Vajmarski ptičar, također poznat kao "Sivi Duh",
Je rijetka pasmina, srednje veličine, lijepih proporcija i mišićav.
Vajmarac je talentiran u mnogim podrućjima, a to su: lov, rad na tragu, aportiranje, markiranje, obrana, spasilacki rad i agility. Po prirodi vrlo inteligentna pasmina, Vajmarski ptičar brzo uči, ima veliku želju da ugađa vlasniku, te je poslusan. Ovaj veseo i prijateljski pas, pun ljubavi, odanosti i vjernosti idealan je clan obitelji ukoliko dobije pažnju i pravilan odgoj i obuku koje zasluzuje.Obavezno pročitajte ovo pre nego što donesete konačnu odluku o nabavci Vajmarca:
Da li je Vajmarski ptičar pas za Vas?
Standard opisuje temperament vajmarskog pticara kao prijateljskog, neustrasivog, pozornog i poslusnog psa, no to je samo polovina njegove osobnosti. Vajmarac je i asertivan, srčan, odvažan, odan ali i tvrdoglav. On će vrlo brzo preuzeti ulogu vođe čopora, ako mu se ukaže prilika za to. Kućni odgoj može biti problematičan, jer su skloni destruktivnom ponašanju.
Kao sve ostale velike lovačke pasmine, vajmarski ptičar zahtjeva puno kretanja i aktivnosti. Dvorište u kojem zivi mora biti ograđeno kako ne bi odlutao u potrazi za divljači. Budući da je lovačka pasmina, potencijalno je opasan za ptice i male sisavce. Za razliku od ostalih lovačkih pasa, vajmarski ptičar je kućni pas i stoga ne podnasa život u kućici za psa.
Ovo je pasmina koja zahtijeva trening poslušnosti, kako bi se moglo kontrolirati njegovu burnu (bučnu i naprasitu) narav. Vlasnicima se odmah u startu nabavke šteneta preporuča box (metalni ili plastični). Tako ce štene brze i lakše naučiti biti čisto u kući, a i namjestaj ce ostati zaštićen od oštrih zubića vašeg steneta dok ste odsutni.
Puppy classes or control exercises at home are essential for the Weimaraner the moment he enters the family. He must be taught all members of the family are to be obeyed. Training methods must be gentle and firm, for harsh treatment will sour his attitude.1. Weimaraners are very energetic animals...
they are bred to hunt all day with their master.
Changing this behavior changes the essential Weim. If you can not deal with this behavior, you should look at other breeds less rambunctious!2. Weims are not soft mouthed like a Golden Retriever or Irish Setter.
They are still the game hunter and some Weims have a low tolerance for small fur bearing animals including cats and small dogs. Changing this behavior again changes the basic temperament of the dog.3. Weims can bark and if you are away from them too much
and they are left to themselves, Weimaraners are like any other lonely dog, they will bark incessantly and develop bad habits or try escaping their surroundings.4. Although Weimaraners are hunting dogs, they do not like living outdoors.
They require your attention. They are the true, loyal, hunting companions in every respect, needing your friendship. Chaining a Weim outside will not work!
5. Inspite of the folklore and myth surrounding the breed, the Weimaraner is not a wonder dog.
Given the opportunity, he will still steal the pot roast off the dining room table when no one is looking!
This may seem like a lot of work, but a good owner/dog relationship could last around fifteen years. Longer than some marriages! The time and effort put into finding a dog that suits your needs and personality, whether it a Weimaraner or some other breed, will provide a rewarding experience for both of you over the life of the doghttp://www.weimaraners.be/v1/node/271

An Interpretation of the Breed Standard
Over the years, the breed standard has been revised by the Kennel Club, and with each revision go a few of the descriptive phrases or words which might perhaps have given a fuller picture of the Weimaraner. The breed standard as illustrated here falls short of what we expect to find in the perfect Weimaraner.Body:
One area of contention is in the proportions of the body. The Weimaraner should be longer in back than other HPR breeds, notably the GSP. A realistic measure could be drawn from the front of the chest to the root of the tail, which would then equal the height from the ground to the top of the withers.Breed Type:
This is the most difficult thing to define. Probably it would be agreed that it is made up of three prime factors - head, colour and body proportions. If these three factors are not present in the correct shape, size and colour, then we have not got a Weimaraner, but just another sort of dog.Colour:
Colour is fundamental in this breed. The breed standard is quite clear that the colour should be preferably silver grey, with shades of mouse or roe grey being permitted. There is no doubt that the dog was originally selectively bred to isolate the distinctive silver grey coat colour and that it is this, above all else, that distinguishes it from the other HPR breeds - the first and primary point of difference.
We all see colours differently, but preferably silver grey conjures up the colour of old silver coins. Roe or mouse grey cover a wide spectrum of grey colours. The hide of a roe deer, if examined carefully whilst in winter coat, will show the basal hair to be grey in colour where it has not been exposed to the weather, unlike the summer coat which is bright chestnut red, and we assume that when the colour was introduced into the first German standards, it was the winter coat to which they referred, although it is perhaps a pity this was not made clear. Mouse grey, again, could be a problem to identify as there are at least 18 different species of mice! However, the three commonest are the wood mouse, on which the basal portion of the fur is dark slate, the harvest mouse which is tawny orange when adult but duller in the young and usually described as resembling the house mouse, and the house mouse itself which is generally dusky brownish grey, fading into grey on the sides and belly. Colour matching the house mouse with a Weimaraner usually results in a fairly close match, but the closest would seem to be the basal fur of the roe deer. The Standard gives the impression that the shades of grey always blend into a lighter shade on head and ears, but this is not always so.
The small white mark allowable on the chest can also be a bone of contention. The only question here is how small is "small" and this could perhaps be described as matchbox size small and a full hand too large? Whichever the size, it is a basic part of Weimaraner colour and should not be discriminated against as this course of action frequently results in exceedingly dark colours being produced.http://www.weimaraner-association.org.uk/standard.php
The Weimaraner Breed Standard
A Breed Standard is the guideline which describes the ideal characteristics, temperament and appearance of a breed and ensures that the breed is fit for function. Absolute soundness is essential. Breeders and judges should at all times be careful to avoid obvious conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed. From time to time certain conditions or exaggerations may be considered to have the potential to affect dogs in some breeds adversely, and judges and breeders are requested to refer to the Kennel Club website for details of any such current issues. If a feature or quality is desirable it should only be present in the right measure.General Appearance:
