WCA Hall of Fame 2018
Gunnar was one of those once in a lifetime dogs, if I asked him to do something, he was always willing and eager to please. He was as smart as they come too and I swear he was able to read my mind at times. We traveled the country together attending shows and trials and Gunnar was my loyal protector and was always riding shotgun.
Gunnar’s Accomplishments speak for themselves! He was amateur owner trained and handled throughout his entire show and field career. He finished his FC at the tender age of 2 competing in mostly all-breed stakes. A couple more field highlights were placing 2nd at the Nationals and winning Regional trials. He was Ranked # 2 All-Age Gun Dog in 1997 and stayed on the Top 10 Gun Dog list throughout his trialing career. Gunnar made History when he became the first Weimaraner to be crowned a NAVHDA Versatile Champion (VC)! He was bred sparingly and his offspring include two Dual Champions, several Champion/Master Hunters, many bench Champions and Hunt Test titled get. He also sired many NAVHDA Natural Ability Breeders Award litters and Utility Prized dogs.
