    Willow, my 7 month old female is an absolute joy. When I first began researching the breed, I was a bit apprehensive about getting one because they are reported as being strong-willed and difficult, and prone to separation anxiety. However, she has not been that way at all. She practically housetrained herself in about 2 weeks. She is intelligent and easily learns commands. Willow is a people pleaser. She shares her home with 2 mini Dachshunds, and even that has not been a problem except Willow wants to play more than they do. Willow has been crate trained – the crate has become her security and her comfort zone. A large yard or a daily walk/run is a necessity for Weimaraners.

    My 6 year old male, Buddy, is the most wonderful dog you can imagine. I’m always surprised when I read in breed profiles that Weims are strong-willed and difficult. Buddy is the exact opposite. He’s playful, but docile and obedient at the same time. He’s intelligent and affectionate, and the most loyal dog I could ever hope for. Not to mention that he’s gorgeous. I recommend Weimaraners to anyone looking for the perfect dog.

    I have had two weimies, one when I was a child and the present one who is 10years old Dec. 1st. We are both Sagittarius. Silver was the dog of my childhood and Grey is my dog now. Both dogs were and are high strung. Grey is only happy when two inches away from me. He is charming, obstinate, willful and very smart. He will look through the pantry for Paul Neumann’s Peach Salsa and unscrews it with his paws. The only thing is he doesn’t screw the lid back on. Anyone thinking about getting this dog better be prepared for high maintenance dog. I love him dearly but would not get another.

    I have two males and they are the greatest dogs in the world. They are very intelligent and contrary to what I have read, they do not have to run to be happy. Dieter and Bodie are perfectly content to lay on the couch every single day till dinner. I do take them to a wildlife management area on Sundays so they can work on their pointing skills. This breed is a true joy but please remember that every dog is different. If you are considering on be sure you are prepared for a super smart super stubborn family member

    Bailey, my 2 yr.old female is the most loving dog I’ve ever owned. She is very strong willed. She is a part of the family in every way. She loves to travel and try new adventures. This dog is incredibly SMART. She understands a vocabulary of many words. Example-Dinner,bowl,water,pool,bed,pee,poop,park,outside,car,truck,trip,bad,good,stay,come,down,up,no,boat,(LINEBREAK)bad,good,treat,blanket,paper,door,peanut butter, etc.(LINEBREAK)She has a toy box(which she loves). I can tell her to get a toy by name and she brings that exact one back to me. The direct eye contact will melt you.

    What can I say about a Weimy, we had a Weim for 10yrs. He pasted away last year just 3 day shy of his 10th b-day from a brain tumor,. Tramatic-yes,Heart wrenching-absolutely! His name was apporpreatly Shadow and that is exactly what he was. My shadow, everywhere I went he wanted to be. And I being the dog crazy person I am glady took him everywhere. His day always started with a cuddle and then off to the "sitters" which was my sister’s house to hang w/his girls Zoey and Sadie. Then I would pick him up and we would head home to Daddy who would give him a good work over till dinner and then he would lay comfortably at our feet. He loved loved loved us and we him. It has been a very long year w/out him. Till we meet again ole friend-Daddy & Mommy 01/20/09

    We just got a weimaraner puppy. He is precious. He seems to be having some separation anxiety issues, as he cries when he is left by himself in a room, but I am sure he will outgrow that. He is so loving and playful. He loves being curled up next to somebody, and is so friendly towards everybody. I think we picked a great breed. (LINEBREAK)We had a bloodhound. He was only seven when he passed away eight years ago from cancer, and we still miss him terribly, but our new weimie has a lot of the same personality traits.
