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 receive the "Grand Champion of the Field" Title in UKC history. Vern is also the first American bred and trained dog to receive 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!

To Mark, he’s not just selling you a dog. He’s put so much love and dedication into his dogs- they are family to him just as much or even more so as they come home with us and become family. He cares where each one goes- it’s not a breed and sell and done deal. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about this breed- I’d consider him an expert. He’s proud of his dogs and he’s always happy to help anyone with theirs even if their dog did not come from him. But one things for sure, his line of dogs are pretty darn awesome and it shows through each of them and the many achievements and awards they all hold. Our two French Brittany’s we have gotten from Mark have been the best bird dogs we’ve ever had. Thank you Mark for all the hard work you put into making this breed so wonderful!

Just wanted to say thank you! Nahiri is amazing! She got to run through some cover on the way home, didn't even phase her. Once we arrived home she was scooped up by the kids and played with them for hours, it was like she lived here for a while, she didn't even care about being in a new home! Thank you again for raising such incredible pups! Thanks for letting me stay at your house , meet all the dogs and play with the pups!

It is a good thing when your trainer wishes his other dogs had your dogs drive and intensity. I went and saw Marcel work on Wednesday and he is doing great. He has a non stop motor and is holding his points until flush consistently. One bird he pointed and held was struggling to fly while being flushed. Marcel never moved until the bird was up. I was expecting him to creep in and pounce due to the bird being only 3 to 4 feet away when he pointed. He did his job and held steady. This particular bird was the first one the trainer has shot for Marcel and he retrieved it to hand. He is progressing nicely and is doin great.

Indy is now 4.5 years old and doing great. Mark is a great guy to work with and as passionate as they come. While I don't hunt my dog as much as I'd like he still always produces in the field. Also his dogs make great house dogs. Can't be more satisfied with Mark and his operation.

Our dog,Sadie,just turned a year in May and has proven herself to be a most affectionate and loving companion.
She is incredibly athletic and amazes us with her speed and agility. She is a beautiful dog and we are often stopped by people asking what breed she is and commenting on her beautiful coat.
Sadie has really become part of our family and we are looking forward to hunting season in the fall.

Over a year has passed since I picked my dog up from Mark. I have had nothing but compliments on his temperament, intelligence, and overall athleticism. I would recommended Mark to anyone looking for a top notch French Brittany. He is a an excellent hunter and turned to be a great gundog. Thank you again.

We bought a French Brittany (Epagneul Breton) from L'Etoile du Nord Kennels and he is the best companion! Mark was so easy to deal with and very generous with his time and knowledge! His dogs are beautiful and it really shows in his puppies! I would highly recommend a puppy from this breeder!
