Our family’s experience with DeMille Blue Bloods and the Great Weim breed has been far more than we had hoped for! Heather is professional and genuinely concerned about the animals she breeds. Before the puppies were old enough to take home, she sent us pictures and stayed in touch to keep us posted on the puppies progress. During the first few weeks/months of getting our puppy, she was always attentive to questions and willing to help! She still stays in touch with puppy owners after nearly a year of becoming a puppy owner.
We previously had a purebred Weimeraner for 13 years, so we knew high energy! When we were ready for our next dog we knew we wanted another large breed that was outgoing and would fit into our active lifestyle, but knew the purebred Weim was a little more that we wanted to tackle again. The most noticeable differences we love in our Great Weim, Kona, is his ability to be fun and active, but settle down when its time. He has much more impulse control than our Weim. He will rule the roost if allowed too, so structure, discipline and lots of training have been key. Exercise is another must for this breed. Kona walks/runs with me everyday – rain, shine or snow. We weren’t great at this with our last dog, so I think the more mellow nature of the Dane, along with a better exercise routine have both contributed to Kona’s near perfect behavior. Truth be told, we have lost a few shoes and stuffed animals, a couple of dog beds (after being kenneled for 9+ hours – our bad), and an unattended cake on the counter, so he’s not perfect, but his excitement to see us and puppy kisses make up for all of that! Kona goes with us everywhere – the park, hiking, kids baseball games, dog friendly stores! During the day, he is in a crate – very large crate so be prepared – and at night he sleeps on a dog bed in our room (OK, he is sometimes on our bed too, but it’s hard to resist because he is such a cuddler). Large breed, Active, Trainable, Loyal & Loving - Great with kids & other dogs (big or small) -
Great Weim – is the perfect breed for us and we are so happy we found DeMille Blue Bloods!
