About Plum Creek Kennels

Plum Creek Kennels - Breeding gun dogs for the foot hunter, companions for the home.

Our dogs are imported and first generation imports. Besides hunting professionally with our dogs, Plum Creek is competing and winning internationally. Tatoo, Ultra, and Doc all got their Trialer titles in France and Ultra received a French Champion title while Tatoo became the first and only French Recommended Stud in America.

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. All parents are hip certified.

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 have hunted our dogs professionally with our hunting clients for three decades 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

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

Bill and Kathleen have written a book on French brittanys and it is now published and available for purchase. This is the first book that's been written in this country specifically for French brittanys. Our book includes general information on the French Brittany, L' Epagneul Breton, some history of the breed, an indepth study of the breed standard, puppy advice and training, starting your pup, building passion, field and whoa training, hunting and full color pictures of wonderful Epagneul Bretons. You can go to our website get a copy.

Hello Bill and Kathy. Hope this finds you both doing well. Thought that I would touch base re: Maggie. She turned 1 on 6/14/17. Out of Harlow and Indy.
We are so pleased with her development. Wonderful companion and house/lap dog, and an Olympic athlete in the field. I have hunted primarily pheasants my entire life, and she is the hardest working dog that I have owned. Bill, I have brought her along slowly, per your advice, and let her be a pup. Thanks for our little girl, we love her to pieces. Mike

Hi, just a quick note to say thank you for a perfect, perfect pup! Best friends with my shorthair who's starting to act like a frenchy thanks to the pup! It's like a Disney movie. Thanks again.

Nibbs is doing great, he knows his name and comes to it. He will retrieve a rope to hand and is almost completely house trained already. He has a great nose. He seems very smart and brave. Thanks Dennis

Bill and Kathy,

Doc got his first wild bird in Townsend Montana at ten months old.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful pup. Incredible nose and so much desire to hunt.

Hi Bill and Kathy,

Just thought you might want an update on Traveller now that he's done with training. He's had a good year on pheasants in South Dakota, and even better got his first covey of wild quail back home on my family's farm in Missouri this week. I couldn't be more pleased with him as a great hunting dog and a great house dog-he steals my pillow every night when we go to bed!

Just wanted to let you know Aeb is doing wonderful. Our granddaughter loves him more than she loves us. Everybody that sees him thinks he is adorable.

This is Thalassa de Plum Creek (Katie) a week after her 14th birthday. It has been a great 14 years with her and hoping for more healthy years.

Dear Bill & Kathy,
Just a note to say hi and catch you up on Buster. Buster was produced by Tatoo and Roxi. He is a good dog and I have enjoyed him very much. I'm sending you a copy of the recent edition of Upland Almanac so you can read the article about him.
At present Buster has had over 1,000 ruffed grouse killed over his points. There are very few dogs of any breed that have experienced what Buster has in the ruffed grouse coverts. As you know, the grouse is very challenging for most people to kill because it seldom presents a clear shot. That is one reason why for generations of upland bird hunters the ruffed grouse is the "king of the upland gamebirds". The King still sits on his throne, however Buster is way more than a match for the king.
Buster is extremely healthy at 10 years old. I am very aware that one's health can change quickly but no one takes better care of their dog than I do. I will try and kill 500 more grouse over his points.
Buster has no official titles, no ribbons and no trophies. He is just the "Grouse Commander" and I am very fond of him. Ian

Extremely pleased with our family addition Maiya. She is learning lots from wild pheasants and grouse. This photo was taken last week in North Dakota. We got into some Huns too.

Great personality and crazy on birds!! That's my girl Maiya.
