A Natural

Extremely Nosey

   ~In a Good Way

Bien's Henry_155416

I didn’ t realize that Henry has only been learning scent-work since March.  We got involved because being an energetic, 3-year-old Weim, with a flair for being extreme nosey, it seemed to be fit.  Also, I  found the science behind a dogs nose fascinating.

What We Accomplished

Henry has completed Level 1, 2, 3 and working in level 4.  More than anything though, it has been an experience for me!   I have learned more about myself in the last few months and for that, I am most grateful to my handsome Blue boy.  Scentwork is a team trust sport.

Your dog knows what to do, however until dogs and humans can speak the same language, the sport is much more about learning patience, watching your dogs every move, and even more important, trust.   We have had good trials and not so good, one thing is certain Henry loves this sport and so do I.  We take away something new from each practice or trial.  We figure a way through false alerts and keep rewarding the sourced odor.

Henry’s hard work has left us with 3 titles, Level 1 and 2 C-WAGS, Level 1 ABC games, Noteworthy, in our seemingly short period of time.  I am very  lucky to have Henry enjoy this sport as much as I do.  It’s a special bond with a Weimaraner, I’m finding out truly how extraordinary Henry is.  Thank-you Cliff and Shela!!

We are happy to hear about your continued success. Congratulations to you Patti–what a great team the two of you make. Fun–that is something that is so important. If you are having a good time more than likely, the Weimaraner is as well. At least in Henry’s case, this seems to be his element. Keep up the good work!

Wearing his Win!

~Making the Most of What We Have

Opportunities to make something ordinary into extraordinary surround us. It is all about perspective. Happy New Year Weimlovers. Let’s make it a great one!

Featured Weimaraner — Trevi

In Calgary yesterday….

Tired Trevi

Tired Trevi

Breeder’s Note: Joe flew in from Calgary, and carried Trevi (as his carry-on luggage) home in a Sherpa Bag. He made the trip well. His new friend (Jeff’s Oscar–a Blue Weimaraner) has been playing with him, He has played hard, and is now, exhausted.

Jeff’s family has moved in with Joe for the short haul, because they got caught in the flood, and are evacuated. He sent a couple of cute short video clips of Trevi (and Trevi and Oscar). I am going to try to upload those, and share them sometime soon. Our thoughts and prayers for the displaced families in the Calgary area.

And if you happen to live in Calgary or have business with Fidelity Machine (Click Here) you might meet Oscar or Trevi there. I am sure they have secured a position in the company. Or at least they are supervising a few office professionals.

Featured Weimaraner — Mumford

Here is our update on our blue OwyheeStar boy we call Mumford!

Mumford June 2013 gotta goWe Found a Great Vet

Mumford got neutered on Wednesday and is recovering wonderfully I found a new vet that is just awesome and has a few other Weimaraners that she treats and she seems very knowledgeable on the breed!Mumford June 2013

I have Cliff’s training program

I finally got the training package you guys recommended I’ve decided to watch it a few times before putting it into practice, but from the first week I got him he’s been awesome off leash and very trustworthy so I can tell he will be easy to train and he’s very willing!

He is trainable, and even learns tricks

He’s able to learn tricks so fast and can sit shake a paw all that good stuff! I also really wanted to let you know that you have bred a extremely good looking pup. Everywhere I go people go on and on about how he’s the most beautiful Weimaraner they have ever seen so props to you guys 🙂

Baby Mumford

I thought I would fill you in and say thank you for such a kind beautiful boy and he is still such a tail wagger 😛 have a great day! ~ Christine ( British Columbia )

Breeder’s Note: This family took Mumford when he was a bit older than the usual 8 weeks. It worked out well for them. They have a family dog grooming business with dogs going, (and coming) from their property. Mumford easily slipped into their family, and adjusted quickly. There was less risk of exposure to Parvo, etc. Having the right veterinarian (whose approach is holistic), and one that takes into consideration the special needs of the Weimaraner is important.
