About Kern River Kennels
At Kern River Kennels our goal is to provide you and your family with a quality companion for you to enjoy in your home and out in the field! Michelle, our children, and I have all experienced countless fond memories with this gentle, family oriented breed of gun dogs. We hope to provide you with the puppy your family has been searching for, one that will give you years of enjoyment, countless stories to tell, and a lifetime of memories.
Tanner and Paige have proven to us to be exactly what is characteristic of a Braque Francais. Trying to describe this breed of dog is difficult in just a few words. The best way I can describe them is that they are relaxed and content in your home, or at the foot of your favorite chair, all year round. The other five, ten, twenty, or 120 days of the year when you are in hunting in the field, Braque Francais' are explosive, driven, and efficient hunters. It is almost too good to be true, but their personalities are completely opposite depending on their environment. They have a high bird drive, remarkable natural ability, and are an awesome sight to see working on the field! Both of them have scored a Prize 1 in the Natural Ability test through NAVHDA. Tanner and Paige both scored in the 90th percentile on Pennhip tests. We could not have asked for tighter hips. They both are CERF certified.
If these inheret traits are what you are looking for in your next gun dog, then I hope that a puppy from one of our litters will find its place in your home and with your family!!

Submitted by: Tom White on May 08, 2012Kern River Kennels has some amazing dogs. While I was in the Bakersfield, California area a few years ago, I was invited to hunt quail with Jeremy and his son Isaiah (who was 9 years old at the time) over their dog Tanner. To put it real simple, it was Awesome! The speed and agility of the dog to cover so much ground and not miss a single bird. The control that Jeremy has over the dog while in the field was pretty cool. Tanner would be moving right along leaping and bounding over and through the sage brush. Jeremy would give a command and the dog would respond at though it were remote controlled. Tanner would change direction in a moment, cover some more ground then lock up. His point was spot on. Jeremy could tell by Tanners mannerisms how hot the scent was, giving commands for Tanner to move in and finally hold until we were in position. Then Tanner flushed the quail and we would take a couple birds. If it wasnít for the dogís nose, finding some of those downed birds would have taken weeks! I will say on that day my shooting was lack luster and Jeremy and his son made me look worse as they were all over it, but without a doubt the star of the day was Tanner, who provided opportunity after opportunity to shoot birds. The conditioning of the dog was excellent, we went out a second day only to have the same luck as the day before except my shooting was a little better! To tell you the truth, I just liked watching Jeremy, Isaiah and Tanner do their thing, as they made it look so easy. It was a real treat to hunt with them and someday Iíll find some time to do it again.
