Temperament and Behavior

A Weimaraner wants to be your friend and wants you to respect it – harsh handling will create problems.


What especially characterizes the Weimaraner amongst the continental pointing dogs, is the very close bond to its people – it wants to be an integral part of the family. The Weimaraner is active and incredibly fond of working. It is teachable and eager to learn, but also stubborn and can appear standoffish toward strangers. The Weimaraner is extremely expressive, talks with the eyes and can even smile.

A Weimaraner is an intelligent dog, that does not suffer fools gladly. It needs leadership from you - not dominance!
