Welcome to Elaine
and Tim Carwile's Weimaraner Homepage. We
appreciate your taking the time to visit! We live, with our dogs, in
Our kennel name, "Kanati", is from the Cherokee Indian language and is roughly translated "first hunter" or "lucky hunter". Given our goals for our breed and our geographical location, the name seemed a natural fit!
We are committed to promoting the incredible versatility of Weimaraners. We believe that one can, indeed, "have your cake and eat it, too"--- that is, you can breed a show-quality dog with good temperament that excels in the field.
Elaine is an obedience/rally training instructor, breed handler and is very active in AKC tracking, having put TD titles on both Trisha and Atty.
Tim served on the Board of Directors of the Weimaraner Club of America and, for four years (2006-2009), as its President; he is also an AKC-approved pointing breed field trial and hunt test judge, handles in AKC field trials and hunting tests as well as Weimaraner Shooting Dog and Retrieving ratings and is a frequent contributor to AKC field publications. He is also approved by the American Field as a field trial judge. In the spring of 2009, he served as the Co-Chair for the AKC's Pointing Breed Gun Dog Championships held at Fred Leggett's beautiful Cloverdale Farms near Danville, Virginia.
We are also members of the Weimaraner Club of America, the Tarheel Weimaraner Club, Commonwealth Dog Obedience Training Club and the American Kennel Club.

Kanati Weimaraners' last litter was whelped on July 16, 2006!! We are really excited about these puppies. There were 3 girls and 1 boy. The parents are "Sophie" (U-CD, BISS, Ch. Kanati's Wild At Heart, CD/JH/RN/CGC/NSD/V/ASCA-CD) and "Rogue" (FC/AFC Aztec's Midnight Shift). Sophie earned all her obedience and rally titles in 3 straight shows, was shown to her conformation championship and specialed for 10 months and made it to # 2 Best of Breed Weimaraners before being retired after Westminister 2002. She is a natural backer and is very stylish on point.
Rogue was the # 2 Weimaraner All-Age/Gun Dog in April,2008. He won the 2003 WCA National Futurity in Ardmore, Oklahoma and, in 2004, the Eastern Gun Dog Classic in Medford, New Jersey. He earned his Field Championship in 2005 and his Amateur Field Championship in May, 2010. Notably, Rogue is regularly placing in all-breed field trials.
Lucy and Annie both took Best of Breed in May and June, 2008, respectively, and Lucy has her Derby points!
