Above is a picture of our Dam, "Dixie Dallas Star", In the field her first season 2005.
We have been breeding AKC American Brittanys Ten years now.
As an American Brittany owner, and hunter, my goal is to produce healthy pups that meet the standards of the breed, grow to be average in size, having a great temperment at home and in the field.
I select Sires with a mild temperment, a Blood Line History that will produce pups with strong natural hunting instincts, and the potential to be great companions to hunt with in the field.
For those of you that are not familiar with the American Brittany breed.
Here is a short youtube video about the Brittany breed. CLICK on it.
Our next litter is planned for Spring 2017. In April
We will be breeding Kadi with "Spice Rum Brittany's"
This Litter was born on June 12th, Males still available.

Kadi and Chase pup...we were excited to hear they are having another litter and rushed to get our deposit in. We have a girl from their 1st litter and regret not bringing a sister home with her. Our girl Addie is the complete package of a Brittany, very loving and great hunting instincts. She was pointing soon after we brought her home. She is the smartest and prettiest Brittany I have seen, she continues to amaze and amuse us every single day.
Rick is a professional breeder, very helpful with any questions we have. He absolutely loves and takes care of his dogs and pups. Rick kept us posted on the litter from the day they were born. We are excited for our next puppy "Isha"

We had always had 2 Brittney's. When our oldest passed away, We were looking for a very special breeder. After we talked to Rick, and checked out all the knowledge and history of raising Brittney's, we had found our breeder. He kept us informed every step of the way. Rick sent us pictures from birth on up. We picked out our pup at 4 weeks, they were all so cute, he let us take all the time we needed. Rick and his wife hand raise all the pups. We could never thank them enough for giving us our newest member to our family.

If I could give Rick's Brittany Kennel a 10/10 I would. I lost my previous Brittany named Diesel to cancer on August 23rd 2013. I knew I was going to get another dog but I didn't plan on getting another Brittany. Once I started to think about it I missed so many things about Diesel, his soft fluffy ears, his amazing personality just to name a few. I finally decided that another Brittany was the best dog for me. I live in Canada and because Brittany's are not common up here the wait lists are long and the cost is almost double. I searched online and saw that Rick's Kennel was having puppies in late September 2013. This was perfect timing for me because it was enough time for me to grieve my other dog but not too long to go without a dog. I contacted Rick to inquire about the puppies and requested a male. I sent in my deposit, which I learned that was refundable if I for whatever reason I could not take a puppy. This showed me that Rick cared about his dogs very much and it's not all about the money like most breeders. Because I lived far Rick was kind enough to send me pictures and weekly updates through e-mail. He even sent me a video of my puppy playing. I went to visit my new puppy at 3 weeks of age and met Rick and his wife Roxane. They were very welcoming to my family and I and we felt right at home with them. Their dogs are just beautiful and cared for so well. The puppies we just starting to be active so we were lucky that we could hold them before they got too squirmy. I went back to pick up my puppy when he was 7 weeks old, normally Rick said he preferred to wait until 8 weeks of age before the puppies go home but he was kind enough to make an exception as this was the only time I could come pick him up. Again we visited with Rick and his wife and played with the puppies until it was time to go. I could tell that it was hard for them to watch someone walk out with one of the puppies but I promised them that he would have the best life I could give him and all the love in the world. Phoenix will be 1 yrs old on September 22nd and has been an amazing puppy. I can't thank Rick and Roxane enough for giving me such a wonderful new friend.

Let me start by saying for my fiancé and I deciding to add a puppy to our home was a very tough decision. We knew people that had brittany's and one day we decided to start our search online and our search brought us to Rick. We decided to purchase a brittany from Rick and when we called he only had one puppy left! I remember telling my fiancé we don't want the one nobody else wanted, thats the runt! Little did I know we would grow to love this Baby Jack as much as a family could ever love their puppy. He is an intelligent, strong, unique individual and a part of our family unlike anything I could have ever imagined. I give all the thanks in the world to Rick and family for being very good Brittany Breeders and for taking pride in what they do. I would recommend them to anyone I know. Thank you from the bottom of our heart's Shane and Wendy

We purchased our puppy, Remington (AKA REMI), this summer from Rick. The entire experience was one of the best I have experienced with a dog breeder. The Ostrowski's truly care about their dogs and the Brittany Breed. We are so happy to have our new family member. The vet exclaimed that the care in the first 8 weeks was apparent and one of the best she had seen. She stated "You really found a terrific breeder". Thank you, and hopefully next year we can get our second pup from Rick as well.

Our Female Ginger, one of Maddies pups, just turned one a couple of weeks ago and has been a great addition to our family. Dealing with Rick was great. It took a while for our family to make a decision on which puppy to choose but, Rick was very patient and helpful. We even made a second trip a few weeks later to visit Ginger and Rick was more than willing to accommodate. As far as hunting, this Brittany is a natural. She points and holds as well as any dog I have ever hunted with. She got into the field at about 4 months and showed interest right away. I would recommend Rick's Brittany Kennel to any one who is looking for a Brittany pup.

Bailey was born 6-1-11. She has been a wonderful addition to our family. She has a great personality, friendly to everyone and great with kids. She has shown signs of being a great bird dog, noticing birds right away. She started pointing around 12 weeks. The first time we were shocked. In October we had taken her to the U.P. and took her out for a first hunt for her and my wife. Bailey did very well. following direction and going toward any bird noise she heard. We had tested her with shot guns and wasn't phased a bit at the noise. This was very encouraging. I can't wait to start the serious bird training shortly. She mastered all of the basic obedience commands very quickly and I'm by no means a professional trainer. House training came very natural for her as well. I can't tell you how many compliments on how pretty she is everywhere we go.

My pup's name is Tucker and I could not be happier with him. He is a natural pointer and holds his point very well. He has a great nose for birds and is better behaved than a few other dogs I know that are twice his age. He is 7 months now and a true joy to have. Dealing with Rick was a great and smooth experience. He was more than willing to answer all of my questions even when I asked them more than once. I highly recommend dealing with Rick for your next best friend.

Jake was born 6-1-11 of Dixie and Spice Rum Luke, I shot 4 woodcock and 3 ruffed grouse in Michigan over solid points. In early December I took him to Kansas where he pointed several quail coveys, wild pheasants and two flocks of prairie chickens. In January I entered Jake in a Hunting Dog Trial, his and my first, and he placed 2nd in the puppy class. He's points are rock solid and he's steady to wing. He's a great dog around the house, too.

We've been around bird dogs for 35 years, yet we've never seen anything quite like Grady at this young age. His natural hunting instincts are incredibly strong. Most pups don't get far from your heels the first season in the woods. Grady gave us five productive points this past fall, a day before his 5 month birthday, and it's been an amazing experience ever since. It's early in his development, but if all goes well he's going to be something special. Next season can't get here soon enough!
His behavior and personality are great, too. He is very social with other dogs, and has even befriended a female chow in the neighborhood that no other dog can get near. He's terrific with our grandchildren (ages 3 & 5), and he's a fast learner.
Rick and Roxan are friendly and knowledgeable, and they love their puppies. It's obvious that this is not a business for them, it is a passion.
