Welcome to the WCWDCA website!


The Weimaraner Club of the Washington DC Area (WCWDCA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1954 to promote the purebred Weimaraner and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection.  As part of that mission, we conduct the following activities:

  • AKC Field Trials in Spring and Fall

  • AKC Specialty Shows, Obedience and Rally Trials in April 

  • Additional Specialties and/or Supported Entry shows are in October

  • AKC All-Breed Agility Trials in May and August

  • AKC Hunt Tests in Fall and Spring

  • WCA Retrieving Ratings every September

  • WCA Shooting Ratings in the Fall or Spring

  • Field Training Sessions during the summer

General membership meetings are throughout the year; the Annual Awards Meeting is usually in February and the Annual Picnic is in June or July.  The other membership meetings are held in conjunction with club events and meeting dates will be posted on the website.
