I 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.

Hello 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.
Blessings,
Dale G.

I 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!

Hi 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!

We 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.

We 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.

We 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.

We recently purchased two Brittany pups from Eric Lowman's Smokingun Brittany's (8 week old "Chase" from the P and J's Rimrock by Smoke's Shooting Star litter, and a few weeks later, 8 week old "Trooper" from the DC Wild Mtns. Shake Ya Tailfeather by Winswept's War Bonnet litter). Eric was terrific to work with and kept us informed during Star's and Feather's pregnancies and after the pups were whelped. Both pups are very healthy, and have terrific personalities. Our vet was very impressed with their conformation, health and temperaments when we took them in for their first office visits. They do have very different temperaments (as expected, since they are from different litters), but what they have in common is that they are both handsome and are smart, smart, SMART. They are doing well with house training and although we have only had them for a few weeks they are already learning to walk on a leash, and are doing well with picking up new commands, including come and sit. We are delighted with our new boys and recommend Eric as a breeder.

Our experience with Eric Lowman's operation has been above all of our expectations. His knowledge of this wonderful breed and commitment to ensuring that his litters only come from strong blood lines convinced us that Smokingun Brittanys is quality breeder. In addition, he is a true gentleman.

We recently picked up our female pup from the P&J's Rimrock and Smoke's Shooting Star litter. This pup has shown an amazing amount of native intelligence and curiosity. I am looking forward to training this fine pup and allowing her the chance to show off her field skills.

I've had Addy for a little over two months and I couldn't be happier with her. She's very intelligent, beautifully marked, and highly trainable for a young pup with hardly any discipline. She's incredibly sweet and great with people and other dogs when we go out. I've taken her hiking a number of times, she's very responsive off-leash and is very good staying close by. Eric has been very helpful, informative, and professional from day one, providing regular updates to the conditions of the pups and even following up on scheduled vet trips after I took her home. He gave me more than ample time and information when it came to picking out my pup, letting me see the litter together and spending as much one on one time as I needed. If I had to do it all over again I would choose Eric and his kennel without hesitation.
