A little about Weimaraner

The Weimaraner is an elegantly built dog, full of boundless energy. They love and need daily exercise, especially outdoor adventures. They can be headstrong and may chase smaller pets unless raised with them. Overall though, they make a fun loving companion for the right active household.



Being a particularly deep-chested dog, the Weimaraner is prone to Gastric Torsion (bloat). Less commonly they can experience congenital spinal defects (spinal dysraphism), Canine Hip Dysplasia, eye disorders (Entropian, Distichiasis, Progressive Retinal Atrophy), bleeding disorders (Haemophilia A, Von Willebrands Disease), Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy, Dwarfism, Hypothyroidism and some cardiac defects (Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia, Persistent Right Aortic Arch).
