Are You Ready for a Weimaraner ? -----> Take the quiz
Here are some questions to ask yourself before sharing your life with a Weimaraner
Why do you want a Weimaraner?
Is it for showing, hunting, for yourself or as a cherished companion for your family? If you don't want a dog that follows you into the bathroom then a Weimaraner is not for you!
How much time do you have to devote to a puppy?
A puppy requires a tremendous amount of early care, training and attention. The amount of time you spend training the puppy during the first year will give you a companion you can live with for the rest of your dog's life.
Do you have the time to bond with your dog by training, playing, exercising and grooming?
Weimaraners are a versatile breed with high energy. They thrive on being kept busy and challenged with training opportunities to develop their natural hunting and retrieving instincts. Obedience, tracking and agility are other activities they enjoy.
Do you have the physical facilities for a Weimaraner?
Is your yard securely fenced? Do you have a place in your home your dog can call his own--a crate, a bed--that is with the family? Where will your puppy/adult stay while you are at work?
How much exercise are you able to give a Weimaraner?
They require lots of room and free running in a secure area. They can become very creative and destructive landscapers if left unattended in your fenced yard for extended periods of time.
Can you afford a Weimaraner?
Aside from the initial purchase price, which can be substantial, there are ongoing expenses of high quality food, veterinary care, training, supplies, spaying/neutering, etc. The initial cost is just the beginning.
