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.

About our Judge:
 
Our Judge for the Weimaraner Klub Championship Show 2018 is Mr Adrian Rutland, who is 67 years old and a retired operational fire officer. He and his wife began their involvement with Weimaraners in 1982 when they obtained their first bitch and started the kennel called Khamsynn Weimaraners.
 
In his own words:
 
We bred our first litter in 1984. In all we have bred 12 litters totalling 80 puppies. We only bred a litter when we wanted another dog to show. Our dogs have always lived in the house with us and we have never rehomed any.
 
I started working our Weimaraners to the gun in 1986. I have worked them in the beating line at driven shoots, for picking up & as a general rough shooting dog. I was a member of a shooting syndicate for many years and my dogs always worked with me. I trained them to Field Trial standard and competed at a small number of trials with some success. Unfortunately I had to give up working the dogs a few years ago due to an ankle injury.
 
Our main involvement with the breed has been in the show environment. We started showing in 1983 and have owned a total of 14 Weimaraners, 4 of whom are still with us. We have bred or made up 9 Show Champions to date. We currently show 3 bitches all of whom are now Show Champions. Of the puppies that we have bred 23 have achieved Kennel Club Stud Book status. Achieving Show Champion status under the UK system is far more difficult than in many other countries.
 
I started judging Weimaraners at open show level in 1988. In 1997 I was approved by the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates and did so in November that year for the first time. I have since awarded CC’s at a further 6 shows and I was contracted to judge Weimaraners at Crufts in March 2018. In my early days I judged all gundog breeds up to and including group level at open shows. I decided that my prime interest was in Weimaraners and have not pursued judging of other breeds in recent years though obviously taking an interest in all of them as we attend shows on an almost weekly basis. Without reference to my records I would estimate that I have judged in excess of 1,000 dogs, the vast majority being Weimaraners and mostly at championship show level.
 
I am firmly of the opinion that judges have a responsibility to ensure the future well-being of the breed. I take that responsibility very seriously and always judge without fear or favour to preserve the Weimaraner as laid down in the breed standard.
 
We have devoted our lives (& an awful lot of cash!) to the Weimaraner for the last 36 years. It has brought us considerable pleasure & inevitably some pain. Lesley & I feel we have done our bit to improve the breed over this time & hope to be around for a few more years to see a bright future for the breed.

Additional Shooting Ratings and Hunt Presentation

Because this year we have a German Championship Show Judge who is also a Hunting Test Judge in Germany, we would like to hold a second Shooting Ratings this year to coincide with Mrs Tanja Breu-Knaup’s visit to the country.
 
Mrs Breu-Knaup will be holding a presentation about Hunting and Hunt Tests the afternoon. Anyone can attend the presentation without entering any of the Ratings tests. Cost of attendance is a lunch ticket, so you do not need to bring a dog or enter a test to attend the presentation
It will as always be held at Oppiedam near Nigel on 23rd September 2017 – this is the weekend after the Championship Show.
We will only be hosting a limited number of tests this time – only Novice Retriever Dog and Retriever Dog, which will take place the morning, and then after lunch there will be a presentation by Mrs Breu-Knaup on hunting and hunting tests in Germany
We need to organize the following before then:1) Arrange for birds for the tests
2) Arrange for catering

your input as to how many people will be attending and how many dogs
will be entering in each test.

1) How many dogs will you be entering?
2) In which tests will you be entering the dogs?
3) How many additional people, if any, will be joining you for lunch?

Because we get the use of the venue for free, we are required to make
use of the catering and cash bar for the day. Therefore we require
each handler of a dog to also pay for lunch. Cost of the catering on
the day will be R150 per person, which will also include coffee and
sandwiches on arrival.

Novice Retrieving Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered
Retrieving Dog: Club Members – R150, Non-members – R200 per dog entered
