Our Story...

 We are Michelle and Stan Nowacki and we are located in Batavia, Ohio, on the east side of Cincinnati. We live on 5 fenced country acres, chosen for the dogs, of course! Our dogs live with us in our house as part of our family. They DO NOT live their lives in kennel runs, and are first and foremost our companions.


Zauberhaft, which means “Magical” in German, is what we believe Weimaraners to be. The goal of our breeding program is Versatility - upholding the origins of this beautiful breed. The photos throughout the site showcase our dogs’ skills.

We have participated in AKC field trials, hunt tests, tracking tests, rally & obedience trials, WCA ratings tests, and NAVHDA Natural Ability tests.  Our next competition adventures will be in AKC Agility, and possibly NAVHDA Utility testing.

Our dogs also participate in, and have excelled in, conformation events. The overall structure of the dog plays a role in its ability to perform as intended. To that end, the breeder’s goal should be to support the AKC breed standard developed by the Weimaraner Club of America. 

Michelle has been involved with animals since she was a child, through 4-H and other organizations. She trained her first obedience and Jr. showmanship dog, the family Dalmation named Duchess, as a young teenager. 
As an adult, she purchased her first Weimaraner in 1998, “Anja”, who eventually became AKC/CKC/UKC Gr Ch Grayangel Little Zephanja MH, SD, NRD, CGC, VX, who is the foundation of Zauberhaft Weimaraners.

When Stan met Michelle he was quickly indoctrinated into the Weimaraner Way and has become a great Weimaraner Dad. The Zauberhaft tradition of versatility, brains, beauty, and birdiness continues...!

We are members in good standing of The Weimaraner Club of America, The Greater Cincinnati Weimaraner Club, and The Queen City Dog Training Club.  Our breeding program takes into consideration various health screenings, overall hunting ability, temperament, performance aptitude, and conformation. Each breeding is thoroughly researched in order to meet our goals. We do breed infrequently, so please visit the ‘Puppies’ page for the timing of the next planned breeding.
