Recommended reading:

Weimaraner Ways, by Virginia Alexander. This book was written by my girl’s breeder, Ms. Virginia Alexander. If you’re only to own ONE book about Weimaraners, make this be the one. It’s FULL of Weimaraner specific information that you simply cannot get in just any book. I own this book and am happy to show it to you, but my copy is autographed so I’m not willing to lend it out. 🙂

Weimaraners, by Judythe Coffman. This book is a bit outdated, but it still has useful Weimaraner-specific information in it. I also own this book, and I’m happy to lend it out.

101 Dog Tricks, by Krya Sundance. A must-have for puppy owners; it’s a great book for bonding with your puppy and teaching her a few good tricks!

Your New Weimaraner Puppy: How to Survive the First Six Months, by Anne Taguchi and Meredith Wadsworth. This manual is written specifically for new Weimaraner puppy owners. Every Barrett puppy comes home with one of these, but if you’d like to buy a copy, please do so!

Local dog training facilities:

Jump Start Dog Sports, Yorba Linda, CA. I’ve taken a few conformation and obedience classes here with my dogs, and highly recommend the knowledge and expertise at this full-service facility. (Friday and LunaBelle have been here.)

Wags and Wiggles, Tustin and Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. We haven’t trained our dogs at this facility, but we have sent them here for daycare and weekend boarding when we’re out of town. (Britta and Wally been here.)

Penny Scott-Fox, Pasadena, CA. Jasper/Orange Boy from our 2013 litter and his parents have been enrolled in a few of Penny’s classes. Penny comes highly recommended from Jasper’s family. (Jasper has been  here.)
