Ms. Sherry Ebert is one of the best Gundog trainers in the US. She purchased From a 2012 litter from Gar and Fiona a male pup Now Named Cooper. She sent the following. Again We are extremely Proud of this.
Hi Phil, sorry so long getting to this but, you know how my winters go with going back and forth from the south. Anyway we all love Cooper he is great. A really good friend of ours wife passed away and we let him have Cooper to keep him occupied and he is doing a great job. He will be coming back here the end of May for the summer. Our friend has already gotten all his info and forms for the trials in his area. He hopes to be able to Hunt test him and also AKC walking trial him. He lives in Mo. so there are not allot of Brittany trials that let french Britts in but there are some and the all breed he can run in. He is very excited. I worked him in Ga. and Tx. before we gave him up and I am sending photo of him in Ga. So far he is all we expected.no problems and we all love him very much, I know this summer's going to be really a good time with him.
Thanks again will talk to you soon Hope all is well with you and I am sorry have not gotten to do this sooner. Best of summers. Sherry

Mr. Dave Walker and his Bride Fay Purchased a B/W Pup from a Gar and Fiona litter last spring.
Windy Acres is Honored by this.
Hey Phil.....was just thinking 'bout you, Icy is doing really good on her birds & is improving daily. We have had a bitter winter since Christmas & Dave has mostly been hybernating 'til now. So all the critters have been put on hold 'til this past week. Icy is a character! She has this bark at dinner time & won't shut up. She's very pretty & her coat shines chrome black. Her conformation is perfect & just wish she was showable. She is a people lover as well.
I Am glad to report that Dave likes her & hopefully will become his hunting partner in the fall. Yes, she is a "kick" but smart. Last May she got to go to the Ut. seminar w/ us. There was another blk/wh female there too. I was happy that Dave used Icy as a demo for a young age. We leave Thurs. for Ut., but different guy is putting it on & different area.
Have a good summer w/ the dogs.....
Sorry for the delay in checking in!
Fay & Dave....Icy too!

Absolutely amazing Pup from Windy Acres!!!!
She's so incredibly intuitive with a wonderful flare for etiquette. Almost as if she has a decade of wisdom at only 7/8 weeks of age. Knows when it's play time, nap time, FOOD TIME(of course), mellow time, and night-night time. She's also learning behavior limits and household boundaries at breakneck speeds.
What a brilliantly astonishing temperament. She's already ingratiated herself with the entire family and has without question, become the most popular family member. Inconceivably impressive pooch !!!

Thank you Phil !!!!

April 26, 2013 I have an awesome little pup from Fin & Nell formerly Beth. Her new name is "Foxy" and she's 10 wks old and is doing unbelievably well. Foxy was pretty much house trained in under 2 wks and was ringing the potty bell consistantly in 5 days. She is aready a little retrieving machine with pheasant wings. She did some pointing already at a little over 7 wks old on some of last falls pheasant droppings. Pretty amazing. She knows a whole list of commands already. She is unbeleivably smart. Great with people and other dogs. Just a joy to be with. And if you have any training questions Phil is always there for you. He loves to here how his puppies are doing. He really knows his dogs. And is honest. If you're looking for an exeptional French Britt I highly recommend Phil. Take Care-Phil

Everything is going great! Captain is quite the ball of energy these days, at least for about 45 minutes until he is ready for another nap! We are hoping to get him into a puppy kindergarten class starting next week.
I weighed him a few days ago and if I'm remembering correctly he was about 4.5 lbs. Second, he is very sweet, but he loves to play and sometimes play rough! and I realize part of it it from his puppy teething. crating him if necessary.
Anyway, we love him and he definitely has a spot in everyone's hearts. Have the other pups gone to their homes yet? Hope the moms are doing well, and you too!

Doolin is celebrating his one year old birthday today (Gypsy & Finn). He is everything you promised he would be and more, much more. You picked us a winner!!!
He knows about 30 commands, words, gestures and voice inflections. He is a ball of energy always looking for fun and adventure.
He is my constant and steady companion. We are well pleased and I am certain Doolin feels the same. HE IS A GOOD DOG!!!!
Hope all is well.

Bailey is doing so good he hunted really well this fall with grouse and pheasant. He is just amazing! We are so happy with him and I must say Bailey and Pierre our other French Brittany get along quite well. Bailey likes to bug him at times as he still has the pup in him but overall he is a great dog. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Bill and Mary DeVries, Walker, MN

Iím a pheasant hunting outfitter in North Dakota. Iíve hunted over many different breeds in the last 20 years. I still believe you will not find a higher quality pointing dog than a French Brittany. The breed is close working in the field and a great family dog. My dogs are handled by many different hunters and they adapt quickly and do their job with very little input from the hunters.
I met Phil last year when we were looking for a new dog to join our pheasant hunting family. I described the traits I was looking for and opted to have Phil pick the dog and train it too. What Phil produced was a rooster pointing machine called Mac. The dog has a beautiful disposition and is a great pointer at 8 months old. I couldnít be happier with the dog and the training. Great job Phil! We will be doing business again.
