We bought Duchess from Eric when she was eight weeks old. Eric was super helpful in our buying process and willing to answer any questions we had. I was impressed with Ericís follow up as well. He contacted us several times after to confirm we were getting our dog the appropriate shots and generally checking on her well-being. We would highly recommend Smoking Gun kennels to someone looking for a fabulous Brittany.

This is our first Brittany and working with Eric at Smokingun Brittanys was easy and successful. Ranger is a beautiful dog with a wonderful disposition. The vet was very complimentary about Ranger's health and looks. He has adapted well to our pack including 2 other dogs. He is responding well to training. Eric was helpful and communicative and has continued to stay in touch. Our family is in love with Ranger and highly recommends Eric as a breeder.

This was a wonderful experience for our family. Eric was great to work with and his Brittanys are exceptional. We could tell right away that he really cares for his animals. Our puppy is beautiful, as were all of the puppies that were there.

In my search for a good Brittany I talked to several breeders in a three state area. Thankfully I contacted Eric. He took the time to answer all my questions both before I purchased a pup and still responds to all my inquiries about the breed and bird dogs in general. She has gone thru three vet check ups with no issues. At 14 weeks she is impressing everyone we meet with her grasp of basic commands. She has a high drive a fantastic nose and is retrieving a dummy and dropping it on command. Loves to work the thick grass and is very bird aware. Very impressed with this pup as she is teaching me about bird dogs. If your looking for a quality Brittany from a breeder who hunts and knows Brittany's , call Eric today

We would highly recommend Smokingun Brittanys for anyone looking for an American Brittany Spaniel. Eric was from the start informative, answered all our questions, is truly very knowledgeable regarding Brittanys (which we have had our whole lives) and always got back with us promptly. The whole experience was seamless!
Jake was born on April 18, 2018 and we picked him up on June 10, 2018. He is a beauty. Probably the best looking Brittany I have seen! At 3 months now, he can sit, lay down, shake, come, stay, fetch "hunt em up" and return....he also seems to point at anything that flys...he has a nose and a motor that never stops! lol
Thank you Smokingun Brittanys for such a great experience!

Smokingun Brittanys! What can I say! I contacted Eric wanting to get a puppy for my other Brittany gun dog. Eric is very knowledgeable and communicates extremely well. He answered all my questions promptly and kept me updated on my Chance with pictures and email. Upon pickup his kennel was very clean and well kept. Mom and dad were both on site. Chance has great drive, and is very bold. Full of energy and just plain fun. His vet check ups have been great. If you are looking for a great breeder look no further. Eric and his smokingun kennel is top notch. Thanks Eric! Thomas

I searched long and hard for a Brittany with the pedigree behind him to become not only a great hunter but also a family pet, and I was able to accomplish that when I picked up Fin from Eric. Eric's dogs have pedigrees with some of the best Brittanys in history at his kennels so you really can't go wrong if you're looking for a superb bird dog. From the start Eric was helpful and always answered my questions promptly (I had plenty of them). Always kept me updated on future litters and how the pups were doing. The kennel was clean and well kept. The process from start to finish was very easy and thorough. I highly recommend Eric and Smokingun Kennels for your next Brittany.

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.
