"Silvahunter Weimaraners" was established by John and Elizabeth Harding and is based in Melbourne, Australia. Our kennel was developed through the love of great working dogs that not only looked good but also displayed the full traditional aspects of breed type, exceptional temperament and hunting instincts.
Since the mid 1980's John & Liz have also bred some litters under the "Jujondy" prefix (litters bred under this prefix are rare and usually only occur when John retains a dog for himself).

We have always maintained that our dogs are members of our family - they are never kennelled at night and always get to sleep in our house.

Whilst our predominate breed is the "Weimaraner"  we were privileged to be owned by the most loving Labrador Retriever that belonged to our son "Nic" for over 10 years. Liz's sister - Susan McKay has also been
part of the Silvahunter family team with her German Shorthaired Pointers. Through our combined interest in these 3 gundog breeds we have gained an understanding of the demands of the Continental Pointing dog whilst still recognizing the basic but functional working ability of the retriever.

Our involvement with the Dobermann breed has occured through Liz's long standing friendship with Shayne Ramsay (who has previously owned some of Australia's top winning Weimaraners & GSP's
). Liz spends many hours with Shayne's Dobes and is now quite taken with the "Black & Brown" crew - they are quite like our Weimaraners but with a lot more sharpness and awareness in temperament.

Our website also includes a page for our son's rescue dog - a working border collie - who has completely taken over our whole house. He is continually herding the ducks on the lake and the Weimaraners in their excercise yard. We have also taken the liberty of including some of our interests - including boating, travelling around Australia & overseas. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit this website.
