RUN LIKE THE WIND, STAND LIKE A ROCK
We have been involved with Brittany's since 1995. My first Brittany was purchased as a hunting/family companion, and "pet" for our Golden Retriever, as he was lonely when I returned to school full time in 1995. It didn't take long before I knew I wanted to help sustain and hopefully improve the integrity, health, temperament and hunting instinct of this wonderful breed. Our goal is to produce HEALTHY, SOUND, TEMPERAMENTALLY STABLE, NATURAL HUNTERS, and we guarantee our puppies to be just that. I have produced several top winning Show and Field titled Brittany's. Including several who have been in the top 25 in the country.
Brittany's are a wonderful breed, suitable for active family's and sportsmen. They weigh approximately 30-45 lbs, have a medium coat length, and are very active. Life expectancy is 12-16 years. They do best with a fenced yard and a family that can spend time with them every day. They travel well and are extremely social. They tend to have soft temperaments and require a gentle, fair and consistent trainer. They can become bored if left alone too long and bored Brittany's can become barkers, diggers and chewers.

Known since the mid 19th century in the French province by the same name, the Brittany is the smallest of the versatile gun dogs. Though spaniel-sized (average 30 - 45 lbs), the Brittany is a pointing breed, not a spaniel. The Brittany points and holds his game, and retrieves both on land and in water. He is used primarily on upland game in the United States, but is used on both fur and feather in France.
The Brittany is a dog without extremes. This is a compact, closely knit dog of medium size, able to cover ground with agility. A Brittany's medium-length coat is flat or wavy, and may be colored orange & white, liver & white, or tri-colored, in clear or roan patterns.
There are more Dual Champion (field & show) Brittanys than all other Sporting breeds combined. The Brittany is carefully bred to retain this dual purpose: Ideally, he should be able to hunt one day, have a bath and compete in the show ring the next day. Brittanys are known for having a keen nose and a very biddable disposition; they bond and work closely with their human partners. This allows the Brittany's success in field trials, hunting tests, conformation shows, obedience trials, agility trials, tracking tests, and about anything else they are given a chance at. The Brittany is easily handled, but sensitive if treated harshly.
When not enjoying the sporting life, the Brittany can content himself at home as family pet and guardian. This is a fun-loving, energetic, friendly, gentle and affectionate breed, known to be patient and trustworthy with children. Intelligent and eager to please, with daily exercise the Brittany makes an excellent family pet and companion.
