|Good With Children||
Not Good with Kids: In isolation, this dog breed might not be the best option for kids. However, to mitigate the risks, have the puppy grow up with kids and provide it with plenty of pleasant and relaxed experiences with them. This breed is also shy toward other pets and shy toward strangers.

These are powerful working dogs with great stamina. They need to be taken for a daily, long walk or jog. In addition, they need plenty of opportunities to run free. Do not exercise them after meals. It is best to feed a dog after a long walk, as soon as it cools down.
Easy Training: Behavioral training is strongly recommended for the Weimaraner; some suffer from separation anxiety or aggressive behavior (as a natural hunter, all Weimaraners will maintain some degree of aggression). The Weimaraner is eager to please its handler and learns quickly. A confident approach is required as this breed sometimes tries to dominate. Weimaraners excel in a variety of dog sports such as agility competitions.
Low Maintenance: Grooming is only necessary once in a while to maintain upkeep. No trimming or stripping needed.
Moderate Shedding: Brush it with a rubber curry brush at least once a week. The brush removes dead hairs that would otherwise end up on your floor, furniture, and clothing. Weimaraners shed, so the more you brush, the less hair you’ll have flying around. And bathe your Weimaraner only when he’s dirty, which shouldn’t be very often.
