We purchased this book shortly after we got our first Weimaraner puppy. It's full of great information about the breed. There is extensive health information in it as well. Not to mention it has some of the most beautiful Weimaraner pictures and is an enjoyable book to just flip through and look at, making it great for kids, too! The DVD that is included is nice, unfortunately not Weim specific, but a good training DVD nonetheless. It was great to sit down as a family and watch and get some pointers and tips outside of our puppy obedience class, and to just reinforce what we were learning. We kept it in the car and read it while we were out and also let the kids look at the pictures. Our copy is well loved.

Years later when we started breeding these amazing dogs, we knew that we wanted to send this book home with all of our puppies for their new families to enjoy. We have since purchased 18 more of these books and given them with our puppy packs and every family has really enjoyed them and commented about how much information is in them. Just some of the topics it covers:

- origins of the breed
- clipping nails
- brushing teeth
- grooming
- feeding
- socialization
- crate training
- potty training
- basic obedience
- vaccinations
- health issues
- spaying and neutering
- advanced training
- correcting problem behaviors
- bloat (potentially life threatening to a Weim)
- emergency care
- first aid kit
- dangerous household chemicals
- dangerous plants
- alternative therapies

We definitely recommend it to anyone who loves the breed, is getting a new Weim puppy, has an old Weim puppy (do Weims ever grow up?) or wants a comprehensive health and care manual on Weimaraners.

This book covers the basics on training, first aid, separation anxiety and more. Weimaraners are a unique breed and this book does a good job of explaining about these dogs. I checked this book out of my local library and decided I wanted my own copy so I ordered it from Amazon. The many typos and misspellings are annoying and the same pictures are used repeatedly throughout the book. The later is a shame since these dogs are so photogenic.
