Barrett Weimaraners is pleased to confirm a planned breeding this Spring between Baja and Brandy. The purpose of this breeding is to produce a tough, powerful, athletic hunting dog with excellent stamina and good range.
The best puppies out of this litter are expected to do very well in AKC field trials, hunt tests and ratings. As companion dogs, we expect them to be active, loyal, affectionate, protective, and family-oriented.
The best homes for puppies out of this litter are those who are experienced with Weimaraners, and who don’t have cats in the house. The anticipated prey drive for puppies out of this litter is too high for the average family to successfully acclimate the puppy to household cats.
More about Baja. Baja (2016 Rossi x Mika) was bred to be a big running, hard hunting dog. With loads of natural talent, Baja won the 2018 Western Field Futurity, and was later steadied up by his owner to compete in local adult field trial stakes. In their down-time, Charles and Baja have been known to try other things: Baja has his Junior Hunter title, is NAVHDA NA prized, and has show points to boot. !!! At home Baja loves to go swimming, and is easy going, loyal, and sweet.

More about Brandy. Brandy was bred to be a field trial powerhouse. As a youngster, she lived with Mike in Michigan and was given a proper start with basic training and socialization. As a juvenile dog, Brandy went on to train with Diane Vater of AlphaDog, and traveled the Field Trial circuit in the Open Puppy and Open Derby stakes. Her greatest placement was getting into the ribbons in the National Open Derby stake in Ardmore, Oklahoma. (Her littermate sister Trixey won the stake.) In Summer 2020, Brandy came out west to try her hand at field trialing in the wide open desert. Brandy will be steadied up in Summer 2021 and be ready to compete in Open Gun Dog stakes in Autumn 2021. At home Brandy is quiet, sweet, affectionate, and naturally very well behaved.
