Hello! I’m Kim; for the last decade, my husband Barry and I raised Weimaraners from our home in Southern California. As of Spring 2018, we’ve relocated to Southern Utah (about two hours north of Las Vegas, Nevada). Even though we now make our home in the high desert at 5,800 feet elevation, my day job still takes me back to Los Angeles and Orange County about every other week. In other words, I’m still in Southern California all the time and always happy to deliver puppies along my route.
First and foremost, I am a lover of Weimaraners. At the moment,
two three four five of them live under my roof, and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. We do things together: hit up hiking trails, play at the beach, run in the desert, hang out at the office, go fishing, drink in bars, chow in restaurants, make cookies, snooze in hotels, lounge around the house… You know, all the normal stuff “crazy dog people” do with their dogs.
On occasion, I raise and send Weimaraner puppies to loving homes under the Barrett kennel name. Most of my puppies go to families in Southern California (primarily Los Angeles County and Orange County), but I’ve also sent Weimaraner puppies to Northern California, Central California, Phoenix Arizona, Las Vegas Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Massachusetts, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, and Canada. (If that’s you, please feel free to reach out; I take a lot of road trips and I’m always happy to deliver puppies along the way.)

Equally important, my purpose in life (really!!!) is to share my love of Weimaraners with others.
Every now and then, I help local breeders place their puppies. I also dabble with a Southern CA Weimaraner rescue by taking in strays to re-rehabilitate and then re-home them. If you’re looking for an adult Weimaraner in Southern California, please consider adopting one through CalWEAR.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A PUPPY?!
I’m currently accepting inquiries for a litter that will go home in Autumn 2019. This will be the last litter until Spring 2020.
Please review this page and follow the prompt to submit a prospective owner questionnaire if you might be interested in a puppy in the Fall.
If you’re looking for a puppy to join your family another time, click here for a list of nationwide Weimaraner breeders to inquire of any of them might have anything available/coming up. If you’re a lover of Weimaraners, let’s stay connected. Please feel free to follow us on Facebook or read about one of our previous litters to get an idea about how a typical litter is raised, what goes into their care, and what kind of community we have. Also, feel free to shoot me a message with any questions you might have.
