About Us

We were first introduced to the Weimaraner in 1982 when we collected our first puppy from Ray Sharpe of the Miroku Kennel – Miroku Inka, Inka as she was known, was only a pet but she opened the flood gates to the next 30 years of owning, showing, working and breeding this beautiful breed and, yes, today we are still captivated by the “Grey Ghost”.

As you can imagine over the years we have experienced many highs and lows but have always considered ourselves very privileged to have shared our lives with this wonderful breed.

We are now located in Sherwood Forest (heaven on earth for the Weimaraner) and we quite enjoy it too!!

And so it began……. The Wipfel affix was granted in 1987 and over the years we have endeavoured to develop our understanding of this beautiful but very demanding breed and our kennel is now well known for producing Weimaraners of excellent type, temperament and the preferred silver grey colour. We are extremely proud of the Wipfel dogs out there either, showing, working or just playing and fulfilling their roles as loyal family members.

Ann is a Kennel Club Assured Breeder and also with Tony, her husband, are members of The Weimaraner Club of Great Britain, N.E.W.S, Hungarian Vizsla Society, Norfolk & Suffolk HPR Club, Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer Club, HPR Breeds Club and Hon Members of The Weimaraner Association.
