History

History

A truly exclusive breed, the Weimaraner was created by the Grand Duke Karl August of Weimar, Germany, as an all-purpose gun dog for the nobility. Perfected around 1810, the breed was a closely guarded treasure, with breeding and ownership strictly protected. The Weimaraner was recognized in Germany in 1896, and its breed club formed a year later. Ownership was restricted to club members. In the 1920s, American Howard Knight became a member of the club and brought a breeding pair to the U.S. The breed continued exclusive until the 1940s, when its skill as a gun dog brought it to the public’s eye. Modern Weimaraners continue to be excellent athletes with many top dogs having championships in both the show ring and the field.

Personality

Quick to learn, the Weimaraner is an energetic dog who can handle many situations. He is friendly, obedient and affectionate with his family. As an athlete, nothing makes him happier than lots of exercise and attention from his people. The Weimaraner makes a loving and enjoyable companion.
