    It depends on my parents work requirements, because I cant go triapsing(sp?) across the country on my own, and also on whether we can afford the extra couple hundred $$, at that time.

    I have been speaking to a few owners @ DT, and they just seem to fit what I am looking for in a dog.

    Once breed is researched thoroguhly, choose a breeder. Talk to all of them via phone if need be. Check them out as much as possible. See which one talks well with you, which one gives you good vibes and which one you seem to relate best with. It will also come down to which breeder is breeding in such a way that you agree with too!

    You can converse via telephone, you will be able to keep in regular contact via e-mails, website etc.

    If they are a good breeder you should receive a puppy that is in good health. Breeders are quite expereinced with flying dogs across state and interstate.
    When you get your puppy, you will bond with that puppy no matter which one it is.

    Besides that, a breedr will be the one to often ascertain which puppy suits which owner. They are the ones getting to know each individual puppy. The breeder will have a fair idea which one is suitable for whom and their needs/requirements.

    Hope that all made sense.
    Thanks, DA, that was very helpful!!

    My parents have agreed to pay for the dog, as they don't seem to think it is fair that I should pay because of my age.

    I'm going to be really honest with you now and say think long and hard about Weims as a choice of dog. I don't know how old you are but if you are around the teenage years you are going to want to go out, party etc soon.

    Weims are the type of dog that is not easy to leave with other people. They have enormous exercise needs and unless they receive good training can be really stupid dogs. The energy levels require channelling in the right direction.

    Have a look at Greydove Weims and Lagotto's and see the difference between their requirements in their puppy application from the Weim to the Lagotto.

    I understand that this is a dream of yours and being a young person you probably will change your mind a few times before this all comes to fruition but just in case.....

    Weimaraners have the same temperament as Rottweiler...food for thought!

    It is a generalisation, but maybe aimed at more a childish mentality than age!
    There are a lot of the younger generation that are very sensible on here and do give valuable advice or ask very good questions.

    I wasn't generalizing anything!!! I was simply taking what you had said in your posts along with the information about you and forming an opinion! I'm entitled to that opinion!

    I didn't understand why you couldn't just hop on a plane and go see perspective pups. Now I do. Tbh I didn't realize children could join and post in public forums. I thought perhaps they had age limits but I guess they don't! Makes me even more wary about the access my future children will have to the Internet!

    Amy, there is no way to tell how old a person is when they join up. Some forums might state a certain age, but children can say they are much older then they are. It is all up to parental supervision.
    Parental supervision is the only way. Also not allowing computers in the bedroom etc., they must be in an area where parents can supervise.
