Upland adventure and limitless memories await...
There is nothing more special than the unique balance of peacefulness and excitement found behind a quality bird dog. All stress seems to dissipate as you unload your attentive partner from his crate and place the shotgun over your shoulder. It may be a cold, crisp morning with seemingly every surface glistening with frost and a soft crunch below your boots. Perhaps it is among the pines where you are met with a light breeze and the golden grasses lazily dancing to and fro in cadence; a hushed version of nature's metronome. Your dog moves quickly, excitedly, with fluid yet animated motion combing cover and feed strip or perhaps casting widely to a field edge. He's on a mission. He knows why he's in that field, he's hardwired to do this job at a deeply instinctual level. You are part of this, you are on his team, and he yours. Up ahead you see him standing staunchly - head and tail held high. As you near you can feel the excitement and see the intensity in your dog. Every fibrous muscle seems to vibrate in anticipation, his tail quivers every so slightly. Your heartbeat quickens as you approach him and begin the flushing attempt with him at attention. All the sudden, from the ground explodes a rooster cackling as he burst into flight. A shot is fired, time moves so quickly yet so slowly as you notice intricate feathers dancing through the air falling gracefully to the ground. You snap back to attention and see your dog is in pursuit making quick work of locating the bird and hastily, but ever so carefully, returning the bird to you. As he approaches you can see his sense of pride and accomplishment on a job well done. He releases the bird into your hard and you take a moment to admire the impossibly iridescent feathers and the elegantly long tail. You thank this bird for his life, this hunt, and these memories that will last lifetime. That evening your dog quietly curls up with you on your favorite chair and gazes into your eyes. At this moment you realize he's not just a dog. It's not just a hunt.
Our started puppies begin as a planned premium litter following our cornerstone values of proven ability, temperament, health, conformation and pedigree. The pups we retain are selected for their exceptional representation of our breeding program values. If you would prefer, we also do allow for you to select your own litter and pup then chose to keep the pup with us to enter into our custom started dog program
Puppies are maintained on a premium diet and receive comprehensive preventative healthcare. The puppies are extremely well socialized and spend their first few months growing up and becoming accustomed to various aspects of life in the home and field. They can be expected to go on walks with us on foot, horseback, or with an RTV just to softly train handling. No corners are cut to get your puppy off on the right foot.
Pups are typically entered into a formal training program under a full-time professional trainer at about 5-6 months of age. We team with a trainer that we feel would be most suitable to the pup's temperament. Typically our started dogs are very well started on basic commands, retrieving to hand, and are green steady. Occasionally we have more seasoned dogs available.
Tipsy is a sweet dog with incredible conformation. She was selected from another very reputable breeder but is not quite a fit for our program. She would excel in AKC conformation and also would make a nice agility or other sporting type dog. Tipsy would be an excellent family companion as well. She is mild mannered in the home and a more submissive type dog. She's housebroken and would truly make a wonderful companion. Excellent manners off leash and a sweet, willing dog!

Shelby is a great little dog that can go in numerous directions but we don't feel is going to make a top field trial prospect. She is a great hunting prospect, sporting, or companion. Shelby is bred very well and out of well known and respected midwest lines that you won't find much on the east coast. She has an excellent temperament and can go in any direction.

Jeff is the happiest young Brittany ever. He was born here with a congenital deformation of his spine which is common in French bulldogs and pugs but definitely not Brittanys. It is called hemivertebrae so he has a malformed vertebrae. This has NOT impacted him at all aside he looks just a little different and his gait is unique. He was a fighter as a puppy and we opted to give him the opportunity- to grow up, monitor closely and give him a chance. Well, he's done amazing and totally exceeded our expectations. Not only is he an active pup who hasn't missed a beat but I swear he has the most amazing personality. He has a truly effervescent personality - he's eternally happy and just makes us smile ALL THE TIME. He has two young male Brittanys now which are his best buds and he loves roughhousing with them. Nothing stops this little dude and he's truly a STUNNING dog. We aren't in a rush to place him as we are really quite fond our guy but would love to find him a very special home that can give him all the attention he deserves. He has never had or shown us any complication from this aside if he plays a lot outside we can notice he tires a bit easier than a "normal" dog. I have no doubt he would love to be a bird dog but we'd like to place him as a pet as we baby him quite a bit LOL!
