How to Train a Weimaraner

Written by jemke1 on Monday, March 15, 2010 – 8:14 pm -

 

Striking looks, sleek, speedy, and strong…

These are the first impressions a Weimaraner usually gets.

The Weimaraner Vorstehhund, also dubbed as the “grey ghost”, is a product of German selective breeding. It was a breed favored by royalty by German royalty. They are strong gun dogs with great perseverance and courage. They will stop at nothing to please their hunting masters.

They are beautiful dogs with a regal stance that most people appreciate. Weimaraners are relatively large dogs with long muscular limbs. Their coats are short and hard but there are rare types with semi-long coats, and they usually come in silvery and gray colors.

Since they have short coats, grooming maintenance is very low but they can drool and bark excessively. Drooling problems may never be solved but with barking, training and extensive early socializing may minimize the unpleasant behavior.

Weimaraners are originally bred to become large game hunters. Animals like boars, deer, and even bears. But with the decline of large game popularity, they eventually adapted to small game hunting. Because of their original hunting inclinations, they are not intimidated with size and seem brave in all occasions.

They are very athletic and thrive in physical activities. Exercise is essential to Weimaraners. Lack of physical and mental stimulation will make them restless and may cause them to become disorderly inside the house. If often left alone, they will channel their energy to destructive behaviors like chewing furniture and footwear. It is also common for them to steal food from tables and counter tops. Bad habits like this need to be eradicated as quickly as possible.

They are affectionate and loving dogs and also very protective of their owners. They have great guarding instincts and they are likely to be very territorial. Weimaraners can be aloof and hostile to strangers. If they are not socialized extensively as puppies they tend to become very aggressive.

When dealing with Weimaraners, owners must be firm and take the role of the “pack leader”. Weimaraners can be very stubborn and willful. Therefore, owners must train them with effective positive reinforcement methods to counter these behavioral problems. Passive and meek owners will find it difficult to manage Weimaraners. Natural authority must be established over them.

Weimaraners desire companionship. They like to be with the family’s “pack”. They will feel awful if left for their own. Weimaraners are generally affable to children but their pure physicality and highly excitable nature can cause accidents, such as knocking children and elderly people down.

They are highly trainable and intelligent dogs. They must be trained extensively with positive reinforcement. Weimaraners like to be praised and rewarded with treats. Positive reinforcement is the best way to control and train them. Calm behavior training is also essential for these dogs. They will eventually mature, although slow, into a mild-mannered temperament.

Weimaraners are common to gastric torsion, a painful and fatal condition. To prevent this, Weimaraners feedings must be spread at least twice daily. But to be sure, because Weimaraners are seriously susceptible to this condition, have a vet’s contact number ready.

Doberman Pinscher

“The Doberman Pinscher (alternatively spelled Dobermann in many countries) or Doberman is a breed of domestic dog. Doberman Pinschers are among the most common of pet breeds, and the breed is well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog. Although once commonly used as guard dogs, watch dogs, or police dogs, this is less common today. In many countries, Doberman Pinschers are one of the most recognizable breeds, in part because of their actual roles in society, and in part because of media attention (see temperament). Careful breeding has improved the disposition of this breed, and the modern Doberman Pinscher is an energetic and lively breed ideally suited for companionship and family life.

History
———-

Doberman Pinschers were first bred in Germany around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann. After his death in 1894, the Germans named the breed Dobermann-pinscher in his honor, but a half century later dropped the pinscher on the grounds that this German word for terrier was no longer appropriate. The British did the same thing a few years later. Dobermann was a tax collector who frequently traveled through many bandit-infested areas, and needed a protection dog to guard him in any situation that might arise. He set out to breed a new type of dog that, in his opinion, would be the perfect combination of strength, loyalty, intelligence, and ferocity. (He also worked with dogs in his second job as local dog-impounder, giving him access to dogs for breeding.) Later, Otto Goeller and Philip Gruening continued to develop the breed to become the dog that is seen today.

The breed is believed to have been created from several different breeds of dogs that had the characteristics that Dobermann was looking for, including the Pinscher, the Beauceron, the Rottweiler, the Thuringian Shepherd Dog, the black Greyhound, the Great Dane, the Weimaraner, the German Shorthaired Pointer, the Manchester Terrier and the old German Shepherd Dog-now extinct. The exact ratios of mixing, and even the exact breeds that were used, remains uncertain to this day, although many experts believe that the Doberman Pinscher is a combination of at least four of these breeds. The single exception is the documented cross with the Greyhound. It is also widely believed that the old German Shepherd (now extinct)gene pool, was the single largest contributor to the Doberman breed. The book entiled, “The Dobermann Pinscher,” written by Philip Greunig (first printing in 1939), is considered the foremost study of the development of the breed, by the most ardent students of the breed. It describes the early development of the breed by Otto Goeller whose hand allowed the Doberman to become the dog we recognize today.”
