These good looking silver-coloured four-legged athletes have a distinctive tendency to be very alert, which makes them great hunting dogs. This alertness and noise sensitivity can make city life stressful for them, especially if not given the outlet of running and chasing.
If Weimaraners are not used as hunting dogs, they will need more than just ball throwing at the park. This breed requires lots of exercise and entertainment and they just love chasing.
Weimaraners prefer to have one master to please and protect. But they will tolerate the rest of the family and kids if they need to. They are stubborn and strong-willed and it is good to establish clear boundaries and rules from the outset.
They don't require much grooming - only their cute floppy ears need some care so they don't get infected. They have steel blue eyes as puppies, which turn brown in adulthood.
