    Every one I have ever known has been bonkers - but then so have the Wiszla's and people seem to work them OK......I went the easy route - Ridgeback!

    I used to work a bitch weimaraner (gun dog) Totally useless until she was about 3 1/2 to 4 years old then settled down to be a good gun dog, i know as said above that most are a bit how should i say mental, but not all are like this, and bitches are generally cannier than dogs, dont know how good a deer dog they would make.

    Read somewhere that they are one of the breeds that became a cosmetic accessory, so most haqve been bred for show or pets and over the years have lost the good hunting bloodlines, although as Mauser243 said there are some still being used.

    I'll stick with my GWP's

    Weimaraners were ruined by the show crowd, but if you get one from a working line you should do well. I have a Viszla, and made a point of getting one from a working line- even at 10 months old he is showing promise, but the HPR's seem to mature a bit slower than other gundog breeds from what I've seen.

    About 20 or so years ago, a route clearance in NI:
    (To cut a long story short) on the clearance the AES dog (Ammunition and Explosives Sniffer) was a weimeraner. A wall that it walked past was packed with ANFO.
    The handler smelt the ANFO before the dog did.
    I've thought that breed to be as thick as mince ever since.
