The famed "gray ghost" of the dog world, the Weimaraner is a robust, proud hunting dog of German origin. As a family dog, the Weimaraner is protective and affectionate; as a sporting dog, he is multi-talented and highly trainable; and as a show dog, he is aristocratic and eye-catching. The "gray ghost" has fascinated dog lovers for centuries and continues to be a distinctive companion animal, revered for both his friendly disposition and his natural aptitude as a watchdog. This book provides the much-needed factual information about Weimaraners and their ancestry, character and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, training and preventative health care. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup’s arrival, housebreaking and preventing puppy problems.
In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text written by an experienced breeder and fancier, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Weim from puppyhood to the senior years.
