Dog Weathervane – Weimaraner on Point

Weimaraner Weathervane - With Optional Shotgun

Horizontal Copper Tube

Flushing Pheasant Weathervane

Flushing Pheasant Weathervane

This copper Weimaraner Weathervane was originally commissioned by a hunter who not only sent us photos of his Weimaraner but also of his prized shotgun. He was building a new home and guest house. On the main house he put his large sized pointing dog weathervane. On the guest house he put a medium sized Flushing Pheasant Weathervane. From anywhere on his property, you can see the two weathervanes interacting in the wind.

While the featured weathervane pictured here shows the dog standing on a shotgun, we offer a more traditional Weimaraner Vane with a standard horizontal copper tube representing the ground. If desired, we can add an half arrow tip and fletching or optional grasses or reeds to create a more lifelike setting. We would be happy to provide pricing for either of these options. Just give us a call or send us an email for a quote.

The Weimaraner is a silver-grey breed of dog developed originally both for tracking game, such as birds, and as a pointing breed. The name comes from the Grand Duke of Weimar, Charles August, whose court enjoyed hunting. Today’s breed standards developed in the 1800s, although the Weimaraner has existed since at least the 1600s in a similar form. It is believed that Continental pointing breeds and mastiffs were its ancestors. The breed was created strictly for the nobility. The aim was to create a noble-looking, reliable gundog. As ownership was restricted, the breed was highly prized and lived with the family. This was unusual, as during this period, hunting dogs were kept in kennels in packs.
