Hi Steve. This is Scott Strand and I adopted Gypsy two years ago. We have been so pleased with Gypsy that we are considering adopting another.

Gypsy out hunts any dog that I have seen!

Steve,
Hi, this is Derek from Woodland, California. I have a male pup (Eli) from your Gunn/Edelweiss litter. I just wanted to let you know what a great little dog he's turning out to be. First of all he's growing like a weed, 23 pounds last week and not overweight. Everybody that see's him for the first time comments on what a handsome pup he is. He knows sit, down and is learning to heel and stay. He's a handful when it comes to energy but that should come in handy in the field.

I work in the agriculture business and Eli is able to ride in the pickup with me several times a week. He's learning to use his nose and quarter the harvested rice fields on our frequent exercise stops. He was introduced to pen raised chukars by a local trainer last week. It's obvious he has the prey drive that makes a great hunting dog. He's bird crazy!! He will start his field training with the trainer in just over a month.

Lastly, my 5 year old son Jack just loves him. Eli and Jack are quickly becoming best friends. I've attached a few pictures of Eli. Thanks for providing us with such a great dog!!

Hi Steve & Cristin,
Just wanted to let you know that I'm really happy with "Gus", as he is becoming a good grouse hunter and a fine companion and thank you for the time given and questions answered when this process was in it's early stages.
Gus is a good example of your quality breeding - great nose, loves to hunt, real trainable and a great companion for all of us.
Thanks and Happy New Years,
Don,Calla & Heather Stevens

Hi Steve,
I just wanted to say thank you for Dichan, he is settling right into
our home. He goes to work with me most days and everyone has grown
almost as attached as I am. I
haven't had a chance to take him out in the field yet but have no
doubt he will be a pleasure to hunt with. He minds wonderfully and
has adjusted well to his new home. Thank you again, I will keep you
updated.

Steve and Cristin;

We had a great fall hunting Abby and I thought I would write to let
you know how she has progressed.

We run Abby on sharptail, ruffed grouse, woodcock, and pheasant.
She runs big enough on sharptail that you don't feel that you are
missing any ground. She tightens up in the woodcock covers and will
bust cattails after pheasants. She is solid on her points even with
running pheasants. She can hunt all day even if we can't!

The most exciting moment this fall was when she
retrieved the first woodcock I shot and that I had totally mis-
marked. Marsha told her to "fetch" and after a couple of passes she
came out of the woods with the bird. I was ecstatic.

Abby is great around the house, she is smart as a whip and has us
completely trained. She is everything that you expect a French
Brittany to be.

Thanks.

Hi Steve & Cristin----an update on Gia----she has become everything we hoped for ---good pal and great hunter at only 6 months old---

A very athletic dog. She gets a walk almost everyday—usually an hour or better off leash—building muscle and stamina.

She is worth every dime we paid for her. Happy Holidays—Tim & Mary

I had not taught Abby to retrieve but she showed real desire, but no
confidence, so last winter I began "force training". It did not take
long to get her confidence up and we progressed through the dummies
and shot pigeons. The most exciting moment this fall was when she
retrieved the first woodcock I shot and that I had totally mis-
marked. Marsha told her to "fetch" and after a couple of passes she

Dear Steve and Kristen:

Tess continues to exhibit the stellar French Brittany personality and energy. She is exceptionally fit and quarters in the field and forest near our home. She points well and enjoys flushing birds when she can find them on the ground. Her temperament is exceptional and she is enjoyed by our neighbors and friends. She remains bright and is exceptionally smart.

We enjoy her so much, and again must thank you for allowing us to bring her our beloved Pacific Inland Coast in Northwest British Columbia.

Every December I remember the trip to your region and back with her in a carry on under the seat on four different airplanes. Despite hitting the first blizzard in Minneapolis and Chicago, then flying home from Chicago through Denver (where we were bumped up to First Class and sat next to Julianne Moore!), then Vancouver and on to the Kitimat Valley Airport in Terrace, I can attest to the fortitude of your pups ability to travel well.

Thanks again and glad to see your continued success as breeders. If you ever have opportunity to visit Alaska, think of us as you fly or ferry by Prince Rupert. We are three hours southeast.

Cheers,
Diane Hewlett and Al Goodwin

Steve,

It’s been one year since my daughter and I drove to Annandale to pick up Fletcher. I wanted to let you know that he has exceeded our expectations, not only in the field but as a house pet as well.

Since our first official foray into the field in November, Fletch has displayed an unbelievable work ethic, running for hours at desired range without a break in pace. Amazing. He is a rock star in all manner of cover and returns on command without fail. And as soon as he got a nose for Pheasant, his point has come along beautifully. As an amateur hunter myself, I am thrilled to own such a naturally gifted bird dog.

Our entire family loves Fletch, and my wife is even able to look past a few dog hairs. Steve, thanks for breeding such a fine animal and taking so much time to answer my question over the past twelve months.

Enclosed find a couple of pics of my older sons with birds hunted over Fletch.

Sincerely,
Bill McDonnell

My wife and I have been very pleased with our experience of acquiring
our dog Frenchesca through the Broughtons. At only 10 months,
Frenchesca demonstrates a natural ability to hunt with great intensity
and to find and point birds. She retrieves grouse naturally and she
is not afraid to chase down crippled rooster pheasants that are almost
as big as she is. She is tenacious in the field and loving in our
home. This is a great breed from great bloodlines bred by thoughtful
and caring breeders.

Best wishes,
Casey
