Your Weimaraner is a high energy, sporting dog that loves people but can be difficult to train. They have a strong prey drive, and they are not for the faint of heart!
Weimaraners need exercise and lots of it, so leash training your Weimaraner to allow you to provide that exercise is going to be important. The catch is, these high-energy dogs are motivated to chase anything that moves: cats, joggers, bikes, other dogs. Not all of the these passersby will appreciate being chased! You will need to train your Weimaraner to walk on his leash in control, with slack, so as to avoid unpleasant incidents with passersby. Also, you don't want a sore arm from being pulled, or to damage your dog's neck, airway, or spine by constantly having tension on his collar.
Once trained to walk on a leash, your Weimaraner will be a great walking companion who is very devoted and lots of fun to exercise. 'Hope you can keep up!
Basic behaviour he's really sweet but he loves to jump and run around I want him to be able to he offlead we have a massive yard but the fence is really small
Hello, the really important thing to keep in mind is that Loki has to understand that he stays in the yard and cannot leave it. It is possible, no matter the fence height. However, with a small fence, I would never leave Loki unattended in the yard. You have a few things to work on: The Leash Transition Method https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-vizsla-off-leash. A solid recall is essential: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-whippet-to-recall Try the Reel in Method. And, you will have to work on boundaries: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-great-pyrenees-to-stay-in-yard The Full Package Method. You have much to read and practice. Train about 20 minutes per day. I will also reinforce the idea of obedience training. A dog who has bonded with their owner through obedience classes, and who understands commands that will keep them safe, like stay and down, will typically not cause problems with wanting to leave the yard when outside with their owners. Good luck!
