In the field and on the hunt
Many Greydove Weimaraners, when given the opportunity, have shown their natural ability to perform in the field as well as in the show ring. Two of the dogs photographed below have achieved All Breeds Best in Show wins in their respective countries (Sweden and South Africa) whilst at the same time proving they have the natural ability in the field to perform what is innate in the breed – hunting, retrieving and tracking.
Pictured on this page are a photos of some of our dogs showing their natural abilities.
