Barrett Weimaraners

… Dogs who live at Barrett headquarters …

The below-listed Weimaraners are my personal dogs and, when they’re not on the road in training, they live with me in my (super small, cozy, city) home. As of this writing, there are five of them on the books.

Britta | Barrett’s Master of the House

DOB: March 17, 2009 - Britta Begging for Breakfast - 2012.PNGBritta is a Weimaraner. Maybe. No one really knows. The truth is, she was purchased from a newspaper ad and the “breeder” promised to send the AKC registration in the mail. This was long before we knew how to properly buy a dog. Of course, the papers never came. (A few months later, the phone was disconnected.) But she looks like a Weimaraner, so we’re sticking to it! Britta is spayed. She has no offspring. Her tail’s too long. Her coat’s too short. She has a good dose of anxiety and broke a tooth once eating her crate. We’re also on kitchen door # 2 because once upon a time, she ran through it at full speed. But she is our resident queen and has no problem taking the Auntie Britta role when it comes to raising Friday’s babies. She’ll also play with them, because, you know, Friday is too snotty to entertain her own children. #truestory Seriously though, this is the lady that hooked us into the breed, and the first-born will always hold a special place in our hearts. Britta currently spends her day sunbathing, snoozing, and bossing the others around. Life is good for the resident top dawg.

Friday | GCh Axel’s Reiteralm n’ Gun Run Gal Friday JH

DOB:August 15, 2008 | OFA Hips: Good, OFA Elbows: Normal, Thyroid: Normal, HUU/HYM: (N/N) - Friday - Bird Work - Spring 2011Friday is the matriarch of the Barrett family and came to me from the estate of Virginia Alexander. Friday is also the little devil who is responsible for luring me into Weimaraner competition. [The back-story is that I was just looking for another pet and sister for Britta, and I somehow got talked into taking Friday on the condition that I showed her and then considered breeding her.] In three litters, Friday has blessed me with 23 beautiful puppies that have or will grow up to be just as special as she is. Nowaways, she’s retired and enjoys sunbathing on the deck outside, or snoozing on the sofa while waiting for her next meal. In her spare time, she’s writing a letter to Congress to lobby for a change in standardized dinner-time from 6:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Friday is my heart dog; I can’t begin to tell you how hard I love her, but that’s another story for another day. In the meantime, let me just state for the record that I will forever be thankful to Holly McKnight and Anne Taguchi for allowing my gal Friday to come live with me, and also to Louise Brady, for gracefully handling and finishing Friday’s show career. Friday’s pedigree can be viewed here

Boulder | BIM GCh Knight n’ Barrett’s Pioneer Mountain Man

DOB: June 2, 2013 | OFA Hips: Good, OFA Elbows: Normal, Thyroid: Normal, HUU/HYM: (N/N)

Career highlights: Best Dog at 2016 WCA Western Maturity, First Place Senior Futurity Dog at 2015 WCA Western Show Futurity, Third Place at 2015 WCA National Field Futurity.

Boulder Man Barrett was my Pick Dog out of the 2013 Max x Friday litter. From the time he was four weeks old, I knew this kid was special. In 2014, he earned his show Championship with three Majors in just six weekends out. A day shy of his first birthday, Boulder went off to Summer Camp with Terry Chandler, Sr. In May 2015, Boulder came home for awhile to make an appearance at his show Futurity. One week before his second birthday, he picked up his first BEST OF BREED ribbon at the Mission Circuit under Judge Clay Coady. In July 2015 Boulder earned his bench Grand Championship as well the First Place Senior Futurity Dog ribbon at the Western Futurity and Maturity in Portland, Oregon. In August 2015, with six breed wins under his belt in 2.5 months, Canine Chronicle had him listed as the #18 show Weimaraner. In September 2015 Boulder was ranked # 5 on the WCA Continuous Derby list, and then in December 2015, Boulder picked up a nice Third Place ribbon at the WCA National Field Futurity in Ardmore, OK. In July 2016, Boulder WON the 2016 WCA Western Best Dog in Maturity ribbon.  In September 2017, Boulder earned a very nice Second Place ribbon in the Open Gun Dog class (with 21 starters) at the Sahuaro Brittany Club Field Trial. This was only his second weekend out as a broke dog! Boulder is owned and loved by me when he is at home. At the shows, he is exclusively handled by Robert Scott. When on the road running the field trial circuit, he’s on the Rugerheim string. Note: Boulder is currently on the road with Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels. We expect to see him again this spring in California City, CA at the 2018 WCA Western Classic and Field Futurity. Boulder has his own page here, and his pedigree can be viewed here.

Tennessee | HighPoint’s Shotgun Boogie to Barrett, show pointed

DOB: May 4, 2016 | OFA: Too young

I’ve waited a long time for this baby girl to join the Barrett gang. Tennessee, or “TennTenn,” is an incredibly sweet girl who comes to me from friend and breeder, Lani Jones of HighPoint Weimaraners. We’re hopeful that Tennessee will someday contribute beauty, size and structure to the overall Barrett breeding program. Tennessee is still young and just starting on her show career. When we’re able to, she also comes with us to the field so we can build her confidence on birds. A true girls’ girl, her favorite thing at home is to snuggle up with Britta, Friday, and Mango. Next up, maybe a couple of tries at getting her AKC Junior Hunter legs. This one’s going to be fun to watch grow up!! Tennessee’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Mango Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Santa Margarita Peak

DOB: May 1, 2017 | OFA: Too young

The latest addition to the Barrett gang, Mango was my stud fee puppy out of Jim and Debbie Ebert’s 2017 Boulder x Lenka Mountain Peak Nine litter. So far, we know she’s beautiful, willful, spunky, playful, likes to climb out of xpens, and LOVES her pigeon and quail. I’m absolutely tickled that Mango also displays some “classic Barrett traits” such as flopping her head over her people, nooking, and crossing her paws. She also displays her biological father’s trademark cowlick, which runs vertically between her eyes. As of this writing, we have no idea what her future holds. Show? Hunt? Field? NAVHDA? Maybe all of the above? In December 2017, Mango competed at her very first dog show at the Winter Specialty in Ardmore, Oklahoma, and walked away with a very nice Reserve Winners Bitch ribbon. (Yay baby girl!!!) Since 2018 is Mango’s futurity year, I’ve decided that I MIGHT be willing to get her ready to run at the Western in California City in February. Let’s see…

… The Kids …

At the moment, we’re also growing out a trio quad of youngsters with the hopes that they’ll become outstanding examples of the Weimaraner breed.

Elleven Barrett’s Primorial Princess, Major show pointed

DOB: August 17, 2016 | OFA: Too young

As a baby, Elleven was the Navy Collar Girl out of the 2016 BoulderSeren litter. In Autumn 2016, I sent her to Holly and Gail to grow her out a bit, because I knew she was special and had no idea where I was going to put her. In May 2017 at the SF Bay Weimaraner Specialty, Elleven earned her first Major with Robert Scott. In July of the same year, she earned another one! In the spring, we’ll add some bird work and water sense to her resume, and maybe hit up a few more dog shows to see if we can get her finished. Elleven sports a beautiful headpiece, and has one of the sweetest personalities out of all my Boulder kids. Her pedigree can be viewed here.

Luna | Touchstone n’ Barrett’s Autobot Moonracer, NAVHDA NA PRIZE 1 (112)

DOB: August 8, 2015 | OFA: Preliminary Hips Excellent, Preliminary Elbows Normal - 2016-01-16 - Luna on Point 01LunaBot was Purple Girl out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. In October, I sent her to live with Carlos and Jana so she could “get away from the nest” for a little bit. A few weeks later, Luna was invited by Fox Studios to shoot a scene in a television mini-series, and in February, we caught a glimpse of her onscreen in the final episode of “American Crime Story,” featuring Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. (We also met Mr. Gooding, and can say with certainty that he’s a very, very nice guy.) In December 2015, Luna traveled over 2,500 miles (with littermate brother Turbo) to see her biological dad (2xNFC/FC ERBENHOF SnS BOOGIE WOOGIE BO) compete in Ardmore, OK at the 2015 WCA NAtional Field Trial. In April 2016, while still under the car of Carlos and Jana, Luna earned a perfect score in her NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Carlos. So far, Luna’s biggest asset is that she has a lot of point. Now, we’re looking to see if she has any run. This winter, Luna is in training with Firestorm Bird Dogs/Warren Eizman in Anza, CA. Luna’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Blaise Pascal Trax Blaise Pascal, Major show pointed

DOB: November 8, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Blaise Pascal (GCH Camelot’s I’m a Travelin’ Man x Trax Jet Stream FDJ) is one of my young Dual Champion-prospect boys from Shirley/Trax Weimaraners.  In June 2017, he made his debut as a show dog at the Southland Weimaraner Club Show Specialty in Ventura, CA, and came home from the weekend with both of his Majors, a Best of Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes ribbon, and two Best Puppy rosettes. Over the summer, he spent a bit of time at Terry Chandler’s Camp Snoopy, but then came home in the fall for a little bit of a break. Nowadays, he’s in the Canadian tundra learning some manners with his breeder, Shirley Nilsson of Trax Weimaraners. Next up is finishing his American show career, possibly getting started on his Canadian show career, and maybe an appearance in the Field Futurity at the 2018 WCA Western Classic.

Even Steven Trax Even Steven, field pointed

DOB: November 26, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Even Steven (CH Trax Edenrock One Night Stand x Reiteralm Legacy Von Trax) is my other young boy from Shirley/Trax Weimaraners. I knew immediately that when I saw his mother, Feist, running at the field trials that someday, I wanted to own one of her kids. I spent the next year pretty much BEGGING Shirley Nilsson in Canada for one of these puppies, and eventually, down came Steven!!! Spring 2017 found us many-a-times at the local Prado Regional Park swimming in the pond (this kid’s a natural swimmer), or training with birds in one of the fields. In September 2017, Steven made his Field Trial debut and came home with a Third Place ribbon in Open Puppy from the Sahuaro Brittany Club, and a Fourth Place ribbon in Open Puppy from the Desert GSP Club. Two months later, he WON the Open Puppy stake at the Las Cruces field trial. Yay Steven!!! In December 2017, Steven made an appearance in the Open Puppy stake at the WCA National Field Trial in Ardmore, Oklahoma. He had a great time, but fell out of the ribbons. Next up is running in his Field Futurity in California City at the 2018 WCA Western Classic.


… Team Barrett Weimaraners …

Since I live in a small house in the city, it’s not ideal/smart/possible for me to “keep a puppy” out of ever litter I produce. That’s where “Team Barrett” comes in. Team Barrett consists of people who own Barrett dogs and either do great things with them, or they allow me to borrow the dogs back and do great things on their behalf, all in the name of proving how outstanding these Weimaraners are. As adults, these dogs are evaluated for health, structure and temperament, and in some (but not all) cases, they’ll contribute to the overall Barrett breeding program, their owners’ breeding programs, or both.

Gracie | Ch Barrett’s Lady Grey (4 pts towards Field CH) 

DOB: April 15, 2014 | OFA Hips: Excellent, OFA Elbows: Normal

Owner: Erin Smith

2015-12_WCA-National-Field-Trial_Ardmore_Gracie_2nd-Place-DerbyGracie was “Lilac” out of the 2014 Max x Friday litter and, when at home, lives with her mamma Erin and sister Bug. When on the road, she hangs out with Terry Chandler, Sr. and her brother, Boulder. In April 2015, Gracie became the first-ever Barrett dog to be field pointed by winning an Open Puppy stake at a Northern New Mexico Brittany Trial. In April 2015, Gracie picked up another Puppy Point with her First Place ribbon at the WCA Western Classic in Madras, Oregon. By June 2015, Gracie had also picked up a few show points, once even going Best of Opposite Sex over Specials for her first Major (at the Del Monte Kennel Club shows in Carmel, CA). In July 2015, Gracie earned the Second Place Junior Futurity Bitch ribbon at the Western Futurity and Maturity in Portland, Oregon. In December 2015, she picked up a nice Second Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the WCA National Field Trial in Ardmore, OK. In June 2016, Gracie picked up her Third Major and finished her show career. Currently the only show- and field- pointed Barrett dog, Erin and I have very high expectations for little Miss Gracie, who is currently with Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels in New Mexico. Gracie has her own page here, and her pedigree can be viewed here.

Bug | GGH Barrett n’ Star’s Flying Spectacle NSD 

DOB: October 8, 2014 | OFA Hips: Excellent, OFA Elbows: Normal

Owner: Erin Smith 2015-05-25 - - 2016-01-11 - Bug - Movement - SquareBug was “LadyBug” out of the 2014 Torque x Friday litter (yeah, we really did go there), and lives with Erin and Gracie. I have a special place in my heart for this one because not only is she the spitting image of Mamma Friday in the face, but she has Friday’s dark coat, too (which I really like). In September 2015, Bug and Erin made their debut in the ring together. In November 2015, Bug earned her Novice Shooting Ratings title! In December 2015, we took her to Ardmore, and Bug competed in the first-ever Walking Puppy stake at the WCA Field Trial. No ribbons, but lots of applause for being part of the inaugural group. In February 2016, Bug WON the 2016 WCA Western Classic Field Futurity, and in July, she followed that up with a Fourth Place in Intermediate Bitch ribbon in the 2016 WCA Western Futurity/Maturity. In Spring 2017, Bug was leased out to Louise Brady of Star Weimaraners and delivered three healthy, beautiful girls. Next up for Bug: Expecting her next litter in Winter/Spring 2018! Bug has her own page here, and her pedigree can be viewed here.

At 6 months and 10 days old, Jaeger picked up a Winners dog AND Best of Opposite Sex ribbon over three Specials under Judge Terry Stacey for his first Major. By July 2015, Jaeger had easily finished his bench championship under only eight judges and with FOUR MAJORs. Nowadays, Jaeger is his dad’s best kickaround buddy, getting to come to work with him in Tennessee. Jaeger’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Ticon | Touchstone n’ Barrett’s Autobot Villain, NAVHDA PA PRIZE I (110)

DOB: August 8, 2015 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Halit Akgun - 2016-01-03 - 10Ticon was Orange Boy out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. At 8 weeks of age, he was placed with Halit in Orange County. By October, Ticon was out rock-climbing his with his dad, in November, he saw his first snow, and in December, he had his first big road trip to Utah. In January 2016, we began putting him on birds to get him ready for Puppy Stakes at the local field trials. In February 2016, Ticon was entered in his first field trial stake and did a respectable job. A couple months later, he earned a Prize I (110) in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Halit. In Summer 2016, Ticon spent Summer Camp with Kim Sampson in Utah. In late Autumn, Ticon was sent to Diane/AlphaDog and made an appearance at the 2016 National Field Trial in Ardmore.

DOB: August 8, 2015 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Diane Vater

Turbo was Yellow Boy out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. It was clear from the get-go that this boy was special. In October, he left the nest to stay with Erin and Bug up in the mountains. In December, he traveled over 2,500 miles (with littermate sister Luna) to see his biological dad (2xNFC/FC ERBENHOF SnS BOOGIE WOOGIE BO) compete in Ardmore, OK at the 2015 WCA NAtional Field Trial.

Riley | Ch Barrett’s Love Bug

DOB: February 15, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Ric Zappala and Anthony Rojas

Riley was Black Boy out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter holds the Barrett record for QUICKEST dog to earn his Show Championship. In just about four weekends, Riley finished with THREE majors, out of the 9-12 class. In June 2017, we brought him out for the first time as a Special at the Pasadena Kennel Club shows, and he earned a GROUP 4 with his BFF handler, Robert Scott. This also makes him the first group-placing Barrett dog. Riley is currently taking the summer off, but we’ll be bringing him back out in the Fall for a series of shows.

Graham Barrett’s Love is a Happy Home, Major show pointed

DOB: February 15, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Joel and Kamie Hendricks


As a youngster, Graham was the Blue Boy out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter and known online as “The Jumbo Jet.” When the time came to send everyone home at eight weeks, I just couldn’t part with this little guy. In the spring, Graham went to stay with Mara (Ellie’s owner) while I had Ellie at my house for a string of shows. With Mara’s report that Graham was a lovely lovely boy, the search was ON to find him a forever home that would let me borrow him back for a string of dog shows if he grew up to be a beautiful boy. Graham was eventually placed with the Hendricks family in Huntington Beach. In March 2017, Graham made his show debut in Vallejo, CA, and came home with a Major win and a few single points. We’ll bring him back out in Spring 2018 to see if we can finish his show career.

Sookie Barrett’s Independence Inn

DOB: July 2, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Jason and Sasha Robertson

Sookie was “Pink Girl” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. My “pick of the litter” ended up with friends and neighbors, the Robertson family, who also own Marshall out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter. Although still young, it’s CLEAR to everyone who’s met her that this girl is sum’n special. With zero training, Sookie easily stands her birds from 30 yards out, all day long, and with a 12 o’clock tail. So far, we’ve got a few second, third, and fourth place in Open Puppy and Amateur Walking Puppy stakes. Hoping for a Blue Ribbon in the near future after we get through some more training with Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels. Sookie’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Baja Barrett’s Stars n’ Stripes JH NSD

DOB: July 2, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Charles and Kristi Salse

Baja was “Orange Boy/Arnold” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. From Day ONE, Baja’s parents were committed to training him and handling him. In just a couple of weekends in February 2017, Baja earned his Junior Hunter title. He also has his Novice Shooting Dog title from a WCA ratings test. In Spring 2017, Baja also earned a perfect FOUR score in every single NAVHDA NA test category… except the pointing one, in which he didn’t earn a score. (Bummer!!!) But that’s okay, he eventually earned a Prize II a few months later. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll get him geared up to participate in his Field Futurity. Baja’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Ronin Barrett’s American Patriot JH (Show pointed)

DOB: July 2, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Brian and Trinity Osborn

Ronin was “Blue Boy” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. This kid has it all. Parents who are devoted to him, a community who supports him, a nose that directs him, and legs that move him. Passing four legs to get his Junior Hunter title was easy. Evidently, so was running at the field trial in the Open Puppy Stakes… all with his mom, Trinity. Because that’s not enough, Ronin also plays in the show ring, and has show/bench points to boot!! Next year, we’ll get him geared up to participate in his Field Futurity. Ronin’s pedigree can be viewed here.

Cowboy CH Barrett’s Knight-Time Rock n’ Roll Cowboy

DOB: August 17, 2016 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Holly McKnight and John Nelssen

Cowboy was “Orange Boy” out of the 2016 Boulder x Seren litter. My “pick of the litter,” I sent him to Holly in Autumn 2017, so I could buy myself some more to figure out where I wanted to put him. Well, whaddayaknow?! It turns out that Holly and John’s house was where he belonged. 🙂 In Spring 2017, Cowboy made his show debut, and by September had finished his bench championship by going Best of Breed over Specials (!!!). Next up is gearing up for his Field Futurity at the 2018 WCA Western Classic in California City. Cowboy’s pedigree can be viewed here.


Kelibek PM’s Knight of the Butterfly

DOB: March 2017 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Jeanette Akcayoglu

Kelibek (PM and Knights breeding of 2017 Timber x Sophie) was bred by Dawna/PM Weimaraners and Holly/Knights Weimaraners and comes to the greater Barrett family as a prospective hunting specialist.

Owner Jeannette is a friend I originally met through CalWEAR. Once upon a time, she adopted a stray Weimaraner (fun fact: this was FIRST dog CalWEAR ever placed) and loved him until the day he crossed the rainbow bridge. After Kopek, Jeannette asked me to find her a Barrett dog. Since I didn’t have any litters of my own last year, I trusted Holly to find Jeannette a puppy for me. Enter Kelibek! Her parents are proven hunting dogs, so I suspected this girl might have some natural bird-sense. I didn’t, however, expect to see so much drive, desire, and RUN on her first day out on birds. The Garmin had her tracked over 850 yards, chasing after pigeon.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that maybe this isn’t a fluke, and that sometime in the near-term future, we can run her off of horseback.

Mattie Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Lemmon Peak

Ruby Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Ruby Mountain

Simon Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Simon Peak

Walter Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Aspiration Peak

Zane Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Mongollon Rim

DOB: May 1, 2017 | OFA: Too young

Owner: Various

Mattie, Ruby, Simon, Shadowfax, Walter, and Zane are Mango’s littermate siblings. At the moment, they’re all young and just having a good time being puppies. We’re hopeful that a few of them will debut their show careers at the Valley of the Sun Weimaraner Club’s Show Specialty in February 2018. We’ll also see about getting them into the field and ready for their NAVHDA Natural Ability tests.
