Pros & Cons of a Weimaraner | Dog Breeds


I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “”Living with Dogs”” columnist for dogster.com. I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. The Weimaraner, or if we’re speaking German
the “”Veimaraner””, is a German breed who was bred or created to accompany aristocrats
on the hunt for large game. He’s a nobleman’s dog, and he kind of knows
it. He carries himself with great poise and dignity
and he really looks like a prince among dogs. This dog recently has gotten a lot of publicity,
thanks to the American artist William Wegman. He’s a dog artist, as most people know, and
his passion is photographing his own Weimaraners in various poses, kind of anthropomorphizing
them and making them look really human. They’re just cute pictures. Weimaraners, despite their very dignified
appearance, have a streak of clown in them. They love to play, they love to be hammy. This is something that Mr. Wegman really makes
use of in his work. I’ve seen him with his dogs and I’ve seen
him train the camera on his dogs. They just love to perform. I’ve never seen anything like it. Almost like poodles in the circus, they love
to please their owner. The Weimaraner, if you ask me, has the potential
to be the next Snoopy, to be this kind of dog that appears on your kids’ bed sheets,
your pillows and your home d√©cor. It’s a very cheerful image, a very noble looking
dog, yet also a very floppy, cute pout?

  • so i love how this video is supposed to be about weimaraners and yes your talking about them but why is this a video showing only various other breeds of dogs?? shouldnt it be about the dog you are talking about. i think they only showed the breed of dog once.

  • I Didnt learn a THING other than they originate from Germany. Oh and that this chick has a Major obsession with this dog artist guy.
    Howcast- can we not get a dog obsessed crazy lady to educate us on breeds?

  • i love my weimarner, although they do like to cry alot when there not around people. But this dog loves you with all its heart and cant stand being away from you for more than 5 minutes.

  • ugh, as usual, ppl that never had or probably even met a weimaraner talking about how they look and all this superficial junk…i have a weim, heres a quick bio, NOSEY as hell, if you leave anything scented out, they will A)find it and B) 90% chance of eating it, they have a deep intimidating bark and growl, usually when someones at the door, as an announcement. they love to run, all day any day, although they dont really like the rain, prissy cunts, but they love the snow for some reason…

  • Thumbs down for me. If you're going to talk about a certain breed, your video should feature the breed you're talking about. A bit informative, I'd say, but you need to work on your videography.

  • I hate people talking about breeds as if every dog will have the same traits … Just like humans there all different my Weim is nothing like what I have read to expect .. Neither is my friends and for argument sake my mother in laws employers Weim as well..

  • How is there about pros and cons?  all we find out is that Wegman's dogs love to perform.  I've had weims for the last 20 years (3 currently) and am involved with two separate weim rescues.  People buy weims because they look great and yes, they are beautiful in wegman's photos.  BUT the reality of weimaraners is that they are NOT for everyone and can be very different from other dog breeds.  Do your research, talk to breeders, read over rescue pages to find out about their personalities that are very complex and please do not listen to this woman who cant even be bothered to put weim pics in her video on weimaraners.

  • She ignored all the traits about the Weimaraner that come from breeding just as she would about her own dog breed that kills the most humans and other animals. Character traits have a funny way of coming out no matter how good a dog is raised and why we have nearly 500 humans dead in the past 3 decades from pit bulls. Many more disfigured for life. Pits are the only breed to scalp & dismember it's victims to death.

  • They are great dogs. I had one for 13 years. If you're looking for a dog to really be a part of your family. Then this might be a good dog for you. They do need exercise walks, park, swimming. But as long as you spend the majority of your time with them they are awesome loyal loving dogs.

  • you gave absolutely no pro or cons that are realistic. In case you were wondering why the dislikes are pouring in. if I turned this video into a college professor I'd get an F. I could say more but I'll let you get back to writing "books."

  • A couple things …
    1) It would have been nice if the video was related to the narration/dialog.
    2) It would have been nice if the video included Weimaraners.
    3) It would have been nice if the video had more details about the pros and cons of Weimaraners as the title suggest.
    4) I love Weims but gave this video a thumbs down for the above reasons. 🙁

  • I am totally confused. We saw videos of her own dogs which were not Weimaraners! Hey, that’s cool, but wasn't this supposed to be an informative piece on Weims???

  • If the book is like this video is anything like the relationship between the stated aim of this video and the disconnect with what is actually offered, it is a book I will definitely not bother with further I would not trust this person's dog expertise for any breed based on the total lack of useful Weimar information.
