These dogs are happy to hang around the house all day as long as they are with their family.

When it comes to training, Weirotties are a breeze. Since they are incredibly intelligent, they learn new commands and tricks very quickly. However, their intelligence also means that they need a lot of mental stimulation. So make sure you have enough toys and puzzles for them to keep them busy.

Weimaraner and Rottweiler mixes are great companion dogs that always want to please their owners. However, you can also be quite opinionated, so it is important that you assert yourself as the alpha dog in the relationship. As long as you are consistent in your parenting, you will have no problem raising a well-behaved Weirotty.
