About Sun Country Bretons-Home of AKC Master Hunters
Since 1995 we have been proud owners of Epagneul Bretons, AKA French Brittanys and producing dogs for the foot hunter as well as family companions. We usually plan one or two breedings each year. Our breeding program focuses on dogs with proven natural hunting ability, proven in health ( all breeding dogs are OFA certified and test negative for the Ay gene that is responsible for the Sable coloration) and have been confirmed by a breed specialist as meeting the breed standard. Our dogs must excel in the field both on wild birds and in test and trials. We don't just claim to have good dogs, all of our breeding dogs hold Master Hunter Titles or are well on their way to achieving it. In fact we have more AKC Master Hunter titled dogs than any other French Brittany Kennel in the United States. Our clients can be assured that puppies we produce come from breeding stock with champion lines, are OFA certified, proven in health, and are proven hunters both on wild birds and in competition. French Brittanys are one of the smallest pointing breeds. Their sweet and pleasing disposition and high level of intelligence make them wonderful family companions. Yet, when the guns come out they are all business! Their fantastic bird sense & drive, natural retrieving and pointing ability, and close working nature make them fantastic upland bird dogs and a joy to hunt behind.

Thanks Linda!

We're doing great, Murphy is doing really well and is insanely smart. We weren't really trying to train him too much at this point beyond the basics, but he gets bored easily so we just keep teaching him new things and he picks up everything super fast.

The vets loved him, said he looked fantastic and he weighed in at 11.6 lbs, I was super surprised! He has made lots of doggie friends, mostly gets along with the cats, and has met about a million people and loves everyone. We can tell he's a great dog and are so happy to have him :)

Hope everything is going well with you!

Macon is a sweetheart. He slept all the way home. He's explored our yard and is settled down for his nap. Thank you so much for giving us a perfect puppy.

I can't tell you in words what these two wonderful , crazy , A D D dogs mean to me. I adore them they are my best friends, and it's because you had the vision to breed a blood line , that makes them this way. Thank you

We had a fun weekend in South Texas. Skunked on quail, waiting for later dove season. Loved tracking deer (blood) trails! Above all, for us anyway, he is GREAT with our kids. Have a great weekend.

Don and Linda,
Happy Turkey day! I am feeling super thankful for Mia today. The Josie/ Cory alchemy has been solid gold for us. Mia is super mellow in the house and she has been incredible in the field. She is way farther along than I would allow myself to hope. Solid points and retrieving is coming along . Also her abilty at 28 lbs. to hunt all day is astonishing. At just 8 months I can only imagine the machine she will be in few seasons.
Thanks so much,

Don and Linda, Sorry I took so long to write. I have been having a lot of fun this fall being introduced to hunting. Thanks to your advice I am no longer gun shy and love to point and retrieve birds although I've only gone hunting a few times for relatively short hunts. George and Debbie are so excited. Attached are a couple of photos. As you can see I've become a very beautiful French Brittany.

I love living here in Nevada except it is becoming very cold so George is trying to find a hunting coat to keep me warm on cold mornings and for when I start hunting in the snow. At night I get to stay in the house since I'm so well behaved and have my own bedroom ( George and Debbie's closet). I have lots of dog friends but my favorite is cousin Dozer a Chocolate Lab. I enjoy playing with all my toys also but now that I'm growing up I like looking out the living room window looking for quail the best.

We are very interested in adding another pup to our family! We are now living in NE and Stella is hunting every weekend. She's amazing! She has brought so much joy to our family and we are in a great place to add another one. We would like to reserve a female if possible. Please let us know what you need from us. Exciting about the possibility of adding another puppy to our family!

All the best,

Hi Don & Linda. Gibbs has been a great dog. He's going through the adolescence stage for temperament but has been through obedience training and is doing most of the time well. He has great hunting instincts and points birds during our walks. I've been taking him out and getting him ready for fall bird hunting in Iowa. Let me know if you need additional pictures or information. He's been a joy to have.

Here's Mia on her first hunting trip in Idaho. We couldn't be happier with this sweet dog! She is such a fun, loving, and energetic member of our family!

Hi Don and Linda--

We LOVE Linus. He is curious and very smart, high energy and stubborn. His intelligence helps his catch on to new ideas quickly and he seems to be a natural learner. He is also extremely food-motivated. We just finished our first week hunting with him--we bought a 30 foot check cord and have been using it consistently in the field. He seems to have good hunting instincts and casts through cover beautifully. We are still working on getting him to lock down on point--he seems to be curious about birds and not totally get that he's supposed to point them--but he's done really well so far and has found several birds and picks up on scent and moves through the field well. He seems to love hunting and is attentive to our commands and checks back in with us frequently. We haven't taken him off the check cord yet in the field and are a little nervous that he'll try to run birds and not come when we call him which is all around our biggest challenge with his stubbornness. Around the house and as a family dog he is wonderful. He is cuddly and loves attention and sitting in our laps and he is good about settling down around the house and just lying around during down time. He responds to NO really well and we've been able to keep bad habits at bay that way.

I've attached some recent photos of Linus, and we will take some of him from the front and side and send them to you--hope this email captured the information you're looking for. Rick may have more to add. Let us know if you have any other questions. We're so happy to have Linus! How many more times do you think you'll breed Gypsy and Cory? It would be fun to have another pup from the same parents.

Thanks for being in touch,
