Thank you for your potential interest in a Barrett puppy!
If Weimaraners are new to you, please research the Weimaraner breed standard. Then take a look at what life is like with my Weimaraners, here. Can you see yourself living with one?! Interview a few Weimaraner breeders who are local to your area. Ask them what it’s like to live with their dogs; their experiences might be different than mine. Be sure to ask them some technical questions, too, like these. If you decide after your research that a Weimaraner isn’t for you, consider a few other breeds that might fit your lifestyle a little bit better. For those interested in a hunting companion or competition prospect, please reach out directly so we can talk about what might be or become available.
Just a few photos of the dogs around the house, around town, and on weekend getaways.

Barrett Weimaraners are thoroughly evaluated for prospective owners. 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 selection by companion families.
Companion/pet dogs are sold on non-breeding contracts and 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. Until then, breach of this agreement will result in legal action.
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 I WILL take the dog back.
Barrett puppies are not cheap. 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?!
Swede x LadyBug Litter. LadyBug was bred by Barrett Weimaraners (2014 Torque x Friday) and is now one of Base Camp Weimaraners’ foundation bitches. This litter is co-bred by both Base Camp Weimaraners and Barrett Weimaraners for temperament and structure. Puppies graded as show prospects will be reserved for show homes. Other puppies will be available in late July 2019 for hunting or companion homes. Availability: All puppies are spoken for.
Otto x Bliss Litter. Bliss is an import to Barrett Weimaraners from Heartbeat Weimaraners in Michigan. Both Otto and Bliss are small but mighty and hard hunting dogs. This litter will be bred for field trial ability (run, range, ground speed, nose, and style); those puppies not selected as field trial prospects will be placed in September/October 2019 in either hunting or companion homes. Availability: Inquiries welcome.
The Otto x Bliss litter is our last one planned for 2019. Once these puppies go home, we will be kicking it into high gear for hunting and field trial season. The next litter will be planned for Winter 2020. Please inquire with us directly if you’d like some more information.
Please complete and Submit a Prospective Owner Questionnaire. You can find a copy of that questionnaire, here. Warning, it’s very long; sorry about that. The purpose of this 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. If there’s a particular litter you’re interested in, please let us know at the bottom of the form.
Got extra time on your hands?!
