Its shiny coat attracts a lot of attention. The most common weimaraner is the short-haired one, but there is also a long-haired variation. Dogs of this breed have a very characteristic bluish coloration that almost resembles a silver tone. White spots are neither desired nor officially accepted, although they may occur in some isolated specimens. The longhaired weimaraner is not officially recognized in the United States and not so common among breeders.
Varied exercise and daily mental activities are recommended for the weimaraner. Versatile, they can run, swim and fetch objects with great enthusiasm and speed. They need dedicated tutors who can stay with them for at least an hour a day doing some kind of physical activity. Your drooping ears deserve attention, as they are an invitation to ear infections, parasites and other ear problems. Weekly cleaning and frequent inspection can go a long way in preventing the problem, but always remember to only use veterinary products for this.
