I'm hoping to get a pup later this spring and have been doing a lot of research online & talking to owners & breeders to learn as much as possible about training, health, etc. Alot of my searches bring up this book "Weimaraner Savvy". Just curious who has read it and if you would recommend it? Thanks. Mike

The author is Jan Gould. I read it before I got Anubis and found it to be helpful as a first time Weim owner.

I'm sure there are alot of good training tips, but I was curious how many of them are general dog training tips and how many are actually specific to the breed which it is intended...?

I have the book. Purchased it when Britta came home last May.

While the book has some good points, it's not really a "weim-specific book" and Jan Gould isn't a weim owner (and there's nothing in the book you couldn't find elsewhere). I think there are better books out there for your $30 + printing costs (it's an ebook).

Looking back, I can tell you that of what I know about weims, 5% came from a friend who has a weim and book combined, and the other 95% came from this forum.

And for that, I HEART THIS FORUM!

One more thing: I think a good weim-specific book would have an entire chapter dedicated to "HOW TO PREVENT YOUR WEIM FROM COUNTER-SURFING." :lol:

Weim Savvy did not have such a chapter.

Totally agree. I've been browsing this board for a couple months and most of what I've learned about the health, training, and skills of these dogs has pretty much all come from this forum. Guess I'll put my $30 toward something else.

May I just say that I think it's wonderful that you're doing so much research prior to getting a pup. Weimaraners are awesome dogs but being educated and prepared goes a long way towards having a happy life with one.

Agreed! I wish I had done that much research myself...

Not that it changes anything. :D

Well I have owned dogs before and I know how wonderful a well trained dog is, but I also understand the time & patience it takes. I think the most important thing I've learned on this board is that there will be ups & downs through the training process. Even the best dogs with the most patient owners still have relapses and bad days. I'm also enjoying hearing everyone's stories of their ups & downs.

I bought it just the other day only to realize it is not a book but a downloadable file. I do not have internet at home and am now upset to find this email with a link that had expired... Other sites that offer online books say they are online, and some offer you to buy it on dvd version. I would like to offer input as to if it is a good book, but it appears to not be a book, here I have been watching my house mailbox for something that will never be delivered, and the site did not seem to mention this detail. Maybe I missed it but either way you would think they would make it well know that your mailing address is not to mail anything to. I don't use my email, at least not the one I gave them.
