** After 39 years involvement in
the breed, we have called a halt to our
breeding programme & therefore, will
not be breeding any further litters.
We take this opportunity to thank all
our wonderful puppy owners over the
years & thank all those who have recently
inquired about puppy availability.
We are, of course, always available to
assist anyone with any questions about
Weimaraners and will endeavour to
help where we can **


Welcome to our website.

28.2.01. - 30.3.14.

We are situated in Morwell, Victoria, Australia.
Our kennel was established in 1980 with our first Weimaraner,
Greybeau Archilles, followed closely by Greylag Silva Warena
and our true foundation bitch, Grauhund Hi Calypso in 1983.

We focus very strongly on good temperament, breed type
and hunting ability and each and every litter is thoughtfully
researched at great length prior to taking place.
If we feel a certain dog will complement our bitches' lines,
we will do our utmost to ensure that this is the dog we use,
regardless of where he lives and distance travelled.

We have enjoyed 38 years of successfully showing
  our dogs, and we have bred numerous show champions,
several dual champions and obedience & tracking titled dogs.

We acknowledge the importance of
adhering to the current FCI Breed Standard in order to
maintain breed type. The US breed standard is not something
we focus on, although having said that, we have certainly used
US bred dogs in our lines. Our type of Weimaraner should indeed
look like they could work in the field all day if required.  We like our
dogs to have a good layback of shoulder, good length of upper arm,
strong, level toplines and the necessary width of second thigh.
It also goes without saying that a kind, biddable temperament is imperative.
Forward placed shoulders and lack of second thigh have
no place in our breeding progamme.

If a Weimaraner doesn't possess these attributes, they cannot
possibly last a day in the field (running around a show ring for
two minutes does not count !)

The showring is definitely not our main focus or priority,
so if you are solely after a 'show dog' and not a sound,
all-round gundog, who will also be a much loved family companion,
then perhaps you need to look elsewhere.

 We much prefer to spend our leisure time enjoying the
company of our dogs and participating in field-based activities
and allowing our dogs to do what they were originally bred for and
love best of all - being out in the field and hunting.
We feel sure that if they could speak, they would
much prefer to be doing this rather than running around
in a triangle for two minutes in the showring !

Having bred a modest 16 litters in 38 years, we believe
the old adage of 'quality rather than quantity', is paramount.

We have always loved the English-bred Weimaraner,
and while the US bred Weimaraner has added a certain
elegance and 'showiness' in our breed, we strongly believe
that soundness and hunting ability is  fundamental
in a Weimaraner.

It is important to never lose sight of the fact
that the Weimaraner is a hunt, point & retrieving
  breed with a kind and biddable temperament
above all else and not just a "pretty face" in the showring.

Our puppies are usually spoken for well before being born,
so a wait may be necessary.  However, if we are unable
to help you, we will endeavour to refer you to a
reputable breeder and/or the nearest Club Secretary
of your State Weimaraner Club.
