This was my first experience buying a bird dog from an out of town breeder, and my first experience with a French Brittany. I was actually referred to Chenerai and Marilyn by another breeder of FB's on this site who recommended their bloodlines and Marilyn's and Dan's exceptional character equally enthusiastically. They were spot on with both. M & D were honest, conscientious and very easy to work with. Gus just turned 1 and I could not be more pleased. Gus has been easy to train and I swear he speaks English. Very birdy, confident and a natural hunter. I had heard FB's were sensitive and was a little worried that would mean tentative. Not at all. Gus is trainable without laying a hand on him. A low firm voice is all that has been required and that has been the case for heel, sit, whoa, here and stay. I'm in Texas and hunt dove too he had a great first dove season. Very quick self-teaching birdiness, and taught himself in just his second hunt retreiving dove in tall grass to cast slightly down wind with nose up and break right to the bird on the scent cone. He's automatic. Quail season is coming up so I haven't worked him on quail yet but if I don't screw it up I know he'll be great. And in the house this dog will curl up at your feet and settle. Which is important to me. Great breed. Great breeders. Great dog. Thank you, M & D!

I don't know how to say how happy I am with my Luke, but I'll try. He just turned one year old and has done everything I asked him to do with a smile on his face. His first pheasant hunt in October, he stayed close, pointed and honored, obeyed commands, game on. His second pheasant hunt in November, he did all those things plus found dead birds and retrieved to hand. We are hunting quail now and having a great time. Luke is great in the house, gets along with other dogs and people, and is just a wonderful friend. Thanks Marilyn and Dan for being such great breeders.

Igot my new best friend / hunting partner / family and friend loved french brittany "FLASH" from dan and marilyn about 4 years ago and fell in love with the breed and making a couple of new friends. I drove from Maine to Mo. to get flash. Now I have just gotten a new male pup "JUDGE" from Cheneraie Kennel as well. He is 10 weeks old now and is retrieving to hand, listening to commands "UP" "DOWN" "COME" "SIT" "NO" "FETCH" "GIVE" and of course answering to his name witch Dan and Marilyn had him doing at 8 weeks. I flew to get him as the drive took me 6 days last time. Flash retrieved 7 ducks when she was seven months old. I highly recommend this breed and breeder

I could not be happier with Cheneraie Kennels and our Isabella “Izzy”. She’s the perfect bird dog…a fun and loving companion to my children at home and a natural during training. She was too young for last season’s hunt, but I have every confidence that she will be great in the field come quail season this year. I can honestly say that I will owe it all to Cheneraie. Not only are the bloodlines excellent, but the knowledge received from Dan and Marilyn is priceless. They made Izzy a part of the family from the moment she was born, are always there to answer any questions, and have stayed involved in her development since we got her home. The love and devotion they have for the Epagneul Breton breed and each puppy really does show. In short, Cheneraie Kennels gets my highest recommendation.

Being diligent in our search for our second French Brittany we were fortunate to meet Marilyn & Dan at their Cheneraie kennels/home. Living nearby allowed us to visit them prior to our decision to purchase Ivy as well as several times before weaning. Since then we have stayed in close contact to discuss & appreciate the development in our precious puppy. We were impressed with not only their love and passion for the breed but their success in producing a strong hunter yet loving and enduring puppy in our Epagneul Breton - Ivy (who from the litter of Le Beau Leon & Fancee Fae-Jan 2013) We would recommend any one interested in this breed to give them a call and see for yourself the dedication and knowledge they have in these quality pups.

Dan and Marilyn are great! The entire process was flawless. Marilyn would send updates on how our puppy "Iggy" was doing the minute he was born. Dan is a wealth of knowledge in traning and caring all along the way. I recently had a 30 minute conversation with Dan and Marilyn on Iggys progress, they just wanted to see how he's doing. All I can say is Iggy is an amazing "Bird Dog" and can't wait until Phesant Season!!!

We are the fortunate owner of an amazing French Brittany named Herbie. What a dog! He has a temperament sensitive enough to obey my pre-school aged girls, yet, is bold, driven, and versatile in the field. Any situation Alaska can dish out, Herbie seems to handle! I attribute this to the fact that Cheneraie Kennels take socializing pups more serious than typical breeders. Really……they love there dogs!!!

Our Lillie-Rose will be four years old this spring. She was from an earlier litter from Leon and Chloe. She is a fabulous dog in every respect. She loves birds! She even caught a fish in the river once. She loves kids and is quite friendly with our grumpy cat. She is smart and eager to please. She is the perfect family pet and hunting dog. She's very affectionate and loving at home and a focused hunter in the field. Dan and Marilyn love their dogs, and we trust them to take the best care of the puppies. We had such confidence in Marilyn and her puppies that we traveled from Washington State for Lillie, and became instant friends with Marilyn. Can't say enough good things about this Kennel!
