Phil another great trip with Coral, Just returned from Montana with the dogs. Birds were quite thin this year but we still managed to get 25 in a couple of weeks. Pearl, my 10 year-old lab is now supposed to be dying of kidney disease but I think she has other ideas. She hunted great and had no problems keeping up. Lots of bounce in her step for a dog her age.An amazing dog. And speaking of amazing .Windy Acres Coral was absolutely astounding this fall! She is nuts for upland hunting. I don't think she gave up three false points in three weeks! She even passed on a porcupine in a thicket. Too bad the other guy's dog didn't! Cost him a nasty vet bill. I have no trouble calling her off jackrabbits or deer. Coral has turned into a stunning pointing dog. A natural. No need for check cords or whoa barrels. She will pin them down until either myself or the flushers arrive. She will retrieve cripples if I'm hunting her alone. A dead bird she'll usually just stand over it but cripples she'll catch and bring to me. If I hunt her more alone I think I'll have better luck with retrieving. With the Lab along I'm not really worried about it in any event. Thanks again for your great dog.

We had an unbelievable experience with Phil Rogers on December 22, 2014. It was 35 below and Phil asked us out to his home for dinner. He prepared a feast for us and showed us our new puppy and her mother as well. The next morning we were to pick up our puppy at Phil's. It was still 35 below and the power had gone out in town and Phil had our puppy ready for us as soon as I could get my car started. The beauty of his area is the winter is breathtaking. Our young female Brittany, Gracy, is the love of our life. Recently left her at a kennel for two weeks and the lady, who has run the kennel for 8 years, stated she has never had a more intelligent dog. Phil is just the best person in the world to get a puppy from.

This week I drove down to Napoleon to do some training with Phil and Lindy (my 15 week old pup). We spent 4 hours with Phil going over everything from very early field training with Lindy to training for me. We also got to introduce Lindy to some live birds which was great! Even though Lindy is still so young, we wanted to make sure we were getting her started in the right direction.

Phil is so patient and answered all of my questions. I feel great knowing that I have a superb breed of dog and a great breeder that will answer any of my questions even after taking my pup home.

Last year we started getting into upland bird hunting a lot more. We found out the hard way that a dog can increase your productivity enormously. That's when I started looking for a hunting dog. That's when a person finds out how many dogs there are to choose from. When all the dust settled Windy Acres was the last dog standing( In our case that is ). We took a trip down to the farm to check out this wonderful French Brittany breed. Upon arrival we where greeted by Phil and five beautiful well behaved Britt's. We where invited in to learn more about this wonderful breed. We are still trying to remember everything that was discussed, Phil's knowledge was endless. We then went outside to watch the parents of our soon to be puppy in the field. We watched three different dogs work the fields, they never got to far out. The dogs always knew where we were and hunted in front of us. If we stopped they came to us, as soon as we moved they were right back out on the hunt. Every dog hunted the same way. It was wonderful to see them excited to find the birds. Phil is an amazing, caring, breeder and trainer. We are sold on the French Brittany so much so, we are on the list for two pups. The Britt's are not just a hunting companion, they are definitely affectionate and well behaved indoor family dogs as well. If you hunt you owe it to yourself to look further into Phil and his wonderful French Brittany Spaniels. Thank you Phil for your knowledge and hospitality, looking forward to seeing you and all your Britt's soon!

We have been working with Phil for almost a year, from the time we decided we wanted one of his pups, waiting for our litter to be born, watching them grow, choosing the right pup for our family, and now bringing her home. We have emailed countless times with questions throughout the process, called several times as well as driving to the kennel to visit. We took our pup, Lindy J, home just over 6 weeks ago... she is a liver tri female from Gracie and Gar. We absolutely love her and she is very good with our 3 kids already... even our 15 month old. She is incredibly smart, and learned several commands as well as ringing her bell to go outside in such a short time. She is absolutely beautiful... we get comments and questions all the time as to her breed and breeder because her color is so unique... she even won our local cutest puppy contest a couple weeks after we brought her home, which was probably the highlight of our kids year so far! Phil is great to work with. Has answered our never ending questions and been such a huge support for us beginning our training. My husband is heading up with Lindy in a couple weeks to have Phil help us get moving in the right direction with field training. We are so pleased with our decision to get Lindy from Windy Acres. Having a great family dog was just as important to me as having a great hunting dog was to my husband... definitely made the right decision!

Phil,
First of all, we want to let you know how much we enjoyed the week by week videos you sent us highlighting each puppy in the liter. We always looked forward to Sunday mornings.

We also wanted to drop you a note regarding Tori. As you told us, she's got a little spunk in her, which we absolutely love. At nine weeks she was retrieving a ball. At 11 weeks she was pointing a pheasant wing. She comes to a whistle, sits, stays, releases at okay.

She always has her nose to the ground ready to jump into the next bush to find the birds. She also loves, loves the water, already venturing in the lake following our other dog.

Wanted to give an update on "Briggs" after a full season and now almost a full offseason prior to him turning two in December. Phil's training is still in my dogs brain. A simple look or a 'tisk' sound is all that is needed. I walk him daily on anything wild and even though the birds, rabbits, etc. don't hold tight, he still points. He may be a great waterfowl dog if I ever got into that. Hard to keep him out of the lake! Thanks again to Phil and his training. A boot camp refresher may be in store just to take my dog to the upper levels!!!

Phil,
Just a note to let your readers know that Luc has turned a year old and has become quite the bird dog.
Worked all summer with him in the field which has paid off. Got his first pheasant at 9 months. Our last trip was to Peck Idaho for pheasant. It was his first real test. With six of my best pheasant hunting buddies, I was a little skeptical on his abilities at this young age. All I can say is he made me real proud! In the two days of hunting he pointed and retrieved over 50 Pheasant and Chucker.
His instincts are amazing! Wish I was able to post a few pics here. I will be talking to you about dog #2 for the Spring of 2015.

Thank you Sir!

Peter

Phil, I thought I would give you an update on Grady. He is three now and really hitting his stride. I have hunted him since he was 7 months old and he continues to improve each and every season. He has a great nose and has retrieved to hand since he started to hunt. He works close and responds to commands in the field without using the collar. Solid on point and does a great job locating the birds. He is a great companion in the house and loves everyone and all other dogs. When I put him in the field he is a completely different dog with no desire to be petted just wants to hunt. He has been a great experience and all my friends cant wait to hunt with Grady.

I have a 11 1/2 month old French Brittany I bought from Phil named Foxy. She was already beginning to point at 7 weeks old due to her natural abilities. She was finding and retieving pheasant wings at a very early age as well. So I had a feeling she would be a pretty good pup. Little did I know how good. At 5 months old Foxy was retrieving fom water. In September she went to Phils boot camp and came back an eager hunting machine. Foxy was a lot better around the house also after boot camp. This years pheasant season was my best ever. Foxy did some pretty amazing points where the birds held very tight. She pointed 39 birds and retrieved 15 of the 17 birds shot. Pretty awesome for a young pup lees than a year old. If your interested in a good French Britt go see Phil. You can't go wrong. Thankyou Phil!!!
