 Weimaraner

Hi, I’m Rachael and i own a weimaraner named Zoe. She is 10 years old turning 11 june 2 and I was wondering if Weimaraners are supposed to run away frequently. Whenever our gate for her is open she tries to escape and our old dog didn’t do that. Thanks :)

Hey never noticed this thread until now.

Weimaraners are a type of hunting dog so giving half the chance she most likely will try and bolt off lol

I had a mixed breed dog (we never knew for sure what she was, as the grandparents were multiple breed mixes too), and we know she was some kind of terrier, probably mixed with a Cocker Spaniel, Labrador, and maybe a Greyhound or whippet, and all of those breeds are prey driven dogs, similar to a Weimeraner’s insticts. Peaches (my dog) would bolt the second you opened the door. Hours of mental stimulation and an hour long jog wouldn’t tire her out, even as she turned 12. She ran around til the day she died, probably similar to your dog. There are precautionary tactics you can take to try and keep her from bolting out and getting into trouble or getting hurt, but I wouldn’t expect that drive to go away. I would say just go with it and know you have a very free spirited dog
