The Labmaraner is a large dog breed produced by crossing a Labrador Retriever with a Weimaraner. It is characterized by a muscular stature, a long muzzle with large expressive eyes, a dark grayish nose, long curly ears, and long legs with webbed paws like its Labrador parent. It makes a great family pet even for an easygoing or new dog owner.

Temperament and Behavior

The labmaraner inherits some of the personality traits of its Labrador parent, making it a loyal, gentle, and loveable pet. A friendly dog by nature, it strives for human attention and likes to remain close to its family members. It is patient with children and does well with other pets too. However, its athletic and exuberant disposition calls for careful observation when around younger children, otherwise they could be knocked over and get hurt.

This sociable and pack-oriented pet is always happy to help its owner in family activities. Like its Weimaraner parent, it suffers from separation anxiety when left alone for hours. Although it does not bark at everything, it will certainly alert its owner about the presence of an intruder. This makes it suitable for watching and guarding activities.



Being highly energetic and lively, labmaraners need plenty of daily activities to burn off their energy. Thus, homes with enough room to play and run are suitable for raising these dogs. They should be taken out for walks every day, which does not mean strolling around the neighborhood will satisfy their exercise requirements. To be fit, they need vigorous activities like hiking, running, and playing. Since these obedient dogs like to stay close to their owners, they do not always have to be taken out on leashes.


The short and smooth-haired labmaraner does not require extensive maintenance. Combing once in every alternate week keeps its coat glossy. While bathing your pet with mild soap is recommended only when needed, occasional dry shampooing prevents the accumulation of dirt.

Health Problems

Like most crossbreeds, it is also prone to hereditary health issues. It may inherit some health conditions like hip and elbow dysplasia, entropion, obesity, and bloating from its parent breeds. Also, check for some general dog health concerns including diarrhea, worms, fleas, and ear infections.


Even though training them is easy, their occasional stubbornness is something that inexperienced owners might find difficult to manage. Employ a firm and assertive training method, but do not be harsh in your approach. Make the puppies familiar to their cage or crate so that they accept it as their safe dwelling place. Start socialization and obedience training early to prevent them from becoming over-dependent. This will also restrain some of their destructive behaviors like chewing small household items and digging holes in the yards.


Your labmaraner dog needs a nutritious diet rich in proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals to support its high activity levels. You can include high-quality dry dog food in your pet’s diet, but do give 4-5 cups of it regularly. Instead of providing one or two heavy meals, you should divide it through the day.

Interesting Facts

  • These are multitalented dogs and could be used for retrieving, jogging, agility, and performing tricks.

    Expecting a liter of Labmaraners puppies within the next 2 weeks. The father is a Black Lab which we purchased from Lake Labs. He was bred to carry the gene to produce yellow, chocolate and silver factored variants of offspring. The mother is a Weimaraner of course. Not exactly sure how coloring will go because of the gene the father carries. I currently reside in El Paso TX. If interested i can be contacted at 9155403496.

    We have a litter of Labmeraners / weimadors !
    Mom is a yellow lab and dad is a Weimaraner.
    These dogs are a mix of two great breads that share some similar qualities as perfect family members and hunting machines!
    The only difference from a lab is they don’t shed as much, have the bigger ears and typically longer legs.
    If you are considering a new family member you should google Labmeraners.
    We have 10 !
    2 silver, 2 chocolate and 6 black “blue”
    We are asking reasonable price of $500 for family pets/hunting
    They are only a week old so they are just starting to open their eyes but we are allowing people to meet them and put down a deposit and collar to claim your baby!Southern Illinois
