How does one measure success in ones field of interest?
In my case this field is breeding and exhibiting Weimaraners.
Is it how many champions have been bred?
I have bred 24 conformation titles.
Is it obedience?
I have bred 11 C.D., 3 C.D.X., 1 U.D., 1 T.D. and 4 E.T. Award holders.
Is it how successful these Weimaraners are in competition?
I have bred, at all breeds level, winners of Best In Show, runner up Best In show, Best In Group, Class In Group, Class In Show and BOB awards.
Is it a question of number of exports?
I have exported to the following countries, Holland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sweden and New Zealand. And in 2002 I add to this list America. In total 15 Britfeld bred Weimaraners have been exported as at 26th September, 2009.
Is it a question of semen export?
I have done this too. First in 1993 to Norway and in 2002 to ¹Hungary.
What is left?
I shall wait as my wonderful journey with this beautiful breed continues to unfold. I would however like to thank all the wonderful owners, local, interstate and international, for their belief in my ability to consistently breed Weimaraners which exemplify the breed standard; who have proven to be competitive in their field of endeavour and continue to set new bench marks for others to follow.
¹ Australian Champion Britfeld Precision Made C.D. was bred by Britfeld Weimaraners and owned by Feldjaeger Weimaraners. The exporting of his semen has been a joint venture and I extend my gratitude to Feldjaeger Weimaraners for the opportunity to export Britfeld bloodlines to Hungary.
