One-family dogs that are reserved with strangers, they will make good watchdogs as well as good guard dogs. They require owners with a firm, no-nonsense approach who will take time to train and socialize them. Boundlessness of energy, tirelessness, self-driven and a remarkable sense of smell make Weimaraners great hunting dogs. Weimaraners have been known to hunt for as long as six hours at a stretch. When well trained, the Weimaraner is a confident and assertive dog who makes a wonderful companion. One thing most owners do not realize is that there are two varieties of Weimaraner coat, shorthaired and wirehaired. The wirehaired has fur 1 - 2 inches long and it is fringed like a setter's hair.
