About LEtoile du Nord kennels

I am a breeder of superior quality AKC/UKC Epagneul Bretons (French Brittany Spaniels). Bred for high natural hunting ability, and to be your companion by the fireplace after the hunt.

Home of GrCHF GRCH Vernon de L'Escarbot MH. The first Pointing dog of any breed to recieve the "Grand Champion of the Field" Title in UKC history. Vern is also the first American bred and trained dog to recieve a C.A.C.T in France. In addition to Trialing my dogs in AKC, UKC and Europe, I hunt my dogs extensively. By doing both I insure excellence in the field.

I am located north of Jamestown, in Sykeston North Dakota

Please feel free to call or email me. I am always happy to talk dogs!

My name Sean Fritzler. I'm a third generation bird hunting guide on the Crow Indian reservation in Montana. My experience with Mr. Dinsmore has been great! Mark always makes time to talk to you about your pup and how it is coming along and progressing. Mark truly cares about the dogs that he sells to you and wants you to be happy with your choice. Can't wait for the next one! Thanks Mark!

We bought my father a pup from Mark Dinsmore/L’Etoile du Nord Kennels. The pup was a surprise gift. The pups name is Georgia (aka ‘The Roan Rocket’ or ‘Porgie’). She is out of Vern x Ardoise.

Ardoise is my favorite!

Georgia is the most natural bird dog we’ve ever seen. She’s definitely “all” bird dog. She’s a little beast in the field and has a motor that just doesn’t quit. Bird findin’ fool. She’s very driven but yet very biddable.

The most impressive thing has been her steadiness on wild birds at a very young age. At three months old she was handling birds like a veteran.

Her range/cast is fabulous. She naturally adjusts according to the cover.
She’s a wonderful natural retriever, very soft mouth, brings our training quail back alive and unharmed, that’s with minimal training.

Mark is a wonderful guy and has unbelievable dogs. You can tell Mark loves his dogs and that his dogs are his life. Mark always has time for questions, whether over the phone or over email. He always makes you feel welcome and is very sincere. He is also very passionate about what he does and is a true advocate of EBs, like stated below.

We highly recommend Mark and his dogs. Our family is very proud to own a dog from Mark and will continue to work with Mark in the future.

Georgia loves life, loves everyone and is a little clown.

Can’t go wrong with an EB…especially one from L’Etoile Du Nord Kennels!

The first time you talk to Mark you know he loves his dogs. Furthermore, the first time you meet Mark in person you know the dogs are his life. I never felt more comfortable in dealing with an individual (he is much more than just a breeder) in selecting a stud as I did with Mark. We used his Vern twice now as stud. Since the first time contacting him, Mark has gone way past what is expected from a breeder. Always making time for our questions, and there have been many very long phone conversations. We had the opportunity to visit with Mark in ND a couple of times during the breedings. He has always made our family feel welcome. We believe Mark deeply cares about his dogs and the pups he raises but his passion goes past his dogs, he is a true advocate of the breed! I highly recommend working with Mark.

I had the pleasure of watching Vern here in Az when they held their national trials here...

Though I am into the American Brittany If I were to ever get into french Brittany aka Epaguel Bretons Vern is one dog I would definitely chose for the sire. He is well put together and has lots of drive and a very good looking dog to boot

if your seeking a french brittany You will not go wrong with Mark and his very special dog Vern or anything Mark is working on. He has a great eye and knows what he likes in his dogs
