About Windy Acres French Brittanys
ABOVE: Mikka's first Hunt 2015
I got Mikka from Phil almost two years ago. The first year I sent her to Phil's hunting school and wow, what a great hunter year one! I was nervous going into this year, however, as I wasn't sure how much she would remember and how well she would listen. One our in the field and 6 birds later any sense of fear was completely gone and replaced with pure joy. Mikka did amazing! She pointed all 6 birds -- two of which I would have walked over and never known they were there. To top it off, I only winged the third bird so it was able to fly about 60 yards before it dropped. I have Mikka the "hunt dead" command and off she went. A few moments later she came trotting back, bird in her mouth, and dropped it right at my feet. She had never retrieved before that -- I was overjoyed!
I can honestly say that everything that happened on that hunt happened because of Phil. His early training and lessons, not only for Mikka but for me as well, were instrumental in laying down a great foundation. Everything Phil told me Mikka could do, and would do in the future has been 100% dead-on accurate. You can not go wrong by taking your dog to get trained by Phil -- weather its a pup or an older dog looking to fix some bad habits. Phil is the best decision you can make!! (Their testimonial from last year is being posted below soon>>)

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.

Submitted by: Audrey Todd-Davis on Dec 21, 2014On December 13, 2014, I married my best friend Glenn Davis. I have dated Glenn for about 4 years. When I met him, he had one of Phil's male dogs named Cody. I fell in Love with Cody!. What an amazing little man he is.It wasn't too long after meeting Glenn, that he realized how much I loved little Cody and he bought me my own little girl from Phil.Her name is Litl Gypie Helen Davis.I am not much of a hunter, as I have to tender of a heart for all animals, but I do enjoy spending time with Glenn and our fur-kids, weather it is hunting or just relaxing at home.Phil states on his web site that he raises dogs for lady and gentlemen hunters and their families too.YES HE DOES and I have to say, he is an expert at it as well.Both of our Britts are very accomplished hunters!.even though I ask Glenn to please miss once in a while when we are hunting. And yes my litl Gypsie looks at me as if to say MOM!!!!.In closing.Phil is known around our house as "Grandpa".we love him dearly! So if you are ever looking for a champion of a hunting dog and a fur-ever companion get it from Grandpa Phil.You won't be sorry.we sure Love our two!and we love you too Grandpa Phil.Cody and Litl Gypsie Davis's mom.Audrey Todd-Davis.
Submitted by: P Chapin on Nov 13, 2014Phil 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.
Submitted by: Royce L Heffelfinger on Oct 30, 2014We 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.
