About Weimaraner

Weimaraners are a hunting breed that originated in Germany. This specific breed hasn’t been around for long, only really being established sometime in the 19th century. 

They were used by nobles and bred specifically to be the ideal hunting dog. They are intelligent and amazing at hiding their scent, have high endurance, and speed and agility on their side. 

In fact, they are so smart, they are considered the dog with the human brain. When ranked, they are considered to be the 21st smartest dog. 

Though their silver color is what makes them stand out, it is thought that the color came about by accident, as the color is attached to genes that give the dog some of their desired traits.

These dogs were so popular for a long time that they were exclusive. Only members of the specific Weimaraner Club could adopt puppies, and the club was very secretive and hidden. Additionally, only 1500 Weimaraners were allowed to be registered at a time. 

Due to the secret club, the dogs didn’t make it to the United States until 1920 or so, and then the dog was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1942. 

About Dobermans

Dobermans, or Doberman Pinschers, are another loved breed, though not to the level that Weimaraners are. They are a fairly new breed as well, only being about 150 years old. They are bred from a variety of different dog breeds including the German Shorthaired Pointer, Rottweiler, Great Dane, Black and Tan Terrier, and Weimaraner. Like the Weimaraner, they originated in Germany. 

They are one of the dogs most commonly associated with the docking of the ears and tail. Since they were originally bred to be serious guard dogs, the ears and tails were considered to be a weak point for the dogs, as they were areas they could be injured or held onto. Instead, they were cut off at a young age so this never happened.

While they are still used as guard dogs, they also do well with almost any other job, including police dogs, therapy dogs, search and rescue, service dogs, and sports. They were also used during WWII and are considered to be war heroes. 

While Weimaraners are considered to be smart, they have nothing on Dobermans. Doberman Pinschers are considered to be the fifth smartest of all dog breeds. 

About Weimaraner Doberman Mix

Weimermans are what you get when you breed Doberman Pinschers with Weimaraners. Since Dobermans were originally an offspring of Weimaraners along with other dogs, they are already fairly similar. They have similar coat types, and personalities. 

While the Weimarman is a fairly new breed, they have a somewhat stable personality. This is due to the similarities between the parents. However, since it is a designer breed, they do still have a lot of variation that isn’t consistent even in a single litter. 

Are Weimarmans Easy to Train?

Weimarmans can be easy to train. They are smart and loyal, which makes them eager to please. However, sometimes they are also too smart and can be a little stubborn. You have to make sure to only use positive reinforcement and stay consistent, or you risk them becoming difficult and not listening. 

But they can pick up almost any command that you give them. 

Are Weimarmans Aggressive?

Dobermans are known to be aggressive and are still on many banned dog lists. This may make you wonder if their mixed offspring are also aggressive. 

First, it is important to note that while some dog breeds are inclined to be more aggressive than others, that does not mean they are all aggressive. Dobermans are trained to be guard dogs. This means that they are naturally aggressive to new situations and people. They need to be trained on when to react and how to listen to commands. 

The same is true of their mixed offspring. They can be aggressive as they are inclined to protect their family. However, with proper training and care, they can easily be great dogs that are loving, kind, and open. 

What Are the Grooming Requirements for Weimarmans?

Weimermans need a fair amount of grooming, despite having smooth and short coats. They need brushing at least once a week. These dogs are also known to get ear infections, so they need their ears cleaned on a fairly regular basis. 

On top of that, they don’t need much more than normal, just the occasional brushing and bathing about once a month. Too much bathing can also lead to dry skin, so be careful not to bathe them much more than once a month. 

Is the Weimarman Accepted by the AKC?

Mixed breeds are often not accepted by the American Kennel Club until they are stable breeds. This means that the relatively new Weimermans are not likely to come up as a registered breed with the AKC anytime soon. 

Conclusion

Weimarmans are a mix of two beautiful and intelligent breeds. They need a lot of training and exercise but can be great companions for anyone deciding to put in the work. 

If you have experience with either of the parent breeds or similar dogs, you will be more than ready for what these adorable puppies have in store for you.
