Since Weimaraners were bred for hunting, this would be an obvious way for Weimaraner owners to spend time with their pet, while the dog gets to use his well-regarded tracking skills. However, even if you prefer not to hunt, the Weimaraner’s breeding makes him a wonderful outdoor companion, especially as a running partner. And, for more unorthodox activities, William Wegman’s famous photographs of Weimaraners in human dress and occupations offer another option, which caters to the dog’s qualities of loyalty and desire for human affection. And while Weimaraners are sturdy companions with an ability to spend hours tracking and hunting outdoors, they prefer to live indoors, which probably make subjecting them to various poses and costumes for photographs easier if done at night. However, their desire to live indoors with their owner does not negate their rambunctious nature. In fact their energetic disposition demands early training to curb their playful nature and natural strength from accidentally knocking over children or elderly.
