All TRAX dogs undergo an extensive Puppy Evaluation process, it takes about three days to complete and it encompasses detailed assessment of field ability, temperament and conformation traits. The test results are used to match puppies to their homes and to identify potential candidates for the TRAX breeding program.

Weimaraners are an active breed, needing lengthy periods of daily exercise, particularly between 1-3 years of age. They tend to be very bonded to and protective of their family. If raised with cats or other types of household pets they generally can happily co-exist with them. Outdoors on walks or hikes Weimaraners tend to stay in close touch with their owners, however, they will have to be trained not to chase wildlife like squirrels or deer.
Trax Weimaraners is a network of like minded breeders and competitors with Shirley Nilsson as head coach. Together, the Trax team strives to produce healthy, talented, beautiful working Weimaraners with a particular focus on producing dogs that can attain Dual Championships. To that end Trax puppies undergo an extensive Puppy Evaluation process that encompasses detailed assessment of field ability, temperament and conformation traits. The test results are used to match puppies to their homes and to identify potential candidates for the TRAX breeding program.
By winning all breed and national juvenile field trial stakes several of the Trax youngsters have declared themselves forces to be reckoned with. Luther and Tearin’ showed the necessary ambition and application to win blue ribbons in Puppy stakes and Fiona won 3 Derby level stakes, but it was Ivy that showed them all who is boss with 3 Derby stake wins capped off by a spectacular performance to win the WCA National Field Futurity. Better yet, showing how these ambitious kids will work for anyone, many of their blue ribbons, including the National Futurity win, happened with guest handlers at the helm. Special thanks goes out to amateurs Anabel Schafnit, Terry Meek, Carlos DeTavis and Lisa DeLeonardo for their handling help.
Kudos go out this month to the super talented Trax trackers that have all accurately followed 3+ hour old tracks set over hill and dale, through ditches and forests, along the way indicating dropped articles and turning a blind eye to the diversionary fresher cross tracks set as a temptation across the correct path. Recently attaining AKC Tracking Dog Excellent titles are Rye and Reese and recently acquiring CKC Tracking Dog Excellent titles are Tegan and Gunther. Notably, Rye passed this challenging test while still a yearling and Reese and Tegan share the same handler. Congratulations to all of these super duper tracking teams.
Hats are off this month to some of the Trax dogs that have soared to success in advanced level agility competition. Athletic lover boy Andy notched an AKC MACH 2 Agility Championship, the superstar Connor surfed his way to an AKC Masters Jumpers Excellent title on a sea of blue ribbons, the speedster Tacoma tore up the courses for AKC Agility Excellent and Masters Excellent Jumpers titles, the lithe Taylor raced her way to AKC Agility Excellent and Agility Excellent Jumpers titles and in Canada Nikitta is sprinting her way through Advanced and Masters level titles. Congratulations to these tremendous athletes and their human pilots.
