breed and many club members are active training

Weimaraner is a short coated dog. Its color ranges from light
silver-gray to dark gray. The eyes are blue to amber. The females
are usually between 23 and 25 inches tall at the shoulder and
weigh between 55 and 70 pounds. The males are larger at 25 to
27 inches at the shoulder and 65 to 85 pounds. This breed is used
for hunting pheasant, quail and other upland birds and waterfowl.
They are bred for intelligence and stamina, to be able to work
all day in the field. They love to work and play and have seemingly
endless energy. When not working, they are part of the family,
and like to be included in everything you do.
Although they excel at hunting, they are used for obedience, tracking,
show dogs, therapy dogs, drug detectors and as the favored companion.
The Weimaraner is a very versatile dog with the brains and energy
to do almost anything!
