Hi! If Weimaraners are new to you, grab a cup of coffee and getchoself comfortable (because this may take awhile). Then start by taking a look at what Weimaraners are all about. Can you see yourself living with one?! Are you comfortable providing structure, routine, and giving firm commands? Will you make a solid commitment to obedience training your Weimaraner? Do you know about crate training and realize that Weimaraners must be crate trained?
Interview a few Weimaraner breeders who are local to your area. Ask them what it’s like to live with their dogs; their experiences might be different than mine. Be sure to ask them some technical questions, too, like these. If you get a chance, go meet with them and their dogs.
This is Mango. When she was a puppy, we met with a prospective family at a local gastropub and spent an entire afternoon with them to tell them all about ourselves. We’re happy to meet you, too!
If you decide after your research that a Weimaraner isn’t for you, please consider a few other breeds that might fit your lifestyle a little bit better.
