    This breed needs constant attention. They have a very sweet nature so I can see the potential if you have the land and time to accommodate them. We've have had ours for 5 years and he is still just as energetic as the day we brought him home. Even after being neutered. If they don't get the attention they crave, they can get very destructive and loud. We have lost 4 windows, a motorcycle seat, 2 gutters, a storm door, a flower/veg. garden, and that is just the major things. They can be a very good companion but, not for a demanding lifestyle.

    Weimaraners MUST have regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things. Otherwise they will become rambunctious and bored -- which they usually express by barking and massive destructive chewing. Bored Weimaraners are famous for chewing through drywall, ripping the stuffing out of sofas, and turning your yard into a moonscape of giant craters.

    We have a weimaraner and she is the most affectionate and attentive dog I have ever had, but they do need to have a lot of companionship and I recommend a second dog to keep it company, but I have no complaints on this breed, she was very easy to train.

    I presently have a Weimaraner, and it is one of the best dogs I have ever had. My last dog was a Golden Lab, and I have noticed big differences. The lab was far more independent, but not as intelligent. The lab had less energy, the Weimaraner was more attentive to the things around it. It was, simply enough, a better hunter. The Weimaraner is more powerful, more graceful and all in all a great dog, but my lab was simply the greatest dog a person could ever wish to have. If you spend time with the Weimaraner, it can be a great dog. If you have time to walk it, give it attention and train it well, it is one of the best breeds out there. If you dont have that time, a lab, or a similar dog, would be the appropriate animal to get. The breed needs attention, and it does need a lot of time to drain its energy, but most of all, a lot of attention. It the proper time is not given to the dog, it can become overly excited, and become a breed with a bad reputation. From what I heard a... Read more

    Weimaraners are very beautiful dogs that are very energetic and fun loving. They are okey with children if properly trained and socialized. This bree is an all time favorite.

    I currently have 3 Weimaraners--one beautiful AKC show dog and two rescues. These dogs are absolutely the best--easy to take care of, very affectionate and loyal, wonderfully stunning in the looks department, highly intelligent--they learn so quickly, you would swear they understand English. These dogs are not yappers or shedders, which is very nice. Weimaraners LOVE to play outdoors and have loads of energy--these dogs are not for the faint of heart (or the low-in-energy). If you have time, energy and love to spare, consider a Weim (or 3)!

    Best dog you could find. Great with Kids - part of the family. Just a bit bull headed.

    These dogs are beautiful - I love their gray eyes and smooth, glossy coats. Just very visually appealing. From what I've seen and heard about them they seem like very nice dogs, quiet and well behaved. If you've ever seen "Best in Show," it's a funny mockumentary on dog shows. There's a crazy, high-strung couple (the wife is played by Parker Posey) who raise a Weimerarner and drive the thing to distress because of their anal retentive ways. You feel more sorry for the dog than anyone else!

    If I could pronounce "Weimaraner," I'd probably like them more.
