A Weimaraner is a good choice of pet if you are an athletic, sports minded, or outdoor type of individual. The Weimaraner is a sporting dog that is very energetic, and it can be quite difficult to handle if you do not know how to discipline it. If you can cope with its boundless energy, you will have an affectionate and loyal companion in a Weimaraner.
To make sure that you get a well-bred Weimaraner, you need to find the right breeder. If you are planning to get your Weimaraner from a local breeder, you should check and verify if the breeder is legitimate. When you visit the breeder to look at the puppies, make sure that the kennel facilities are clean and well maintained. If you see that the facilities are poorly maintained, then you should think twice about getting your Weimaraner from there. It's vital that you make sure that the breeder is taking good care of the puppies and providing a healthy environment for them, especially during their first few weeks.
If you are satisfied with the breeder, you can start talking to the breeder about the dogs. It is very important that you let the breeder know what activities you are planning to pursue with your dog. Do you intend to use your Weimaraner for hunting or do you plan to get it as a pet? There may be other reasons why you are getting a Weimaraner and it is important that you tell your breeder about it. The breeder should be very knowledgeable about Weimaraners and he or she will be able to answer all your questions about this breed. Different dogs have different personalities even if they belong to the same breed. If you are using your Weimaraner for hunting, you should look for an energetic and aggressive pup. One with a milder nature is more suitable for a pet. The breeder will be able to recommend the right puppy if you let him or her know about your purposes of getting a Weimaraner.
If you are planning to get a Weimaraner for competition, it is important that you know what to look for in a puppy. You should be well-researched about the breed standards required in competitions and you need to study the puppies properly to determine which one has the potential to be a show dog. If you are in doubt, the breeder will be able to give you valuable tips to help you make the right decision.
When choosing a Weimaraner, you should also study the pedigree of the dog and ask questions about the relatives. Checking on the ancestors' traits and activities will help you determine the potential of the puppy. If the parents or grandparents of the Weimaraner puppy have titles attached to their names, then it's a good indication of a good breed.
