About Windy Acres French Brittanys

ABOVE: Izzie is a smallish male he has a huge heart and apparently likes the high country grouse hunting . Thanks for the pass.

(His comment has been submitted 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.

May you all have a Super year and Id like to say Thank You and God Bless to our New , Repeat and Future clients

Our Female of 11 weeks from Tori and Gar is a Smart pup. Good on sit, stay, come commands already!. Trying to start on a leas‎h but not a fan of that. Really plays well and rough houses with our Cairn terrier. Stays fairly close on walks. Not bothered by loud noises. Will try to keep you informed on progress.
Thanks Kevin

Phil, I was reading some of your testimonials and realized we had not written you in several years. At first we were unsure weather driving from Texas to North Dakota, driving by many other breeders was a smart idea? Now after 5 years we know it was a great idea!. After much deliberation, we named the little girl (litter name ) Heidi, Heidi Seemed to fit her. She is a joy! Stan and our son hunt her all the time in the hill country for quail and some pheasant hunting on a ranch that place them. Also went to Kansas last fall planning another trip this fall. I'm told a fine pointer and a great little retriever, that took 3 years, she would not pick up a bird and we called and asked about force fetch training her, you said "don't they are too soft wait a year till you do". Good advice. She started bringing birds back 4 months later and now is superb. I adore her as she is my house buddy all summer. Could not be happier or more proud of her.
Our son is getting married this summer, so I expect he will want a dog from you soon as well.
Hope your health is better ,as I read it is. and we wish you continued health and success. We Love your Dogs!.
Regards, Nora and Stan Grant & Heidi

From the very beginning it was evident that Phil Rogers cares deeply for his dogs and his reputation as a top breeder of French Brittanys. Phil is friendly, knowledgeable, and maintained outstanding communication with us throughout the whole process. We were able to watch our little pup grow through his email updates. The day we picked up "Mia" at Windy Acres we knew that she was going to be a great dog. She was calm and unafraid when we handled her. She was alert and inquisitive to her surroundings. The 2.5 hour ride home was a breeze- very different from our other dog (not one of Phil's). No crying, no squirming, and NO accidents. She slept in my lap the whole way, completely at ease with us and all of the new noises and smells around her. She is currently 9 weeks old, and already learning "come" "sit" "kennel" "stay" and "no". I try to take her with me everywhere to introduce her to new places, pets, and people. Everyone comments on how "chill" and pretty she is. We take long walks on our farm and she wants to keep up with my older dog. She shows a lot of interest in what our other dog does. She is learning quickly and I believe this will carry over to hunting season. I'll be sure to post more updates. Her sweet disposition, calmness, and sense of adventure are just what we were looking for in a dog.

Phil, I wanted to re-touch base with you after 6 years with Badger, AKA Badge. He is out of Nell and Gar 2010. Here in New Jersey we have little public hunting and it is guarded at that. I retired in 2014 and sent Badge to a trainer in Pa. Already a super house dog, I had not trained him to hunt at all. The trainer stated that for an older dog "he did amazing". I was so pleased and proud. I took 2 months off with 3 buddies of mine, to hunt this past fall in 4 states. Shooting and hunting many types of birds. In Georgia I got into Woodcock and some planted quail. Much the same, all the way back north into Va. with grouse and farm pheasants. I was so pleased with him and remembered your words when we picked him up ."" These dogs are a great Gentleman and Lady's hunting companion"". So true. He is amazing. I request you place me on the 2018 listing for another male pup. I want to hunt a pair as I get better and wiser in this sport. Ill call you soon.
I pray your health is better and you find peace in Life .
Sorry for the delay but words are not my thing.
God Bless
Bob

Hi Phil, Dropping you a line to let you know Jack has hunted almost every day with Jessie this past fall. We are both pleased, Me in the house behaviour and Jack in the great field dog. Your training has been amazing!!! Could not have asked for a better little girl. We are looking for another for next year if you would add us to your list? Please LOL. If I need to fill out another form let me know . This time we want a male but not to breed just to have a pair in the field. We hope you are feeling better and all is well.
God Bless
Cindy and Jack D.

We have two Indy Acres French Brittanys and they are great dogs, super pets and demons in the field. We have had hunting dogs for over 40 years, I've hunted over most breeds, and I've never enjoyed a breed as much.

Four years ago, we were looking for a new dog and reading these testimonials. This is where I found Windy Acres and Phil. The testimonials seemed too good to be true, so I contacted Phil and we started to get to know one another. Because of distance (East Coast of Canada for me), I asked Phil to pick our dog and train him for the year. Phil was in constant contact with us with pictures and videos and we felt as though we were there from Gillie's (Cody & Gracie) birth to graduation.

In October 2014, I few to ND and spent a week with Phil, working Gillie and receiving training on how to get the best out of him. This past September, I drove from Prince Edward Island (4,400 miles round trip) to spend more time with Phil and to give him a hand with the last week of hunting classes. While there, I hunted Gillie and Nell as a brace. Phil is amazing and knows dogs. I learned so much and he is always willing to share his knowledge. Nell is now retired from breeding and has made her home with us (Thank you Phil!) on PEI. After returning from ND, I hunted Nell and Gillie at least twice a week and I regularly reached my pheasant limit. Nell is an example of an amazing pointing dog with boundless energy and great instincts.

Phil knows genetics. His dogs all hunt before they are bred and the first litter is assessed closely to be sure they throw all the right characteristics. He has an ability to match dogs with people so that all are happy. He has lots of time for your questions and his suggestions are always on the money. His dogs are smart, easy to train, affectionate and have natural hunting abilities. When it is not hunting season, we walk them on local trails and receive great compliments about their good behaviour.

Obviously, we are fans and highly recommend Phil, Windy Acres and his French Brittanys. Talk to Phil about your next dog. You will not be disappointed. With all the pheasants these dogs found, I had to get more recipes from Phil!

I grew up hunting with Springer Spaniels for 30+ years and wanted to make a switch to a French Brittany. I contacted Phil regarding puppies and questions/concerns about the French Brittany Breed and he is a wealth of knowledge about the breed. Over a two week period, we had over 3 hours of phone conversations about the breed and hunting, even though he didn't have a puppy for me to purchase at the time. Phil helped me get in contact with two other reputable breeders that had puppies in the time frame we were looking. I purchased one. He shared an ebook with me regarding training, again, even though we were not purchasing a puppy from him. This ebook contained many wonderful tips to use with training a new puppy. I don't know many people who would spend so much time without getting anything in return. It really just shows how much he cares about the breed and the dogs. I appreciate it all! Thank you Phil and Windy Acres.

Phil:
Have been meaning to drop you a note with an update on Frenchie. You Christmas letter inspired me to do so.
First the bad news. We had to put our older dog, Louis, down in early September. At 13, old age just got to him. We miss him every day, but he had a great run.
Luckily for us Frenchie was already in the house when this happened and that has eased our transition a great deal. We are lucky to have her. As a pet, she has come a long way in the year she has been with us. Mischievous (in a good way) and hungry for love an attention. My wife an daughter have really taken to her. She know sleeps in the bed with us every night.
In the field, she had a great first full season. The best compliment I can give to you as her trainer is that I never once all fall even thought about the need to use the electronic collar on her because she was ranging too far away form me in the field. There was never a need. Not once. She works close and very steady. Because of this she EXCELS hunting tree rows. My hunting party (we have 20 years together and some have been hunting for 50) say she is the best tree row dog we have ever had. She never gets too excited and so she does not spook/run the birds. She also has great potential with grouse. She had several really nice points early in grouse season that were wasted (by me) as I was still learning how to read her. I am very confident that I am going to shoot a ton of grouse over her.
Things we need to work on? Well, she has not discovered yet that retrieving is part of her portfolio. She will run to a downed bird and pin it. But she won't pick it up. Any suggestions on how I can work on that with her through spring and summer?
We are incredibly happy with Frenchie. She is a great pet and has the potential to be a truly special hunting dog. Simply put, she has made me a better dog handler and better hunter. We could not be more satisfied with her or with our experience with Windy Acres.
Thanks Phil!
Merry Christmas!
Tim
