Does this Collar Make Me Look Fat?

“My dog is 105 pounds of solid muscle.”We hear this often in Weim circles. Yet almost anyone that is involved in Weimaraners as a breeder or in any of the various performance venues will tell you that “105 pounds” and “solid muscle” simply cannot describe the same dog.I don’t mean to offend —- but let’s be honest here. The Weimaraner standardallows for females to be 22-26” at the withers (highest point of the shoulder) and for males to be 24-28” when measured the same way. While the AKC does not specify a weight, the standard does stress moderation and an ideal specimen should “present a picture of grace, speed, stamina, alertness, and balance. Above all, the dog’s conformation must indicate the ability to work with great speed and endurance in the field.”
