PET • SHOW • WORKING
LET ME INTRODUCE US
My name is Marie and I live in Nottingham with my husband Wayne. I am a registered head Veterinary Nurse and have worked in small animal practice since 1992. Since 2002 I worked as a volunteer in the evenings at a local dog training club where I quickly progressed from helper to a full trainer. I left the training club in 2010 and with a friend Bev we opened our own dog training club called In Line Dog Training (www.inlinedogtraining.co.uk). Through my Veterinary Nursing I also hold a nursing certificate in animal behaviour. I am also very involved in the working gundog and run HPR training groups and have judged at gundog working tests. I have also qualified to judge both KC Rally and the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme upto Gold standards.
IN THE BEGINNING
When I was young I was not allowed a pet bigger than a rabbit...... so after the fish, hamsters, mice, gerbils, birds, rabbits, stick insects and guinea pigs (not including the many different species of wildlife that I nursed and released) I managed to convince, my grandmother who I lived with at the time to let me have a cat. BUT.... the passion for owning a dog was always with me. I used to wait at the bottom of the garden for a gentleman who walked an Irish Wolfhound named digger everyday past our house, whatever the weather he walked his dog and whatever the weather I would wait to say Hello.
I decided then that I would, as soon as I could, live with and own animals, especially dogs.... By default, and a lot of persuasion, I was allowed to own my first dog just after I started work as a Veterinary Nurse. A neighbour had a Rottweiler bitch giving birth and she started to have difficulties, I assisted using my nursing skills and after a few weeks I knew one of the litter would be mine, and Mama knew too.
Shantie came to live with us and over her short life, she taught me a lot about dogs and more about people's perception of dogs. Shantie was the calmest and most loving, friendly dog in the world but she was a Rottweiler and people reflected this when they met her. We lost her at a young age to cancer, I was devastated. She taught me that tomorrow doesn't always come, so live for today
MEINWEGS ARE PART OF THE FAMILY
BRED FOR TYPE AND STANDARD, DOING WELL IN THE RING
FIT FOR FUNCTION IN THE FIELD
SO WHY MEINWEG AS A NAME?
When you get to know me, then you will know I never follow a crowd, why miss out on things you want to do just in case it doesn't fit in with other peoples views? My Grandparents have given me a great start in my life and brought me up to have my own views and to know my strengths and weaknesses and to have the knowledge to work and change all.
When I grew up, our family spent a lot of time in Germany, the Weimaraner is a German breed so is the Rottweiler. I searched a translation site and started typing different things when I typed "MY WAY" to which the translation is "MEINWEG"
And so it stuck
I have held the Affix since 2008
Breeding Weimaraner's which are fit for function, in the family home, with temperament at the foremost.
