Great Weimar Breed Maintenance
Grooming for this crossbreed is relatively simple due to their short, simple coat. Due to the Weimaraner heritage, their coat is generally both water and dirt resistant, and both dogs tend to have very little doggy odor so bathing is only required on an occasional basis. The Great Weimar tends to shed heavily throughout the year and requires frequent brushing in order to remove dead hair and add shine and lustrousness to the coat. The long, hanging ears of this hybrid may also be prone to infections, both internal and external, and should be checked and cleaned on a regular basis.
Great Weimars often suffer from von Willebrand's disease, hip dysplasia, and other potentially serious health conditions. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs.
