About Plum Creek Kennels

Our dogs are imported and first generation. Besides hunting professionally with our dogs, Plum Creek is competing and winning internationally, our studs Ultra, a French Champion and Tatoo is a French Recommended Stud. Tatoo, Ultra, and Doc all have their Trialer titles in France.

We have owned, trained and hunted brittanys for over 50 years. We were one of the first kennels to begin importing the Epagneul Bretons (French brittanys) from Europe 20+ years ago. We have 25 years experience in the French brittany breed training them, hunting them, breeding them and loving them.

Selective breeding with proven French brittanys of extreme skill and natural ability has resulted in the best French Brittany program in the country. We have spent many years traveling to France and establishing personal friendships, giving us the unique opportunity to select and import the best French brittany blood lines in Europe and establishing the superior lineage and talent our dogs have become known for.

Hunting is a way of life for Plum Creek French Brittanys. We own and operate a wild pheasant and grouse hunting lodge in South Dakota, Big Spur Lodge so the bar of expectation in the field for our French brittanys is necessarily quite high because our clients expect perfection in our dogs. Please check our website to explore all of our French brittany and Plum Creek info at

All parents are hip certified.
Breeding gun dogs for the foot hunter, companions for the home.

Thought you would enjoy seeing a picture of Gus with a limit of wild ND pheasants. He has quickly transitioned to wild birds and is very strong at tracking down wing broke birds, you would never know he is a January puppy, he is really maturing into a fantastic hunting dog and is a great companion. He has quite the Facebook following since we are always posting photos - everyone finds him adorable and he is full of mischief.

I wanted to check quickly to let you know Claude is doing so well and has become a wonderful partner afield and a much loved family member at home!
He is just starting his third hunting season and we had a terrific first hunt. His nose is top notch, he's steady and his retrieving has been excellent. We just love him. He's is the sweetest dog I have ever owned and my three young kids and all their friends just love him to death.
I hope you are well and having a tremendous autumn!
Jim and Claude

Kathy and Bill,

Here are some pictures of "Gus" - the puppy we picked up from you in March that was from a litter in January. He did really well in training and now we are working him on wild birds in North Dakota. Opening weekend was just to hot to hunt much but we were back this weekend - rainout on Friday but ended up with some birds today. He's still finding his way with the wild birds and they've been running on us some but he is getting the retrieving down just fine - attached are this first three retrieves and he did a great job finding the first one. We have a whole week in November so he'll get plenty of time to figure out how to corner those running birds. He's been a great addition to the family.

I wanted to send an update! After a long summer of training and hard work opening weekend in Iowa was finally upon us this past weekend! Lebowski born Jan 12 of this year, not even 10 months of age yet, was up to the challenge. Light rain fell on us as we pursued our first pheasants of the year. Lebowski wasted no time and held steady points from over 40+ yards, honored other dogs points, and found down birds we had been searching for for nearly 25 minutes. Bowski was the highlight of the outing both Saturday and Sunday. He out worked and out performed a 5 year old and 2 year old Brittany, and a 10 year old springer! He received much praise from all hunters in the group, and nearly brought me, (dad), to tears!!
What a prefect dog for a first time owner!

Kathy and Bill,
Wanted to let you know Scout is doing great. Exposed her to planted pigeons this past weekend which she demonstrated a great deal of drive and determination. Have been doing retrieving drills since we brought her home. She will retrieve for as long as I will throw the dummies. Not to hand yet but showing tons of natural ability. Below is a brief video of a retrieve from yesterday.

We couldn't be happier. Will keep you posted on our progress.

Hi Kathy and Bill!! Just checking in with an update on Kooper. He is doing great!! He has been pointing various animals in our yard, everything from butterflies to Robins to rabbits!! Potty training is going well!! We had him to the vet today for shots and he weighs 10.2 pounds. Our kids absolutely love him and so do we of course! He has been having lots of socialization with people and dogs of all sizes and breeds. Hope you can view the pictures along with this email!! Take care!! Melissa

Hi Kathy,
Just finally got a pic of Zeb, now 4 months old and on point. He is doing very well, is very smart. At 2 months he learned "sit, stay, come, fetch and can give you his paw, and other paw." He is very energetic and we are on our toes but love him and are so glad we got him from your kennel.

This is Cooper pointing a bird at the trainers this morning. Good report, said he has more bird drive than his pointers or shorthairs. Thanks for picking him for me. The blue quail are on a rebound this year, have quail lease full of blues. So Cooper will get lots of hunting his first year.

Hi Kathy and Bill,

We wanted to let you know what a happy puppy Bijou is. She loves us, other people, other doggies; she eats well; she sleeps well. Our veterinary clinic looks forward to seeing her because of her exuberance in all things; she doesn't even mind her shots. We could not be happier. Also, she is a beautiful, strong gal. Bob takes her out for some training every day (sometimes social, and sometimes oriented toward the later bird training), although she considers it just another form of fun, I'm sure.

Thank for your work effort with French Brittany litters. It shows great results.
