Weimaraner

Originally bred as a gundog to handle big game like deer and bear, the Weimaraner, or “Silver Ghost,” was a highly sought-after dog breed in their native Germany. Today, these elegant but demanding dogs can still be found out on the hunting grounds. However, they can also make fine family friends if they get enough exercise. Although they’re purebred dogs, you may find Weimaraners in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If this is the breed for you, opt to adopt if possible! Weimaraners can make excellent companions, but due to their hunting heritage, they have a lot of energy and high prey drive. Novice owners and apartment dwellers should beware, as this dog needs consistent training and plenty of activity. That said, if you’re prepared to meet the breed’s needs, you’ll be rewarded with a devoted and affectionate addition to your family. DogTime recommends this big, spacious crate to give your big Weimaraner a place to rest and relax. You should also pick up this dog fetch toy to help burn off your pup’s high energy!
