Submitted by: Kim Beauchamp on Mar 25, 2015Tucker is my third Brittany and my first from Smokingun. After reviewing many breeders across the US, I ended my search only an hour away from home with Smokingun. Eric allowed me to watch the sire run in a field trial to give me an idea of the nature and capabilities of his kennel. Eric kept in contact with me throughout the process and, in my opinion, provided me with one of the best looking Brittanys I've seen in a long time. At 13 weeks, Tucker is full of spunk and a strong willingness to learn. As for Eric, it is evident that he loves the breed (and all of his dogs) and does what he can to maintain the breeds integrity. Hats off to Eric, as I highly recommend Smokingun Kennels if you're in the market for a top-notch Brittany.
Submitted by: Halle E Reeves on Mar 12, 2015After having Brittanies growing up, and knowing how much my son and I love to hunt, he and I started looking around for a pup. After doing research and reading the reviews, I decided on Smoking Gun Kennels. I emailed Eric and received a response almost immediately with pictures of the Sire and Dam, letting me know he was going to have a litter. We were able to arrange for a male pup from the litter that would be born around Christmas. As soon as the pups were born, Eric emailed pictures and updates until they were weaned and ready to go. He was patient while we spent time with the pups to choose ours and answered our questions. Eric has a friendly and professional demeanor but a huge heart when it comes to his dogs. In addition to being patient with my emails and questions before we picked up Cap, Eric likes to have updates and pictures after we took Cap home. He provided information to us regarding future shots Cap will need, a sample of the food Cap should eat, and other information. Cap is a funny, goofy smart pup. Catches on quick and has an eager to learn attitude. He was house trained within 10 days and loves being outside. Loves being around people and is not afraid of anything so far! Very inquisitive and curious. Cap also likes being around other animals - even cats! I would recommend Eric and Smoking Gun Kennels to anyone looking for a Brittany. I don't believe there could be a better kennel anywhere!
Submitted by: Jeff Sauter on Mar 11, 2015I picked up my male puppy at Erics on Feb. 15th at the ripe old age of 51 days. He's been with us for 24 days so far. The pup has been a real peach. This is my 7th bird dog and my first Brittany. The puppy has slept through the night EVERY night without disturbing us since we brought him home and in all 24 days, he's only peed in his crate once. The vet absolutely loves him-- she commented on his conformation, his crystal clear eyes, his lovely coat, his bite etc. What brought me to Smokingun Kennel is the dogs lineage. I firmly believe that you "buy" the breeding when you look for a pup. The number of dogs in my pups pedigree that are in the Hall of Fame amazes me--I expect great things from him as we go along and training is completed. The puppy will be travelling to Montana from our home in Virginia 2 days after he turns 9 months old for 3 weeks on the prairie chasing sharptails and huns, then a quick side trip through northern Wisc. for grouse and woodcock before returning home. I suspect I'll hunt WILD birds with him and my GSP about 40 days his first year plus a few trips to the local game farm.
Eric has been a pleasure to work with and kept me informed on the pups progress with pics and quick response to my (many) emails. When I picked my pup up, I was given a folder with the registration paperwork and vaccination/worming history. The entire process went very well. If all goes according to plan, I will be back for another pup when I retire my older dog.
Submitted by: Dennise Foster on Sep 12, 2014I was really impressed with Eric, he was easy to talk to, quick to respond, very patient and he held a Brittany puppy for me until I came back from vacation. I offered to pay a deposit or the full amount if he would hold him until I returned but he told me that wasn't necessary and took me at my word that I would get him. I bought "Maverick" at the end of July for my dad, he absolutely loves him. Maverick is very intelligent and gets along well with my mother's chihuahua, which is very difficult to do. He hasn't been hunting yet but my dad is planning to take him soon. I would recommend Eric as a Brittany Breeder for anyone that is looking for one. He definitely made my dad happy with "Maverick" and my dad knows quality hunting dogs because he was a Brittany Breeder several years and has hunted with Brittany Spaniel's for the past 40 years.
Submitted by: Dale G. on Aug 25, 2014Hello Eric,
My wife and just want to thank you again. we drove from Pennsylvania to North Carolina on July 11, 2014. We named the pup Angel. the following weekend home we had Angel on birds and she pointed right away. She has picked up all the commends and was house trained at 11 weeks. this is our third Brittany and by far the smartest puppy so far we trained. as brittany's are Angel loves people and is a great addition to our family. I would recommend Eric as a breeder, Eric was very easy to work with and always got back to you quickly. I will look forward to working with Eric again in the future.
Submitted by: Wayne Brummett on Aug 22, 2014I can not say enough good things about Eric. We had a bad experience with another breeder and probably bothered Eric more than we should have. He was patient with us and provided a wealth of knowledge. This is our first Brittany and Scout has been wonderful. We picked him up on July 12th and a month later he has been quick to learn basic commands, is almost fully house trained and a ton of fun.
The whole experience was great. I would recommend smongingun Brittany's to anyone!
Submitted by: Michelle on Aug 16, 2014Hi Eric,
I just thought you'd like to know the puppy is doing great! We named him Jack, hopefully this name sticks :) He is the smartest dog I have ever known! He can sit, down, crawl, rollover and give you his paw...he even has pointed and flushed out a covey of Bobwhite quail and pointed on some doves...I didn't even know they were there! He is amazing and learns so quickly! We just love him so much. Thanks again for such a wonderful puppy!
Submitted by: Kendra on Aug 04, 2014We brought home Dixie, our orange and white female pup, two weeks ago and couldn't be happier. She is bright, energetic and has a great temperament. Eric Lowman was terrific to work with - a top notch breeder. He was incredibly responsive compared to another high end breeder we had contacted with a fancy website. He sent update emails with pictures and we visited him when the pups were 5 weeks old. We have a 6 year old daughter and visiting the pups before they were ready to go home was terrific so she could see them and understand the process. He let us stay and play with all of them! Eric kept us posted on what pick we were and answered all the questions I had. Eric's kennel is so clean and the dogs and pups were all happy and healthy. You can tell Eric takes great pride and loves the dogs. When it was time to select our pup Eric gave us time to observe and play with the pups. He had given the pups a bath since it was a rainy morning - so thoughtful. He supplied all the AKC paperwork, vet/shot records and even sent us home with a sample bag of the dog food she was eating. Our vet was very impressed with Dixie when we took her in for her first visit. Everyone was saying what a gorgeous and sweet pup she is! Dixie is doing great with house/crate training and we are taking walks on her leash every day. She's loyal and sweet. She likes to play fetch already and my husband is looking forward to taking her hunting. We would highly recommend working with Eric Lowman to buy your pup. The process was so smooth and Dixie is an awesome dog.
Submitted by: Whitney and Mitchell Feld on Aug 03, 2014We got Atticus, a male Brittany from Eric and we couldn't be more thrilled with him! He has a wonderful disposition, is exceptionally smart, and is truly a beautiful dog. Our vet is very impressed with his disposition, intelligence, and form. At 11 weeks he is doing well with housebreaking and leash training. Eric is a pleasure to work with and quickly answered all of our questions. He still checks in on Atticus and reminds us of his upcoming shots. His kennels are clean and he truly cares about all his dogs. If you are thinking about getting a Brittany look no further than Eric.
Submitted by: Michelle Threewits on Jul 27, 2014We got our liver and white, male Brittany from Eric and we absolutely LOVE him! He is gorgeous and he has a wonderful disposition; all of our neighbors and the vet's office went crazy over him. He is a quick learner and at only 10 weeks he is doing well with housebreaking and leash training...he is very smart. Eric is great about answering all of your questions, his kennels are clean, and the dogs are well cared for. He is a conscientious breeder and raises quality puppies that are well-adjusted and socialized. Our pup's pedigree is awesome and he goes to point naturally. If you are looking for the perfect Brittany, Eric is your man, you will not be disappointed! We plan on getting a female from him in the future.
