Long-Hair Weimaraners

                     
                                          

FACTS ABOUT THE LONGHAIR WEIMS:


  • Both Blue and Silver (Grey) Long Hair Weimaraners are registrable with the American Kennel Club.
  • Our four Longhair Weims (2 silver & 2 blue) are AKC registered dogs. 
  • All Longhair Weim puppies produced here at Chatham Hill Ranch are registered with the AKC.


Long Hair Weimaraners have been around from the beginning. The gene is recessive, so they are not as commonly found as the Weimaraners, though in Germany where the breed originates they are just a popular as the Weimaraners.

The coat type is obviously an asset in Germany by withstanding the colder climate. The breed standard is the same as for a Weimaraner, except for the length of coat and the
fact that they do not have their tails docked. The Long Hairs coat as a mature adult is one and a half to two inches long, with extra feathering around the tail and legs. The tail coverage is excellent protection in the field. The coat is easy to manage and free flowing and does not mat or shed to the same extent as most coated dogs.

We have fallen in love with the Weimaraner---the Long-Hair Weimaraner, that is....not the short hair weim. If you read the history of the Long-Hair Weimaraner you will find out the that the only country that does not accept the Long Hair Weim in the Kennel Club show ring is America. We here at Chatham Hill--love to go against the "norm" in the dog world--as we do with the Yellow Flatcoat....therefore, we like to take it upon ourselves and intentionally have the Long Hair Weimaraner. 

We have silver(grey) Weims and blue Weims.
 
Some breeders haveLongHairs pop up in their litters. And unfortunately some breeders didn't recognize that a pup was a longhair, so they docked the tail on their longhair puppy!  But we know when you breed two longhair Weims--you only get LongHair pups, so if we have any pups in the future will have long, feathery tails. 

 Males are approximately 25-27 inches in height at the withers (shoulder); while females are 23-25 inches. The breed is athletic and not heavy for its height - Weimaraner males average 70-85 pounds with females typically weighing between 55-65 pounds. Some perfectly healthy Weims can weigh as little as fifty pounds. Eye color is anything from light amber to deep blue to grey.
