The Weimardoodle is created by the crossing of two breeds: Weimaraner and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs". They are not as popular as many of the other crosses.
Character - Temperament
The ideal Weimardoodle is muscular, athletic, and hardy. They possess a well-built appearance and intelligent expression.
Affectionate, happy, and loving, the Weimardoodle is cheerful and pleasant. They are also brave and sensitive. They are not recommended for homes with small children due to their large size. Weimardoodle's do well with dogs they have been raised with but are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom and loneliness will lead to destructive behavior. The Weimardoodle is wary of strangers and will quickly alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care - Coat
Depending on coat type, the Weimardoodle requires frequent brushing to remove loose and dead hair or professional clipping. Bathing should be done when necessary. The ears should be regularly cleaned to prevent infection. They may be prone to such health issues as PRA, bloat, hip dysplasia, and Von Willebrand's Disease.
The coat of the Weimardoodle may be short, smooth, and fine; curly; or a combination.
Early socialization and obedience are a must. The Weimardoodle may be willful. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training sessions should be short, varied, and done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
The Weimardoodle is not recommended for apartment living. They do best in a home with a large securely fenced yard or a rural setting where there is ample room to roam, run, and play.
