Sporting Breed

Cole and Macy from Ember Weimaraners

The Weimaraner is a family dog that enjoys being part of the family – every part.  Don’t leave it outside or out of the family circle.  Needs firm training and socializing in early puppyhood, and consistent handling thereafter.  A very energetic dog who needs a regular exercise routine.  OK for the apartment if properly exercised, but probably better off if given a fenced yard in which to run and play.  Good with children but the dog’s energy may overcome a younger child.  Should be OK with other canines, but be careful about non-canine pets.  Their smooth coat is easily maintained.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet stores and Internet sellers may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
