Timberdoodle Weimaraners got a great start many years ago with an outstanding bitch CH Grayangel Kodiak II, SH, SDX, RDX, VX. She was an incredible learner dog for me; A phenomenal natural hunting dog with an amazing work ethic and awesome temperament, who was wonderful mother and an ambassador for the breed. She loved to hunt and became the pinnacle of raising bird dogs that I still abide by. Early on Kodi and I, as well as many of her puppies, tried many different field venues, AKC, WCA, before we found North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association, (NAVHDA). NAVHDA works well for us with regards to the type of hunting that we do; pretty much all upland and waterfowl, tracking blood or running birds. The water work in NAVHDA has prepared the dogs to come in cold, many hours after birds were thought lost, to retrieve downed ducks and geese. Our dogs are bred to do what we love to do.
Trainability is a big thing to us at Timberdoodle Weimaraners, we strive to produce pups that can go on and excel as “broke” bird dogs if their owners decide to just run a finished dog as a bird dog or if they decide to continue on in higher levels in North American Versatile Hunting Association events. So many promising young dogs disappear from the event scene when training becomes tough, many simply do not have the work ethic to continue on. While hunting is our primary focus and always will be, our dogs have also done very well in their NAVHDA events at all levels. All trained by their amateur owner/handlers, this is the type of dog I started with – and I strive to continue that tradition. Titles and Breeder award information can be found listed on “Our Brags” page. Health is also very important to us, all dogs, bitches used in our program are tested for every health test available for Weims, all of our personal dogs have CHIC numbers with Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. This information is available on the OFA website and also listed on our site.
I was recently fortunate enough to add a dear friend, puppy owner, and awesome amateur trainer as a co breeder; Mindy Brown has been added to the Timberdoodle family and has been an absolute pleasure to train and work with. Mindy has been in Weims with her husband Drew for many years and we share the same breeding philosophy regarding temperament, trainability and health being absolutely crucial in our breeding program. We also agree that exceptional bitches are crucial to produce pups that have a solid work ethic. Mindy did an outstanding job with her bitch Timberdoodle’s Toast to Touchstone, SDX, RDX, NAVHDA NA 1, UT 1, ,”Moxie” earning a UT prize 1, first attempt and then did an amazing job of preparing Moxie for the NAVHDA Invitational. Moxie is now retired from all events and is hunting with Mindy during their bird season and also guiding hunts when they have the time.
