Brittany search

I just found out this morning that I won’t be getting a Britt as anticipated. Mother gave birth yesterday and there were not enough males for us to bring one home. Now I’m left searching for a new kennel with hopefully pups on the ground, or a litter coming soon. Hoping you guys can help out.

Here are my requirements: family friendly, weekend hunter. This will be a house dog. The parents need to be OFA hip certified. We’d prefer a male, but intimately it really doesn't matter.

So, does anyone know of kennels in the Midwest or Plains states that have pups on the ground or expected litters this spring? I’m all ears! I’m located in WI and willing to travel up to 10 hours.

You might want to open up your search to other breeds- if you can find a good, local breeder their knowledge and networking can be worth gold to someone getting their first gun dog.
Many local hunt tests in next few months to get out and see the different styles of dogs and talk to owners. Good luck.

You have time.

Gender does matter, I guess. My most tractable dogs have been females. I live in the country and the males--intact or not--wanted to roam. They weren't running away, they were investigating. The females would hang around the house, even if I had to run to town for stuff.

Best wishes. Going to be fun.

I just had a 3 tr old French Britt that I re homed because she wouldn't stay home !! Spent her nights on my lap in front of the TV. Got to the point I was being ignored! We went to public land and she was a peach but not around home ! Had to go as she was going to get hit by a car ! She is now a kennel dog.

Thank you for the tips guys. I have three kennels in mind. If I don’t get a pup by late summer, I’ll wait until spring 2022.

Some of the AKC "tournament" breeders want you to sign a contract saying you must spay or neuter your dog. They are off my list immediately. That decision is mine.

I have been fortunate that all my Britts have pointed birds naturally. Some whoa yard work, but they all have pretty much froze in-place on first and subsequent exposure. An occassional charge in if visual contact is made.

Never used a pigeon and have not used a holder/thrower since dog #2 (and even then others had, but I preferred not to use).
