About Sur le Delavan Kennel
Thank you for taking the time to check out Sur le Delavan Kennel. I encourage you to take a look at our proven dogs and compare them to any other kennel in the country. Out of the 120 breeders listed on this site there are very few that have taken the time to prove their dogs for the clients. Home of: GRCHf CH De la Ferme Sur le Delavan TAN *** GRCHf Ch Fergus Sur le Delavan TAN *** 4xTR CH Hera L'Etoile du Nord TAN *** GRCHF Juno Ten Bar Ranch TAN *** Sur le Delavan Kennel is committed to maintaining and continuing to improve a strict breeding practice that only improves the traits and temperaments that took generations in Europe to achieve. We have a strict breeding plan that focuses on the entire dog. We breed dogs that are: - proven in natural hunting, retrieving ability and field trials - proven in health (ALL breeding dogs have hips certified prior to breeding by the OFA) - proven in correct conformation and have been classed as C1 Excellent by a French judge - proven in temperament and soundness We are not willing to take short cuts in breeding. While other breeders are using dogs that carry the Ay gene and hiding that fact by only breeding orange and white dogs, we won't. We take the extra time to find dogs that are clear of the gene. All of our dogs are proven in hunting fields and competition across the country and over seas. While others have excuses for why their dogs aren't titled- ours are. Every Sur le Delavan Kennel dog has field and show titles. We have no place in our kennel for average hunting dogs. It has taken us a long time to achieve these goals. We researched, tested, hunted and selected only the best Epagneul Bretons to build our foundation pedigrees. If a dog passes the screening and has all the traits that are absolutely necessary in order to give us the genetics that we want in our breeding dogs, they then can be welcomed in to our program. What does that mean for the clients? It means that the puppies at Sur le Delavan Kennel have a great chance to inherit these same outstanding traits. This has been proven by Sur le Delavan Kennel by producing more UKC field champions than any other kennel in the US. All puppies from Sur le Delavan Kennel are UKC and AKC registered and 100% French Brittanys. We welcome you to visit our farm and see our dogs for yourself. Epagneul Bretons: AT HOME. IN THE FIELD. www.surledelavankennel.com Clint, Suzanne, Will and Annabelle LaFary

This is a good breeder. I saw one of his pups named Topanga. She belongs to a guy from Northern Illinois and was already being shot over when she was 4 1/2 months old! Pup has a nice point, is very athletic, pretty, fast and full of energy. Very impressed.

Clint is one of the top breeders and trainers out there. You will never go wrong getting a puppy from him or hiring him for training your dog. No one has done for the breed or the cub then Clint Lafary. He is a very honest person and truly loves this these little pocket rockets as they are known as by many. I got my first EB from Sur Le Delavan. Nothing has changed my life more then my Bo! He maybe more dog then I can handle as he is one strong hunting buddy if there ever was one. I am sure had he been in Clint's hands Gun Ch Gracen Sur Le Delavan TAN (aka Bo)would be a grand champion as so many of his family are. There are few trainers out there as loving with your dog when training as he is.

I just wanted to drop a quick note for anyone looking for a puppy or finished dog. You need to check out Sur le Delavan Kennel. We got a started dog last Spring and are truly enjoying a great hunting season with her.

Can't tell you how pleased I am with the two dogs I've got from hannahatche kennels. Jackie Hutwagner has some of the best dogs hands-down and breeding program is the best in the business. If you're looking for some great hunting dogs you need to contact Jackie Hutwagner or Clint William LaFary

Clint runs a topnotch facility. He strives to produce dogs of the best quality. As he says, he will not cut corners. He is always willing to help with training questions whether you have one of his dogs or not. He is totally dedicated to the concept of a "Total Dog."
If you are looking for a puppy, help with training, or just information on this wonderful breed, he is the one to talk to...

We were able to go to a field trial in ND and see many EBs in action. Clint took the time to meet with us and we were able to see his dogs in the field. We are impressed to say the least. His dogs and his professionalism stood out from the rest. He has clearly taken the time to prove his dogs for his kennel and clients. We are excited to be on the deposit list for Juno's first litter.

Clint,

Thank you for the time you have taken with us and helping us find a puppy that would fit our house. While we don't hunt as much as we would like to I still wanted a hunting dog. And we found it at our farm. Thank you again for all the extra you take on the phone and on training.

Thank you,
Eric

Thanks again for the chance at a great puppy! I can't believe how natural everything has been. We still have the puppy things going on but over all- WOW!

Thanks again,
Scott

GRCHF CH Gallant Thor Sur Le Delavan TAN came to our family as a puppy and has excelled in the field. He has earned his grand champion of the field title and his champion of the show titles at 3 years old. Thor had a close call at 8 months old when he and his 6 month old girlfriend ran away from home. We found Thor and Harriett 8 days later. He had been hit by a vehicle and his front leg was shattered. A surgeon in Dothan Alabama was able to fix him up and with a plate and 14 screws in his leg Thor almost won best of show but he had a limp that cost him the win. We had the plate removed and Thor healed up good as new and has never looked back. He has hunted birds all over the US including ruff grouse, huns, prairie chicken, pheasant, woodcock, and so on. He has 8 open class wins on wild birds, liberated birds in solo and couples. Thank you for producing our dog. Not only can he hunt, field trial and show but he is an excellent house pet and our family truly loves him as part of our family.

Frankie is awesome! We lost our 20 year old cat this summer and the house was too lonely and organized so I did my research and decided a Brittany would be a good fit. Little did I know how wonderful Clint and Suzanne would be to work with. We met with them prior to the puppies being born. Suzanne kept us informed and shared pictures for the first 8 weeks. During puppy classes, the trainer commented often how smart Frankie was and how quickly he learned besides just being adorable. Our little Brittany puppy turned the family room into a play zone. Our house is filled with love and excitement and we could not be happier!! I did read "Puppies for Dummies" before we got our Frankie since I have not had a dog since childhood. That was a huge help in knowing what to expect and no surprises. Frankie is a wonderful addition to our family. We do not hunt but go for long walks and jogs. I recommend Sur le Delavan Kenel to anyone interested in a Brittany.
