to select per say, but the type that come naturally to the Weimaraner. Finally, when left along they may want to escape to find you because you left them behind. They can dig under the fence. They can climb it, and some Weims can clear it in a flat-pawed-style leap that would shock you. Where there is a will (or idea), they can come up with a plan. Never underestimate the Weimaraner.

PS: If you love it don’t leave it where the Weimaraner can chew it. They might leave it alone for what seems like forever. Something might trigger them (cause stress) and they may chew on your treasure to feel closer to you, and to relieve stress.

  1. We have one here in Ireland too. He is two years old and I’ve never met a dog before that just can’t get close enough to you! Great companion though, and so athletic as well. Good luck!
