Thoughts? Cliffs? Similar to a Lab? Good with kids (2 year old)? Only been around one (remotely) and that's what kind the wife wants.

Ex-GF's parents used to breed them. Less friendly than a lab, and not the greatest around young kids. They can be good, but they're a bit hyper and energetic at times, and when they're working off excess energy they don't really care/notice if they knock the kid down. For the most part, they're good dogs, but I'd say they'd be a better fit for kids in the 6-7 range, 2 is a bit young. They're great dogs if everyone in the family is old enough and if there are enough people around willing to take the dog for lots of walks/runs to work off excess energy.
What CMXI said. Very hyper. I wouldn't want one around a 2 year old, just because I'd be worried about it knocking down the kid. Very sweet dogs, besides that.
Don't get one. #realtalk
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Thanks! Do they chew as bad as labs so during puppy stage? What about digging? Wife loves labs too.. I'm not sold on them. Brother had one.. Good dog but I liked my AmStaff better.
Get a German Shorthaired Pointer.
Best dog out there. Cousin to the Weimaraner but better. Less shedding, less slobber, tails don't knock everything over, more athletic, great in water and the best in the field.
All dogs dig. Put pepper in the holes and they won't do it again.
What do yo want it for? A working dog or just a companion? I've had two labs just as house dogs and they've both been the most loving and friendly dog's I've been around.
My buddy had a weimaraner who was a sweetheart, but she would smack her tail on the table when she got excited and hurt herself.
My advice, take family and check the local shelters. You'll find a dog and fall in love with it, i'd put money on it. Best part you can play with it there and most let you take the dog home and see if it will fit your family before making your decision.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
love my Weimaraner although I know mine is not like most.
shes not aggresive, she only chewed remotes as a puppy(kind of weird), and has never needed a leash
great dog and a smart breed.

Thought about that as well.. Just wanted my daughter to have the chance to raise it from a puppy (although it'd cut out that stage).
Don't want it for work. Inside dog. We go outdoors quite a bit. (Not nearly as much as I'd like thoug) Labs just seem bigger (weight wise) for some reason. I love German Shepards (neighbor is a cop and his dog is bad A) but Womam hates them. I'm looking the German SPointers. Never been around one but it's. good looking dog. Any other suggestions? I wouldn't mind a mid size dog (40-50 lb range) if there were any cool ones. (Short hair)
Good with a small child? Bark a lot? Reasonably hyper? I've raised tons of dogs so getting it in line isn't a worry.. Just want something that's kid friendly, smart & cool.
they have lots of puppys'. My dog is boxer/beagle mix that we rescued as a puppy. Super smart, about 40lbs and just an all around great dog
They need space, so unless you have a decent yard thats fenced i'd scratch them out. I think the deal with them as a breed is that they take a little longer to mature than most breeds, so they stay in that puppy stage long
My sister in law has a German short hair that is an effing Demon child. Aggressive as hell
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Didn't realize they had puppies.. Nothing wrong with mutts, usually make the best dogs. Yours doesn't stink? (Had beagles growing up to trail deer and they smelled awful)
I have a huge yard... but no fence.
mine is scared of everyone and doesn't even pay attention to my 4 month daughter, but does bark when something catches its attention(car door, knock on the door, etc)
my weimaraner is also as lazy as I am. It likes to go outside and run around, but is just as happy to sleep on the couch.
Not at all, he's moe boxer than anything though. Way smart though.
Lamp, you should hit up bobross on BYC. He trains dogs.
Good looking dog.
Will do.. Thanks. Can't go wrong with most any dog but I want to make the best decision to save me trouble in the long run.
