We picked up our black tricolor Lucie 4 weeks ago and she's an amazing little puppy. She is already reliably retrieving, demonstrates a great nose and is really persistent when finding hidden sticks and bird wings. I think she's going to be fabulous in the field! Lucie has also been an incredibly healthy puppy, and as a veterinarian, I see puppies all the time. We look forward to a wonderful life with Lucie (aka "Lucifer" as she does have a bit of the devil in her!). Thanks Matt!

I got a pup from Matt Keller and it showed the most potential of any pup I have ever seen. sadly he was killed by coyote's. I hope for another one half as good.

I got my tricolor pup Jinx (Tucker) from Matt last July...He was shipped from Arizona to Philly in perfect health.
I waited a while to post because I wanted to see how my pup turned out. After having Jinx for less than a week he was pointing wings in my yard. Ive worked with him slowly but surely. Jinx is about to be 10 months old and he is just the most perfect dog in every sense. Ive owned 2 American britts prior. This is my first French britt. Jinx may be the smartest dog Ive ever seen. He was unbelievably easy to train. Supercalm disposition and ultra friendly to everyone. The perfect house dog and the perfect hunting dog. Most will not believe how loyal and loving these dogs are! Turn them loose outside and they are hunting machines! Jinx can find a bird where others have missed. He is also a fantastic retriever as well as one heck of a tracker. Ive cold trailed well over a 100 yards through some heavy woods and he has no problem finding the bird and bringing it back to me. I have no doubt Ill be hunting over jinx this fall with excellent results. Ill be looking for a female soon Matt!!!

I have had three of Matts dogs, Roxy, Henna, and Hunter.
Matt has done so much for me and my dogs. Half a year ago, I lost my pup Henna when she was 1.5 years. She was hit by a car when we were on vacation. Matt was notified, because since we bought his dogs we have been very close. Matt GAVE me Hunter, a new puppy to help us through Henna's death, and to keep Roxy social. Matt is now training hunter for FREE and working to getting him to trial hunts with his sister Roxy.
I have been so impressed with all the hard work Matt puts into these dogs, and the bonds grown between you and the bird dog.
His Frenchies are amazing companions and even better bird dogs.
I have helped train, and gunned for Matt many many many hours in the training process and it is always amazing to see all these dogs become such driven and successful hunters.
I would recommend any of Matts trained dogs, or a pup to anyone looking for a great, natural dogs.
His dogs are very pretty, very driven, and they cannot help but to please the master.
Roxy my pup at 1.5 years is a solid pointer, and retrieves great! I did not have to teach her any commands. All the dogs I have had teach themselves. They kennel up when I say, they learned their own name, and do all your basic commands.
But none of that is a reason to get a bird dog.
If you question yourself at all to get a bird dog from the Kellers, you can call Matt at anytime (He is awesome with communication) and he will bring you out and show you how the dogs work.
ANOTHER reason to get a Keller dog and have him train, he DOES NOT use shock collars. I have gunned over a lot of dogs. I love watching a completely natural dog work that has not been enfluenced by E-Collars.
I am so happy with all the dogs and all the experiences. I cannot thank Matt enough for all the work and time.
I EXTREMELY RECOMMEND GETTING A KELLER FRENCHIE. BEST DOGS I HAVE OWNED AND HUNTED WITH. GIVE MATT A CALL!!!

Allow me to preface my recommendation….Our oldest French Brittany, Gabe De Sainte Keller, aka Ruger, which we obtained from Matt, is now almost 3 years old. Ruger is a hunting machine! His drive and nose are superior, and his is notorious for finding well hid birds that other dogs have missed. We participated in a planted hunt (Ruger’s first) where two other dogs worked a field together, bringing in several birds, while we worked our field. After the two dogs had left their field, Ruger was pacing, so my husband let him run. He found 3 more birds, which the two dogs had missed. To this day, he continues to clean up.

I picked up my baby girl, Hartlyn Jean De Sainte Keller, aka Benelli, when she was 9 weeks old, in mid-January 2013. I had major back surgery (spinal fusion, rods and pins) in February 2013 and I was in a heavy duty back brace, extremely restricted from movement, for 7 months. One day in April, my husband brought home a live chukar for Benelli. He put the bird in our back yard and we let Benelli loose. She toddled and bounced around as puppies do and the second she caught scent of that chukar, she froze! Natural instinct! Amazing bird nose!

That summer, my husband took Benelli out twice with planted training birds (in launchers), for a very limited exposure. I watched from the truck as I was not able to participate. However, knowing the quality of dogs Matt and Paula have produced, I was not worried about her limited formal training. I wanted to be the one to work with her. So for this past year, I have loved on my baby girl, playing fetch and taking walks. Bonding time.

In February 2014, I was finally able to take Benelli out for her first ever, live hunt. Pheasant and chukar. As we went out, she stayed right by my side, thinking we were simply out for another walk, only this time in sage brush. We brought Ruger out and she chased him around until he came upon the first bird. She was right behind him, caught scent and went into a solid, locked on point. After that, it was game on! She was searching and finding birds on her own, locking on point and holding steady. She showed honor and backing respect to Ruger without being enforced by us, but by simply following the lead of her brother when he showed the same to her.

You must understand, I know many of you are thinking it was not wise of me to hold off on working Benelli, that my husband could have trained her, or I could have hired a trainer. I was even criticized for wasting valuable time and letting my dog get “rusty”, but after seeing the superior quality of dogs Matt and Paula have bred and having hunted with our Ruger, I had absolutely no reservations about holding off on her training. She is MY hunting partner & I wanted to be the one working with her.

My Benelli, she is THAT PROOF of the quality of dogs you will find with Matt and Paula Keller. My confidence, is THAT PROOF, when you take one of Matt and Paula’s dogs, you have absolutely nothing to worry about and nothing to question.

Matt and Paula, Thank you for my amazing baby girl, Benelli!!!

We did our home work when we started looking for our new hunting dog....Mat came highly recommended.
We visited his facility and went on a hunt with a couple of his dogs. Then he showed us JAKE!!!
Best looking dog I have ever seen...Mat had worked with him a few months. He pointed really well and retrieved like a champ.
We fell instantly in love with him.

Great blood line, awesome pointer and a great family dog as well.....

Thanks Mat you did good with this one for sure.

This one year old has been on quail, chukkar, and retrieves doves all with a smile on his face and a tail wagging.

Another update on Abby. We got her in 2013 and she has worked with my redtail hawk on squirrels and she is a huge help in finding them, keeping track as they move, and making sure they keep moving when on the ground. She also works with the Harris Hawks and the bunnies like a charm, will find and point and honors the birds when they are on a kill. She is a delight in the house, never had an accident, loves to be on the couch with us, and travels in the RV like a pro. Can't say enough, love the dog.

I have 2 of Matt's dogs. One is 2 1/2 and the other is 2. It is their second full season hunting live Gambel's quail in AZ. I couldn't be happier! The last two hunts we got 9 and 8 birds. The two dogs work togehter great. Both days all birds were pointed and retrieved. It's awesome! All I have to do is make the shot, the dog's do the rest. The dogs are doing so well that I switched from 6 shot to 7 1/2 or 8 shot because the dogs make it so obvious where all the birds are going to be coming out! lol The dog's back and honor points, are hard workers, and LOVE to hunt.

Had my one year old out yesterday on Mearns quail down by Mexico. Tough hunting but he and my three year old Keller brit hunted hard all day about 6 full hours on the ground. never quit and had good energy to the end. The one year old had the best nose of the day and having never hunted Mearns before that was a great sign. best point was when we were down in a wash and the birds were 30 yards above us up a very very steep bank. So steep I had to climb it on my hands and knees. He got birdy on the bottom of the bank and wouldn't let me leave. Glad I listened to him because I tried to call him off the bank twice thinking there was no way he would wind birds that high up a steep bank with no wind moving. Sure enough a went back and sent him up the bank and he locked hard on a tight holding group of birds.
Had a hunter with me that had never hunted behind dogs and the first group the pup locked on was a spot this hunter had walked within 6 yards of just before and the birds didn't jump. Came back by with the pup and he locked up.
This friend of mine was amazed and now knows there is no reason to ever hunt quail without a dog.

Both my Keller Brits (3 year old and 1 year old) are rock solid. Hunt close, always check back and work great angles. Natural retrieve and solid points and tell you when they're getting into birds. Having owned and loved Pointers for years I'll never go back. French Brit best dog I've hunted with when you want a close working, natural hunter that you don't have to spend hours training, no E collar needed just gentle commands they hunt for you not themsleves, and great in the home, calm and quiet. Anyone that wants to talk to me about my experience with Frenchy's ust ask Matt for my number. My dogs are Ryder and Hank both from totaly differnet Bitch and Sire. Tell Matt what you want in a dog and he'll put you on the right litter, be honest

I bought Hank in August 2013, just 3 months prior to our pheasant season here in Ohio. He was 9 months old. I called Matt and told him what I was looking for and he guaranteed me that he had the dog for me. After speaking with several other breeders I decided to purchase Hank. He has been everything Matt said he would be and more. All of my friends and I have hunted with setters for years. This little dog is out hunting all of the setters and a wire hair every time we are in the field. He's pointing, retrieving and honoring at only 13 months old. I'm surprised how well Hank cuts through the heavy cover we hunt here in Ohio. Not only is he a great bird dog but he is also an excellent house dog. We have 3 young children that Hank plays with very well and he was easily house trained.

After seeing Hank in the field, two of my friends are planning to contact Matt for their next dogs and when I'm ready for another dog I will be calling Matt again as well. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an exceptional bird dog to contact Matt Keller. He's honest and a pleasure to work with!!!!!!!!
