We got Possum in October 2017 after the loss of another Keller Brittany, Lucie. Possum has been an amazing dog. She just turned a year old, and she's an amazing hiker, mountain biker, skate ski dog, swimmer, retriever, and a wonderful novice hunter. We've had 2 Keller Brittanies and they've both been amazing dogs. Possum was shipped to us in Bozeman, MT, without any issues. Matt turns out some amazing dogs!!!

I purchased Hank, Sept 1, 2017. He just had his birthday July 13th. What a year it has been. I have raised and trained 7 hunting black labs mostly for field hunting. I always wanted to have a pointer but just did not see how to fit them in as they are so much different from the labs. Within a few weeks of my purchase I had 2 of my friends get dogs from Matt also. At just over 6 months I was able to get him on quail, and chuckers. The really amazing thing about these dogs is their pointing instinct, it is incredible. Hank will point anything. LOL
Their energy is incredible.
For exercise I take him to a kennel that has a large play area with a pool. Hank is in 4 play groups every morning. Each play period is about 50 minutes. There will be 15 to 25 dogs supervised. Hank never stops, never lays down, and he does this for 4 straight hours. LOL That energy carries over into the field and is amazing to watch.
These dogs have an incredible nose and an unsurpassed desire to hunt. When the day is done and I am sitting on the couch, Hank is laying right beside me, with his head in my lap, all 40 lbs of him. What else is there to say?
If you are on the fence about the purchase of a Brittany, go for it you will not be sorry. They are great hunting dogs for 3 months and your companion for 9.

We bought a french brittany back in 2015 his name is jet and he is the best dog I have ever owned he was very easy to train and loves our kids I couldn't ask for anything more inappropriate dog. He is very loyal and loveable and when it comes to hunting he is the best.

Update on Holy: She is turning 5 months old this week and she has been an excellent little puppy.
Hunting: Ive been training Holy on pigeons and doves since we got her home, initially i just let her chase and smell doves but now we are at month 5 and she can hold a point for 20 - 45 secs. She finds the planted birds everytime without fail. She naturally ranges 20 to 30 yards out. I use the check cord but honestly dont really need it. Every training session she gets better and more steady point. She is just a puppy so we just have fun and I dont pressure her too much. She ranges very well always checking back. She is absolutely a hunting machine. She is the kind of dog champions are made of. She screams and cries in excitment when I put her in the kennel to go train. I must say im more then pleased with her hunting ability. She is so talented its unbelievable.
Temperament: Holy has been a very hyper dog since day one. She runs in circles around the house if i dont take her out and let her run. To be honest she is much more energy then expected. It has been a difficult to deal with but everyday she gets older she calms down a little more and she is learning her manners. On the flip side, her high energy will pay dividends when we hunt. She can play at dog park without tiring out out, she can work a field and never slows down so its a too edge sword. I would never tell anyone she is an easy puppy but I will say we love her too death and wouldnt trade her for anything.
Training: She is very easy to train, extremely intelligent, she can be stubborn at times but once she learns something, she retains it. She loves to play fetch. Getting her to give up the toy was a challenge and still is something we are working on but she has always loved fetching.
House/Kennel Training: It took us several days to kennel train her. She always wants to be with you, and putting her in the kennel was a little traumatizing at first. We went through several nights of crying and sleeplessness. Potty training also took several day's but she is very good now. When we first got her she would pee every 20 mins so we dealt with a lot of accidents. We no longer have accidents and she scratches on the door to go out.
I hope this helps you in your decision to get a Keller Puppy. I absolutely love Holy and highly recommend Keller Kennels for your next pup. If you have any questions for me, email me at email@example.com or call/text 619-201-1858.

I purchased a French Brittany from Matt and could not be happier with him. He was a very active puppy and after sending him off to be trained I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only does he hunt hard he has turned into a well obedient and very pleasant dog to have around. Thanks Matt for the great dog and work! Can't wait to get another one.

I’ve had Molly for 2 years now. She is honestly the best dog I’ve ever had. I remember asking Matt about whether his pup would be able to handle my high energy border collie. He just laughed and said it wouldn’t be a problem. Boy was he right. Molly is a fantastic companion dog. She’s sweet, loving, and just plain fun. I am now a true fan of French brittanies.

I have much praise for the dog we got from Matt Keller and for Matt himself. I have been a lab guy for years and trained 3 of them as hunting dogs. I decided to go to a smaller pointing breed for a number of reasons and settled on Keller's French Brittanys. I am glad I did. Matt told us this puppy would be soft and to be careful with stern correction. He was absolutely right. We let her play and she is so smart we rarely have to do anything but enjoy her personality. She is now 7 months old and has had an amazing hunting season. I have done almost no actual training and instead just taken her afield and let her be a puppy. She has hunted hundreds of birds and with nothing but positive reinforcement has gotten progressively better each week. She is heeling, hunting hard, checking in, ranging appropriately and retrieving extremely well. She is starting to point and just gets better every week.
The most amazing thing is how well Matt knows his dogs. I never thought of myself as high maintenance but I kept comparing this puppy to a typical Labrador and calling Matt with questions. Matt kept talking me off the ledge and promised she would respond. He was right at every step. I couldn't believe how well he knew the dog, it was almost as if we were neighbors and he could see me (I am in another state). She has plenty of learning to go but she has been a total pleasure both in the house and in the field. I give Matt and his operation 5 stars all the way.

Today was Gigi' s first day home at 7 weeks old and she is an absolutely amazing dog. She spent 2 hours in our backyard jumping through bushes and sniffing everything. When she found our chickens she pointed at them for a good 5 seconds. She follows me around and is always on the trail for something she just doesn't know what yet. I can tell this little puppy has tons if hunting instinct and is going to be a great companion and amazing Hunter. I couldnt be more happy with Gigi (Holey).
Thank you Matt and family for such an amazing puppy!!!

First time hunting at 3.5 months old, Copper flushed 2 covies of Hungarian partridge. She stayed close, did not range too far, and came when called. Hunting is most natural for her, a beauty to watch in the field and at home.
Descriptions: Smart and intense. Expressions galore. Personality plus. She has us laughing and smiling daily. A beautiful dog. A hit at the vets. Thank you Matt for raising such a fine "fur person." Do not change what you are doing.

We picked up 8 wk old Natalie (now Bailey) June 8, after months of anticipation. Matt really "knows his stuff", is very protective of the dogs' environment and care, and was easy to deal with on communication and our visits to see the puppies. Bailey is now pointing a bird wing in the yard and is closely watching birds in and around the yard. Bailey is very smart and is probably the most loving and sweetest dog we've ever had in our 43 years of marriage. Thanks Matt!
