Meet Brewster

Weimaraner, 2 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Brewster is...

They are affectionate, loyal, entertaining, work hard, play hard and relax the rest of the time. We have now owned thirteen Weimaraners, Brooklands Bruce ( Brewster is his name ) is number thirteen. We have nine buried in our garden leaving four in our home. Milly is eleven, Purdey is four, Mr. Gibbs is two and Brewster is fourteen months. Purdey and Mr. Gibbs compete at agility.

The biggest challenge with Brewster is...

They are demanding. They need a firm hand. As with all dogs the more you put in the more you get out. We couldn't be without them.

The most surprising thing about owning a Weimaraner is...

They are excellent to live with. Yes we have ups and downs. The fourteen month old, Brewster, is now beginning to challenge the older dogs which we are not standing for. My wife and I are heads of the pack and Brewster has to learn that. I think their worst trait is lead walking. They always pull. We have used chokers, Dogmatics, no pull harnesses and several other head collars, none work.

What I wish I’d known about Weimaraners is...

That they need a lot of work. They are easy to train but you have to put the effort in.

Did you know?

Often known as the Silver Ghost, the Weimaraner has, in his past, been used for a variety of hunting tasks and became an all-around gundog, although he was originally bred as a pointer. It is said that when hunting, this dog’s instinctive hunting method is to attack the prey’s genitals to bring it down. Interestingly the same instinct is seen in hyenas.
