This is Louis who has done so well in the show-ring gaining his Champion Crown in 2013. He has won 6 Challenge Certificates & 8 Reserve Challenge Certificates to date.
He has all the virtues of a classic Weimaraner, pale colour & sound conformation with a Hip Score result 2:3 Total 5. Well below the breed average.
I feel he has matured into a fine example of the breed but here's the critique written by judge Julie George-Ainscough after winning his 5th CC & Best in Show at The Weimaraner Club of Scotland 2013.
I have observed & admired this dog from afar throughout his career, a real smart showman with such striking, demanding ring presence. An overall upstanding picture of style, power & stamina, perfect balance & outline just what the Standard calls for, this dog stands over a lot of ground with the whole assembly on wonderful tight knuckled feet.Excellent head planes & expression, nice light eye, ear length & set, strong neck into good clean shoulder placement. Good deep chest, nice breastbone, deep brisket, super ratios throughout & pleasing angulations both fore & rear, good length of back with good extension of rib which are well sprung, short & strong couplings, good croup & tailset & carriage, nice turn of stifle with hocks well let down, well muscled throughout as these quarters enabled effortless, balanced & true ground covering & reaching movement, presented & handled to perfection.
Look at his pedigree & results page, they speaks for themselves!
I am so proud of our achievements so far & hopefully there will be much more to come in the future. I'm keeping my fingers & toes crossed.
He is owned in partnership with his breeders Dawn & Pete Radford.

This is Calypso who is very laid back & takes everything in her stride. She has now retired from showing but keeps the rest of the gang in check at home.She prefares Louis to be the star of the show. She just loves lazing around on the sofa or sunbathing in the garden which she likes best that is until a bird lands in the garden !!
She is my righthand girl!

I have owned Weimaraners for the past 14 years & currently owned 3. My male Louis is 6 years old , Calypso is 8 years old .My latest addition is called Attie who is now 3 years old where has the time gone, she is Louis's daughter.
They live with me, my family & Harmony my American cocker spaniel in Thame in Oxfordshire.
Louis & Attie are show dogs but more importantly, they are a huge part of our lives. They have brought us such pleasure, happiness, fun & excitement but have taught me so much about the breed.
I am a member of the Weimaraner Club of Great Britain , Weimaraner Assocation , North of England Weimaraner Society & Weimaraner Club of Scotland.
Both Calypso, Louis & Attie have been Hip Scored and are well below the breed average of 13.
