Dual Weimaraners Program was an idea brought to realization by these ladies who are concerned about our breed splitting into extreme show or extreme field:
Elena Smith Lamberson, Johns Island, SC. I
started with some pet Weims in the mid 1970s and got my first show dog in 1978.
I learned about show, retrieving, and tracking with April. My first field dog
was in 1979 and I learned about obedience and field with Tide, who became a FC
(back then, a dog with 13 titles was a LOT!).
I have trained thru MH, RDX, SDX, UD, TD & bred many US show Ch with
field titles. I have been an AKC Hunt Test judge since around 1991. I have
chaired many show and field events. I am a founder of the Gr Charleston Weim
Club and am active with Weim Rescue for South Carolina.
Snohomish, WA. I have had dogs all my life but grew up
Leslie Like - Hillsboro, Oregon. I started in Weimaraners 13 years ago with a pet from a show litter. As I became more familiar with field events I became aware of the conformation needed for a dog to function properly and have pointed my breeding program in that direction. I've finished 16 show Champions, one Field Champion and one Amateur Field Champion. I am the founder of Oregon Weimaraner Rescue and been a member of WCA and WWC since my first year in Weimaraners. I've chaired 3-5 field events per year and been involved with all breed organizations in helping develop Field Trial and Hunt Test opportunities for the Pacific Northwest. Judging Field Trials and Hunt Tests all year long keeps me in the saddle watching and learning. I am involved in the Dual project in an effort to help steer our breed back to the purpose it was created for. firstname.lastname@example.org
Elizabeth, CO Liz passed away on
March 15, 2010 We
are grateful for her knowledge,kindness and help with starting our group.
Carolyn Mehl - Seeley Lake, MT I have been involved with Weimaraners for 23 years. My primary activity with my Weimaraners is hunting. Living in Montana gives us a great opportunity to spend many hours in the field each fall upland bird and waterfowl hunting with our dogs. I also participate in AKC hunt tests, conformation, NAVHDA, and I am also an AKC hunt test judge. I am very concerned about the steady decline in bird hunters involved with Weimaraners that I have observed over the last 20 years. I am hopeful that with the dedication of people like Elena, Anne, Leslie, and Liz, as well all those that will support and participate in the dual Weimaraner program, that the versatile Weimaraner will return to the field where it belongs. email@example.com
We are Weimaraner fanciers from all over the United States and even have friends in other countries.
We have a wide array of experience in show and field. Some of us have our first Weimaraner puppy and are eager to learn all about show and field. Some of us have show dogs and want to train them for higher level of field titles. Some of us have field dogs and want to improve conformation. Some of us are show, field, hunting test, obedience or tracking judges.
We are all here for you; we want to share our knowledge, broadcast your wins and brags and plan Dual litters!
