Thank you for your potential interest in a Barrett puppy. Below is some more information about us:
Barrett Weimaraners are thoroughly evaluated and assessed. Every breeding part of a carefully planned breeding program. Puppies are graded for temperament, ability and structure before they are eight weeks old; those that are selected as candidates for our next generation of Weimaraners are reserved either for ourselves or for peers who commit to the advancement of the Weimaraner. Those puppies not earmarked for such will generally be available for companion/pet families.
Purchase Agreements must be signed. Purchase Agreements protect all parties. A Barrett Purchase Agreement includes a health warranty, documents microchip information and outlines vaccination schedules and protocols.
Companion/pet dogs may not be bred. If you think you might want to breed your dog someday, let’s talk. In the event we mutually agree that your dog is a good breeding candidate, let’s make that happen together with guidance, mentorship, and support.
You may not re-home your dog. It’s my goal to be sustainable for every puppy I breed, and that means keeping them OUT of the pound/shelter/rescue network. I realize, however, that despite our best efforts, sometimes, unforeseen life events happens, and a Barrett puppy owner may find themselves unable to take care of their dog. It could be a lifestyle change, lack of available time for a dog, a move across the country. There’s also babies, divorces, untimely deaths… It happens, and that’s okay. There’s no judgment, but the Purchase Agreement for your dog will stipulate that the dog must come back to me, the breeder.
Barrett puppies are not inexpensive. More about that, here. In summary, blood, sweat, and tears go into every litter produced, but getting a Barrett pup means you become a part of the Barrett family, and that comes with a lifetime of support, guidance, and friendship.
I realize this philosophy doesn’t work for everyone; that’s totally fine. If the above doesn’t work for you, please allow me to refer you to another local breeder who may be able to help you. In the meantime, I’m also still happy to answer any general questions you may have about the breed or the process of buying a puppy. The bottom line: you should be happy with the breeder you go with and the puppy that you bring home.
So you think you might still want a Barrett puppy?!
Please complete and Submit a Prospective Owner Questionnaire. The purpose of this long questionnaire is for us to get some basic information before we start a dialogue; we’d love to get to know you.
We’ll contact you to let you know that we’ve received your questionnaire. If you don’t hear from us within a week of submitting it, please ping me directly at kim [at] barrettweimaraners [dot] com; it’s very possible that your questionnaire got lost in outer space and we never saw it.
Got extra time on your hands?!
