The Weimaraner is a sleek, moderately large, athletic dog with beautiful lines. It comes in a short, fine, smooth gray coat or a rarer longhaired variety (FCI Group 7).

The eyes are amber, blue-gray or gray - with an intelligent expression, and the nose is gray. The ears are moderately long and pendant. The topline slopes gently downward from the withers. The forelegs should be straight with dewclaws removed. The tail is docked to 1? inches (4cm) when the dog is two days old. The limbs are long and muscular. The Weimaraner has webbed feet for swimming.

As a social dog, it does best when it can divide its time between indoors and out. Coat care is minimal: occasional brushing to remove dead hair.


The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to keep in peak condition. Brush with a firm bristle brush, and dry shampoo occasionally. Bathe in mild soap only when necessary. A rub over with a chamois will make the coat gleam. Inspect the feet and mouth for dama
