The Weimaraner is the German Doppelganger of the Vizsla, and is a popular hunting dog and family companion. With a loving attitude, eagerness to learn, and a strong desire to please, the Weimaraner makes a great addition to the family or a hunting troop with proper obedience training and early socialization.
The Weimaraner is a newer breed than the ancient Vizsla and is often equipped with a more dominant personality. While the two look similar, they share little in common in terms of DNA. The two can often be identified through their eye color; the Vizsla will have eyes that match its coat, while the Weimaraner will likely have amber, grey, or blue-grey eyes.
Standing 23-27 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 55-85 pounds, the Weim is considered a medium-large hunting dog. Often seen in blue, black, or silver, authorities believe the breed was created from a mixture of the English Pointer, Great Dane, and a little bit of the less popular Huehnerhund for its distinct silver color. While originally bred to track and hunt large game like deer and wolves, noblemen in Germany pivoted the role of the Weimeraner to smaller game as the forests in Germany shrunk and large game became scarce.
A trait shared with the Vizsla is the Weimeraner's desire to be close to their people. These dogs have a strong desire to be part of a pack, and while not considered an aggressive breed, the Weim will defend those they love. Early training and socialization are encouraged to make sure the Weimeraner builds good habits and is friendly to all. With the right upbringing, they’re a loyal and affectionate companion who will shadow you all day long!
How dog-friendly is Wyoming?
Wyoming is an amazing state for pet-friendly travel destinations, though it has some room to grow for dog owners living in the state. Let’s break down some studies to understand why.
Two major studies rank all 50 states by their pet friendliness, analyzing factors like animal welfare laws, pet care and services, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
The first study, by an animal care group called Pawsafe, ranked Wyoming as the 44th most pet-friendly state. The second study, conducted by a consumer safety review site, ranked Wyoming 46th. In both studies, the major factor for this low ranking was Wyoming’s lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
