About Smileys Smiling Bird Dogs

Smiley's Smiling Bird Dogs is nestled in a small valley of the Cumberland Plateau in Sparta, TN. I have been a bird hunter for 20 years and in those 20 years I have had many breeds of dogs, Pointers, Brittanys, Irish and English Setters and Weinmariners. I found good traits in all but my utmost favorite have to be the Brittanys . They are loyal and good natured as a pet and obedient and eager hunting companions. I have 3 children so the dogs are never shorted on love and attention. I just wanted to give back a little of what they have given me over the years. Come by and check out our little piece of heaven in the hills of Tennessee.

Hey Brad

Maci is a year old now and we just finished our first Southwest Virginia grouse season. She has been a joy to train ( very intelligent ) and a great hunting partner with good natural instincts. We flushed at least 31 grouse that I saw and Maci probably saw more than I. Maci did really well pointing the pen raised quail during training but, wild grouse are tougher and more cautious. At first we were mainly just flushing the birds but, I did manage to shoot several and Maci did very well at retrieving and learning what I expected from her. On the last day of the grouse season she had a beautiful/intense point on a pair of SWVA grouse. I walked in the birds flushed and I shot one and Maci retrieved it. A perfect end to our SWVA season. Maci still has more to learn and experience to gain but , she is a credit to the Brittany breed and her heritage. She is everything I wanted in a hunting companion.

Thank you Brad for your efforts with the Brittany breed.

Just received my puppy Brad Smiley. Brad was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and accommodating. The puppy is very smart and I look forward to many years of hunting together. I would recommend Brad to anyone considering a new puppy.

I received my pup about 3 weeks ago. He had just turned 6 weeks old. He is very smart and intelligent. Already knows to sit,stay, and shake!!! Lol. Since I first got him he has been a joy to have. He is very loyal and eager to please everyone. Brad made the transaction of getting my pup very easy. We talked thru text for about a week giving me updates and telling all about the pups and how they were bred. He is a real stand-up guy and I would diffanetly purchase another pup from him. He has good bloodlines and is trying his best to have outstanding liters. If anyone looking to buy a Brittany I would highly recommend him. If anyone is looking to buy and would like to ask me questions about my pup from him feel free to ask. Thank you brad for the puppy. Thanks Jeremy Pruitt!!!

Update on Hank. He is now right at 13 months old. We are thoroughly impressed. He just came back from Iowa where a trainer ran him on wild pheasant for a week. The trainer gave him high praise saying "he was the star for the week without a doubt." The trainer also mentioned how he was such an easy handling dog especially for his age and also commented on his incredible drive to hunt and how quick of a learner he was. Though wild pheasants can be a tough bird for a bird dog, Hank figured it out rather quickly which was no surprised to us. My dad and I have been bird hunting for years now and have had multiple brittany's and believe Hank is going to be the best one yet. I cant wait to see how he does when I take him grouse hunting this fall up north. If you want a good bird dog with great instincts and a lot of drive but also a great companion, Brad is your guy.

We recently got Hank, a roane and white male, from Brad at 8 weeks old. Now he's about 4 1/2 mos old and already very interested in birds. He was pointing a wing in the driveway at about 12 weeks old. Took him to South Dakota over Thanksgiving at only 3 1/2 months old and even though he didn't point quite yet he was very birdy and made some pretty unreal retrieves. He's extremely smart and quick to learn, and also has strong desire to please. I keep him as an indoor dog and he is very well tempered even at such a young age. Overall I'm very impressed with the dog and the bloodlines that Brad uses. He has some great dogs. I would recommend him to anyone who is seeking a good bird dog.

First, I'd like to say what a wonderful person Brad is to work with. I purchased a pup this fall, while I was overseas on a aircraft carrier. Brad did anything and everything he could to make it a wonderful experience. Since getting my pup a little over a month ago, she has proven herself wonderfully. She is a very birdy pup with a natural ability to find the birds and she also has a wonderful point. This pup not only is working hard, but she's my seven year olds best friend. Brad is a wonderful breeder and will be the only person I ever deal with if I was to ever get another Brittany.

I picked up my second puppy form Brad on Feb. 11. Both puppies are above average, in my opinion. The last one, Callee, is a real sweetheart. She is very eager to please and a quick study. If I do my part, I believe she is going to be a great one. I can't wait to see how she handles birds this season.

I got my puppy on Feb. 10th, 2012. We saw the full litter of pups, and they were beautiful. Very healthy and well taken care of.
My pup, BILL, has been so much fun to play with and to start training. He is smart and picks up on things very fast.
I would recommend these dogs to anyone looking for a Brittney. Good bloodline and genetics. Brad has the right formula. I will be a return customer. Morris Swafford

I got an orange and white female Brittany from Brad on July 8, 2011. Her bloodline includes both of Brad's current studs, Sam and Bert. Besides being absolutely gorgeous, she's very bright and extremely attentive. She's just over 9 weeks old now, and is already consistently following some basic commands. She's confident, energetic, and friendly, and she charms everyone she meets. She's absolutely at home out in the woods, from her very first trip. Brad was extremely accommodating and easy to work with, and his dogs are obviously quite happy. It's already very clear that our little girl (named Bonnie) is going to grow up into a fantastic dog. I just can't say enough about Brad, his family, and his dogs. Highly recommended! Thank you Brad. When it's time to get another Brittany, I'll check with you first.
