About Windy Acres French Brittanys
ABOVE: Molly is one of my litter from just weeks ago !. Out of Tori and Gar, Just 11 weeks and hot as a little pistol... Belongs to the Ott family and his comments will soon be in the comments below. Thanks for the pass.
(His comment soon to be read 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

Submitted by: Toby Bradshaw on Jul 07, 2016We've had our new pup (Theo, out of Jipzee and Hank) for a little over a week. He's sleeping at my feet right now after a long walk in the woods. I'm most impressed with the quality of socialization that Phil provides his pups. Theo is very easy to handle -- just relaxes during nail clipping, checking teeth, checking ears, pulling cactus spines, etc. Theo made the 1400 mile, 3-day road trip with no issues, sleeping on various people's laps and quiet in his crate in the motels at night. He comes on the run when called, learned to sit on command in about 5 minutes, walks on a leash like he has done it all his life, is very well-behaved off-leash, and has never met a human or dog that he didn't like. Bold and lively but not wild and crazy. REALLY looking forward to getting him on some valley quail this fall!
Submitted by: G Grafton on Jun 25, 2016WAK Email 24 June 2016 (Luke is a pup from 2014)
Hi Phil, Wanted to bring you up to date on Luke. He is doing much better than last summer here at the camp. Water is no longer a fear and I walked him like you suggested along the shore until he ran and played. Bird wings are also going smartly with nice points and holds on whoa command. I have joined a club near by and will take him, starting in Aug, on weekly placed hunts chukar and quail early, then, pheasants after those are mastered. I am very excited to hunt him this fall. We all want to send you a great big thanks for such a wonderful dog and your constant advice!
From the Grafton Family Greg, Sandra, Kyle and Kate Oh Yea Luke as well
Submitted by: Michael Grosz on Jun 05, 2016Zeus turned one this past week. He is our first dog, so we have often reached out to Phil at Windy Acres for tips and tricks on training and general dog stuff. Phil was more than happy to assist. Since we are lucky enough to be within driving distance, Phil was able to show us exactly what we needed to do. He was very supportive and willing to answer any follow up questions. We are very pleased with Zeus. He is a great family dog with lots of energy. He also has super hunting instincts. If I were to purchase another pup, I would definitely choose Windy Acres.
Submitted by: Judi Osteen on Jun 04, 2016My husband and I own 2 Brittany's, so when we decided to add a third dog, there wasn't any question what breed we wanted. We stumbled across Windy Acres in this publication and when we read the testimonials we thought that this is too good to be true. When I contacted Phil I was disappointed that he had sold all of his 2015 pups and it would be mid year 2016 before he would have a dog to sell to us-----what a bummer! But Phil said something to me that I still remember: "Some things good are worth waiting for." So that's what we did and he was absolutely right!
I cannot say enough good things about what it is like to work with Phil. He starts you off by providing you with a lengthy Information Package for New Clients. It's packed with everything you need to know to train your puppy to be a great field dog and to be well mannered in your home. When we visited Phil last year we were extremely impressed with his dogs and breeding philosophy. When your litter arrives you get weekly updates with pictures and videos of all the puppies. It has been pure delight to go through this process and to become great friends with this man of integrity, compassion, and honesty. Phil is completely dedicated to genetically responsible breeding of first class gun dogs. So, if that's what you're looking for, you owe it to yourself to call Phil at Windy Acres. We love you, Phil and see you in a few weeks.

Submitted by: Randy Sadler on Jun 01, 2016For all those interested in Windy Acres Dogs: I have a great male B/W from Phil now for 8 years. During that time Phil and I have become good friends. A few years ago he gave me a call and I drive over from my place in Wisconsin to help him with his training class. He had trained Doodle, my dog, perfectly and I wanted to thank him for that and help him out. It seems his life had gone south. He was told weeks earlier he had cancer, doing chemo and other meds. His help left after a day leaving him hurt and desperate for help!! that's why he called me he said! I have kept this under my hat but feel now is the time to say. He is so dedicated, he was so sick and worked so hard to do as he promised for those 7 dogs and owners he finished in time and all the dogs were excellent. Most people would have quit. He is one hell of a guy and I'm proud to call him a good friend. I highly recommend him, his dogs and His Integrity.
Submitted by: J and B Albertson on May 20, 2016Just a note to mention how much we appreciate Phil ( Windy Acres) and all he does for the client and the wonderful French Brittany. Our Male, Borax is now 3 years old. We waited a year for him and the entire time we were sent emails and videos of the parents and the hunting activity about them. When they whelped we were treated to many pictures and videos of the litter until our pick time came. With his expert knowledge of past pups and lines, we were able to select a pup that fit us perfectly. We carry him in our motorhome all over and Just Love him.!
We Highly recommend Phil, Windy Acres and all of his great dogs.

Submitted by: tyler ott on May 04, 2016Hey Phil, I just wanted to touch base with you and talk dog. Molly is doing very well! She is by far the smartest pup that I have ever had. She has her basic commands down, and is rounding third on the bell training. She goes for walks daily, with and without a leash. I think we are progressing very well. She shows interest and drive on almost everything we do. I wanted to thank you for the quality dog, and all the expert advice! I will keep giving you progress reports and health updates as we go along.
Submitted by: J. Donnellson on May 03, 2016(letter to WAK) Phil,
We wanted to give you an update on Isaac, Litter name (Ink) 2014, Amy and I and all 5 Kids LOVE this dog! I took him south, to a preserve on first hunt, like you suggested, and he pointed like an old pro at 8 months. My friend Jim ,hunting with me that day, had his 4 year old setter with and was so impressed.
By the way I followed exactly your training tips and documents and in one week he was house broke to the bell and sitting and HOLDING for his food each morning waiting to be released. I did no field training but the wing on a string, because we live in a larger city. Teaching him in short order ( 2 weeks tops) sit, stay, come, no, heel and lead training with heal. Just as you said he trusted me and I him! The field work as simply easy. Thanks for all the assistance over the phone and your, New Client Package. Yes we both read it many times.
I could write volumes about Isaac and the kids but I will tell you he is in a swap mode for bed time with each and EVERY one. Cathy, the 2 year old, has the most pull and gets him first every night. We all of the Donnellson family, simply Love this dog. In time there will be another one, From You! in our lives. ( My 11 year old son Andrew, wants another now!)
Thank You Again,
Jeff / Amy Donnellson
Submitted by: kevin christ on Apr 27, 2016Our 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.
Submitted by: Nora and Stanley Grant on Apr 23, 2016Phil, 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
