The OTHER Variety
of the breed

My findings on Weimaraner Long Hairs...
The variety has been around from the beginning.
The gene is recessive, so they are not as commonly found as the Weimaraners, though in Germany where the breed originates they are just a popular as the Weimaraners. The coat type is obviously an asset in Germany by withstanding the colder climate. The breed standard is the same as for a Weimaraner, except for the length of coat and the fact that they do not have their tails docked. The Weimaraner Long Hairs coat as a mature adult is one and a half to two inches long, with extra feathering around the tail and legs. The tail coverage is excellent protection in the field. The coat is easy to manage and free flowing and does not mat or shed to the same extent as most coated dogs. A full litter of Weimaraner Long Hairs will be granted if both sire and dam are Weimaraner Long Hairs. If a Weimaraner is mated to a Weimaraner Long Hair they will only produce Long Hairs if the Weimaraner carries the Long Hair genes within the line. This still does not guarantee that you will get Long Hair pups. Two Weimaraners can produce Long Hairs if they both have Long Hair genes.
So the Weimaraner short hair gene is obviously dominant.
All countries around the world, except the U.S.A. include Weimaraner Long Hair as a fully registered breed variety. They can be shown and bred from as a purebred. Some countries like England, do show in a conformation ring alongside the Weimaraners, where in Australia we show them as a separate breed. Weimaraner Long Hairs can be trialed in Obedience, Retrieving, Tracking and Agility circuits-where they have been known to excel with the correct training and handling
