Please refer to the information on the home page, as well as the contact OwyheeStar page for information on how to proceed. No matter what, the formal application will need to be completed. If you are in a hurry to find a pup, the best approach is to write and ask if there are pups currently available.
During the year, you can expect Cliff and Shela to raise several litters. How many is going to depend on the demand. They sometimes need to breed for their own purposes. One reason a mating may occur with a certain pair is to get offspring the breeder needs for the future. A breeder who is working toward improving the breed, will be fine-tuning their choices, and weaving the DNA in hope of getting something extraordinary. This process takes years, but is carefully planned.
Cliff and Shela also raise the Longhair Weimaraner. They have a waiting list of applicants wanting specific traits. These vary, but are usually associated with coat color, coat length, and pockets of ability. For example, the hunter will want a hunt-potential pup, that shows an ability to train for the field. Depending upon the terrain, and type of birds, there may be other specific requests--size, again coat, and possibly a strong-sense-of-scent.
OwyheeStar uses a Discovery and Placement test for the purpose of making discovery. There are pockets of greatness, and a glimpse of these special abilities can make matching the pup to the best possible placement easier. The process they employ has been proven very effective, and yes, it does require a lot of trust. Nevertheless, over the years many have found Cliff and Shela to be invested in doing what is best all the way around.
