My Levi (now Luc) is 10 months old. We just completed his first hunt today on wild quail in south Texas.

Luc made three solo points, quartered like a mature dog and followed commands including whoa like a champ!

Can't wait for tomorrow!

Hi Matt,

I have been remiss in not having sent you a note before this. My family and I picked up Iris from you in early/mid-April 2013 (she was born 2/20/13). We named her Hazel. I just wanted to reach out and tell you what a joy she has been for all of us! I have had dogs my whole life and I've loved all of them, but I have never had a dog like Hazel. As I type this note to you, she's curled up by my feet where she'll sleep peacefully until I get up to move. At that point, she'll just follow me to my next resting spot and resume her position.

In the field, she is tractable and obedient. She works closely, has a phenomenal nose and she's very, very smart. The first two years of her life have not been great years for quail numbers her in AZ but this year is looking better in some areas. I'm hoping that, by giving her an opportunity to get into more birds, this year will be when things really start to click for her. Actually, I'll be taking her to Iowa to spend a week hunting pheasants next month and I believe that experience will be a great one for both of us.

Truth is, even if I never took her into the field to hunt another day in her life, she'd still be the best dog and best pet I've ever had. I can not thank you enough for the meticulous care you take in choosing and breeding the finest French Brittany's around. Hazel is a complete joy and a treasured member of the family.

Great dog! Josie is out of Abby and Gunny. She has a great temperament, is super smart, and a beast in the field. I couldn't ask for anything more in house/hunting dog. She is everything Matt said she would be and more.

Update on Bear: Bear is now 8 months and is an incredible hunter. I have trained with Matt several times and Bear gets better and better. He is going to be amazing in the field this fall. Matt was spot on with him and has been a great teacher to both Bear and me. Being able to train with his other dogs and pups is an eye-opening experience into how Matt runs his operation, it's TOP NOTCH! Thanks again Matt.

At the recomendation of a good friend, I turned to Matt Keller for assistance obtaining my first hunting dog. I was a first time dog owner and wanted a reliable dog to join me in the field on my quail hunts. I had researched French Brittanys and felt that the size and capability would be perfect for what I was looking for. I also didnt have the time to raise and train a dog from a puppy. Matt had the perfect solution for me, a 6 year old female named Katie. I didnt have to do any training and right away she adapted just fine to the family with 3 kids. I have hunted Katie over a dozen times in the first year that I have had her and she has done very well. Katie hunts close, holds a solid point and retrieves very well. She has a lot of energy and is always excited to be out in the field. I will be adding a hunting companion for Katie in the future and will use Matt again for another solid dog.

Our pup out of Eppie and Henrie is super smart and so confident and bold, even at 7 weeks. He is advancing quickly with common obedience and his confirmation is perfect! I was hoping for a female, but this male is the perfect fit, and I look forward to working with him in the field.

Hey Matt,
We have had Tank (Junior) and Cash now for 8 weeks and they are excellent dogs.....very distinct but great personalities, super smart, athletic and just fantastic all around happy pups. My boys and I are really looking forward to hunting with these two and my wife loves them as much as the boys and I do.

If anyone is looking for a Brittany you need to call Matt....he came recommended to me by one of my Dad's best shooting buddies and friends and everything about working with Matt has been Dad just met Tank and Cash and it wouldn't surprise me if he ends up with one of Matt's pups as well.

What can I say...I am more than pleased with Bear (Dash from Ginny & Levi). He is now 14 weeks old and absolutely wonderful!! Handsome, friendly, eager to please and has amazing instincts. I can already walk with him off leash where he is either at my left side or out about 10 ft and then comes back to check in. Visually points on a quail wing in the back yard since 8 weeks and is getting his basic commands. Matt was right about all aspects of Bear. He runs a top-notch kennel and I can't wait to get Bear in the field next fall. I would recommend Matt and the breed to anyone looking for a loving family pet and what I expect to be an exception hunting companion! He also fit right in with my other two dogs. I hope to get another one in a year or two. Thanks Matt and Paula!!!

Can't say enough about our now 1 year old pup Dax. He is out of Ganache " Gidget " and Ely's Christmas Eve litter. We both had our first upland season and were successful on Sage grouse, Quail and Chucker, all wild. He is whistle trained and obedience/house trained. He hunts close, checks back, and responds to my change in direction. Wonderful companion! I decided to let his and my first season be low stress and have not introduced a collar. I have found a local trainer who has access to plenty of live semi wild birds. Both Dax and I will brush up this spring and summer for next season.

We like Dax so much that we would like a second male from a repeat breeding if time worked on both ends. I hunted Dax 1-2 days a week in season, but 98% of the time he is a house companion and we would want the second to be the same high calber field and HOME animal. We like Dax's small size and short coat and prefer the same.

Thanks again for a wonderful dog!

I had Jinx with a trainer in April of last year and he regressed badly. I couldn't figure out what the problem was until I watched a few training sessions. Let me just say to anyone thinking of training. These dogs require VERY LITTLE TO NO FORCE to train. They are incredibly intelligent and loyal and do not need to be shocked if they do something wrong. Ill leave it at that...

I brought Jinx home and called Matt and explained what I saw. He gave me some very good advice. Give Jinx a couple months break. I did just that. Around august I started training in earnest on my own with quail then partridge and finally my homing pigeons. I raise all my own birds so that makes things nice. I used a couple launchers and a remote and within days had Jinx locking up and holding on the flush. We progressed nicely and I decided to take him to my hunting camp in the north central Pa mountains to work him on wild grouse.
At camp the first day I ran him and worked him on homers (they flew 250 miles back to my coop) the next day we went for wild grouse. The first one he found flushed wild and Jinx gave chase then stopped. I knew he caught on at that moment. Within a minute he found another and held rock solid til I flushed. I released him and he found 2 more that he held through the flush. I was so proud of him. He was like a rabid fiend on those wild birds. Over the next couple day I saw my boy Jinx go from a pup to a bonafide hunting dog. We worked through the fall on grouse and pheasant and he loved every minute of it. He can find birds that bigger running dogs miss. That's what I want in a bird dog.
Now he has matured into a machine that doesn't want to give up. I spend a lot of time training him and I love every minute of it and it was all worth the effort. I purposely did not trial my dog as Im a hunter first and foremost and wanted a pure hunting dog. This year though we may enter some as I feel I now have a close to finished hunting dog and I'm proud of how far he has come.

I've already put a deposit on a female from Matt and were working on getting her here now. I cant wait to have 2 of them buggers out there working!
As far as Family life you cannot possibly imagine how loyal, gentle and friendly these French britts are until you've had them. Ill never own another breed as I'm a believer! My boy Jinx is the perfect house dog. He is spoiled rotten but in a good way.
If you want the perfect dog Matt Keller is the man to see....
