We got our first French Brittany twelve years ago,  It was several years after having Bella Anne that we decided to breed. We love the beauty, temperament, size, personality, and most of all their willingness to please "YOU".   Our pups are out of our own hunting stock .."Yes" we hunt our own dogs.  Bringing together the best from the present, and past for the future. All our our dogs has many champions in their pedigree's... we will be glad to send you a copy of their pedigree upon request.  French Brittany's make wonderful companions/hunters/family pets for the whole family that will last a lifetime.  We love our dogs, and we love what we do, and it is very satisfying for us to connect quality  dogs, and pups with families.

Finn from Chippewa farms could not be any better! He was a hard working and successful bird hunter from the age of 4 months. He was first pointing quail at age 2 months! He is also really good as a pet too...great with my two girls.

The best and most wonderful place to provide healthy and loving French Brittany's. John and Melody are the best. I have own two of their dogs and can honestly say those dogs have been the sweetest and most loving dogs you could ask for.

Hi Melody,
Thought you might like this picture of me and Hank after his first hunt. Got a whole slew of quail.

Also, I gave your contact info to Hank's trainer, Paul Wright. Paul was raving about hank's natural abiility to his friend, Chuck Clabblers -who is in the market for a new bird dog. With Paul having trained thousands of dogs, it's a huge compliment to have him speak so highly of Hank. I believe Paul emailed you this morning about the possibility of another Lacey/Cash litter.

I train gundogs, hunt test dogs (NAVHDA, VDD, BSS, HRC), and occasional trial dogs (AFTCA, AKC. BSS) for the public. Recently, I had one of your Brits, Hank, brought to me by Alex Large for some puppy work, i.e., opportunities and exposure to birds in the field, gun fire, the world at large, etc. I was most impressed with Hank's natural qualities and performance.

Do you plan to do a repeat breeding of Lacey and Cash. If so please let me know.

Rudy's first grouse. He is such a natural !! He ended up pointing at least a dozen birds! But his dad only shot four. Pretty good for a 7 month old pup! Guess we need to get him out more.

Hi, Steeles. I hope all is well at Chippewa Farms. I thought you might enjoy a couple of recent shots of Henry. In a few days Henry will join us on his first trip out west. He will go with us to Oxford (MS), New Orleans, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Santa Fe, and several cities is Colorado. We'll probably come back through Oklahoma too. I calculated that after this summer he will have been to at least 21 states with us. He's a very good traveler.

Dear Melody,
I hope you and your family are doing well!
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how our "baby" Max is doing.
He is an amazing puppy and we just love him to pieces! He is super smart and fits in our family perfectly.
He is house broken and has been for some time. We discovered he would sit quietly by the door when he needed to go out but we wouldn't always notice. So we got a bell and we taught him to ring it. It is so cute! As you said, yes, he is quite a chewer, but he has not destroyed anything of ours and knows to chew only his toys. (Although he does make off with a few of the kids toys just to get their attention sometimes!)
He also knows how to sit and is doing well learning not to jump when people come over.
He chooses each night who he is going to sleep with and he mostly chooses to sleep with our little girl. She loves this because her brothers share a room and she is alone.
My husband thinks Max would be a great hunting dog. Initially he wasn't going to use him as a bird dog, but he is now thinking he may!
Max gets crazy when the kids are outside and he cannot be with them. He wants to be part of the fun. We take him with us just about everywhere we go and even our friends who are not dog people love him and let him in their home. He even gets along with their cats.
Speaking of that, he loves our guinea pigs too and they like him as well! They used to be timid but it seems since he got here they are more friendly. Maybe they feel protected by him.
Last weekend we had him at a winery and friends of our asked us about where we got Max. They are now interested in getting a pup of their own. I gave them your info.
You are a delight to work with and we feel blessed! Just know that is puppy is spoiled and loved so much!!
Talk to you soon!!!

Love, Debi Cruge
