Welcome to the official website of the Weimaraner Klub of Gauteng, the only KUSA-affiliated Weimaraner club in South Africa  (And yes the K in Klub is intentional – the name of the club was derived from that of the German club)

The aim of the klub is to maintain and improve the quality of Weimaraners in South Africa by expecting Klub registered breeders to comply with a Code of Ethics set by the Klub. Since the klub’s inception members were encouraged to have their dogs x-rayed for hip dysplasia.

The rules for hip dysplasia state that:

  1. Dogs/bitches with a Grading of A1, A2, B1 can be bred to dogs/bitches with the same grading or that of B2, C1, C2.
  2. Dogs/bitches with a grading of B2, C1, C2 may only be mated to dogs/bitches with a grading of A1, A2, B1

Since January 1992, all Weimaraners are expected to comply with these regulations before a litter can be registered at Kusa.

Klub members are encouraged to show their dogs at KUSA shows, and we also host our own Open and Championship show in February and August respectively

Also, since a Weimaraner is first off a working dog, the Klub hosts an annual Shooting Ratings test in June, with training sessions in the two months before that. Klub members, and indeed all interested Weimaraner owners are welcome to bring their dogs for training on the training Sundays, and also so the dogs can be tested for Retriever and Shooting ability at the Shooting Ratings.

Joining the Klub

Full Membership (Single or Family) including initial entry fee costs R200.00 per year. If a member joins after the 1st October, the membership is valid for the following year as well. Annual Membership Renewal is R150.00, Late renewals (after April) will be R170.00

Cancellation of Shooting Ratings 2020

Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 restrictions and proposed Level 4 restrictions we are unable to go ahead with the Shooting Ratings training and therefore it would make it very difficult to hold the Ratings even if the restrictions regarding gatherings, social distancing at restaurants (i.e. lunch at Oppiedam), travel etc. were lifted by then, which does not seem likely.

Therefore it is with regret that the Committee decided the 2020 Shooting Ratings will be cancelled in line with other affected KUSA and FTLC events.

This year we have an additional challenge in that a marathon race will be held at the Saheti school and a lot of the roads in the area will be closed. One road in particular will be the road in front of Goldfields, so to get into Goldfields, the bottom gate will need to be used.

There are several routes to the lower gate:

Option 1

Click to see the map

This is the route a lot of people use, come in on the R24 towards Eastgate, take the Concorde offramp and then turn left into the first road and then immediately left again – follow this road until you get to Vand der Linde Road and drive over the R24 using the Van der Linde Road bridge. Normally one would turn right towards Goldfields, but instead you turn left and then at the boom turn right into Batten Road – follow Batten Road until its end and then turn right into Munday Avenue which you follow until you get to the bottom gate of Goldfields

Option 2

Click to see the map

Come in on the R24 towards Eastgate, take the Concorde offramp and then turn left into the first road (Arbroath) and then turn right into Viscount Road. Then just before the entrance to Eastgate turn right into Bradford Road and go underneath the R24. The road turns into Rivier Road and you follow Rivier Road until you turn right into Munday Road. Then follow Munday road until you get to the Goldfields bottom gate

Option 3

Click to see the map

Come in on the R24 and at the first traffic light turn right into Marcia Street. Then at the first traffic light at the Chinese market turn right into Ernest Oppenheimer Avenue. Turn right into Vernon at the BP garage and then immediately left into Boeing Road West. Then follow the road until you get to a boom on the left and turn into Batten Road – follow Batten Road until its end and then turn right into Munday Avenue which you follow until you get to the bottom gate of Goldfields
