General Information On Weimaraners

The Weimaraner, favored at the court of Weimar, also looks to the brackes and schweiss-hunds of Germany for his ancestry. Pointers, a little heavier, a little slower than those used to develop the Shorthair, contributed to his genealogy. Although a dog of Weimaraner type appeared in a Van Dyke painting of the early 1600s, the breed was closer to hound type at that time, and was used for tracking and hunting large game such as bear, wolves and big cats. As wing shooting began to displace hunting of the diminishing big game, the Weimaraner was crossed with "huenerhunden" to secure more bird dog characteristics.

The Weimaraner is a true versatile gun dog, still carrying more of the ancestral hound stamp than many of his German cousins. The large, stiff, flat ear is very similar to the type seen on the German schweisshunds. He is a tough and able hunter, carrying out all of the desirable "after-the-shot" jobs so important to the European hunter. Breeding of the gray dog was kept close to the vest in Germany for many years by a very strict breed club. Although quality was high, there was never a large number of the breed, even in its homeland. Only a few were brought to the USA prior to the War but, in the 1940s, interest grew both in America and in other European countries. Unfortunately, the Weim´s introduction in the US was accompanied by much hoopla and media hype about his natural all-around abilities. The promoters failed to mention the rigorous training necessary to develop the finished German utility dog. Many gullible new owners were disappointed that the "Gray Ghost" wasn´t a wonder dog who came pre-trained! Fortunately,, his modern fanciers are following a more prudent path of hunting, showing, field trialing and obedience training their dogs creating a showcase for the dog-owning public to see.

Weimaraners are fine companions and hunting dogs and have accomplished much in the way of obedience and tracking titles as well as a good number of duals. They are resilient enough to be trained in schutzhund protection work. The longhaired variety is well known and accepted in Europe, although it constitutes a disqualification in the AKC standard. Governed by a recessive gene, the longhairs still, legitimately, pop up now and then in American litters. Although they are prohibited from registration, the longhairs still make fine hunting dogs or obedience prospects. Several Americans have imported registered German Longhaired Weimaraners into the USA in an attempt to have the variety recognized. Although the shorthaired variety has the tail docked to about half the original length, the long coats often are left un-docked, more in the venue of the setter.

27/09/2017 Thank you so much for your prompt and helpful reply to my request for fabric samples. I ordered some of your seat pads a few years ago and they are as good as when I first had them. I have now changed the kitchen and really need to be sure of the colour of the cushions before proceeding with another order. Marilyn, Stonesfield
