Verwegen; [ver-vee-gan] German For: Bold, Reckless, Venturesome, Adventurous,
We are a small kennel who thrive on working our Weimaraners.
My name is Lisa Baker and I have owned Weimaraners since 2004. I still consider myself to be relatively new in the breed as I am still learning new things. It is very important for us to sustain the heritage of what the Weimaraner was originally bred for. Although, the quarry of what they are working for has changed, the ideal is still there.
I am currently a committee member on the Weimaraner Club of Great Britain and the HPR Field Trial Secretary of the Bristol & West Working Gundog Society. I am also a member of many other Gundog Clubs including: Hampshire Gundog Society, The German Shorthaired Pointer Club, German Shorthaired Pointer Association, The Hunt, Point, Retrieve Breed Association, the German Wirehaired Pointer Club and the Central & Southern GSP Society.
I have attended and passed the Field Trial Judging seminar and exam and have also passed all my necessary assessments for show judging. I have stewarded for various shows and field trials and have judged at Gundog Working Tests. The breed is very important to me and although working them is my primary objective, I still believe they should conform in the show ring. The Weimaraner really is a versatile breed and I wish to continue to promote this.
All our dogs work on local shoots either beating or picking up.
Between seasons they compete in Gundog Working Tests and are shown lightly at Open and Championship level. During the season as well as working on the shoots, a couple of them will compete in Field Trials.
We currently have 3 Weimaraners ranging from 7 years and 2 years and 1 Pug! Each of our dogs are at different training stages. Follow our Facebook page to keep up with training sessions, show success and field competitions.
Our dogs are very much part of our family and live in the house with us and our Pug, Tilly!
