Bought my brittany, Gus from Eric about two years ago super nice guy, very knowledgeable and clean kennel. Owned bird dogs my entire life mostly English setters and can say this Brittany is one of the hardest working most naturally instinctive dog I have ever seen. Also a great pet and great around the fam and lap dog. 10/10 awesome dogs!

May I begin by saying that I have owned some good Brittanys and one exceptional Brittany. You bird hunters know what I mean. I am very excited about the possibilities of the pup we bought from Eric. The pedigree is more than I hoped for. Eric impressed me from our first conversation and he has given us all the personal time and information needed. His kennels are clean and the dogs are well kept. After bringing our pup home we took him to our vet for a wellness physical. Our vet was impressed with the condition of Chief and the quality vaccines and worming products used by Eric. Pretty donít hunt but this pup has great markings and conformation. His drive is wide open with natural casting and he loves the rough stuff. Loves to retrieve and release. He hunts, finds and points planted quail wings. Canít wait to put him on a live pigeon. Developing very fast with promise to make an exception field dog and earning the title Mr. Thanks Eric for working to produce such genetically fine dogs. I will recommend you to all my friends and if in need of another pup will come back to you.

I got my Liver & White Brittany, Rosco P. Coltrane, from Eric at Smoking Gun. Eric's kennel is great, I was really impressed when I first showed up to meet the pups. His facilities are clean and well kept. Eric clearly spends a lot of time on the dogs. He communicates well and always quickly responds to any questions, and is helpful in any way he can be. Eric puts the pups out to new homes at 7 weeks. I prefer pups be with litter mates until at least 8 weeks, so I asked if he could accomodate that, and he told me I could leave Rosco until 8 with no issues (some of the litter mates would be gone at 7, but a couple would still be there him).
Rosco's entire litter was born with naturally docked tails, which is great.
Additionally, Eric seems to be in it for the right reasons. He clearly loves his dogs and the breed in general. Eric is truly a great guy to work with. You couldn't find a nicer, more easy going breeder. I'm very proud to have a Smoking Gun dog, and I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for an extremely well bred hunting (or competition) dog. My Rosco is an OUTSTANDING dog so far.... healthy, smart, beautiful looking (every pup there was), energetic, brave and confident. I'm sure I've got a rockstar bird dog on my hands. I traveled 10 hours to get my dog from Smoking Gun, and will do it again next time.

I searched all around for a top breeder, and am glad I did. Eric was knowledgeable and helpful from the beginning. He loves his dogs. We got a pup from Bullet and Dixie Dec 2017. Our pup, Ice, is a pleasure to be around. He was great on the natural retrieve at 7 weeks. I have mostly let him be a pup and have been working on letting him develop hunting with his nose with fun games. Not even really trying to train him he recalls almost every time, and knows whoa at 11 weeks. It is cool to watch him cover ground with his nose. He is a natural. In a few months we will start to develop his skills, which I look forward to. He does great in the house. He just curls up and sleeps in the corner of my office while I work. He sleeps in his kennel at night and goes in when I say kennel. Ice is hands down the best pup Iíve ever been around. Thank you Eric!

searched all the US and Canada for the right puppy. Found the best one 40 miles from home. Visited Eric and had a good meeting with Bullet and Dixie. Beautiful dogs both. Gave Eric a deposit and got the pick of the litter. Eric let us visit when the pups were about 4 weeks old and had naturally docked tails. On the way the song played the old song Wildfire on two different radio stations. The puppy was to be named Wildfire. Eric was very helpful in choosing the right puppy. Wildfire looks people right in the eye he is very quick to pick up things. Eric e mails us to keep up with puppy progress. Good times ahead hunting and hanging around home.

Our hunt for a quality Brittany puppy led us to Eric Lowman and his Smokingun Kennel. Eric was great to work with throughout the process. He kept us updated and was extremely helpful in puppy selection. And when we had to delay pickup, his flexibility was much appreciated.
Eric has top of the line Brittanys and we couldn't be happier with our puppy, Stoker. He's a sharp pup and we're looking forward to getting him out into the field. We highly recommend Smokingun Kennel to anyone looking for a quality Brittany. Great dogs! Thanks again Eric!

Eric was awesome throughout the process of finding the right pup for our family. He cares so much about his puppies and takes great are of them from birth. We love our Brittany named Harbor! We picked her up at 7 weeks and she has become attached to us very quickly. She has natural instincts and loves to play. She is a great family dog! Eric is a great breeder to work with and we plan to work with him again in the future!

We can't say enough positive things about Eric Lowman at Smokingun Brittanys. This was our first experience working with a breeder and we appreciated his patience answering all of our questions about the process.
I researched many breeders online and Eric had the highest number of positive reviews and not a single negative, which put him at the top of our list. I explained to him that we were looking for a family dog first with a good temperament and hunting dog second. He listened to our needs and when it was our turn to pick, he worked with us to match the right pup with our family. He advised us that our pick for a female might not be the right match for us and met us to let us see another pup in the litter that would be better. He could have very easily just given us the last female, but it was important to him to match the right temperament with our family.
He gave us all the paperwork with history and shot schedule and continued to follow up with us regularly to get updates on the puppy.
Scout is extremely smart and learned basic commands the first week or two. He is a beautiful dog in his features and everyone comments on how great he is.
We had two neighbors get puppies from a different breeder around the same time, and they were so impressed with what I told them about Eric versus what they went through.
This is not a business for Eric - his love for the dogs really shows and his desire for them to be placed in the right home comes before money. So if you are looking for the best Brittany's with amazing bloodlines, look no further!

Eric was great to talk too and work with on picking out the right pup for me. Eric has some of the best bloodlines in the country and I know that for a fact.
I pick a male, named him Gauge on Feb. 18th. At 8 weeks he was so intense when he is on point. He show so much natural bird working ability right now at 10 1/2 weeks old. He has also been doing really well on his retrieve. I love this dogs looks, intensity, smarts and he is level headed too. I cant wait until I run him in his first NSTRA trial. He is also an awesome house dog and he gets along great with my other Britts. He has excellent temperament. Thanks again Eric , I am sure that I will look your way in the future.

Eric was great to work with, from start to finish. We visited several Brittany breeders before finding one who cared for his dogs the way they should be cared for. Even after taking our pup, "Birdie", home, Eric stayed in touch for updates and shot reminders. Highly recommended.
