Training Advice

~ Jan Magnuson has this to say–

I like Carol Lea Benjamin’s training books, I have not read them all but the ones I have I liked, they are trusty training manuals.  I like Dr. Sophia Yin’s website- she has passed, however they continue to maintain her website; I went to training with her in person, she was amazing.  Also, CanisMajor.com, Pam Young, and PerfectPaws.com.


These are not Weimar-specific, I recommend them to folks with all breeds.  Having owned the Weimar and getting info from Shela and Cliff, I am sure you can tailor the training info to our breed with the knowledge you already have.


Best Regards~  Jan

Breeder Comment

We believe everyone begins with good intentions–some get into trouble. There are several ways to allow a problem to start with this concrete-thinking Weimaraner. We won’t list those here–we often pass out a sheet that talks about avoiding the pitfalls to our prospective clients–but no matter how you decide to proceed with your training, it is essential to get the basics accomplished.

Everything that you achieve requires you develop a special relationship where the Weimaraner wants to please you. Finally, remember this is a journey–it is about what you can accomplish together — one step at a time building upon tiny successes and that underlying relationship.
