Home of GRCHF CH Gallant Thor Sur le Delavan, GRCHF Harriett es Deux Pierres Bleues, CHF CH Atos TAN, Gun Callie de Manchabarri, Gun Coca Cola de Manchabarri, and Lakota de la Source d'Hannahatchee TAN. We have great dogs who prove themselves here in the U.S., and our dogs are out of some great dogs such at Atos, Coca and Callie's father Gatsby du mas d'Eyraud who was the 2015 World champion, 2015 European Champion and 4 time French Cup winners and Harriett's father Djazz de la Plume Picarde who was the 2015 French Champion of the Race. See our website for more information at www.epagneulbretons.com. We are committed to producing the best Epagneul Breton (French Brittany) hunting dogs and companions possible. Our breeding stock comes from some of the best Epagneul Bretons from the United States and Europe. We strives to improve the breed based on temperament, intelligence, prey drive, scenting ability and other physical attributes and conformation. We like to compete our dogs in the US and in Europe. The photo above is from a trip to France in April 2016 running Atos in Spring trials. I took him back in March 2017 and ran him in 4 trials receiving two excellent classifications. We have our dogs confirmed to ensure they rate excellent per the standards of the Epagneul Breton before breeding them. We have our dogs' hips evaluated using OFA or PennHip criteria to ensure the hips are free of degenerative joint disease, and we garantee our puppies are free of hip dysplasia. Further, we have our dog's tested for the sable A Locus - Ay gene and guarantee that our puppies are not carriers to ensure we do not produce nor pass these traits on to our clients. We try to be as transparent as we can with our clients about all qualities of our dogs. We love to train and handle our dogs ourselves when we hunt or field trial, and we partner with our clients to provide guidance as their puppies grow and develop. We are a family kennel and our dogs spend a lot of time with my wife and our boys as they grow. We believe in socializing the puppies with their mom, litter mates, other dogs and different people any opportunity we have.

Thanks for the pics. They were cuties for sure. By the way I forgot to inform you that your dogs are really fast runners. One day my wife and grandkids were in the mountains getting ready for a hike with Tana.
Tana wanders into the woods while they were getting ready and all of a sudden Tana is running down the mountain with a sow black bear at her heels. She manages to lose the bear and then walks back to the truck. Fast dogs!!
Thanks again Jackie

I just wanted to give you some sad news on our 8 year old FB. You called her Duchess of Hannahatchee. To us she became Tana and we loved her at first sight. I don't know how it all worked but she was a LADY. Acting and conducting herself in lady like fashion. But more than that she became a beloved family member, companion and great hunting dog. It was so great to watch her find birds, freeze on point and track birds as they moved on her. She was also the hit at elk camp every year.
Tana was just a great dog and we loved her so much. We lost Tana this week to a car. She went where she never had before and I don't think she understood cars as she never chased or barked at cars and living where we do there aren't many cars. You just never know how much you missed something until you don't have any longer. She will truly be missed by all who was around her.
You did proud by the Duchess de Hannahatchee
Best Dog I Ever Had
Thanks again for a great life experience

My family recently welcomed home a tri-colored male out of Atos and Harriett's litter and couldn't be more happy with him! He is a go-getter and I can't wait to get him in the field this fall! Jackie was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Hannahatchee Kennels to anyone.

It's been a month of adjusting for Bea and Bud. Bud thought he had already made toy. Bea is so sweet and quite leggy. She has started to fill out a little. She is calmer than Bud and cuddles :) with me each morning without destruction. Bud tore everything up at her age.
They are buddies ! They seem to enjoy digging holes and cooling off together near grape arbor. Great dogs, we love them.

I'm learning quite a bit about this pup. Your 2 year-old analogy helped. She gets yappy & snappy when she's getting run down. When she starts licking she's about ready to sleep. I take her on a walk/run in the morning which she really likes. She can really motor. Right now she's snoozing on my lap.
I also built something similar to a dog park in the backyard which she can romp around in. It's made out of goat panels so she's confined. She likes it tremendously.
I received the AKC papers and will file them soon. Thanks for sending them.
Her bright eyes and alert ears really appeal to me. We love her look. As you can see, we are enjoying the pup.

Hey gun dog lover's , I grew up in Michigan when pheasant hunting there was outstanding. We hunted behind a lot of good dogs including Brittany's, but I have never hunted with a dog like Maddie, what an amazing dog. Only 10 months old now and she is awesome . We've been in Kansas doing the pheasant thing when she was 16 weeks old , she found and retrieved her first one. The rest of last winter we hunted Texas quail , again she did awesome. She never seizes to amaze me . water and ducks are not a problem neither. A fearless little girl !
As far as a family dog , she just cannot get enough attention. Very vocal not annoying just likes to talk in her own way .
Jackie and Hannahatchee kennels is a place you really need to go for a good experience in quality hunting French Brittany hunting dogs.
I have got another deposit on a another excellent hunter. Maddie was not a pick by the way , she was the only pup left in the litter , don't think it matters you're going to get a quality pup . Also when questions do come up with your pup ., Jackie will always get back to you , sooner than later!
Thanks Jackie , can't wait to get my next pup.

I highly recommend Hannahatchee Kennels. I was fortunate enough to get a beautiful female tricolor puppy out of Atos and Harriett this Spring and she is more than I could've hoped for! She's prey-driven and athletic in the field (and loves water) and sweet and calm in the home. Jackie was great about communicating with me through the whole process, he often sent pictures of her and her litter mates and answered any questions I had. Jackie made sure the transportation of Native (my puppy) from Georgia to Oklahoma via airplane went smooth and he checked in with me several times to make sure she arrived okay. I would buy another puppy in a heartbeat from Hannahatchee Kennels. Thank you for such a great companion. I could not be happier!

I have to recommend Hannahatchee as a great breeder. We could not be happier with our choice. Our experience with our new puppy is beyond our expectations and we would do it all over again and wouldn't change a thing.

I highly recommend Jackie and Hannahatchee kennels if you are looking for an Epagneul Breton (French Brittany). I just purchased a tri colored female from the Atos X Harriett litter. She is now 12 weeks old. Very birdie and showed no fear on a tethered chuckar almost as big as she is. Looking forward to many years of hunting over her.

I recommend Hannahatchee Kennels to anyone searching for the perfect combination of upland dog and family companion. Careful consideration is given by Jackie Hutwagner to produce outstanding Epagneul Bretons. He has great breeding stock successful in the field and in confirmation. I am so pleased with the development of "Liberty" into a solid field dog with great instincts and as far as a family companion I've never had a better dog. You absolutely get what you pay for and Jackie will be available to you anytime to answer questions or just talk dogs. He's become a good friend and mentor to me as a relatively new hunter and you can rest assured he will help you get on a path to successful trialing and/or upland hunting.
