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 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!

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!

Just to let you know that Penny has been a fantastic Hunter this season. At seven months she is hunting like she is a five year old. I couldn't be happier with her. Joe

Charles is really good! Finished up another great pheasant season! He can't get enough of those ditch parrots! He is getting better every season and becoming one heck of a hunting buddy.

Hi Mark,

As you know Remy is about 8.5 months now. He insists on me hiking him in the Boise foothills outside of our house 2-3 times a week. I usually cover 7-8 miles in 2-2.5 hours - not sure on his mileage as I do not have a tracker on him - but I would guess he easily doubles me. He usually finds at least 1 covey of quail or 1-2 Hungarian partridge singles or doubles per outing, but today was definitely his best outing to date. It takes us about 30 minutes of hiking from the house to get out to areas with birds, so in a 2.5 hour outing he is in semi-decent bird area for about 1.5 hours give or take. Today he held solid points on 6 single huns, held 5/6 until I was within 15 feet - the 6th scared when I was still about 30 feet out, and he pushed another 2 groups of 2. He is definitely a handful at times, but it sure is fun to watch him learn more every time I take him out!

I want to thank Mark for getting me more involved in upland bird hunting than I would have become on my own. After visiting Mark's kennel with my son, who was getting one of Mark's French Brittany pups, I was given an opportunity by Mark to acquire one of his trained French Brittany females named Frances. After a little coaxing by Mark, I accepted his offer and have been much more involved with upland bird hunting since. Frances is a great dog and an excellent hunter. Mark has top notch dogs and does a great job training all his dogs. Frances will be an excellent teacher for my sons new dog. Thanks again Mark.
