In 2013, the CEB-US board of directors approved a system for rating Epagneul Breton dogs for breeding in the United States. The system is patterned after similar rating systems implemented in France and other countries. Read more.

The rating criteria is designed to provide a systematic and objective review of a dog's demonstrated achievements, conformation, and health. It is not intended to recommend any particular dog or breeder, but rather to provide information for breeders and puppy buyers to consider in selecting dogs for potential breeding.

Sur le Delavan Kennel (www.surledelavan.com) is a small kennel located outside Delavan, Illinois that offers puppies, started dogs, pointing dog training and game birds. We are committed to the highest standards set by the FCI and UKC. Sur le Delavan Kennel is also one of the few kennels that have signed and adhere to the breeder's agreement set by the CEB-US as another way to raise the quality of EBs being produced in the US. Our dogs have the best European lines possible. We test our dogs for the "Sable" gene and only breed dogs that have OFA ratings of "GOOD" or better. All of our dogs are duel registered with the UKC and AKC to help guarantee that they are 100% Epagneul Breton. All our breeding pairs are exceptional hunters. We also compete our dogs in UKC events as a way to "prove" our dog's abilities against other EBs. We are very proud members and supporters of the CEB-US. Sur le Delavan Kennel caters to foot hunters and families looking for a pet, but our dogs do great in the show ring also! We love to, and we are very proud to, show these dogs off and invite everyone to come visit our farm to see these dogs in action.

In addition to our French Brittanys, we also raise and offer high quality and hard flying game birds. We focus on Pheasants, Chukar, Mallards, Pigeons and Bobwhite Quail. We have birds for sale all year round and at many different ages throughout the year. Please contact us to find out more about buying training and hunting birds. ​Please see our training page to learn more about training opportunities that we have to offer here at Sur le Delavan Kennel. We have 4 different dog training areas approved by the state of Illinois on our farm. Please email us with any questions at: surledelavankennel@gmail.com or call at 309-231-8868.

Thank you,

The LaFarys

My husband and I had a very positive experience finding our EB through Sur le Delavan kennel. Daisy is two years old now, and she is truly a cherished family member. In addition to wanting a hunting dog, it was important to us to find a dog tolerant of children, cats and other dogs as well as being a friendly companion....Daisy is all of that and much more! It's hard to describe this breed to anyone who has not met one, but this dog's personality is enthusiastic, silly, joyous and loving, and she has loads of serious bird-hunting talent. We enjoyed every step of the process of finding and adopting this dog, and Paulette was informative, friendly, and professional all the way. The Lafary's were very open and straight forward with us. I will say we talked to many breeders before picking Sur le Delavan. They took the time to talk to us and answer all our questions. That wasn't the case with many out there.

I contacted Clint about purchasing a EB puppy last November, and while he didn't have any available, he did point me in the direction of a breeder he was familiar with, who he has gotten dogs from, and who he trains dogs for. Clint was more than helpful in finding me a great dog! I brought my puppy to Clint when he was 6 months old with very little training under his belt. Clint did an excellent job at gun and e-collar breaking my dog as well as getting him on lots of birds! Clint was great about keeping in contact while he had my dog and was very patient with my questions. When I picked my dog up from training, Clint was more than willing to take me out into the field to see what they had been working on and to make me feel comfortable working with my dog over the hunting season. I would certainly recommend Sur le Delavan Kennel to others and I will be bringing mine back to Clint to keep him on birds during the off-season and to fine-tune different aspects of his training.

we just wanted to let you know that we have purchased our second pup from Sur le Delavan Kennel. Our first is 3 years old and has awesome field abilites, he's very smart and dependable. Those qualities come from a well thought out breed line.
Our second is 12 months. He is very energic, loves to play with the girls and is always ready and willing to retrieve. We highly recommend Sur le Delavan Kennel to anyone looking for high quality Britts. Clint cares about the future homes of his pups.He is available to answer questions or concerns about the Britts. His Kennel set up is accessible, clean and the Britts are happy in their environment. You will also find that Clint is very knowledgeable and trustworty of this breed.We are pleased with our selections from them.

As a professional trainer I have found Clint's dogs to have everything I look for in a quality Field Trial or hunting dog. Clint's dogs have demonstrated great trainability, strong prey drive, beautiful style, incredible endurance, and the love of what they are bred to do! They are also very personable dogs that can be your buddy in the house and then be a first-class bird dog in the field. I've had the pleasure of training and competing with several of Clint's dogs and we've had some great success. If you're looking for a great pet & first-class bird dog, I feel very comfortable recommending the LaFary's French Brittany's.

Our experience with Sur le Delavan Kennel was amazing, we highly recommend Sur le Delavan to anyone searching for a great hunting partner/family dog! Not only are the LaFary's wonderful people to work with, but they are honest, caring, and their love for the breed truly shows in their dogs. We are enjoying our pup very much and look forward to many great hunting years with him!
Thanks again!!!

Griffin is growing by leaps and bounds! I think when I last sent you photos, he weighed about 9 pounds...now he's up to 23 pounds! He's a little lover...he loves everybody and gives lots of kisses and even gives hugs by standing on his back legs and putting his front legs up around our necks...hahaha...the vet thought that was hilarious when he hugged her, too! Mike takes him for long walks every day so that he gets lots of exercise, and I usually have him outside in the backyard two or three times a day as well...we have snow now, so I shoveled paths in the backyard where the dogs can do their potty business and run and play...Griffin and Jaxon are friends finally and like to wrestle and play together outside, although Jaxon grows tired of it much more quickly than Griffin does!

I have lots of photos to send to you, so I'll send them in several e-mails again so they come through for you...he's a BEAUTIFUL (handsome) guy!! His coloring has changed to an even darker reddish color all over his body so now his body matches his head color, and he has LOTS of the roan markings and freckles on his face and legs...he's still got the cutest face!! Have any of the other puppy owners sent you updated photos? We've been wondering how they're all turning out.

We are very pleased with the treatment we get each time we head over to Delavan for some training help. We run English Setters and Clint is very willing and eager to help us. You normally do a 1/2 training day on the weekends. Their fields and birds match with Clint's knowledge of pointing dogs sets my dogs up to be successful each time out. As what has been echoed in the other responses- I highly recommend using Sur le Delavan Kennel for training.

It is very hard to find a true hunting dog, show dog, trial dog and family pet...let alone all in one dog. We found Lucy to be that dog when we met her. Her puppy Fergus was also very special!! We are very excited to be on the waiting list for her upcoming litter. Thanks again for all you help. We learned so much about the breed we never knew about for you!
