When most people think about a personal hunting dog, the first breed that comes to mind is the German Shorthaired Pointer. But Weimaraners can hunt, too. And when they’re bred right, it’s a beautiful sight to see.
But here’s the fine print: Just like people, not all dogs are created equal. And you can’t make sum’n outta nuthin’. In other words, a dogs’ ability to hunt is predetermined by his DNA.
Please inquire with me directly if you are looking for a Weimaraner you can hunt over (either seriously or casually), because not every litter planned will produce a good hunting dog, and I want to make sure you get the right dog.
Hunting litters are typically co-bred with Touchstone Weimaraners. They are backed by generations of proven hunting dogs, and are not advertised elsewhere on this website because the interest list for them is usually full/closed about six to nine months in advance of puppies being available.
The next hunting litter is planned for Late Autumn 2020/Early Winter 2021. It will be a repeat of a litter I bred last year; one of those puppies recently learned about wild birds in Southern Utah (and had contact with wild chukar, Huns, quail, and blue grouse); he’s now back in SoCal for the rest of the season. His littermates all seem to have great drive, good cooperation, long noses, and they’re. tough. as. nails. Bonus: They’re not big barkers and very easy going in the house.
Started dogs may also be available from time to time.
Barrett dogs have done well over pheasant in Washington State to Quail in the Southwest (Mountain, CA and Valley in CA and Mearns’ and Scalies in AZ) and Gambel’s as well as Chukar in Utah. We also have a dog in Southern CA who is being used for duck hunting; He’s a retrieving fool.
