Weimaraner Hunting Dogs

Weimaraner Hunting Dogs for Large and Small Game

Weimaraner hunting dogs are good companions and make great family dogs, in addition to being skillful small and large game hunters. They have natural inbred instincts for hunting large game, can be easily taught to hunt small game, and they will love and protect your family members.

Weimaraners need to be part of your household.  Unlike some hunting dog breeds, they will not thrive if they are stuck outside in a pen. Weimaraners are very sensitive to being away from you, and they are noted for their tendency to develop separation anxiety. They need to be an integral part of their “pack”, which happens to be your family.

If you are looking for a dog for small game, Weinheimers work well for fox hunting or rabbit hunting and they are great bird hunting dogs, as well.
