Activities for the Weimaraner
The companion Weimaraner can find itself filling many different roles. Select one of the links attached to this page, and learn more about the choices. You will also meet a few of the OwyheeStar Weims and see how they enhance their owner's lives. Above Jamie (along with Reggie and Daizy) get ready for a sprint. If you live in and around Boise, you might run into this Weim-loving family any number of places--including at the dock. They could be dock-diving, and just swimming. Jamie is an all-around extreme athlete.
Many Weims never see this kind of action, and they do fine. They do require some exercise, and a lot of attention. A good balance is healthy for them. It is of course important to keep fit, and not to let them get over weight. Pat Hastings (a long-time dog expert) cites being over weight as affecting your best friend's longevity. Five pounds could potentially shorten his or her life a year or longer. So, some activity is good.
