Weimardoodles are more comfortable living in a rural setting rather than apartment-living.

The famed American Kennel Club does not recognize the Weimardoodle breed for the simple reason that it is a hybrid dog. The Weimardoodle is however recognized by associations like the Designer Dogs Kennel Club and the International Designer Canine Registry.

For a Weimardoodle to stay in shape, it must be given plenty of opportunities to exercise. This helps the dog stay happy and healthy.

A minimum of a 30-45 minute walk supplemented with playtime and running free in parks and gardens should suffice. A Weimardoodle being very intelligent needs a certain degree of mental stimulation as well. Playing fetch, swimming, activities that test agility, and challenging toys help in this regard.

It requires more exercise if it has to live in an apartment because houses with yards provide more room for it to move. Also, its dense fur naturally prefers a cooler climate.

Characteristics and health problems

The Weimardoodle temperament is playful and highly energetic. They need a ton of physical activity.

They may get jealous of children and other pets when their human parent shows more attention to them, but they interact well with everyone. They are alert to intruders and suspicious things. And because they are so enthusiastic, when left alone, they might feel separation anxiety and become a bit self-destructive.

The most common health issues associated with the Weimardoodle dog breed are hip dysplasia, glaucoma, cataracts, and hypothyroidism. It may also have to deal with problems like Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and retinal atrophy.

Weimaraners do not require a lot of grooming, Poodles do, and Weimardoodles do OK with a moderate amount of grooming. Being smaller dogs, Poodles are not as strong and fast as Weimaraners or Weimardoodles.

Also, Poodles and Weimaraners are pure breeds, so they are more readily available to be adopted as pets than Weimardoodles. Also, all three breeds of dogs are fast, with Weimaraners possibly having the fastest top speeds.
