Submitted by: Marshall Gooch on Nov 06, 2010Miki, who is 13 mo.s old, is my 4th hunting Brittany and is showing all the natural abilities of a fine hunting dog. At 5 mo.s, she was pointing and chasing birds in the yard and also retrieving. Recently, she has surprised me with her knack for finding birds. While walking her on leash, she pulled me across the yard, but I didn't see anything until she flushed 2 mountain doves from the bushes. Another time we were in the open when she froze and pointed to the sky. I wondered what for, but when I looked up, there were birds on the overhead power line. With her nose she picks up birds in trees and tracks feral chickens. Miki is an offspring of Christine's dogs, Rio and Dina. Christine preserves the hunting instinct in her dog's temperament and she reinforces it with training. I've been waiting to get Miki in the field, but unfortunately our hunting area is in a severe drought and is closed because of fire hazard. So for now, Miki is a congenial new family member and a pretty girl excelling in the show ring.
Submitted by: matt on Nov 01, 2010We recently, I guess it has been a year now, went through Christine and added a member to our family, Tucker. He is perhaps, one of the calmest brittanys that I have ever come accross. He is great around our children, wonderful around strangers, and here is the amazing thing our Brittany rarely even barks. I originally went through Christine, because I was looking for a dog that would be good around the house and that I could take hunting, as this is one of my principal activities. With her dogs show ring pedigrees, the good around the house wasn't my biggest concern. I was more than pleasantly surprised when he quickly began succeeding in the field. Calm at home, but so much energy in the field, that he can compete at a champion level. We started him on birds at a very young age, and at just over one year old, he is by far the best all purpose bird dog, I have ever owned. Look forward to many years of hunting with him.
Submitted by: Steve Dana on Feb 24, 2008My first ever Brittany, Rusty, was from a litter bred and nurtured by Christine Gourley. I've had various breeds of bird dogs all my life and decided I wanted to down-size my hunting dog, but I also wanted a dog that could hunt upland game birds as well as the bigger breeds. I've not been disappointed in the Brittany, he is a wonderful pet, doesn't bark, and is as energetic and enthusiastic at hunting as my German Shorthair (she is currently 13 and retired from hunting, but still loves to teach the young dog new tricks). Although I bought Rusty as a hunting dog, Christine told me he had show potential, and asked if she could show him. I reluctantly agreed and Rusty won his fist show at six months and went on to finish before his first birthday with four major wins.
If you want a quality Brittany, for hunting and/or show, I highly recommend GourleyBrittanys.
Submitted by: Shaun Anna on Feb 22, 2008I've been around and hunted with Brittanys for over 25 years. So, I new exactly what I wanted in my next one. While doing research with various breeders I met Christine Gourley of Gourley's Brittanys. It did'nt take long for me to realize that I'd found the breeder I was looking for.
Christine asked all the right questions and gave all the right answers. After our interview she helped me find the perfect hunting companion/pet that I could ever hope for. I found her to be quite knowledgeable, very proffessional and real easy to work with. Both, before and after I recieved my pup. She has remained accessable, and helpful to me when I have questions or need advice. Christine is very conscious and aware of what good breeding means and what it takes to achive. I take comfort in knowing that she is out there doing what it takes for the Brittnay Spanial to reach its highest potential. After all, the "Brittany" is the perfect dog! In my opinion.
My pups papered name is "Gourley's Alaskan Jade". We call her "Jade". She is one year, six months old. We just finished her first season on wild birds. She did great! Full of desire, obedient, sweet and loving as well. And is the prettiest thing too. What else can I say? Give Christine a call you'll be glad you did. I sure am.
Submitted by: Chris Fenner on Feb 18, 2008We are the proud owners of Gourley's Dreams Of Buried Treasure - our beloved "Arrow". He's a great looking pup of 10 months that is starting his hunt training. He's very birdy and should be a great bird dog!
Christine has been a great help as a breeder. She genuinely cares about the dogs she breeds and follows up with us regarding Arrows growth and training. She's been a definate asset to have in Arrow's development and our own as dog owners.
Submitted by: Ann Farinas on Feb 17, 2008I own two Gourley Brittanys, "Maxine" (CH Gourley's Maximum Bet) and "Sassy" (Gourley's Schoenhund Sassafrass Lass).
Maxine was out of Gourley's Brittanys first litters; Sassy was one of the pups from Maxine. Christine Gourley is a responsible breeder who is involved and interested in the well being of her pups, as well as taking pride in each dog's accomplishment. She has partnered with me in assisting me in raising the both dogs, and has encouraged me in obtaining titles for both Britts. She is a selective breeder who carefully chooses the pair of parents, and makes sure that she is breeding the best stock of pups.
Maxine finished her Junior Hunter's title in one weekend, as well as Sassy, her pup, has the inquisitive and "nose" to find birds, where ever they hide. I am very pleased with both dogs, and would not hesitate in seeking advise from Christine when selecting another pup.
Submitted by: Kathleen J Brown on Feb 15, 2008We were fortunate to find Gourley's Brittany's close to home. After careful screening by Christine, she let us get Brandy or "Second Time's a Charm", who was already 16 months old. I needed a dog to exercise and be my therapy dog. She loves to do anything I ask her to; especially "cuddle." People who visit our home say, "I have never met such a calm dog!" and that for a Brittany! She has brought our family a lot of pleasure and we're hoping she finishes her championship very soon- she has the right stuff! When that is completed, on to therapy dog school.
Submitted by: George Stern on Jan 23, 2008I own two Gourley Brittanys, "Rocky" (CH Gourley's DFL 99 Carat Diamond, born 9/3/06) and "Ranger" (CH Gourley's Wild Dream Adventure, born 4/7/07).
Both dogs finished their AKC Championships when they were 9 months old and Rocky began winning Best of Breed at 15 months old, defeating top ten ranked dogs. I live on 360 wooded acres in California and they both have daily active hunting lives and show real talent (although they haven't yet had time to compete in formal hunt or field events -- they're too busy hunting)!
Christine Gourley has been a totally responsible breeder from the day I first called her. She screened me carefully (I'm surprised she let me have a dog)! She gave me good advice on raising them and has remained involved in their growth and development from day one to the present. I think she chooses her breeding stock very carefully and has consistently produced excellent results.
Submitted by: Cindy & Charlie Pearson on Jun 11, 2007In the fall of 2005 my husband and I were fortunate enough to expand our family to include "Aurora Fire" or Josey as we call her. She has become a wonderful companion and excellent hunter - as my husband just said, "she's the best dog I've ever hunted with." Her disposition is happy, she is curious, obedient, and not only fetches her master's shoes but also his socks! She did an outstanding job in the field last fall when we went pheasant hunting in North Dakota and Iowa. Her eagerness to find the birds, freeze, and then retrieve after the shoot was only outdone by her stamina! What can I say...she's a great girl from a great line! By the way, we live in the interior of Alaska where she hunts ruffed and sharptail grouse.
