About Plum Creek Kennels
Our dogs are imported and first generation. Plum Creek is competing and winning internationally, our stud Ultra is 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 22 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 relationships, 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 hunting lodge in South Dakota, Big Spur Lodge www.bigspur.com 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 www.french-brittany.com.
All parents are hip certified.
We are also trainers of all sporting breeds, and uniquely qualified French brittany trainers. We offer monthly training programs as well as individual training seminar packages and day training sessions. See our training website at www.dogpro.net.

Submitted by: David on Dec 01, 2013Hello, Bill and Kathy,
While paging through the new Pointing Dog Journal, I came across the picture of Tatoo. I recognized him immediately and sensed the loss even before I read your very moving tribute. I am fortunate to have one of your dogs whose mother, Aimee, was sired by Tatoo. Your name for her is Ginny de Plum Creek, born 3/7/11, sired by Ranger; we call her Reagan. She has been a great dog, all we could have hoped for and more. She was pointing birds at three months and quickly showed her breeding in early training. As the attached picture shows, Reagan looks amazingly like her parents--a true beauty! Perhaps not one of the most important characteristics to inherit but beauty is always a good thing!
My sympathy to both of you on this great loss. As well as the memories you have, be comforted by the many dogs like Reagan who have Tatoo's genes and are hunting wild birds wherever they may be found. I am sure I speak for all of us who are proud to say "my dog is a direct descendent of the great Tatoo".
Submitted by: William on Nov 29, 2013After reading your article in PDJ, my heart nearly broke. I got my first FB in September and simply cannot believe the absolute brilliance. After a life of bird dogs, I can honestly say that I have never beheld such an ingenious puppy. Yes, Plum Creek is in his pedigree. At six months old, he was born broke and has let me kill four pheasants over him so far with much innate class--the best nose I have ever personally seen with an personality I trust implicitly. I would hunt him anywhere. Sleeps in our bed and hunts like an old dog.
Being new to the breed, I have ascertained through careful study that you are the man. THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THESE NOBLE ANIMALS. Through your efforts, I have been blessed beyond my worth. Thank you also for putting feelings in words that will shape my evolving perception.

Submitted by: Bill on Apr 29, 2013Bill and Kathy, happy spring time! Woody's terrific. He is a handful but such such fun. Smart, super eager to please, sensitive, tough. HIs nose is awesome, pointing instinct fine, and his retrieving is unbelievable.
Thanks for making the breed the best it can be.
Submitted by: Richard on Apr 28, 2013Just wanted to update you on a pup I purchased last year. Did some work with her before season on pigeons, I did not want to push her to hard but hunted her with older dog in Wisconsin. On the last day of hunt she pointed her first bird , a woodcock. I then went to Montana and it was like the lighjt bulb went off, She was pointing and working birds like an older dog, this continued when I moved on to oregon for chukars and huns.
Needless to say I am well pleased with her. I did not want to push her too hard but I have never seen a pup come on like she did.
When I need another pup I will contact you.

Submitted by: Paul on Mar 05, 2013Dear Bill and Kathy,
Just thought I’d drop you a line with an update on Holt. He is doing very well. He is basically finished on all his obedience work and his exceptionally responsive to all his commands. He has a firm grasp on here, stay, whoa, lay down, and his name. He knows kennel real well and has never been a problem barker/whiner. I am working a lot on his retrieve on the training table and have him holding several different dummy types and walking up and down the table holding the dummies. As far as field work, I have had him out as much as the weather allows in Buffalo NY and he really enjoys being in the field. No problems with the primer pistol. I am starting to see his natural quartering pattern develop.
I am really enjoying this little guy.
Submitted by: Tex on Mar 05, 2013I got my Brittany from you guys two years ago .. She is fantastic ... A little quail hunting machine ... Taking her to North Dakota this October. Thanks ,,, she is my buddy.
Submitted by: Joe on Feb 15, 2013Kathy and Bill, thought you would enjoy hearing about Beau's first (non-training) actual bird hunt. I was hunting for chukar at a local preserve. As you may recall, Beau had his first bird exposure last fall in Wyoming on Sage Grouse, which we hunted on a private ranch and which he chased and wondered at their size and numbers. Then he was given some 'whoa' training and some pigeon training by my son for about a month. The result of all this was that my 14 month old French Brittany pointed and held his first ever hunted bird. He held point for about 2 minutes and then I flushed the bird and shot it.
Beau then pointed and held a second bird and my hunting partner missed the bird. Beau watched it and marked its landing and immediately went to the spot and again held point on that bird. He quartered close and healed when asked and came when I whistled.
I didn't need a leash or a check-cord at all. I was very proud of my pup on his first actual hunt.
Your breeding program really showed its value and effectiveness.
