About Windy Acres French Brittanys
ABOVE: Zeus on his first hunt at 5 months. He is from my Nell and Gar pairing last season. His Owner brought him to the farm for me to see. He pointed every bird I placed and loves to hunt. In a few months and with His Masterful owners training. He will become a super Dog.
(His testimonial is below )
Windy Acres is a small kennel located in bird country and croplands of South Central North Dakota near the SD boarder. For over 50 years the black nose Brittany has been a favorite of Phil and his friends. When we started the kennel there were just 7 Registered Epagneul Breton kennels in the country Wow how that has changed. The popularity of the breed and the eager buyers have increased that to way over 100 and counting.
All of our dogs are Duel Registered or tri registered UKC, AKC, NAVHDA. Proven excellent Hunters and Huntress. We do insure all breeding pairs are exceptional hunters.We cater to hunters and Family hunting dogs.
Our Lines are all superior and proven . We give a full 2 year guarantee on all our dogs.
We have several training plans and cater to all levels of training requirements. Phil has trained over 500 dogs and loves it.
Our desire is to become a kennel family with and for our clients, we strive to provide the best lines, proven breeding pairs and professional training and most of all superior Customer Service before and after the sale.
My goal is to breed for a client, not have a litter, and It is proven a good plan. Having only 2-3 litters can mean a wait, at times but clients tell me it was worth the wait to get a well fit dog for the field and family. I look forward to finding one for your family.
Also a Huge thank you all for the support Kind words and for Loving my dogs !!!
I love to, and am very proud to, show these dogs and everyone is invited to come visit for a field run any time.

Submitted by: Michael & Karen Grosz on Nov 04, 2015Update on Zeus. He was born on June 3, 2015. Since our last update earlier in the year he has grown considerably as now he has reached 25 pounds. He is extremely intelligent, tenacious and very receptive to training. On the many walks we've taken he has shown his fearlessness and assertiveness, not being afraid of going into tall grass or sniffing out a scent he wasn't familiar with. Since the start of hunting season, I've taken him in the field a few times (he is just barely 5 months old) and I am amazed at his hunting skills. He knew exactly what to do in the field without much training and has already pointed several birds. You can tell that he is bred to hunt. We absolutely adore Zeus as a member of our family.
Submitted by: Rick Ferguson on Oct 20, 2015We are thrilled with our French Brittany, Lana, born June 3, 2015. Lana is part of our family and surprises us daily with her agility and intelligence. Although she has not been professionally trained, it is exciting to watch her sniff animals and birds to include Grouse. This fearless dog also barks when something is not right to her to include strangers and deer.
We met Lana's parents and have nothing but praise for Phil whose professional breeding experience really shows in our great dog.
I would definitely recommend Windy Acres and hope to have Lana professionally trained there.
Submitted by: Barry Burtness on Oct 16, 2015Phil it's the start of Foxys 3rd season and she is doing awesome. She is finding and retrieving almost every bird shot. She has had a real good mixed bag of birds. From morning doves, partridge, grouse to pheasants. With the beginning of pheasant season last weekend Foxy has been a real joy. She always ends up with a rock solid point on the birds. And they usually flush within a couple feet of her nose after I walk up to her. I don't lose any running roosters anymore either. Foxy also follows my hand signals very well and goes right where I want her to go. Thanks again Phil for such a top notch dog.
Submitted by: Ben Peterson on Oct 03, 2015If you are looking for a French Brittany pup, choosing Windy Acres Kennel is the best decision you can make. By making this choice, as we were fortunate to do, the rest of your experience and future with your puppy will be easy and enjoyable! Most importantly, you will get an amazing dog as a member of your family. One year ago today we picked up Mikka, our first French Brittany from Phil. We drove 6 hrs. from Minneapolis in -20 degree weather to Napoleon, ND, Was it ever worth the drive! Phil had a warm meal ready for us and he took time to go over every little detail about what to expect with the puppy, training tips, how much to feed and when even how she will act in certain situations and much more. Everything was covered and what we find amazing, is he was 100% right about everything he told us. Mikka has been the best decision we have made. She is an extremely intelligent dog, curious about everything, happy in the house cuddling next to you on the couch or running outside all day. We like to brag that using Phil's tips we got Mikka to ring a bell to go outside and go potty the 3rd day we had her! She has done it ever since! At 7 months we sent her back to Phil's September hunt/obedience training class. WHAT A transformation! Both in the field and in the house! She is calmer, listens to anyone, many family and friends comment to us how well behaved she is. As Phil told us she has an amazing nose, and a natural huntress. Last fall we found that out very quickly! She pointed countless numbers of pheasants for us. Grouse hunted as well, in fact hunting better than older dogs who have been hunting many years! We highly recommend Phil's training class!! Mikka is by no means a perfect angel! she is still a puppy. She can be stubborn at times and defiantly gets in trouble some times
but! we cant imagine a better dog to have in our family! We give Phil and Windy Acres our highest recommendation. After you get a pup from him you are part of the Windy Acres Kennel Family, He is ALWAYS ready to answer questions about any aspect of your dog over the phone or in person. Also, Cooking a gourmet meal for you if you are lucky enough to stop by the kennel! He makes amazing walleye!!
You will not, I promise you, find a more knowledgeable, kinder, more generous and caring Breeder of this great breed than Phil. It was the best decision we made and we hope you make the same decision!
Submitted by: Joel and Christina Finn on Sep 14, 2015So we're halfway through Lindy's (Gracie/Gar) hunting training and we're so impressed! We have received consistent updates, emails, pictures and videos on her progress and have even had some phone conversations with Phil. He is always more than happy to answer our questions and goes above and beyond. Lindy seems to be really enjoying her training and as nervous as I was to send her for 4 weeks, I am very happy we decided to do it! Only 2 more weeks to go and we can't wait to pick her up and get in the field to see everything she has learned!
Submitted by: Joel and Christina Finn on Aug 29, 2015So we just dropped off our 14 month old girl Lindy (from Gracie/Gar). I've been nervous about sending her to hunting training for 4 weeks. We'll miss her a lot and my 2 year old is already asking where she is and says puppy is getting birdies! ;) But as usual Phil goes above and beyond to keep us updated and educated. Phil spent quite a bit of time going over everything today with Joel and answering all our questions. I know she is in great hands! The boys are so excited to pick her up at the end of the month and see her progress! Thanks Phil! We appreciate all you do for Lindy!
Submitted by: Michael & Karen Grosz on Jul 26, 2015We brought home Zeus about a week ago. He is our first pup and an awesome dog. Zeus is loyal and loving as he immediately bonded with us. We are very pleased with his puppy training progress as well. You can tell that Phil loves the breed and his dogs as this pup responds well. After the first night, Phil checked in with us on the first weekend and a week later. He is so knowledgeable and is patient and responsive to our questions. We are very pleased with Windy Acres Kennel and Phil. We can't wait until Zeus gets older and trained in the field. In you are interested in a French Brittany, we highly recommend Windy Acres.
Submitted by: Tim Purdon on Jun 02, 2015We brought or pup home in October 2014. Phil had trained her for a little under a year and he delivered a "well started" pup as promised. In fall 2014, on her second "real" hunt (less than a year old) she solid pointed two rooster pheasant in a tree row. VERY impressive for a pup so young. In our winter and spring 2015 walks, it appears that she will work very close to the hunter in the field. This will be a relief to my hunting partners who have grown tired of my constant yelling to control my other Brit. (He is not one of Phil's!) She was well trained for the field by Phil - no doubt about that. I am very optimistic about how she will preform this fall. I plan to update after her first full hunting season!
Submitted by: joe hysten on Apr 25, 2015I just want to send out a quick comment regarding the puppy I just got at 7 weeks of age, on April 13th from Phil. I was just astonished at the natural ability this puppy was showing at such an early age. The puppy became very loyal and attached to me from day one, she would go and meet the various family members, but would return to my feet after smelling and licking their hands; I began first throwing a glove for her to fetch, which she would do almost without much prompting, so I progressed to hiding the glove in weeds and telling her dead, she would use her nose, find the glove and bring it back to me. Just to sum up, her ability and willingness to learn, loyalty, and use of her nose are in the superior range. Note, she is my third French Brittany and I have had several German Wire haired Pointers, she is second to none.
Submitted by: M and K Freer on Jan 24, 2015Just wanted to share with you want a wonderful companion Josie has become. I picked her up from you almost three years ago. She is out of the Gypsy/Fin litter and her kennel name was Kami. She looks very much like Gypsy and has the same loving personality that we saw in Gypsy when we picked out our breeding. She turned out exactly as you said she would. Calm in the house and a fun loving dog outside. Her hunting ability's are far better than mine, which makes taking her out so much more fun. she loves retrieving, swimming and following scent. Her natural instinct's to hunt and how easy she was to train, still amaze me. Thank you for all your help and for adding such a perfect companion to our lives.
Mark and Karen
